    Their coach is just trying to play to the pride of his players. He is hoping that if he doesn't sound worried or critical of his team that his attitude will translate into the players form as well. I think in reallity he is seeing everything they have to play for kind of crumbling before his eyes and a positive attitude is all he has to cling too. He has to be aware of the fact that they couldn't pull out a win at their place, the injuries and suspensions, the fact that they are going to play a team that plays at a very high level in their own house. He just isn't going to say it.

    Their backs are against the wall, but it's too difficult to play at Rio Tinto. RSL is ready.

    While I agree that Monterrey had a better game their two goals were both very soft. The first goal would have been cleared 9/10 times by Beckerman and their second goal was a PK from a hand ball in the box. Meanwhile, both our goals came in the run of play and both showed the skill this team has. Johnson's service to Borchers was perfect and Alvarez tracked down a ball and made a perfect pass to Morales who juked 3 defenders to score the late equalizer.

    I don't think RSL fans should take his comments too personally though. He said pretty much the same thing after their game against Puebla. That game played out in a similar way with Monterrey having most of the possession, but unable to convert their scoring opportunities.
