With all due respect to the great BWP, Diego Rossi did 75%+ of the work. He stole the ball, he advanced the ball, he crossed the ball, and set up BWP. BWP did an excellent finish, but the fact is that we don't have anyone who can do what Diego Rossi did on that play.

Rossi is amazing, and admittedly I thought BWP was damaged goods after last season, but he proved me and others wrong, since his level of play dramatically improved from last year. It's not just Rossi. BWP scored another goal in that game, which was disallowed by VAR review because another player was offside, not him. Looks like BWP was indeed just injured last year and not quite done yet. Gotta give credit when credit is due and admit when I was wrong. LAFC probably got him on the cheap too just as an insurance back-up. I don't know how long he can keep this up as he is up there in age, but at least as of now, the way he plays is one of the main things missing from Metro.

Agreed, but I don't think we necessarily have anyone doing the remaining 25% either.
