Well, that was a riproaring start to the MLS playofs last night, wasn’t it? New England, with some reason, went out just to bother and annoy Chicago and the Revs did exactly that. I watched the full 90 and couldn’t believe how little ambition New England showed. I guess Nicol is confident enough in his defense that he can lean on them like that. If United tried to lean on its defense like that, they’d lose 6-0.
One can only hope that Chicago comes out next week at home with all guns blazing. Because another 90 minutes of slop like yesterday will not do anyone any good – primarily because it might allow New England to win.
