The Wizards seemed to mail in another game last night against the Revolution, as they fell to them for second game in a row. Again the Wizards didn't seem to play with much heart and were completely shut down offensively. The Wizards could only manage 6 shots, and only 1 shot on goal. The lack of testing Matt Reis is troublesome as the Wizards offense has started to sputter. The first place Revolution have now probably eliminated the Wizards from contention for the Supporters Shield with that loss. The Wizards high powered offense has lost it's claws lately. Now is the time when we learn exactly what type of coach Curt Onalfo as he tries to pull the Wizards out of the slump they're in, in hopes of ending their 2 year playoff dry spell.
After having 17 days off, you would think the Wizards would come out fresh and ready to play, unfortunately they looked like the less fresh team compared to New England who was undermanned and only on 3 days rest.
The one bright side of last night's performance was the play of Eloy Colombano, who came on at halftime for Yura Movsisyan and showed very well in his first appearance in Wizards blue.
3 Stars of the Game
1. Avery John - NE - Again helped to shut down the Wizards offense, specifically Eddie Johnson who has not looked like the same player the past few games.
2. Shalrie Joseph - NE - Joseph helped completely shut down the Wizards midfield, the Wizards had to start resorting to route 1 soccer due to the play in the middle.
3. Eloy Colombano - KC - The Wizards best player, in his debut Colombano gave the Wizards a bit more attack in the second half.
