I didn't mind "shoot on sight" for the first 75 minutes; it's absolutely called for and a good approach. However, afterwards, that philosophy is moot, as you're no longer trying to get the defense to respect your range. At 75+, you've got to create high-percentage chances, and Sporting has been abysmal at ball movement all year. Tonight was about as good as I've seen in the short game, and it still wasn't enough. EVEN WITH THAT SAID, they still focused on crosses far more than they should've, especially considering the hands and aerial ability of the Dynamo GK. I did recognize their deliberate attempts to make Houston respect the middle, but that's even more difficult when you've got 10 men crowding the penalty box. Just a really difficult task, but we could've done SO much more, and Vermes had no place using zero subs.
