In Topic: Some people don't care about the DC rivalry

Today, 09:12 AM

I'm not quite sure I even understand the purpose of the comparison. Is there actually anyone who thinks Atlanta is a bigger rival to us than DC now? 


The DC home game last August was a very good atmosphere - and there were more people there than yesterday.

Watch the video. Kemar Lawrence is a beast. He is what we have been missing. Most underrated player in the league.


Ive watched this no less than 25 times tonight.

Agreed on Taxi, as well. This team has felt a lot different, in my view, since he returned. We have the Montreal stinker mixed in, but 3 impressive wins since his return - vs. Galaxy, @ Dallas, vs. Atlanta.

Is there a team weve been less successful against at RBA than Vancouver? 1-2-2 all time at RBA.

We showed heart and fight and pressing up until the red


5 - @NewYorkRedBulls are unbeaten in their last five regular season @MLS games where they received a red card (3W-2D). Defiant.

If memory serves, last June at RBA we were up 1-0 on Dallas, got an early red, then proceeded to win 3-0. Id imagine that was the most recent prior to tonight.

Big props to Armas for the Barlow substitution (and I was skeptical at the time). I believe his thought process was that Barlow has a little more speed up top, so considering the circumstances of the game, he wanted the ability to play some long balls over the top on the counter and hope he gets on the end of one. Worked out brilliantly.

That Taxi moment at the end was probably my favorite of the season. Great win with a lot of heart today. It hasnt been the smoothest start to the year, but they are alive, fighting, and right in the thick of the playoff hunt.
