RBNY vs Earthquakes: Still Not Able To Close The Deal

You talk about letting a sure three points slip from your grasp - wow! Another ridiculous defensive breakdown and the New York Red Bulls saw another late lead slip away in the dying minutes of regulation. Yes, it was two points down the drain and an end to Steven Lendhart's goal-scoring drought (you're welcome ya big douche).

While the Red Bulls created several great chances that should have bulged the proverbial "Onion Bag", one goal should have been enough to win this one. Shambolic attempted clearances, by Sekagya - then Alexander, allowed the Quake's "Lenny" his one moment of glory this season (in the 85th minute) and it was another 3 points squandered by RBNY.

What else it's there to say, it's definitely "On of Those Seasons". Yeah, playoffs, a bit of a run, anything can happen, yadda, yadda, yadda... Whatever! To be honest withcha, I'm not getting the vibe that this is an MLS Cup winning team. At the end of the day, let's just have a bit of a laugh about it this season and hope that the "Powers-That-Be" do the right thing for our glorious 2015 campaign.

That's it for me! Hope to see you all next time @The Cathedral of Football, Red Bull Arena (built by Makita). It's the big viper saying adieu, for now.
