First Impressions - Chicago Fire 3 : 0 DC United (US Open Cup Semifinals)

Attention to Detail.

It's what DC didn't have in this game. After frittering away a first half where Chicago had more of the ball, DC started to play better in the second. Yet that's when they gave up all three goals, and two can be put down to stilly stupid misplays that set up Chicago's attacking chances. Frusturating.

Still, need an upside? Freddy and Donnet both played better. Downside? Erpen was finally punished for some of the reckless plays he's made this year, and he'll be anchoring the defense on Saturday.

Blech. No US Open Cup Title for us this year. Time to focus on the MLS related hardware.

I just want to go to bed now.

As if this Bad Week could get worse...


John Wilson is out for the season... which makes our backline very very thin this weekend.

Very thin? We've got Prideux back! YAY!

I'm glad I couldn't listen to the game, just had the match tracker on in a background window.

Erpen's recklessness is starting to get worrisome, what with the penalty on Saturday and the red card today.

Good night everybody...

I am just happy I went to bed after the first goal.
