Who cares? USOC semis!

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I'm interested to see how this goes. 

Not expecting much considering away game, short rest after intense game and cross country travel but hoping for a 70-75% LAFC possession that gets savagely countered by Sserewanda, Harper, Omir and Klimala.

No Edelman with the U20s. Fuck it give Sserwadda another run out at CM. Klimala and Omir should be fresh. Have no interest in seeing Pendant play. Would rather emergency loan up Castillo instead.

i would suggest mini nealis but he looked beat at the end of last game. Castillo never impressed me with rb2. i would be ok with giving Sserwadda another look or see if wiki is ready.

How is Luq, after being mugged by the Smurfs?
Should he even make the long round-trip?
Needed more against ATL at home next Thurs.

I am glad that the ref started to hand out yellow cards on fouls committed to luq. I would argue that action change the game.

For this game, I would rest him. No reason to push it. The squad I originally posted is good enough to get a win.

They are playing away, against a team that's on the other side of the country, that didn't have a midweek game, and that is leading the Shield race...  For these reasons, even if every one is healthy, getting a result this match is going to be tough.  So I agree in not pushing anyone that is borderline or that could use a rest. And who knows, maybe someone will step and surprise us.

For real. I will be ecstatic if they even manage a draw in this one.

I think we match up well against LA. They might be the better team but our style will be a factor.

We just need to have the energy to press. The only guy that should be req to start is Long. He is the glue that keeps that backline together.

I'd be fine for Luq not to start or even make the trip.  Give it to Omir and Sswerwadda

Cross country game after a midweek Derby. Might have to give some guys a rest. Fuck it, play Sswerwadda in this game, why not.

Curious if Gruber will shift the lineup at all cause this is a cross country road trip Sunday game and then short turnaround against ATL at home Thursday?
