Seriously, you had to see this coming. The Colorado Rapids were coming off a signature win last weekend and came into the match against Seattle Sounders with everything to prove to supporters and MLS. A win was realistic and a result was a no brainer.
And the Rapids came away with a loss by two goals and dropped to 1-2-3 on the year.
1) The Rapids were the better team (through 45 minutes): No one in that stadium tonight could have said that Seattle was the better team after 45 minutes. I was not impressed with Seattle at all (and am still not) as they were second best by a long mile. But they were up by a goal after the first period.
2) But the second half: The Rapids had all of the momentum after one half, and came out as flat as could be. I did not know the team that came out in the final 45 and Seattle rightly took advantage.
3) The Rapids have work to do: Say all you want about Seattle and how they dive and flop, but the Rapids could not deal with them when it mattered. At this point, the Rapids are not a playoff team and a 3-1 pounding at home (and yes, the team is now -4 GD at home) is a tough pill to swallow as a supporter.
So Rapids fans, what did you think of the match tonight? Let us know below!
