    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.

    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.

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