They didn't have control of the game in the First Half. In fact, Martinique had way more possession than I anticipated they would and they could've easily been up 1-2 goals at half. It was bad.

Is it wrong I wouldn't want the Rowdies to come into MLS as long as Bill Edwards was the chairman? I feel like he'd keep them uncompetitive for quite a while with his meddling, semi-clueless style and poison the market all over again. The Rowdies would end up being like Philadelphia or Chicago (before this season).

They looked a little better, but I think the fact Bruce called in 5 of his most grizzled vets speaks to his lack of confidence in this group's ability.

I wonder if calling Howard in means he send Guzan home to Atlanta early.

I guess it wasn't as bad as last Gold Cup group stage:

In: Howard, J. Gonzalez, Bradley, Nagbe, Altidore, Dempsey.
Out: Guzan, Johnson, Roldan, Bedoya, Rowe, Dwyer.

Sending Dwyer home over Agudelo confuses me unless they think Agudelo is better suited to come on as sub for the wing as Altidore and Morris are better than Dwyer as an out-and-out striker.

Hoping Gonzalez gets to actually play instead of us just riding Howard to the end of the tournament. I doubt he'll be quality come 2018 and Guzan showed he's not the next undisputed keeper so we need to see what Hamid, Horvath, and Gonzalez can bring in the box.

More confusing was sending Rowe back as he was the best player IMO.

Honestly just noticed Rowe is going home. Zardes staying though? Guessing it's just Arena sticking with players he knows better since it's the knockout portion?

It was pre-planned, so it may have nothing to do with merit.

Canada called up Larin ahead of Orlando's home and home against Atlanta.
