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.
