    Loons have a good chance to take three points from this one, and if they’re going to make me look smart and be competitive in this league, this game is really a must win. San Jose won the first two games of the year at home, and they’ve been utterly awful since.

  • Chris RB

    This could be a good test of the offense. Gonna have to be more effective than last week, and against a decent bunkering defense. Here’s hoping CR21 has a great game.

  • Jake Rueter

    I’m hoping to see continued growth from our defense and midfield. Build on that clean sheet!

  • Austin

    Ibson is complete garbage. Slow, weak shot, poor passing. Great at taking fouls because he holds onto the ball way too long. Poacher #21 didn’t get a goal last week so we’ll see about this week.

    • Brian Quarstad

      Last week coach Heath called Ibson one of the most skillful players he has ever coached or even played against. There’s a reason United brought him along to MLS. Yes, there are moments h can be frustrating but he is one of the few creative players we have on the team. Last week his Audi player index was the second highest of any player on either team.

      • Austin

        I just don’t see it. Too many knocks on him. I could go on and on. His index rating for last week’s game isn’t saying much considering it was MN vs Colorado. But I’m hopeful he can cut down on his turnovers this coming game, would be nice to get another three points.

    The minimum that ref could have done at the end there with Molino in the box, is give the play on signal right away so that Ramirez knew

    A lose that feels like a lose
