    Ok, I'm watching the re-airing of the game on Sunday, and I'm just in shock on how darn good the Revs offense are. Last year we had two guys, Ralston to Twellman. This year, its Cancela to Noonan, Cancela to Fabbro, Fabbro to Noonan, etc. Its just amazing how fast this trio clicked and how amazing they are on the field. World Class.

    Fabbro has been a pleasant surprise. I really didn't expect anything out of him. I guess it just goes to show what the right mix and players and consistant playing time will do for a person.

    The trio of Noonan, Cancela and Fabbro is effective because they are completely unselfish. If anything, they need to be encouraged to shoot more (although Noonan has gotten the message).

    I watched the replay (again) of last Sunday's goal, and it's hilarious watching Richie Williams go in on a sliding tackle of Fabbro as he lets the ball roll through his legs to Noonan. You can read the expression on Richie's face - "Oooooh shiiiiiiiiii ...."!

    MLS Class, which is pretty good.

    World Class?
    You've got to get out more and expand your horizons.

    The performance in Giants Stadium was much better and more entertaining than the one on Sunday.

    Having seen the Revs kick Chicago's butt by a combined score of 8-1 in two games, I'm less than impressed.

    i was referring to first half, and especially Noonan's goal. And I watch World Class soccer, I know how pretty the goals can get. The only way that goal would have been better if it was top 90.

    Noonan's strike was of high quality, but to call the Revs' attack World Class, is, to put it simply, a bit too much.

    Sure the attack trio of Noonan, Fabbro and Cancela, and probably throw in Ralston, are working wonders right now, but are they comparable to Raul, Ronaldo, Zidane, and Figo? Because thats a world class attack.

    The enthusiam is greatly appreciated by all, but lets keep it reasonable here.

    To be fair Real Madrid's attack is beyond world class. I'd say that ManU or AC Milan is world class, Madrid is in a class by itself.
