- Andrew Long@andrew_2215Easily the best #Crew96 has played all season and this version of the team is really really really fun to watch
- Ben Ferree@bferree12#Crew96 have more goals tonight than they did the entire month of June (Granted, that was only 3 games)

- John Lavelle@frickinpunxView photoPipa!!!!!!! #crew96
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyThat was as solid of a header as we've seen from the Crew all season. Also the first goal scored by a #crew96 defender this year.
- Ryan Swenar@rswenarView photoLA who? 4-1 #crew96
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellGOAL COLUMBUS! PIPO GONZALEZ! This is the biggest win of the year, against the toughest opponent. Insanity. #Crew96
- 85'D#2Todd DunivantD#33Dan Gargan
- 84'4 - 1DGOAL: Giancarlo GonzalezGoals this Season: 1
- Kristian Russell@Kristian_16What is up with the team tonight? Guys are looking out of it. Not something you want to see when the games are down to the wire. #LAGalaxy
- Taylor Engen@swede8View photoDare to be massive #Crew96
- Thomas Floyd@thomasfloyd10I think it's safe to say Penedo will want that one back. #CLBvLA
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerThere was a #crew96 game against Los Angeles, in 2009 I think, where Arena basically said afterwards that his team was completely outclassed
- Kristy McCray@KristyMcCrayView photo
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyWil Trapp points to a section of fans in the Nordecke and thumps his chest as #crew96 celebrates Speas' goal.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSSpeas makes it three of the best #Crew96 goals of the season. What a goal. What a match. What a performance.
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Speas has only been in the game 1 minute and has a goal. #Crew96 up 3-1 75'
- Cody Sharrett@CodySharrettJ9 walks off slowly. I would too. The round of applause is well-earned this evening. #Crew96

- Ben Ferree@bferree12Speas taking off his warmup. Looks to be coming in soon. #Crew96
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerWow, the Galaxy defense is passive - better composure from Schoenfeld there and the #crew96 is up 3-1. Yards of space.
- Kathleen Crockett@katcrockett25View photoHoping the rain holds off! Go #crew96 #thanksld
- 70'F#9Alan GordonM#24Stefan Ishizaki
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellLA Galaxy keep giving Crew players plenty of license to launch from long range. Schoenfeld hits blast off post. Amazing game. #Crew96
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_Insider#Crew96 has set a season-high in shots on target in this match. Up to nine now, still 20 minutes and change remaining.
- scot@hangthadjIs Arrieta not fit, or does Berhalter's system have something against strikers who can actually score? #Crew96
- Patrick Guldan@GuldanMRFinlay absolutely gave Rogers the runaround. Now DeLaGarza and Sarvas will track him. Big advantage for #Crew96.
- Michael Ryder@rydermichaelView photo#Crew96 #Columbus #ColumbusCrew #Ohio #JoelsExcited @jude_palmer @jvoxo818
- Adam Serrano@LAGalaxyInsider62' SAVE PENEDO! Finger tip save by #ElGeneral to deny Higuain. Looks like Rogers is hurt, but he's back up.
- 64'M#6Baggio HusidicD#14Robbie Rogers
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Tchani with a nice shot! Low and quick, but an easy save as it's right at Penedo. #Crew96 still up 2-1 62'
- 63'F#18Aaron SchoenfeldF#29Adam Bedell
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Schoenfeld jogs to the #Crew96 bench and is preparing to check in.
- Meika Travis@meikatravisView photo#crew96 streamer tie
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderUnderrated play by Trapp to break up an LA counter. He consistently does the things that don't show up in any box score so, so well. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Rogers with a nice kick to prevent a #Crew96 corner, makes it a throw in instead.
- Sean Steffen@SeanSteffenKeane dropping more is a good adjustment. Puts s man at the top of the box pulling cms without sacrificing center mid cover behind #CLBvLA
- ⚽️ᑌKIᗩᕼ KIᖇᔕᑕᕼᑎEᖇ⚽️@ukiahkirschner2View photo#crew96
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Trapp with a solid volley to Bedell, who headed it nicely to Finlay, but his shot is right at the goalie. #Crew96
- Christian Roehm@cookiesncroehmView photoA beautiful night for the beautiful game. #Crew96
- Michael Johnson@mj_johnson23View photoGlad I get to watch this man play his last game in Cbus! #crew96
- Sean Steffen@SeanSteffenLA always does well when they find themselves attacking with a numbers advantage. #LAGalaxy
- 49'2 - 1F#11GOAL: Gyasi ZardesGoals this Season: 10
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellIt’s incredibly important for the Crew to come out with the same, if not more energy in the first 15 minutes of the second half. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLS#Crew96 have been prone to starting halves poorly this year. They'll look to avoid that tonight.

