He looks really slow in those 1 on 1 positions. If this is because of injury then Hahnemann (who is too good to be sat on a bench) should be given a change. As Eric said above players not performing should be replaced by players that will give 100% even if they don't have as much natural talent as the Big name lacklustre efforts.

I'd give Gspurning, Hurtado and Martins a rest!!

It's like we are too dumb to learn from our mistakes. I don't think I've ever seen four carbon copy conceded goals in a match before :shock:

Actually, Colorado at home 2-3 years ago played a high line and we beat them like a drum... all the goals were pretty much the same thing.

scum have a similar pace problem to present us so it will be interesting to see if we've learned anything and adjust the tactics accordingly.

Ah fair enough. That may have been just before my time following Sounders and the MLS.

I realise some may not want to relive it, but I thought I'd share my gallery off the match:

i don't doubt anyone's effort or heart down on that pitch.

what it seemed to me was that kind of thing where when you try harder you end up screwing it up...then you try even harder & screw it up more.
i hope there's some good relaxing, meditation & self reflection going on. clear the heads & be ready to play like a proper team on sunday
