With FC Dallas pressuring for a late equalizer, Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum showed off his foot skills, juking Dallas midfielder Andrew Jacobsen. Here's what the Hammer had to say after the match about his shake-and-bake:
"Honestly, I know everyone was a little bit nervous, but I think all the guys will back me up on this: I probably have one of the better touches on the team. It shows in 5v2 every day and I'm confident. I didn't get the look I wanted. I was trying to play Gehrig. I was trying to tell Gehrig to show in the middle because there was space and he didn't. By the time I had to make a decision, the guy was on me, so I just juked him. I promise that's the last time that will happen--"
"Yeah… Yeah, it will be," interjected Danny O' Rourke.
"...Unless it happens again," Gruenebaum finished.
I think it's safe to say that despite Gruenebaum's prowess with the ball at his feet, Robert Warzycha won't be putting him at forward any time soon.
Several MLSers talk about their favorite player which happens to hold a special place in our hearts, Brian McBride.
