Agree on Becks Skydog - I loved this quote: On Landon - he has been involved in 9 out of our 18 goals since the break. Ever since he got moved. Can't argue with those stats. I have no interest in seeing him on the right for the rest of the year. And it's directly due to what you wrote about Keane/LD. Their off the ball movement and understanding of one another over the course of the last few weeks has been stellar - and what should be scary to the rest of the league is that it's getting BETTER. That's what I want to analyze, and if I didn't have to do this stupid work business I would do it. I'd rather focus on that today! Ironically, that'll also benefit the national team - he'll be more rested for those gigs too. And also help when we have 3 games/week. When he had to do that on the wing, you could tell he was gassed by the time he got to game 3. Now? Not the case. You know what's even scarier? Skydog's right about Keane's passing touch. How many times in the last few games have we seen Keane *almost* set Landon free? Happened against SJ at least twice, against the Union at least twice...etc. Landon has been setting Keane up, and Keane occassionally has been setting LD up. But there have been a few instances where Keane hasn't quite picked out the right pass. That starts to happen? Martin Rennie was right - our off-the-ball movement has the potential to frighten. Someone who didn't get enough credit for his great game this weekend was Sean Franklin - he was involved in several serious scoring attempts and had a great game defensively as well - Portland basically gave up on his side and came down the center or left. Plus he had a goal line clearance. I think it was you skydog that says he usually picks it up halfway through the season. Well, he's reverting to trend. Didn't notice the wall so I went back and watched the highlights. Wow. You are very very right. Adds to Saunders woes last night. He needs to shake it off.
