    Man, what crap.

    oh well. hopefully we can pull something out of our asses on sunday.

    without amado.

    I guess that means we kind of HAVE to leave Richie in.

    I think he forgot he wasnt on DC United anymore tonight. he kept on passing it off to them.

    Galvan in the starting lineup? or Gaven?

    Gaven is faster, and maybe he'll scare DC.

    You had to be there to appreciate the effulgiance of last night's performance. Be grateful you couldn't smell it over tv.

    I didn't realize these guys just met 20 minutes before the game, I thought they'd been together all season. Not a bad get together of modestly talented duffers, but no match for a real team, and so they lost.

    Or should I say when you play like pigs, expect to be burned like bacon?

    DiGi is all heart, but his skills are limited. I'm trying to be kind. Yes, he puts in a good cross. But that's all he can do, and the whole league knows it. If he receives the ball he will either:

    1. turn it over to the other team

    2. bounce it back to his team mate like a proper wall.

    3. cross it.

    Usually 1 and 2 happen simply because he can't trap the ball, and any pass to him bounces 5 yards away.

    Amado does not believe in fast breaks. It's against his religion. Everything must be earned the hard way --- by dribbling into traffic, passing square or passing back.

    Clint is pissed off because nobody can read his mind. His body language seems to say, "I don't wanna be here," but who knows what evil lurks in the heart of man?

    The Shadow knows.

    Joe Addo caught a bad break that killed us. It was that kind of night, because he had been doing as good a job as could be expected up till then.

    It was that kind of night. Even Chicago has had a couple of those, just not at home.

    What is it about this team that turns players, coaches, and management into bums at the end of the season? It has happened a lot over the past 8, this one included. It isn't over yet, but we just aren't playing the way a team challenging for championships should.

    Actually, only San Jose is doing that. And lately, DC. Is that what parity looks like? We could beat them in the next two, and turn things upside down again, but I begin to detect the oder of failure rising from the Swamp -- between the lines!

    If Metro wanted to make a statement about playing on a gridiron in front of a paltry crowd, the statement was made.

    And maybe we should all stay home, if that's the best we can do for what's left of the season.

    you know, after watching this game which didn't help my insomnia, I noticed a few things:

    1. what's wrong with one-touch passes, why do the guys have to have at least 4 touches before the ball is moved.

    2. now we know why addo doesn't play.

    3. DiGi-I still don't see the skill that got him a shot in Germany, 2nd Generation Hedjuk????

    I never thought I'd say this about a Bob Bradley coached team, but you guys were out matched last night. Why Pope wasn't marking Petke on set pieces, I'll never know. He's the only player on our team who makes the minimum height for the rides at Six Flags.

    Personally, I hope you guys keep playing like this :)
