Johnson has been hot lately and looks good in the 4-2-3-1 Dallas has been using. He created Dallas' first goal then buried the second, and I believe the change in scenery can only be good for young Johnson. Donovan's hat trick was nice, even making the Saturday night SportsCenter "Top 10" - tough to do on a college football Saturday. Donovan's control and teamwork at full speed in very, very tight space was eye-opening. Sometimes this kid can still surprise you. Speaking of surprises, the biggest surprise of the year in MLS is hands-down Nat Borchers. Borchers has shut down everything and everybody lately, and if Mooch isn't thinking about giving Nat a long hard look, he's making a mistake. A big one. Only other things of note are that Countess finally gets a break after getting shelled the entire year, Buddle finally doesn't get a point against Bunker Bob and the Metros, and Capano sees garbage minutes in Chicago. My all-U23 team still looks a lot like this: Buddle-Johnson Beasley-Beckerman-Martino-Donovan Convey-Gray-Borchers-Onyewu Countess Except Clark may have been helped not by his efforts, but by the poor decision of Kyle Beckerman this week against New England. Beckerman has to learn how to physically play the position without accumulating cards.
