Re: Caleb.The positioning of attacking players doesn't related
to whether something is a restart or a setpiece. The second goal was off a
throw-in, something RSL has really struggled with, and I think a throw-in counts
as a set piece.
I don't San Jose's second goal was a set-piece goal. San Jose had
only two attacking players (Gordon and Wondo) in attacking position within
approximately 10 yards of the goal. I don't think that's enough to
constitute a set piece.
I think Nick Rimando has been a real solid goalkeeper for many years. That said,
it seems to me since the long layoff and Nick's return from other duties
have corresponded in some rusty play. Much of that is tough luck and blown
opportunities but I really feel the overall defense and goal tending are the
achilles heel right now.
