Game 15: Notes
The Crew gutted out a good win Saturday night, my review is up at Columbus Underground. The team believed that it was good to just get a result; I would have liked some better soccer.
- Brad Friedel was on vacation and stopped by to congratulate the Crew on their win. He certainly was a presence at 6 foot 5 inches. The Douglass clan was also on hand in a crowded locker room.
- Juan Carlos Osorio looks spent. He did not have an answer for yet another road loss. This team is already looking to 2010. I don’t think Osorio will make it until then.
- Moreno was rested due to his busy schedule, but Lenhart acquitted himself very well. He was mobile and got to a lot of the long balls. I am really interested to see who starts on Friday.
- The O’Rourke/Carroll central midfield was solid. O’Rourke had an outstanding game. That pairing is very defensive and makes it difficult to link offense to defense in the middle of the field.
- The Crew now play 3 out of 4 at home. Next week is against conference leading D.C. United followed by a trip to Chicago to take on the very solid Fire. July is the month for the Crew to make their move.
