Little known fact about the possession stat in soccer - it's nothing more than a percent of total passes, so the two stats you're talking about are identical
 
Fans understandable assume its a measure of time of possession, and to be honest I don't know why stat companies don't do it that way. I know from working briefly for Opta that they mark when possession changes, it wouldn't be hard to make some calculations based on time of possession.

Thanks never knew that
Time makes more sense

We cant judge Columbus off of playing Cincinnati.

We know that no team likes the press. If our finishing gets more clinical this should be a good result.

Id like to see White and Parker return to starting 11.

Id also like to see Sean Davis contribute something as well.

Contribute like Parker who had 4 mistakes in 10 minutes off the bench?
White for sure

Too soon to judge his offensive contributions. Fitness levels are low and the Florida heat is brutal. Running the length of the field on counters to overlap in the final third wasn't going to be a priority. Especially after the early lead. 

Exactly
First game with team after long layoff and in heat humidity combo he has never played in
Looks fine
