RSL put its best available 11 on the field tonight. I don't buy all the observations in this thread that say the organization doesn't/didn't really care about this tournament. We put our best available players on the field and they got taken to the woodshed by a better 11. Espy has a knock. He was being treated on the North end in the second half when he was warming up. I think JK would have put him in had he been healthy. In reality, he wasn't available. Olave and Wingert are 2 stalwarts who had a very bad game. Olave's passing this season has not been good, and tonight just continued that trend...except that it was worse than normal. When Tanaka was pulled, our right side attacks disappeared. This game proves beyond a doubt that RSL doesn't have the quality depth we all thought it had. The organization has got to rid itself of PJ. I was disappointed that Bonfigli didn't show us more tonight. Steele is at his best coming off the bench late, with fresh legs against tired legs. He's not a starter. RSL had several chances to win this game. Although we had 7 shots on goal, most of them were pretty weak rollers right to the keeper. The really dangerous opportunities were ruined by shots that were not on frame. Even Borchers shot badly. The main point here is that we have no consistent finishers after our starting 11. Reynish seems to be going down the DJ Countess path. He appears to have lost a ton of confidence. Our fans were great! Why does RSL lay an egg so often on well-attended games. I feel bad for the first timers. They saw bad soccer and and probably left wondering what all the fuss is about. Finally, the Minnesota Stars need to be given the credit they deserve. I don't know if they would have won if RSL had been able to field Sabo,Espy, Javi, Will, KB5 and Rimando. But, it doesn't really matter. They came in, played hard and seemed to want it more. They earned the victory, as opposed to RSL losing the game. The better side won on this given night. Frankly, I think they may have goven the FO a much needed wake up call regarding RSL's depth. Given the strains of the upcoming CCL, it might be a blessing that we are out of the USOC this quickly. We do not have the depth to strongly compete concurrently in MLS, CCL and the USOC. Right now I'm thinking that Garth and Jason are going to have to decide which remaining tournament to focus on--- MLS or CCL. I don't think we can succeed in both, and we might even fail at both unless one is given a lesser importance. P.S.- Javi sat with his son a few rows below us throughout the second half. I'm pretty sure only a few of us recognized him.
