Ignore the previous post. Let's use this new one once the DCU-HOU match begins.

DCU's starting lineup is the same as the America game: Perkins, Gros, McTavish, Boswell, Burch, Olsen, Carroll, Gomez, Fred, Dyachenko, Emilio. Subs: Nolly, Mediate, J. Carroll, Namoff, Simms, Kpene, Moreno.

Goff,

Forgive me if you have already answered this, but what is your opinion of the Superliga Tournament? Good? Bad? Indifferent? Are you hoping that DCU advances?

I myself have loved the tournament so far and hope that DCU advances!

Good tournament with a lot of potential. Here's hoping it continues to grow in future years.

Goff,

You said that the winning team, if MLS, only gets $150,000 to divide among the players. What happens to the other $850,000? It goes to the winning club? Or to MLS (if a MLS team wins)?

Posted by: Sean | August 1, 2007 8:00 PM | Report abuse

I am saying (optimistically) 2-1 DC Emilio and then Moreno late

Nice first cross. Burch is a keeper.

Posted by: DC | August 1, 2007 8:15 PM | Report abuse

Yes, players on the championship team will split $150,000. The rest goes to the team/investors.

Here's the breakdown:

50K for making the semis
Another 50K for making the final
Another 50K for winning it all
150K total

Posted by: Goff | August 1, 2007 8:16 PM | Report abuse

Burch thumps a sweet long ball, doesn't he? When's the last time you saw that from a DCU outside back?

Posted by: Goff | August 1, 2007 8:18 PM | Report abuse

And then how will the players decide who gets the 150K? Split 18 ways? Seems unfair for Gomez to get the same as Burch considering the difference in salary.

And considering Emilio has missed more open shots in this tourney he should, perhaps, pay the team out of pocket.

Posted by: delantero | August 1, 2007 8:19 PM | Report abuse

Burch is putting in nice balls. Otherwise, play looks pretty sloppy. HOU's big free kick outside the PA went wild.

The players will come up with their own formula to split the winnings. I am sure it will be weighted to benefit players who play the most minutes.

It is unfair to criticize DCU for playing long ball at Estadio Robertson. The field is narrow and Houston is very tough to beat there.

Basically, they try to nick a goal and then choke the game off from there, which they can do on the narrow field.

Had one really good opp and blew it. Not complaining. We maintained a good deal of possession. However, the guys are thinking they are playing America and have much time on the ball.

It will be interesting to track Holden. I guess he could play for either USA or Scotland internationally (has played for USA in youth internationals).

I think he would be a very smart player to go after for a European club, he wouldn't be too expensive and could yield big results.

However it works out, the kid is going places and I'd want him on my team.

I did not see Dyachenko hurt. Assuming I am correct, this is the second time Soehn has pulled Dyachenko in the first half because (presumably) he did not think he was playing well. I didn't see much of him, but he didn't seem poor to me, and did score in the last game. How do you bench the guy before the half break? That is a second slap in the face, and I would not be pleased if I was Rod.

Houston's edging it. We are not really using the wings at all. If Olsen and Fred aren't going to take some initiative, I'd at least like to see Gros or Burch make an overlapping run AND get the ball as a result. So far, I believe we had one Gros overlap, but the ball was pumped in early and nothing came of it. The field is thin as it is; lwe're not even using what little width it affords.

At least I know now I'm watching the same game as at least one other person.

I think Gros might be under mandate to hang back. DeRo, Ching, Jaqua (shudder) have all been in randy form lately.

Fred keeps drifting to the middle.

I agree with Goff. DCU was outplayed tonight, but each team created one clear scoring chance. The winning side put away its chance.

If you said going in that DCU would get a tie from this game, that would have been a great result. It is clear that that DCU clearly misses Jaime. It is no accident that the team looked much more dangerous once he came on. Hopefully he is on the way to a full recovery.

And, hopefully, America pulls at least a point so DCU can advance.

Does anyone recall the details of how Houston/San Jose got Ching?

My hazy recollection is that, back in the Hudson Era, we traded some kind of draft choice (gawd knows what kind) to San Jose for some scrawny, stringy haired midfielder who hung around for a season or two and never did anything. San Jose picked up Ching with the choice -- from where I don't know. But I am quite sure that we traded a choice to San Jose that they used to get Ching and we got nothing of value.

Every time I see Ching play, and get mad at Hudson and his wonderful personnel choices all over again.

The only even remotely attacking player we had on the bench when Simms came on was Mediate. He can only play wide, and I don't think he would have been an upgrade on anyone we had out there at the time. Everyone that has called for another forward to be sent on should go outside and do push-ups until they become literate.

DC was poor tonight. Houston was poor tonight. Sadly, Houston was slightly less poor. This was a bad game from both sides. They finished their one great chance, while Eddie Robinson blocked both of ours.

Also, can we clone Moreno? It's clear that we are much, much better with him than without him. The 2 minutes between his entry into the game and when Robinson floored him (and inexplicably got off with no card, no foul, or even a talking to) were our best 2 minutes. Where goes Moreno, goes DC United.

I don't grade coaches on what they do when they are winning matches, I grade them when they are losing matches and the team has to make adjustments. The best coaches (Wenger, SAF, Mourinho, Rijkaard, Capello) can make good tactical adjustments when needed. In my opinion it took Soehn 20 minutes to switch from a 442 to the 352 that he wanted on the field. He didn't look confident o sure of what he wanted to do. Soehn may be a good coach, but not a championship coach. I may be wrong it is just my opinion.

I'm not surprised at the result, but its not like DC didn't have their chances to win or tie this match.

Soehn's faith in Gros is really hurting the team. Gros's decisions and passing out of the back are horrible. Granted he is playing out of position, but his lack of technical ability makes him look out of position no matter where he plays.

Subbing Burch off was a mistake; he was the only player consistently stretching Houston's defense with his long passes that actually found DC's forwards.

Looking good thanks to America.
