    Terrible ref tonight. How about Dykstra with a PK save in the first few minutes of his career? That’s got to feel great.

    To give any kind of marketability to a game like this, the minutes Blanco played were necessary. This partnership was made possible because of the popularity of Blanco.

    Blanco should’ve given the ref a jersey.

    Club America would have made a great opponent for the MLS All-Star game.

    My school newspaper is claiming that Nyarko has been called up by Rajevac for Ghana.

    Has this been reported elsewhere? Its just a little snipet of information, with no quotes and whatnot. So it lacks the credibility that I would expect.

    Anyone else know anything about this?

    Any word on how Mike Banner played for the fire?

    DC Josh, are you ever not an arrogant turd?

    Great PK save by Dykstra at least!

    I’ve seen that reported on Luis Arroyave’s Red Card (Chicago Tribune) blog. The coach has taken a liking to him, and is going to bring him in for friendlies.

    Banner was nowhere to be found in the first half but came in and out in the 2nd.

    Banner looked good. He has a great touch on the ball. His crosses lacked steam though. Oh ya Blanco looked like garbage last night. He held on to the ball forever and slowed the whole attack down.

    That second goal was horrible, absolutely horrible, other than that I thought the fire had the better of the play, it was a good game i thought. and I think games like these help one the reserves get to play and too its kind of a bench mark international games are always played at a higher tempo and i think the players are always up for it.
