Chivas had, I think, two touches in our box the entire game. An old slow poacher is not what would concern me much. I'm sure Frank lost no sleep over him. Cramping at the end of the first half on the road with a lead? You're going to give a Columbian that much credit? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and rewatch the first half to see if the announcer just had goal-goggles on or not. Well, the points claim was an oversimplification. Just like in the Houston match I was quite satisfied with the extent to which the Quakes dominated this game. Only the final touch was off. Soccer has more harsh results than any other sport, due to the low scores. Your initial point was not that soccer has harsh results but that the teams were comparable I contend Chivas remains bad and will miss the playoffs by a good amount, while the Quakes will coast into the playoffs with or without the injured guys. You're beating up a straw man. Of course bunkering was a fine strategy for this outmanned road team (and the blocked shots show that it had an effect), but if you're giving up that many clear scoring chances you are being outplayed. Go watch the replays. Nobody gives up 15 corners to Lenhart and Wondo on purpose, or relies on diving saves from their keeper and scrums in front of goal to go their way. Their coach knows damn well they got a lucky result. If this was the only game of the year on TV, viewers would come away saying the home team was a solid playoff team and the road team was a bunch of scrubs with no recourse but to stand 11 men in front of the goal and hope every shot is missed. Well, I'm sure we can agree he's an interesting prospect and it will be fun watching him develop. I like that he uses both feet and appears to have decent height, speed and control.
