Rank and File: Union vs. Los Angeles Galaxy

Here's how you rated the Union's performance in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Los Angeles at PPL Park.


Goalkeeper

Faryd Mondragón: 7.42
- "The Dragon was great and he earned some serious fans by gutting out what looked like a pretty serious groin injury." Dave Q.)
- "Faryd gets +1 for playing hurt and making a great save 0.2 seconds after making an appeal to the sideline referee." (Osager)


Defenders

Danny Califf: 6.67
- "Danny Califf demonstrated how to be an effective center back even in the face of seriously faster opposition. Nice job Danny." (Osager)

Jordan Harvey: 5.75 

Carlos Valdés: 6.83
- "It's still early, but I'm calling it. Valdés will be MLS Defender of the Year. Book it." (George Hasenecz)

Sheanon Williams: 6.50


Midfielders

Brian Carroll: 5.75
- "Lost possession a few too many times, and not quite as calm on the ball as I would have liked." (Mark Nakahara)

Keon Daniel: 5.17
- "Keon Daniel had a particularly off-night, although he and Kyle served up some pretty good free kicks/corner kicks." (Osager)

Justin Mapp: 4.75
- "Lefty-only Mapp has become the butt of jokes in our section. That's not good." (Alex Seldin)

Kyle Nakazawa: 4.75
- "Two wicked free kicks which ended up being our best chances of the 1st half. Tried to get forward and support the attack." (George Hasenecz)
- "Nakazawa's free kicks are excellent, but are they worth taking someone like Okugo off the field for? " (Brian D.)

Roger Torres: 5.92
 

Forwards

Sebastien Le Toux: 5.92
- "I think we're going to have to get used to less production from Le Toux, as teams are now taking him out of the game. It's time for other players to start stepping up." (Brian D.)

Jack McInerney: 5.90

Danny Mwanga: 7.58
- "Mwanga was the best player for either side, and I don't know why a 20-something year old can't play a full 90. Please start him!" (Dave Q.)
- "Mwanga played great and it wasn't just about the goal. He looked terrific moving with the ball. No, he should not be a starter. He never looks as good in the games he starts." (Osager)

Carlos Ruiz: 4.83
- "We need to sort out the offense. Ruiz isn't working. Either get him out or change the formation." (Ethan Gomberg)
- "My new name for this season is: 'Waiting for Carlos.' I hope it turns out to be worth it." (Hollanri)
