Overmatched Metro embarrassed in LA, 4:0
September 28, 2014
In this club's 19-year history, there have been some bad, bad weeks. This one is up there. Coming off a pathetic scoreless tie that knocked them out of the Champions League, Metro was embarrassed at LA, 4:0. Ugh.
Here's where we usually talk about lineup changes and recap the game action, but after watching this debacle, we just don't have it in us. Let's just visit some key points:
LA is much better than us
Robbie Keane undressed Roy Miller on the opening goal
Chris Duvall's mistake early in the second was a back-breaker
We need a competent defender to pair with Jamison Olave
Richard Eckersley is not dead
Richard Eckersley resembles a walking corpse
It could have been worse
Marc de Grandpre once fired Bruce Arena
LA is much, much better than us
And we'll leave you with this... when the choice is Champions League advancement or MLS playoffs, what if we end up with... neither?
Lineup: Robles, Miller, Olave, Sekagya, Duvall, McCarty, Alexander, Cahill, Luyindula, Wright-Phillips, Henry. Subs: Eckersley, Bover, Obekop.
