  1. Montreal got hit pretty hard by injuries at CB this season. With Rivas ans Ferrari coming back into the fold and Nesta getting his first start, we saw how much good CBs can make a team. Rivas and Nesta were beasts. They denied New York’s offense and made it look easy. Ricketts being Ricketts, he made it interesting by fumbling a couple easy balls… Still don’t understand why the Red Bulls didn’t sign Nesta when they had the chance, they could’ve used him in Montreal.
