    it was written, no surprise in the result. But I was surprised with Arena’s half-hearted “serious” approach to the game by using many first teamers but throwing in the towel early by removing Donovan right after Seattle went up by 2. Saunders was not steady at all in goal and Berhalter and De La Garza pairing was disastrous in the middle.
