TFC versus LA Galaxy


Joe Keeper

Excellent game. The high pressure of the 4-3-3 system is starting to work. Got terribly caught on the first goal though. TFC deserved the point and perhaps a win. Bourmann, Yarouslavsky, Santos, Gordon had excellent games. Also Henry played well for his first game. Only 4 points out of a playoff spot.

Watched the game from PVR today. I think they played better in Colorado but this was still an impressive showing against a strong side. I know LD and their keeper were on Gold Cup duty but so were some of TFC's players. In a poor passing league like MLS you can see how pressure high up in numbers can cause havoc but leaving your defense 1 on 1 (much less 2 defending against 3) is not a good long term tactic. At times there were 4 TFC players within 20 feet of the ball and a couple of others covering lateral passes. If LA had a long ball and a decent deep threat (like Donovan) you'd have been in more trouble.

Good to see you get a point on the road.
