Champions League: No Consolation Found for Columbus at Azul Stadium

Chris GiffordContributor IAugust 27, 2009

The Crew went to Mexico and lost, 5-0

But it wasn't just a loss, it was an embarrassment. Cruz Azul did everything they needed to do while the Crew checked exactly zero things off of their list. Keeper mistakes, an own goal, a terrible PK call, and no hustle all night long add up to a good old-fashioned beat down. 

I've never left a game before the final whistle, ever, but last night I left when it was 0-3 in the 60th minute. I just couldn't watch. I don't know how to say it other than the Crew were breaking my heart. It was almost as bad as Aaron Effing Boone in the '03 ALCS

That's all I have to say about that.

Highlights (if you can call them that) are here.
