Sure was a nice game on Friday night. Fantastic to have Jones back in the midfield – he is a world class player. Also loved Tim Ream on the left and Cameron on the right. A good defensive effort for a change – still not sure on Alvarado a few times out of spot. I thought Besler looked great on the left inside after halftime – a bunch of clearances and the last second a few covers of a still questionable Alvarado. (man does this guy and Chandler have pics on the German or what?) I just don’t see what Klinsy does on those guys. I thought Zardes was spectacular – man of the match spectacular. Also Mix played very well in 2nd half in the middle. Good high pressure. Of course nice to have Altidore back to his normal self!!
Can’t Wait for tonite!!
