2-0 to the G's if Beckham plays.
No, 2-2, and extra time, maybe penalties. If we're lucky.
No disgrace to lose to Pachuca - someone has to be the best team in North America, and right now that's them. We handled them once, and I love Harden and Randolph. But two rookies can't shut out Pachuca, not even with Joe Cannon channeling Neo. And because we beat them once, we won't be able to take them by surprise.
Maybe by the 29th, Beckham will be able to bank shots off of Pavon and Buddle. Beckham and Donovan seem to be on the same page, which is a big part of the reason I'm giving us a chance. Outside of DB, LD, and Cannon, they just have us flat-out beat at every other position.
I suppose it's really up to AX. Xavier was nails in the first game against them, but he's going to have to be completely bugfuck in the final.
