Amazingly fast 20 year old winger.
Thanks for the shout out. I will keep an eye on this kid. Despite not qualifying for the Olympics, IMHO 2012 has been a stella year for the USNMT. I seen the Yanks beat both Italy & Mexico on their home turf, both are matches I never could have believed would happen. Now going to Russia?? Man if the Yanks win that match....I will be very happy Almost Ray Hudson Happy Or even better
:P

I just don't know... I'm still doing a slow burn about Sigi's lineup and choice of play from the first leg. I just keep thinking of Henry Winkler and Jerry Reed from the Waterboy. Until Sigi stops being afraid of Arena, we're going to lose more than we'll win against LA.

Today all the talk up here is getting rid of montero....... mainly because a 5-8 player couldn't beat four marking backs, two of which I think are 6'2" on high crosses..... I mean it's great Seattle has such a fan base, but I am left shaking my head at some of those "fans" leap off and on the bandwagon and their rants.

While I hope for a 4-nil result, the possibility is wafer slim thin.

I just want Sigi to tell the fans "sorry" and start working on next season. Quit blaming the players you put out there who really shouldn't have been.

Montero has his moments of brilliance but he's not consistent and doesn't usually score clutch goals.

Really?.... nothing to be said from the Sounders faithful?

Also, congrats to Austin Berry for winning Rookie of the Year.

It's early yet. But what last night proves is had Sigi not played the group in the first game and not played to lose by much or tie, a different outcome was possible. Still mad at that brain fart. Not mad enough to fire him, but the same guys who started last night for Seattle were all available for down in LA. That group could have gone at least 60 minutes and maybe there's a different outcome. Chosing not to attack in LA was the deciding factor.

Right now, I just hope they don't tear apart the team in a kneejerk fashion. Montero with better service is Wondo. Montero had actually more points (goals and assists) than Eddie Johnson this past season and much like the two barbers with one having a great haircut and the other not, Montero is a far better passer than Johnson.

Congrats on the series win. What this series proved is Arena is a better coach than Sigi. But you already knew that. Unfortunately, so did I. We almost had the waterboy ending.....

Seattle could have definitely used that group in the first leg. They put up a helluva fight.

But look, Sigi is no pushover. He knows how to run a match but will often take chances that don't always work. Give him a couple more years and he'll probably be on par with Bruce Almighty.
