Social media reacts to the Black & Gold’s draw in Seattle.

The mood was positive among Columbus Crew SC fans following an intense 1-1 draw against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night. The Black & Gold took a 1-0 lead on the road in a tough place to play but conceded a penalty kick late in the second half to settle for the draw.

Despite the late penalty and a few missed chances, fans saw great performances from many of the Crew’s starters and bench players. Fans heaped praise on the midfield and young players, and began lobbying Major League Soccer media for Jonathan Mensah to be rewarded for his efforts.

Considering the difficult schedule to start the season, with the Crew facing the top team in the Eastern Conference last year at home and the MLS Cup champions on the road, fans saw the points gained as proof of an improving Columbus side.

And some fans mused that maybe the Crew really are the greatest team the world has ever seen.

Many in Crew fandom and the national media were also quick to acknowledge the stellar work of Jordan Angeli as the Crew’s new TV analyst.

Crew fans continue to be positive about their team, with recent results only affirming hopes for a good season. Although, many of them might be looking to see more goals this upcoming weekend when Real Salt Lake come to MAPFRE Stadium.
