3-man backline against Real Madrid??? Janicki & Burch as part of that backline ... need I say more? Janicki please dribble your way out of defense as you did against Firpo.

Janicki starting = lots of goals

Pretty sure they would have gone 4-4-2 if they still had Namoff, they'd just push the line over.

Without Namoff or Quaranta, we could be really screwed.

I hope (with my homer hat on) that DCU shows well and gives RM a real game. (Sorry for the visual pun.)

I fear that we'll suffer the same fate as Seattle and TFC....which goes to show that MLS as a whole has a ways to go.

Watching the crisp player and ball movement by both Spanish clubs is a joy.

Reference to Pirlo. None to Gattuso. Don't drink yet.

Great save Wicks. That live thing Tenorio set up on the next thread is pretty neat.

$350 million for players and they can't afford to put the names on the backs of the jerseys.

Good save by Wicks.

Looks like Madrid needs to spend another $300 million. 0-0 at half.
