Yeah, it's weird how much better SKC is on the road. I think that MLS teams must face major pressure to score goals for their home fans, which causes them to press. Which directly conflicts with the hypothetical strategy in this posts' first paragraph, I know.
Kansas City has some issues for sure. I think they have as good of a chance to with the MLS Cup as any other team when you take their strengths and weaknesses into account.
The nice thing is CJ looked as good against Houston as he has in a really long time. CJ has had a rough year even though he has had some good moments and goals.
During his ROY season even when CJ wasn't scoring goals he was always creating danger...it was amazing he was always finding space...beating guys...and just creating havoc. You don't see as much of that this year but I saw it a lot in the Houston game.
If CJ can pick up his game that is pretty big. We have a hue week coming up next week for sure.
