Well, when it comes to the history of the rivalry between Real Salt Lake and the Portland Timbers, that date was the last occasion Portland was able to celebrate a victory. In the interim, the Claret-and-Cobalttook seven wins and three draws from Portland. That stretch included a sweep in the 2013 MLS Western Conference […]

High times in Frisco will be tempered quickly with the arrival of Clint Dempsey’s Seattle Sounders.
The Whitecaps play the first game of a home and away series versus the Galaxy at the StubHub Center this weekend. The last trip to LA earlier this year ended with Kekuta Manneh rescuing a point against a 10 man Chivas USA. Since joining MLS in 2011, Vancouver has never picked up a point on […]

Since the last post, Sporting Kansas City has had some up’s and down’s but those down’s seem to be as deep as the Mariana Trench. After having a 1-0 lead against Cruz Azul in the CONCACAF Champions League, Sporting KC was, for lack of a better term, embarrassed in Mexico losing 5-1. I’m not going […]

For the second time in 4 matches, TFC has shocked both their opponent and their supporters. The first surprise was against a strong Seattle side. The second was this past Saturday against an unbeaten Columbus side on the season, and a team that has had Toronto’s number since they joined MLS.
