Alright, I think it is safe to say that we are a little bit dissapointed in Spiteri...of course so's his mother. I was very encouraged by the play of several guys in the first (and a few in the second). Bolanos looks like he could be an amzing addition to the team with potential all-star abilities. His vision and apparent shooting strength looked very impressive. He did not appear fit, even in the first half, and sometimes slowed forward movement. His defense was poor (ok, he was playing up front) at times, but he did pick it up later in the first half and the second as well. This guy should be fun to watch next season. Futagaki has got heart...and some skill to boot. He gave it his all and left a lot on the field. He didn't impress me with overall skill, but he looks to have potential and could make an impact in the next season or two if he sticks around and gets some game time. Jaqua looked pretty decent. Would have been nice to see him score, but overall an ok performance. Not Curtin's best game, but not his worst. The defense seemed to kind of give up when the Crew tied it up at 2. They just really seemed to get lazy and not care as much. Curtin had fire and was not happy with some of the resulting goals, but he played a part in at least 1 that I can remember. Brown and Gray looked off. Neither one had a stellar performance and I just wonder if there was a lack of leadership in the back without Thorton and Boca in the lineup. Marsh wasn't half bad. Gave his usual hard effort and performed alright. Pause, didn't see or hear much from him. Williams showed flashes of brilliance and played relatively well. He held the ball a few seconds too long on several occasions, but his vision is quite impressive. I hope to see him on the team next season, but his job is far from secure (i.e we find a real sharp SI who would be able to contribute more). Dipsy had a good game, really kind of dissapeared in the second half, but once the downward spiral started there weren't a great deal of offensive chances. Capano has potential, but this is based on what I have seen in the past, because he really had little impact in this game. Razov came in around the 75th minute, got a header on goal and made a few runs...wish he could have gotten that goal, but there are better things in one's career than the 'golden boot...' like an MLS Cup and the Treble. Spiteri: words escape.
