Well... wasn't the most artistic thing in the world, but we got the result.

However, we're starting to fall into the trap of conceding first at home (and soft goals at that) and having to play catch up. This won't work against teams that can kill off a game better than the rapids or chivas. Lot of work to be done in the back to clean things up.

Sooner we get Gspurning or Hahnemann back the better. Weber played better, but still looks lost on crosses... flapped at a couple more yesterday.

Got to win the next two and then things get interesting, if not more difficult.

It's nice to have those weeks when you at least make a move upwards in the standings with a victory - unfortunately, we won't have that for at least the next two matches, which is stressful (unless the Rapids get nada at which time SSFC is tied, I believe?). The games at hand seem attractive to keep in the back of your head when looking at the table, but the games are slowly ticking their way off the schedule, too.

Hoping that the health train stays in our station for a little while, as the pileup of nagging injuries is mega stressful to watch.

Great to see Ianni back. He is a beast in the air. He made some small mistakes but he's getting the rust off. Ozzie owned the midfield last night when it came to tackles.

I'm split when it comes to Rosales. He's not the player he used to be, but he hustles so hard. I love the fight in him but would love to see that creativity again. Worthy captain choice IMO
