Man of the Match: San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake
By - jbburgess
Looking chiseled in the post game. Probably from 180 full on minutes per week
He is \*really\* fit this season. Never seen him like this - and he looks faster (still slow but not \*as\* slow). I think he wants to give it everything he has in his last year (or two).
Crazy work rate. He made our chances possible.
He was everywhere during the match. Played a Judson-esque game tonight.
we all know who it is but also s/o to Judson, was fantastic tonight
I love paying attention to how he plays the game, how he moves with and without the ball is great to show the next generation how to play (especially in central field).
What the heck has got into that guy? He’s been a machine this final stretch. And luckily he hasn’t been making any major wtf moments that lead to an easy goal for the other team. Maybe that was the Vega effect...
He's so dependable. Puts in a shift every game. When he finally scores we gotta give him the MOTM.
Yueill also played a very clean game and had two super clutch defensive interventions. Whole team was locked in defensively.
Jungwirth was everywhere tonight
Big fan of the Jungwirth-Alanis partnership, and hoping that Alanis starts to find his range on those long passes.
I'm a big believer in what Almeyda has done, but it's extremely frustrating how Jungwirth, after having a career season at CB the year before Almeyda, got mostly dropped from the rotation at that spot.
Obviously Wondo, but very encouraging to see Fierro have an impact. Also shout out to Assist King Salinas and JT "Cleansheet" Marcinkowski
