I always feel the G's play better without Becks and sometimes without Landon, its like the pressure is off and they can just go out and play and that is fun to watch.
At this point I'm more worried when Juni doesn't play then when Becks or LD don't play.
A big shoutout to Birchall he has stepped up his game and has been a vital cog in the G's machine and Barrett almost missed that sitter on the third goal, he makes Gordon look like Chicharito

Yep I agree and the game was a lot of fun to watch last night indeed (very good game as well). Big three points for LA which makes it even sweeter too

I should make this prediction every week

checking in on some MLS action from last week and I noticed the G's old buddy Davies is back to his diving ways and getting a point for DC, he really needs to stop doing that crap, and I hope Vaughn and the other refs won't give him the benefit of the doubt in the future and it will cost DC points when he actually does get fouled in the box.
I know diving is rampant but I always thought Davies was a hard worker and didn't need to cheat to succeed and it looks like he feels otherwise

you mean like he did to LA back in April?

I didn't see the one this past weekend, but a few people sent me messages about it.

The fines for diving need to happen more often... MLS got this one right.

Charlie probably got fined because this is at least the second time he's done this and gotten a PK and subsequently staved off a loss for United. Omar Gonzalez breathed on Charlie and got a PK called on him.