- sbarros1919@sbarros1919View photoBeautiful night #crew96
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderThe key now is containing the dangerous LA attack with the expectation that they'll throw numbers forward. Halfway to a big win. #Crew96

- Bobby Jocson@bobbyjocson_View photoHeyyo! #columbus #crew
- Brian Smith@Brians_MythThe #LAGalaxy are looking really tired on the pitch. Or just not that into it.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Steve Clark was very frustrated in the locker room after last week's lost. He's playing like a man on a mission. #Crew96
- Kristy McCray@KristyMcCrayView photo
- bucahenze@bucahenzeView photoIt's a great night for some #Crew96 soccer!!! #GloryToColumbus
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellThe Galaxy are going with essentially a 4-2-4 formation, and are so quick and dangerous, especially around the box. #LAGalaxy
- Matt Owens@mattyoloowensView photoAt my very first soccer game. Seeing #TheCrew play #LAGalaxy, Landon Donovan's first game since announcing retirement. #MLS #FirstTimeForEverything #ThanksLD
- Brian Smith@Brians_Myth#LAGalaxy are doing what my intramural team did. Lack of control, long aerial passes forward and a reliance on crossing to score. Won't work

- Mitch Hammond@mitchellb11View photoGOALLLL FOR THE CREW #crew #crew96 #thisiswild
- Brian Smith@Brians_MythThe #LAGalaxy are bunching up in the midfield on one player, leaving others open and the defense, alone with their errors, are feeling it.
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Meram with a goal and an assist in just 33'. His pass was a soft layoff that the LA defense was not expecting. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSWhat is happening in Crew Stadium tonight? Looks an awful lot like things are clicking for the Crew. Finlay slams one home. 2-0 #Crew96

- dksb17@dksb17View photoPerfect night for some soccer here in Columbus... #Crew96
- Bob O'Shaughnessy@oshaughnessyI would say that Rodney is playing cynically, but that would imply that he could do that on purpose. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSLast week, Gregg Berhalter said that four or five guys had an off day. Today, four or five guys are having their game of the season. #Crew96
- Corner Of The Galaxy@GalaxyPodcastPlease stop trying to loop the ball into Ishizaki. It's embarrassing. #LAGalaxy
- firstname.lastname@example.orgView photo#crew96
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Very interested to see how #Crew96 play this. Have only played with a lead 5 times this year and this LA team won't stop attacking.

- Rachel Tarian@racheltarianView photo#Crew96 goal!!
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Tony Tchani gets the assist. Great bend from Meram, he has been getting excellent movement on all of his shots lately. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSWelp. There's your goal of the week. Justin Meram with the "WHOOP" spin around two Galaxy defenders and a curler past Penedo. 1-0 #Crew96

- Doug Whitehead@dw31Rogers gets caught out again. We’re going to need Dunivant back for the playoffs. #LAGalaxy
- Dan@DanJS10Galaxy defense looks shaky right now. They gotta get it together quickly. #CLBvLA
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Berhalter spent time working one on one with Meram on Friday on his defensive approach. We will see if he uses that tonight. #Crew96
- Taylor Sturm@TSturmRSIf you haven't seen #Crew96's Ethan Finlay play, check him out. Quickly becoming one of my favorite players. He's very good.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLS#Crew96 are a little less organized and a little more active tonight. Lots of flying around, but lots of mistakes as well.
- Levi Boyd@mrboyd3View photoWatching the Columbus Crew take on Landon Donovan and the LA Galaxy. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Another giveaway. #Crew96 need to hold on to the ball or this game is going to get ugly, quick.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Sloppy start to the game for #Crew96. Have to clean things up against a high pressing Galaxy side.
- Ben Ferree@bferree12Clark's goal kick didn't get out of the box. Happened last week too. Really don't see that very often. #Crew96
- Dan@DanJS10Wow, Gargan was way outta position on that counter by CLB #CLBvLA
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew6': CHANCE - Huge counter-attacking opportunity for #Crew96 as Francis' early cross is scooped up by Meram, but Justin's shot goes high.
