  1. The Union should really watch the Spurs-City game to see how to execute an effective counterattack.

  2. i guess i shouldn’t have included a link this morning as “Your comment is awaiting moderation” has been sitting.
    Watched the Timbers–Sounders game last night. leaps and bounds more entertaining that what we typically see week in and week out. incredible quality on the goals. Atmosphere was electric. Portland had about 15 mins of surge to equalize but it lasted only 3 mins and Seattle just crushed them till the final whistle.

      excellent commentary here…the level of play in that game was mesmerizing. From style, to technical skill to the adeptness of creativity with indivdiual players.
      I have surrendered to the playing style in Philadelphia. It is challenging sometimes when you have those types of outputs as comparison.
