Oh man, Portland. Always an interesting 90 min and this one was a great way to spend a Saturday night.
Memories of 4-1 and 10 cards flooding back before this one. The lineup hits and as per the usual we have reactions, but so positive this time. We talk about how important MSilva and Danny Acosta are to the overall shape, both defensively and in the attack, they are. Adding them back in was a noticeable change on both sides of the ball. The attack in this match was dynamic and aggressive, free-flowing and felt different. We discuss all the goals and the surprises that the two for us were. Let's have more of those, please! The Luis Silva injury is a bit of a gut check in this one. Watching the way the team changes style as Yura comes off the bench is something to take note of. As per the usual, Jake rants about some stuff here — hearkening back to the golden years of RSL.
