Powerless Metro shutout by previously-winless LA

Three straight league losses. No goals on the road. One shot on goal in the entire match. Enough is enough.

The finger has to be pointed, and there's only one person to point it at. Juan Carlos Osorio.

Pathetic. Utterly pathetic.

4-5-1 against a winless team? Another starting 11 that never player with each other? Mac Kandji floating as a useless left wing? Jorge Rojas attempting to run the offense as he either gets stripped of the ball or sends a pass directly to the opponent's feet?

In theory, it might have been a tie; the hand ball on Seth Stammler that led to Landon Donovan's penalty kick was a questionable call. But tonight, they didn't deserve a tie.

They deserved what they got; a lifeless, powerless, impotent team deserved -- and got -- absolutely nothing.

Your move, Juan Carlos Osorio.

Enough is enough.

Lineup: Conway, Pacheco, Goldthwaite, Mendes, Johnson, Stammler, Ubiparipovic, Rojas, Richards, Kandji, Angel. Subs: Celades, Borman, Wolyniec.
