Wells--5.5 Reis MIGHT have stopped that rather lucky shot to the far post. I'm finding it hard to have confidence in Wells overall. Leitch--6 Solid on D, helped on offence. Didn't play as many horrible long balls as usual. Parke--5 Just put it out of play, Parke! Again, already! Agoos--6 Solid. Putting in Mendes at the 72' and putting Agoos out wide really helped shore up central defence at the time Agoos's legs are growing tired. Regan--6.5 A good game showing hustle for all 90' and doing a lot of organizing on the D. Stepped up into a D-mid role well. Bradley--5.5 OK. Lisi--5.5 Decent performance. Neither Lisi nor Bradley showed why they NEED to be on the field instead of a possibly soon to be acquired Barret, or even a Regan to D-mid permanently move. I predict that Pine is in the future for one of these two in the near future. Guevara--8 The vast majority of Metros chances came as a result of his passing. Dribbles a bit too long every now and then, but he shows excellent ballskills. Gaven--7 Scores a great goal, and got in a few dangerous situations, but didn't make his presence consistently felt in the attacking third or even on the right hand side. Razov--7 Draws the PK, but that was a bit lucky--he didn't exactly get clobbered or tripped. Put a great freekick on the goalpost. Skied a few shots too, though. SGR--6.5 All over the field, and he would have gotten a 9 if he had put one in the back of the net. He might not have Ibrahim's speed, but he's got twice the vision and three times the touch. Definitely deserves to keep his boots on the pitch. Magee (65' for Bradley)--4.5 Did you see that horrible headed back pass? Maybe he contributed in helping Metros put in the go-ahead, but I didn't see it. Ibrahim (71' for SGR)--6 Played fine, and the 20' will give him some confidence after the operation. Metros looked more dangerous before the change than after, so SGR shows he continues to deserve his place in the starting 11. Mendes (72' for Lisi)--6 Kept fresh legs in the back to counter Galaxy's fresh legs. Showed he could go in and help close a game down. Coach Bradley--7 He must have read all our irate posts on substitutions, because he used all 3! I like Magee for Bradley (when Metros needed the go-ahead) and Mendes for Lisi (when Metros needed to wrap up the game). But why Ibrahim for SGR when we're up a goal and SGR's playing well, plus giving SGR a bit more time to connect and put one in the back of the net will keep his confidence high. Why not Mendes in for SGR first, and then if LA somehow ties the game, we can go back to 2 forwards up top with a Ibrahim for Lisi substitution. Still, game won. 'Nuff said. Shep Messing-- 6.5 Does a good job getting excited, and he likes the SGR - Razov combo ( to his credit), but I think he was downplaying the importance of Metros dominance of the possession at the close of the first half. Keeping possession is what the Metrostars have been poor at when ahead, so it was nice to see that they can actually do it!
