New York
Salzburg

Brasil (Campinas)

Looks like only five soccer teams, but they are into some other sports too.

What I read said he isn't likely to start, but could be on the bench. Not sure if there's been an update since then.

tremendously disappointing. We had them by the throat and didn't apply the killer blow. Unfortunately, that's what you get when you don't put teams away when you have the chance... and Cahill's a quality-enough player to make you pay when you don't.

Our attitude about the game frankly sucked second half. Got totally outworked by NY and it wouldn't have been injustice for them to have taken all the points, given how many times they hit the woodwork leading up to the goal... which I saw coming about 10 seconds before it happened. Anyone standing nearby heard me exclaim "oh shit" before Cahill even got the ball.

Championship teams close these games out. Our killer instinct is not yet at that level unfortunately, and now we've left the door open for... gasp... PDX of all teams to potentially steal the shield away... given how easy their schedule is compared to ours and they get us at home for a six-pointer either way. Granted, we can still handle business, but there's no room for dropping more points... especially if we don't get at least one down there.

Once again, we're looking at the same issue from the beginning of the season. Our chances were there, but our finishing isn't.

The midfield wasn't great, but we did move the ball into the final 3rd. The problem is what we did with it there. Nobody had a good game on that end of the field.

Yeah -- you could *see* something evolving, but the finishing was nada. Am enjoying players' confidence in holding the ball that extra couple of seconds before making an ill-timed pass just because a defender was there - Yedlin, for one, has gotten a lot better at this, IMO - but Oba wasn't his usual self. Was interesting to see Eddie make a couple of gestures w/ his head as if to say that it should've been used a bit (or someone else's should have).

Totally agree with Eric's post. It's easy to blame poor finishing, and it's true that if we had taken our chances in the first half, we would have won. Still, that would mask the fact that we were comprehensively outplayed for three-quarters of the game. We had that good spell at the end of the first half, but that was about it. The Sounders have been quick to blame the weather, but frankly, it was more that the New York players were just quicker to every loose ball. With Olave being missing, we should have been able to create a lot of chances, but we never got enough quality possession to put them under pressure.

That said, I'm not inclined to go overboard on criticism based on this game. We've shown grit and determination by the bucketload in the last couple of months. For whatever reason, it just wasn't quite there last night. Have to give New York some credit too, they really did play well. Probably the most impressive opponent we've seen at RBP this season IMO, and that was without several key players.

At the risk of repeating myself from last week, I'm not quite sold on our midfield at the moment. I know Sigi wants to find a way to get Neagle on the field, but I'm just not convinced about having him out wide. The good moments he had last night all seemed to be when he drifted into the middle. I feel like we lose a little balance with him out wide. Given the strength of the midfields that we will likely be playing in the playoffs, we are going to need to be very competitive in there like we were against RSL last year. I don't think we're in awful shape by any means, but still, with only 5 games left, we don't have a whole lot of time to fine-tune.
