My Lord, we need to work on finishing. It could have been an even score line if we could finish.

Oba would have been the game changer in this match. Reasons:

1. He can finish
2. He is one of the only players who can detect Dempsey's quick and tricky passes in the box
3. That means Neagle would have been LM, which would be a helpful improvement in pressure and play creation
4. He can finish

Such a pretty cross in for Rosales to botch it. You could tell he was mad at himself...

this game could have been 8-5 or so with better finishing on both sides.

way too many gaps in our defending, way too little ball pressure. Houston basically did whatever they wanted that first half. Absolutely terrible.
