a lot of MLS teams will struggle against us and we are at minimum a top four team ..


We will see. There are no moral victories.

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

A couple of thoughts:

 

- Maybe we all underestimated the quality in Chivas because Marsch gameplanned them so well?  

The Sounders, who hadn't scored a goal in league play until the passed weekend, managed a 1-0 victory over Chivas at home.  Also, Chivas played differently last night.  At RBA they didn't need the away goal, because we didn't get one in the first game.  Last night they played more aggressively because of the importance of the away goal.  Once Chivas was content to sit and defend against us, we needed something more than tactics, we needed a special player.  And, like March has always done, he leaves his Argie DP attacker on the bench until way too late.

I suspect Almeida is a very good coach.

Liga MX title in addition to 2 CopaMX titles for Almeyda as HC of Chivas..

One lesson that we all need to learn from this: if you piss your socks and get intimidated by the big bad Mexican teams you will fail, if you view them as just another team you have to face and don't get intimidated they are absolutely beatable. If MLS teams adopt that mindset than MLS teams will start winning this thing regularly.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!
