Earlier this week I sat down with Robert McNicholas and talked about the potential expansion in Connecticut. There are several parties advocating for a team, so I’d like to make clear that my answers reflect only my views and not those of others involved in the process.
On Saturday afternoon the Whitecaps rolled into Portland for the last meeting of the year between the Cascadia rivals. Portland and Vancouver have been in a two horse race for the final western playoff spot for the last few weeks and Saturday’s game had massive consequences. The Whitecaps have had several games this season that, […]
In the 48th minute of Saturday’s game, Federico Higuaín stood over the ball, preparing to offer one of his trademark free kicks. The New England Revolution players were familiar with this sight as the Argentine scored a right-footed beauty at Gillette Stadium on July 26th. Just like he did that night, Higuaín found a way […]
After conceding first on Friday night, Real Salt Lake opened the flood gates, scoring four times before halftime and notching a fifth goal in the second stanza to defeat the Colorado Rapids 5-1. Jose Mari’s 21st minute opener was overwhelmed by goals from Joao Plata, Javier Morales, Chris Schuler, and Carlos Salcedo along with an […]
San Antonio Scorpions v Minnesota United FC This match is a top of the table clash. It is probably the best match of the weekend, and that’s why it is the Match Of The Week (the match of the week is streamed live on ESPN 3). The Scorpions lost last weekend against the Carolina Railhawks(3-1) […]
Being a referee is not an easy job. I for one would never and could never do it. It’s a ref’s job to keep order in matches, to penalize stupidity and recklessness and to maintain the flow and momentum.
The New England Revolution won their fifth straight on Saturday night as they downed the Montreal Impact 2-1. The victory had a feeling of familiarity as the Revs fought back from a deficit to secure full points for the third straight match. Jack McInerney, who has collected 10 career goals against New England, continued to […]
Every result is crucial in the battle for the Western Conference’s fifth and final playoff spot. Tonight’s match in Commerce City between the Portland Timbers and Colorado Rapids is no different. The Vancouver Whitecaps currently hold onto fifth place, ahead of Portland by just two points. Slightly further down the ranks is Colorado with 30 […]
After a huge 2-0 home victory over the San Jose Earthquakes, the Vancouver Whitecaps head south to play conference rivals FC Dallas. After ending their longest scoreless streak since joining MLS at 450 min, the spirit in the Whitecaps camp has significantly improved. Their playoff hopes have been given a much needed boost as they […]
I had the pleasure to go to New York City last week and got to go to the Sporting KC game vs. the Red Bulls and cheer my head off in The Cauldron. The 266 member strong Cauldron who was at Red Bull Arena all received free tickets to the game thanks to Sporting KC, who […]
Tonight the Whitecaps will play their last game in a 3 game home stretch as their playoff hopes teeter on a knife edge. An embarrassing 3-0 defeat to the Portland Timbers followed a week later by a 0-0 stalemate against DC United means the ‘Caps have only earned 1 out of a possible 6 points […]
Despite scoring three goals against the run of play, standout performances from striker Chris Wondolowski and goalkeeper John Busch, and a characteristically shaky display from the Portland Timbers (8-8-11) defense, the Quakes (6-10-9) suffer confusion after a questionable substitution by Mark Watson late in the match and allow the Timbers to equalize.
A weekend without a Sounders game. It just ain’t right. The Major League Soccer schedule can be a confounding thing, even for a team that doesn’t face the rigors of the CONCACAF Champions League this season.
The New York Red Bulls (7-8-10), defending Supporter Shield champs, host the defending MLS Cup champions Sporting KC (12-9-6) at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night on NBS Sports. Both clubs seem to have hit a downward spiral, with the Red Bulls losing two of their last three matches and SKC on a three game […]
Never mind the fact that two of the West’s top squads tonight will draw swords. Disregard the tight proximity of Dallas and Salt Lake on the table. Forget that these are two of the better footballing teams in MLS. Tonight’s match at Rio Tinto is all about the previous joust in Frisco.
