FCD vs SKC: The good and the bad | Big D Soccer

Here is one of our recaps posted from last night as we dove into some of the good and not so good things from Saturday’s draw with SKC. Let’s just say that part of the bad may have had to do with some tired legs.

Oh Jozy, such an interesting player to watch. When he is hot, he is unstoppable but when he is not, you pretty much forget he is out on the pitch.

Kljestan making his claim as the league’s best No.10 | FourFourTwo

It is a pretty bold claim that people are making right now with Sacha Kljestan that he is the league’s best 10. But I also think it is even bolder that he hasn’t received a national team call in a while.
