Damn it Pappa. Beat the keeper.
chicago has had the better of the half after the first 10-15 minutes
Oh Pardo. Damn nice save.
thot pardo was gonna get that one - almost a top class goal but not quite enough on it
Eat it Chivas!
tbh, chicago deserved the win, and i was about to be a a bit disappointed when i thot it was gonna end in a draw. pappa saves the day with 30 seconds left
Good goal. Good win. Chivas' defense looked awful in the last 5-10, both Pardo and Pappa had miles of space to shoot. Glad Pappa took his, because I thought Pardo should have gone a little more for power and a little less for beauty. It was a well placed shot, but looked like it was real slow, and Kennedy didn't seem to have to much trouble moving to it.
Pappa saves the day though.
Chivas blows goats!
Bolded for truth.
there was a lot of times chivas midfield gave a lot of space but chicago just wasted it at times and lumped the ball aimlessly into the chivas back 4
still, after a crappy first 10 minutes of the 2nd half, chicago recovered well and dominated most of the rest of the half
Frank coaches better from the suite.
Happy Cuatro de Mayo mis tacos. Tenemos 3 puntos esta noche . . . . we'll take'em.
SJ looked better in goal tonite - looked more confident and handled the crosses better
Berry looked good. Nyarko had a pretty good match, lots of hustle. Pappa looked fairly good even before the goal, aside from a couple times he lost the ball trying to take on 2-3 defenders.
oduro wasnt sharp. arne was adequate aside from a couple clearances that didnt get out of the box. he needs to shake that rust off.
Pretty solid game overall that was kept close by a really good goalkeeper performance by Kennedy. I thought the PK was iffy, but mainly because I thought it was outside the box. Good to see Berry (who looked really promising tonight) score the equalizer minutes later.
Grazzini still gets knocked down too easily, but he provided another magic pass on the Berry goal and was influential throughout. I thought Robayo did well in the CAM position for the final 15 minutes, and contributed to the winner.
Oduro seemed a bit off his game again. He was well-covered for the most part, but his touch is really letting him down. I thought the Puppo substitution was too late to make a difference, but he provided the game winning assist.
Man, that was a pretty ass play for the goal. For the small amount of time that Robayo, Puppo and Pappa spend on the pitch together it sure as hell seemed like they understood each other well on that play. The dummy by Robayo, the layoff by Puppo and the shot by Pappa were all class.
Well deserved win. Chivas with no killer instinct, looked like they were happy with a draw and forgot to play the last 5 minutes.
I like Berry .I think he will improve .Good composure , he can read game and like his anticipation .
What a great game!
The last sequence that lead to the Pappa golazo game winner was a clinic...
Robayo is starting to look very good.
With Berry in the starting lineup...who sits?
It should have been a red. The ref must have not seen the kick. Totally stupid from Oduro. Very lucky.
Berry did have a good game. He looks more composed on the ball than Anibaba under pressure. His passing was solid out of the back but I don't think it means he's an automatic starter. This is a long season and Gibbs is done for.awhile. Berry will get his minutes in the Open Cup and other defenders are bound to get suspensions or some type of injury. Anibaba and Friedrich have been fine in the back in my opinion. The only debate when it comes to defense seems to be Tornaghi and Johnson.
Pause. We can bring back the beloved 3-5-2.
That little tackle by Robayo win the ball for Pappa (didn't score tho) was what his highlight reel was full of. This tenacity is what we've been lacking.
Well Puppo showed in about 7 minutes that he' a better forward than Nyarko, who had a howler of a night controlling the ball
I'll take the three points but before we start anointing ourselves the second coming of 1970 Brasil, I think it's worth noting that we again barely beat a team with a losing record.
That bit of perspective acknowledged, it is nice to see different players stepping up to contribute when a few regulars like Oduro and Nyarko didn't bring it. Berry had a decent outing. The PK was weak sauce but I guess the fact that we still had 11 men on the field after Oduro should have been sent off makes up for it. Robayo looked better than he has since he got here. Let's hope his improvement continues on a consistent basis.
The sequence the led up to our second goal was a thing of beauty. It's a pity we don't see more of that kind of play in the final third or our attack.
