How does the grading work there though? If I'm not mistaken, it looked like it went from 1-5, not 1-10... I wasn't sure though if 1 was best and 5 the worst or the other way around. Because I read a review of his play via MLS and it sounded like he played pretty well, except being wasteful with a good chance which he hit on frame but right at the keeper.

Anyways just curious. Because no one had higher than a 4.5 and no one lower than 2. On either team. And St. Pauli won.

1 = Best 5 = Worst

The MLS website doesn't exactly have the greatest track record of being impartial in their analysis.

good news, though, is that he was tied for second highest rating of all players, with 2 others getting the 4.5 and the highest grade given was a 5 (Thy).

Seems to me that they're being very hard on their criteria or it was just a crappy game and a few of the turds floated to the top...having not seen the game myself, I can't make that call.

1-6 scale

1 is a very rare score (the best)
6 is also very rare and it is a horrible, horrible score

oh God, that means it was tied for second to worst player on the pitch...shocking. Again, I didn't see the game so I can't really dispute the validity of their entire grading system.

Got it. Thanks for the clarity. Well then sad to hear but at least he got a full ninety... If he was completely atrocious I would've expected a substitution, especially with a lead.

saw him play for the u23 side against mexico and thought he was one of the better players on the pitch for either side. i hadn't looked at my program yet to see any of the players, and was so impressed with one of his runs down the left that i had to check out who he was.

@MSantoine, agree and disagree, I'd like to see more from the "young guns" of the reg. nat. team to mingle with the call ups from the u23 side...I'd like to see Shea, Cameron, Chandler and Gonzo in there with the likes of Boyd, Gyau and Mxx, all being lead by Dempsey as capt., who's passion should translate well into that official leadership role.

He had the Mexican defense shaking in their boots in that game. I wish Porter would of started him in Olympic Qualifying instead of Shea who was non existent.

Starting again today and just helped set up St. Pauli's first goal by blowing past a defender on the wing.
