Chivas is better than earlier in the year. We should be able to get a win, but a draw would work.

I'm sorry, I have to disagree. It is time to panic! RSL needs to kick it in gear fast. They need to play with a sense of urgency or miss out on the playoffs.

Until, RSL starts getting the ball in the net more often (not just all the close calls they've had lately) they are in trouble. Last night was a great example of this. Espindola and Saborio had good chances late in the game, even being down a man, and instead of looking for a good shot they take bad-angle shots. RSL forwards need to learn to turn their backs to the defenders and hold the ball until they get a good shot or pass or make a move then shoot. The midfielders need to learn to crack some outside shots also- there has been way too much waiting for the perfect shot from the forwards. Midfielders can score too- if they shoot (look how at Houston last week).
I really thought AlVarez had a great game, even though he got yanked early. He was hustling on offense and defense. He is the only RSL player who continually can beat a player one on one. He needs more playing time and others need to follow his example from last night.
