    kamara hasn't looked that bad on the left, has he? the few times they've changed it up for 5 minutes at a time or however long. is there a reason not to pull convey at the 60' or 80' or whenever, move kei to the left, and sub on a right-sided forward instead of peterson?

    He doesn't look bad there for short periods of time, but I wonder how he'd look there for an extended period of time.

    hopefully better than he would as a starting right back.

    hm...

    Jacob Peterson seems to be this season's Chris Brown or Ryan Pore. They guy must look awesome in practice because he's always one of the first choices off the sub's bench despite rarely adding anything to the game. (Unless you count giving up goals to the other team.) Heck, at least Chris Brown scored goals occasionally.

    Next game against San Jose worries me.

    That will help, but my nightmare scenario is a Khari Stephenson hat trick for the ultimate humiliation.

    I would agree except I don't know who would slip into the left wing for Convey. I think it has more to do with Convey needing a sub rather than Peterson being our first choice.

    I think we definitely missed Roger's tenacity.....it's going to suck if he goes to the Olympics. Our roster depth takes a major step down in the midfield, and we are going to see how we do Zusi-less this weekend. It's good that Joseph got some time in this game, because I would think he would step into Zusi's spot (assuming he makes the final roster). Hopefully he can get at least 70 minutes in.

    And I agree about Peterson.....what does Vermes see in him? He takes up space on the field and not much more. I would have much rather seen CJ go in for Convey.

    It's no guarantee Zusi will be gone, 4 players from that priliminary roster will be cut Friday

    ;)

    I am being totally selfish and hope he doesn't make the cut......we need a win this weekend, and being Zusi-less would not be good.

    Sorry, missed that first read through, just saw your comment about a Zusi-less weekend.

    I can't comment all that much on the game. Even though I "watched" it, it was after 6 hours of crawl for cancer, so Im pretty fuzzy on, well, all of it.

    Just wanted to say I was happy that Teal found the net. Will be interesting to see what PV does now with him and CJ. I'm still with most on wanting to get them both on the field together again.

    What's unfortunate is PV has to kep choosing the hotter hand over the luke-warm hand so to speak. Either Bunbury or Sapong needs to develop as a winger in this system. If this keeps going, one will develop at the expense of the other or neither will develop.

    Unfortunately, what we've learned in this last group of games is we can't handle the cliche of a 'Target on your back". From top to bottom, this team didn't handle it well at all.

    It's cool, I guess. They never really had to play from this position (unless you're counting the Houston playoff game, which I'm not). I just hope they stop pissing away points before their back is truly against a wall or do something extremely dumb like getting bounced from USOC early.

    We'll see.
