Is it a complete bummer that RSL didn't win CONCACAF? Yes. But they are still
really good. There is still a lot to win this year and they can still make it
back to CONCACAF. It's a long road, but it can be done.
Can't wait to get streakin again.
While watching the last match against Portland, RSL looked overmatched. They
were extrememly slow compared with Portland. It seemed as though they didn't
care to play the game after the loss to Mexico. I hope they can get their
priorities back nad start playing like they were before. Go RSL!
We do need to realize that RSL has been extremely overhyped in the last few
weeks. Are they good? Yes. But I don't know if I would say they are the best in
MLS right now. It is going to be a dogfight in the next month or spot and unless
Kreis is able to address a handful of weaknesses RSL may stand on the outside
looking in after the first weeks of playoffs. Saba needs to get healthy or not
play 70+ minutes a game, we need a more solid forward than Espindola and our
midfield needs to solidify and start working better together. Call me nit picky,
but I haven't seen a quality game from RSL all year--except maybe against the
Galaxy who were w/o some major players.
It's still the beginning of a long season. RSL has the time to pick up the
pieces and put them back together.
I believe we have a few home games in a row coming up. Good for a team that
needs a boost.
