You do realize the majority of full backs are small/undersized? He also played in the EPL for a few years for the Spurs. He left Europe because he got too old.

Rivero seems like a good kid. If he plays his cards right, he should be transferred to a decent club in Europe without the bad blood that resulted from Camilo's defection.

Looks like the Techera deal is done, based on word from his parent club in Uruguay.

I was at the game last night. Great atmosphere and of course, it helped that the 'Caps had the ball a lot more than the last game.

There's not much to be said other than the fact that the Galaxy looked very ordinary. I don't know if Gerrard will give them the boost they need, but they just don't have the same magic when Landon Donovan was around. Looks like there's a power shift going on the league. Hopefully the 'Caps can keep it going - there could be an opportunity to do some real damage this year.

Two things wrong with that Columbus goal. One, Mattocks can't do anything else but run, so his crossing is shit, and he's too lazy to come back to defend, and two, WHERE THE FUCK WAS ADEKUGBE?! Kamara was WIDE OPEN on the wing!

It's gotta be the worst start defensively so far this year
Rivero to the rescue!

Cash Manneh...he definitely gave Mattocks that boost he was missing in the first half.

Wow. Amazing game tonight. Although the result did not show. Whitecaps performance was amazing. Total domination with pressure and attack.

Such an entertaining match!

Mattocks had his goal and some flashes of brilliance, but then again, he's known for those spaghetti legs of his most of the time.

Mattocks had a good game, but wasted several chances. He has speed, but he doesn't have a footballing mind. Rivero is pure class - probably a better all-around striker than Camilo ever was (bold statement, I know).

Tough way to lose 2 points, but Columbus is a very decent team. I think the Caps will be lucky to get a draw in San Jose.

we were lucky not to be down by a couple in the first half...it was a fire drill in the back end.
Ousted also bailed em out once but he also gave away that second goal.
But yeah, they shouldve capitalized on all the set pieces in the second half...Mattocks had so many chances to finish and he just couldn't...Morales was average at best.

Who knows about SJ...just need to tighten up defensively and put away those chances
can't watch cus its on tsn2 guess i'll have to stream

Portland supporters questioned why we signed him because he's known for boneheaded decisions like that pass. I guess we get what we pay for sometimes.

Ousted's been a rock. It's Kah that Timbers fans questioned. He's a glue guy in the locker room, but can be devastatingly awful on the pitch.

Dont get me wrong I love Rivero but the guy needs to stop going around people, he cant do it very well and play the team game, hes got 5 goals right now he could have even more thats the scary part about him, hes that good.

I question this statement.

His movement opens up space for others, and because he opens up those channels, he's finding himself in spots to score. He's playing the team game well, again with his movement and beating defenders one on one, and his hold up play has been brilliant because if he doesn't win the dribble, he's at least holding up play. We haven't had a striker this good since Kenny Miller (and he's pedestrian by comparison).

Team game case in point: the game against Columbus. He held off a defender with a forearm for at least 3 seconds to open up space for mezquida they switched off, mezquida shot it and rivero was there for the goal. He's not selfish by any means and doesn't waste shots like manneh (who is getting better but infuriates me with some of the shots he takes)

He's brilliant, bar none. We'll see if he can continue that production.

missed this game
looked like it was yellow parade though...what was up with that. I rmbr looking at the score app and seeing all these yellow cards
Caps now have 9 more yellows than anyone else in MLS

And Morales won't be playing the next game because of that stupid red.
