Well… whoever it was that was asking about Clegg and whether he was the real deal, and something about half-assed observations and whatnot, I think we got our answer 😂 Yikes. Poor Mabiala. The only CB with a clue, plus dealing with a midfield that was completely unaware they were supposed to track back if RSL is sending their whole goddamn team on the fast break.

::quick glance at T2 record over last two seasons::

“… yeah, that checks out…”

We’ll, at least there’s consistency with defense giving up goals.

Well, for a bunch of guys running around without a plan, we certainly looked like a bunch of guys running around.

Same old same old. Guess we now can concentrate on the regular season.

Entertaining, in a sort of disappointing way. Wish we’d look more disciplined in back. This junior high school recess stuff gets old.

Felt like the kind of game where we’d score in stoppage time. Oh well.

Getting goalied by RSL...some things never change

That sucks. I wish they would play like there was 5 minutes left instead of 5 seconds left

Well, it was a good run, eh?

Fish are losing to the Gals. Unless we can come up with another goal soon, Cascadia might be exiiting the Open Cup entirely in a few minutes.

Can't tell who's slower Mabs or Rasmussen

Griffin getting shooting tips from Evander.

I liked Caliskan while watching him several times with T2. But he looks lost out there. And I have no idea what he's supposed to be doing out there.

ARGH...that was a really nice ball from Loria. Come on Asprilla

"Portland's hasn't been able to figure out how to have more possession." I didn't even know we cared about having any possession, whatsoever. Just ask our coach!

Meanwhile, Mabiala is watching the fake grass grow.

Highlight of the match may be the way the ref just gave Loria that yellow matador style.

Honestly, it’s whatever. At least it’s been interesting so far.

A T2 central midfield can’t be helping.

Expand full comment

Have we had a long ball work out? Maybe try something else

Expand full comment

Well, Mabs was certainly jogging, wasn't he? And the defense was following suit.

This back line is so, so bad.

Mabs on a walkabout

Expand full comment

This is just comically bad.

Why, oh why, can’t we lock down a lead?

Or even a draw?

Expand full comment

We're headed to extra time and pk shootout, right?

Expand full comment

Whacky.

Let's score about 3 more for insurance

Wth did I just miss? Needs to prep for dinner and I return to a Timbers comeback~? Two goals?! I just saw the Goda screamer. Holy smokes! USOC after dark, indeed.

Expand full comment

That was pretty! Long serve in to Nathan(?) who knocked it down and Niezgoda finished. 3-2.

Expand full comment

Goda ain't missing from there.

Expand full comment

There we go. Boys ate their Wheaties at half.

Expand full comment

Ok. We got a game

Expand full comment

Rasmussen with the counter-golazo!!!

Expand full comment

Rassmussen?!>?!?!?!

Expand full comment

Offsides it said right there on the stat board

Expand full comment

What we need now is someone on RSL to do Blanco dirty so he can get his revenge

Expand full comment

Defensive lapse + golazo - nice Paredes pressure + Seba finish = 1-2 at the half. Not feeling this as hiding; unlucky plus not really going all-out…

Expand full comment

Rather unfortunate for Rasmussen but sometimes you give an inch and you pay the price. That said, that was a real golazo so not much to say except to tighten up on the defensive positioning.

Expand full comment

RSL and their keepers

Expand full comment

Just a crazy good shot. Can't be too upset about that.

Expand full comment

Hate to admit that was a golazo, but…fuuuuck that was a golazo…

Expand full comment

Wow, beautiful shot.

Expand full comment

Backline really scrambling to clear lines.

Expand full comment

Clegg..!

What a stupid goal

If you have to play Mabiala, this is the match
