Got it done but should do so over a weakened Orlando. Myul good positions need better finishing . Davis what a shot. Good to see Collin and Lade back. Good crowd maybe 20k actually in seats. Great ending for the fireworks. Glad to see every seat filled for Kaka - you know how having a World Cup winner and one of best players in a generation daws them in...................

3 points = 3 points moving on. 

 

Side note: I think chances any of the four mid-season signings see even 1 combined minute this season is about 50%.

God Aaron Long running down Rivas and shutting him down then holding his arms up Gladiator style was so awesome.

I mean it's not like we had the biggest crowd of the season despite the threat of thunderstorms or anything.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

The Davis goal reminded me almost frame for frame of the Jermaine Jones goal v Portugal. 

 

- On second watch, Jone's was a bit better from further out. Still a sweet strike.

Would've been sweet if that BWP bike went in. I know retired numbers aren't really a thing in soccer, but I'd make an exception for him in a heart beat.

2nd soft goal let in by Robles in two weeks. Straight at him like Villa's last week. 

 

It was painful watching Muyl miss 2 clear cut chances in 5-10 minutes. Lucky he was able to come up with an assist shortly after the second miss. Guessing he would've been benched shortly thereafter otherwise.

 

Sean's goal was textbook. Looking forward to seeing in on the highlights video.

 

Good to see Collin on the field. Guess that means he starts on Tuesday?

Has there ever been anything as ridiculous in an MLS match as the Kaka sending off? I've been following MLS literally since the day it started and I've seen bizarre stuff but I can't think of anything that tops this.

Kaka's decision to grab Collin was just dumb. If you go by the letter of the law its still a red card. You think someone who has been playing as long as him would know that. Its not a joke.

Agreed. Remember when Nick Sakiewicz said we would hold #18 for Tim Howard? Then a few months later Zach Wells was wearing it.

It even looked like Colin tried to bail him out after the fact and the referee wasn't having it.

This.  I have no problem at all with that card.  Even Long who was right there had a problem with what Kaka did, until he seen Collin's reaction.  That shouldn't be up to the ref to determine who are friends and who aren't. THat sets a dangerous precedent because all you are doing is involving more judgement by officials and the goal should be to remove judgement by officials. 

 

There were a good number of performances.  I still believe that Felipe is doing a hell of a job in this formation.  With his passing and his positioning, it's really fantastic.

 

Murillo is odd.  I still don't like his positioning at all when he's one of the 3 in the back, but he's got great recovery speed, he's GREAT in the air which is nice to have someone extra offensively.

 

Very nice to have Davis starting because he fits the position perfectly.


Sacha has nothing left athletically but he's still great with his passing and movement within the field.  

 

Good to see Collin back on.  Need to get him involved and rolling.

Did #7 put his hands on Sacha's throat, or am I taking crazy pills?

Given how poor Orlando has been with Kaka in the lineup this season, I wonder if they even appeal the card.
