LA 3 - Metros 0 Hat Trick by Ruiz, Diallo leaves game on stretcher with ankle injury, and Ziadie gets a red card in the second half. I just got back from the game, and it was absolutely terrible. I missed the first goal due to traffic in the Rose Bowl area, but I'm kind of glad I did. We came out in a 4-3-3 formation. As usual, the marking wasn't tight enough in the back, and Ruiz repeatedly burned Petke. Heck even Cobi looked good out there. Before Diallo got hurt, the forwards kept running into each other's space. At one point Clint and Big Mama got in each others face arguing on the field. Having 3 forwards was particularly useless considering there was ZERO service from midfield. Williams was the only remotely offensive minded midfielded. In typical MLS and Metros fashion, the team lost its cool, Cobi had a spat with Ziadie, and saw red. Petke was lucky to avoid red too, he totally flipped at the ref and 4th official. This game was a fair indicator that OZ has lost control/respect of his squad. The team needs a change in leadership. It might be too late for this year. But not only was there sloppy play, but also a lack of discipline and urgency. One more observation: I've only made it to one Metros game at the Swamp this year, so this may have been going on all season, but I noticed that all the bench players didn't go into the locker room at halftime at all. They weren't warming up either, they were just hanging out. The whole Galaxy team went inside. I'm wondering if this is another sign of problems on the team. That's my report being one of the few Metrofans at the Rose Bowl. It was too bad that I had literally nothing to cheer for.
