Looking Back and Forward

Pressed for time today, but wanted to comment on last night's Gold Cup match. There were a few moments of brilliance from the US in their 1-0 win over the Guats, some beautiful passing combos between Bornstein, Bradley, Feilhaber, Donovan, Twellman, and Dempsey. However, the Nats had a lot of trouble with smart decisions around the goal. The team will have an easy time with T&T, but truly have to improve their finishing if they want to defend their title.

TFC did a good job frustrating New York in the Red Bulls' 2-1 win on Wednesday, and New York will have to pick up its game if it wants to win at DC on Sunday. United is resurgent, and only a composed Clint Mathis and a valiant effort from the hurting back line will deliver a positive result.

I'd gloat more, if it weren't for the fact that six points say I still need to wear a RBNY jersey come the end of the season... C'mon DC!

Certainly shaping up to be an interesting season. You guys (clearly) looked great. We need to get our backline healthy in a big way.
