No doubt RSL is not playing well. Midfield especially is not connecting passes
very well. And there doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency in their
play. Espindola has been playing his butt off. Lastly,
I've been saying it all season long. The MLS is a bush league when it
comes to consistency in officiating. They need to change their training because
frankly, they stink. After watching EURO 2012 it became try apparent just how
bad the MLS refs are.
MLS needs improvement with officiating. These people are garbage.
A few thoughts on the game:#1 - Replay shows Saborio was level when
Wingert's cross was played to him. His goal should have stood. #2 - Mansally looked good at left back. He could be the attacking-minded
outside back that RSL needs. I hope his shoulder injury doesn't keep him
from playing.#3 - RSL looked off during the final 30 minutes. They
were struggling to play the ball out of the back and started relying too heavily
on playing balls over the top. Hopefully they can get out of their recent funk
and get back to their winning ways. They are 3 points out of first place, but
San Jose has a game in hand so it could be 6 points and Vancouver is only 4
points back with 2 games in hand.
Mansally looked good, Watson-Siriboe did fine, he made a couple mistakes, but
luckily wasn't punished for it. It's better to win at home, but points
are nice right now.
