The RSL Show (44) - RSL v NYCFC & Seattle match preview

Quick match recap with our good friend Mitch and a preview of the game on the weekend v Seattle.


Okay, let's just be honest and say that it wasn't pretty for all 90 min but it worked and we got 3 points. Defensively things were shaky to start. Organization and communication were...lacking...nonexistent...hopeless...for stretches, but that is to be expected when yet again we had a makeshift back-line.

Giving away an early goal yet again had us feeling all sorts of things, but they found some cahones and made their way back to some decent moments, finding some goals along the way.

Seattle on the weekend will be an interesting test for RSL. They have been struggling much like we have been. An interesting case study when you look at their replacing a coach and going on a run last season, but are now on less points than RSL with a game in hand.

Will Clint Dempsey start or play in this one? He rode the pine midweek against SKC in a 3-0 loss. Early kick this weekend so less time to be anxious about this one.
