Rank and File: Union at Colorado Rapids

The latest ratings are about what you'd expect. You know it was a bad game when even Sebastien Le Toux gets a low number.

Rank and File: Union at Colorado Rapids

The latest ratings are about what you'd expect. You know it was a bad game when even Sebastien Le Toux gets a low number.

I will be chatting during tomorrow's game against Houston, so if you won't be at PPL Park I hope you'll join me. Kickoff is at 4 p.m.


Goalkeeper

Brad Knighton: 3.88
- "Knighton cannot be blamed for most of the goals, but he has to smother shots like the 3rd goal." (Chris Lane)

Defenders

Danny Califf: 3.13
- "Space never scored a goal, so why mark it?" (Osager)

Jordan Harvey: 3.38
- "Only defender that was not directly responsable for a goal." (Jared R.)

Michael Orozco Fiscal: 3.17

Sheanon Williams: 3.38
- "The worst offender of the bunch was Williams. His vaunted throw-ins did nothing and he contributed nothing to the offense. To the defense he contributed, but all negative. I am not positive who was supposed to be marking Cummings on the first two goals, but it would seem it should have been Williams. Then he was standing right next to Thompson on the free kick, but just stood there when the ball rebounded off, letting "his man" go in for an easy score." (Chris Lane)


Midfielders

Fred: 3.75
- "Deserved to be subbed out. As much as I appreciate his creativity and passing, he cannot play a wide position." (Jeff P.)

Andrew Jacobson: 4.50
- "Should be playing more, maybe in place of Miglioranzi, who looked fatigued and disinterested." (Jeff P.)

Justin Mapp: 4.13
- "Not so sure about subbing him off, as he has provided a spark since his arrival." (Jeff P.)

Stefani Miglioranzi: 4.00

Kyle Nakazawa: 4.25

Amobi Okugo: 3.00
- "Mwanga, apparently, did not make the trip.  From the looks of the action on the field, neither did Califf or Okugo." (Peter N.)
- "Okugo was essentially useless the entire match.  He didn't make any stops of significance and his distribution was non-existent.  Almost like we were playing with 10 men." (Chris Lane)


Forwards

Sebastien Le Toux: 4.50
- "Really needs Danny out there to take coverage away. Without Mwanga, he had a tough time getting open." (Jared R.)

Jack McInerney: 5.63
- "Great finish on the goal! I look forward to more playing time for him next year." (Steve O.)

Alejandro Moreno: 4.00
