With their backs to wall, I was hoping to see the team play with an extra bit of desperation.  Maybe that would have resulted in a wild game where RSL scored multiple goals but at least we would be going for the full 3 points we desperately need.

All we got instead was what we have seen all year long.

A player gets sent off in the first half against a top flight team (LA, September 4).

RSL wins solely off of a penalty kick (RSL, July 8)

Sean Johnson turns in a great performance only to be let down by the offense (Every game since August 21st)

No aggressive runs forward and no through balls (Link)

I'll have more reruns and more thoughts later on.
