Poor finishing, but glad to see more develop on the ground rather than useless
RSL controlled the game, no one could get that one last touch to put the chances
away. Hopes of a Supporter's Shield are slipping away.
No question in my mind that RSL outplayed Toronto, but they just couldn't finish
their numerous scoring chances.RSL missed an opportunity to gain 2
points on both Dallas and Seattle and 3 points on LA. Instead the lose 1 point
to Dallas and Seattle and 3 points to Colorado. With 8 of the final
12 on the road RSL will need to return to their 2010 road form or they will
likely find themselves in one of the wildcard spots. There was one
bright spot in the game, the moment when Paulo Jr. entered the game.
Current table (combined east and west) in terms of points per match:LA
Galaxy 1.92FC Dallas 1.72Seattle Sounders FC 1.68Real Salt
Lake 1.64Columbus Crew 1.54Colorado Rapids 1.54Philadelphia
Union 1.48RSL would have been in second place with 1.77 points per
match if they had won yesterday...
