  1. Guzan not only looked horrible in goal, but what was up with the hair? And, to go along with Jacob, I seem to remember a fairly decent contingent of people who had Guzan slotted in above Howard for 2010, which I ridiculed. (Not to gloat or anything. No, actually, yes. I’m gloating.)

  2. I know Bretos was really referring to the strange circumstances of the goal, but it was nonetheless a very funny call

    Bretos: “It’s in!! Alan Gordon!! It’s a miracle!!”

  3. Wow. That was a thoroughly enjoyable game. I think that’s the first time I’ve felt that way after watching an MLS game this season. Good atmosphere, great pace (for any league standards, but especially for MLS), not only lots of goals but lots of chances created… Sure, there was some sloppy play–and especially sloppy defending on the part of the Galaxy–but a really exciting game nonetheless.

    I also want to gloat that when rumors arose last year that Guzan might be going to Arsenal, I ridiculed the rumor on the Offside blog and got hit hard for that by everyone. Now that the spotlight is on him (as opposed to mere stats–which I truly think are useless in soccer–speaking for him) his shortcomings come forth more clearly for all to see.

    Final thought–ironically, Gordon will probably get the start ahead of Buddle for the next game based on the scoring tally, but I think Buddle looked better than Gordon (which doesn’t necessarily mean he looked good) when he has started.

  4. Gordon back to his old self, skies one in the direction of the corner flag after receiving a perfect cross from Beckham. He was stretching a bit to get to it, to be fair.
