He's played better in the second half, particularly once Rosales came on, but he is still not dangerous enough. It will take some time to adjust to MLS play. And he isn't surrounded by the same support that he was at Tottenham. I think it is reasonable to be concerned about his form though.

Concerned but not too concerned. It was his home debut in Seattle. Plus this was only his third game since moving.

Much better second half for Deuce.

But with all of the talent that is emerging at FWD, Deuce may be the one that is moved to the wing.

Man I wish Darlington Nagbe was already a US citizen. Dude is going to be a very good addition to the USMNT in the 2018 WC cycle, as long as he gets his citizenship in 2015.

Oh no not dropped from the squad. But possibly dropped from the starting 11.

I agree I have always felt Donovan's best position is underneath the main striker. And quite frankly he is a better fit underneath Jozy compared to Dempsey.

Dempsey has always thrived on being that third man coming from the left into the 18 yard box. I would like to see him at LW again. With either Beasley or Fabian overlapping.

But I will say that Klinsmann selections for the USMNT in attack are getting harder to make. Good on the talented players that are finally emerging and rounding into top form.

thought the flounders - timbers game was very good. played at a very fast pace - fun to watch.

really looking forward to western conference play-offs. every possible match-up between RSL, SEA, LA and PTFC will be great - high quality and great atmospheres...

everone saw LD's blast, right? im sorry, but i just dont see how putting LD on wing is a good option. have to say it again - x-mas tree - get LD (and dempsey) closer the 18

Original post from skangles

This rivalry is awesome but I can't say that it beats 90+ years of Packers vs. Bears hatred.

Bears/Packers is the only one that compares. But even then, I have never seen a regular season Bears v. Packers game with that kind of intensity. Sounders and Timbers fans talk s**t to each other all year...that rivalry defines both of their teams. It's like an actual soccer rivalry, not just an American pro sports rivalry.
