    Hahahaha ... Each free kick we take is worse than the one before. I seem to remember Najar hits a good dead ball.

    Is it that hot in SJ? I see all the ultras with naked chest, and everybody else with a winter jacket...

    On the other hand, I forgot that they are "the only group in MLS with a real ultras mentality" - accordingly to them obviously (who else otherwise?)

    SJ Ultras is best quality supporter group in the West. Quality not quantity. Portland and Seattle can suck it!

    I hate to say that, but I am not sure TFC can lose eight in a row...

    Have you watched them play? They've been profoundly unlucky. The way they lost at RSL was absurd. We're gonna have a fight on our hands there.

    I never spoke about quantity. I am thinking however that they should let others judge over them

    All in all I'm not too down on the result. We punched in 3 pretty goals on the road on the best in the West. We created many chances and could of easily ended up with 5 goals too. I get what Olsen was thinking. You're short on defense but you're offense is clicking, so you try to push forward and attack. Bunkering would of meant losing 3-0 instead. He couldn't of expected giving up 5.

    Either way I'm entertained. I love where this team is going.

    Are you still going to be OK with tonight if we lose Saturday because of the decisions we made tonight?

    K signing off. I need time to understand why DC insists on making Bruin and Lenhart look like the 2 best players in the league.

    I agree, not that bitter about this loss.

    And I'm 3-0-0 6:1 in Toronto so obviously we can't lose :D

    I don't think you lose Saturday because of what we did tonight. Najar and Salihi just showed up so they can slide into starting lineup naturally and replace whomever our 2 most tired attackers are. De Ro is a bit of a concern because Bosko is the only natural sub there and he may be rusty, but what the hell ... if there's a defense in MLS that can make life a little easier for Bosko, it's TFC.

    And our back 5 would of been the same for both games anyways as short handed as we are. If anything Korb may have earned the start over Saragosa, moving Kitchen back to midfield.


    I'm not worried about the TFC game per say. What I am worried about is the long term implications of missing 3 of our 4 center backs, a problem that at this point won't be fixed by rotation.
