LA Galaxy Vs. New York Red Bulls Live, MLS Cup Playoffs 2011: Juan Agudelo On For Dax McCarty

So. Your team needs a goal, and you have promising striker prospect Juan Agudelo sitting on the bench waiting for his chance. Both of your strikers are on bookings. What do you do?

The answer, probably, is to take off a midfielder and go for broke, hoping that nobody gets sent off. However, you probably shouldn't take off your best player on the night, which is what Hans Backe just did, withdrawing Dax McCarty to introduce the teenager. We'll just have to wait and see if it works, but I'm skeptical for now.

Anyway, New York are on the attack against the Los Angeles Galaxy, but they're not pressing in the way you'd expect a team with about 25 minutes of season left to play unless they score. Their latest move ends when Jan Gunnar Solli looks up, sees Thierry Henry in space, and shoots wide from 35 yards. No, I don't know either. Still 1-1 here.
