View from the Los Angeles Blues: Jun. 24, 2013

Fresh off a surprising 1-1 draw with the Los Angeles Galaxy Reserves, Daryoush Yazdani’s Los Angeles Blues were hoping to build on their result against Ivar van Dinteren’s Dayton Dutch Lions at Titan Stadium on the campus of California State University, Fullerton in Fullerton, Calif.

However, in the 90th minute, Tjeerd Westdijk received a pass from Gibson Bardsley to give the Dutch Lions a 1-0 victory over a side clearly in flux, and clearly out of ideas in terms of attacking and finishing.

The Blues are lagging in ninth place in the league and if things do not turn around in a hurry, Los Angeles are going to be out of the playoffs for a second straight season. Some time to think about this situation is most welcome.
