Champions League is done, the Supporter’s Shield is long gone, the US Open Cup resulted in nothing, now all that’s left is a single shot at making the 2014 MLS playoffs. The Portland Timbers need a win tonight in Texas against FC Dallas. Unfortunately, a win alone isn’t good enough to put Portland into the fifth […]
Win and they are in. That is what Vancouver Whitecap players have been saying all week. As we head into the last weekend of the 2014 MLS regular season, 9 of the 10 MLS playoff spots have been claimed. Out West, the final spot will go to either the Whitecaps or their expansion cousins the […]
Sitting one point out of the third spot in the West, Real Salt Lake came into its season finale against Chivas USA on Wednesday with a sense of urgency. Having fallen twice to the lowly Goats twice on the season, RSL needed to secure maximum points before heading into the MLS postseason in the hopes of […]
The End is Near: The final playoff spot in the East was settled this week, with the USA’s own Michael Bradley and Toronto FC just narrowly missing out on the post-season. Instead, it was Columbus who managed to extend their season with a statement win against the New York Red Bulls, trouncing last year’s Supporter’s […]
Tonight the Whitecaps will travel to San Jose to take on a beaten and battered San Jose Earthquakes. San Jose are coming off a double header against the Portland Timbers during which they gave up a one goal lead to lose 2-1 at home before getting hammered 3-0 in Portland. The Whitecaps have been experiencing […]
Tonight it’s Real Salt Lake at home. The Timbers have only defeated RSL a single time and in that match there was no Nick Rimando. If Portland wants into the playoffs, they likely have to get three points from the West’s third place club.
The New England Revolution’s 2-1 victory over the Houston Dynamo on Thursday followed a familiar script as Lee Nguyen offered two goals to help his team secure a top-three spot in the Eastern Conference standings. The Revs, who could still finish as high as first, will definitively avoid the playoff play-in game, an important goal set […]
In a cold, rainy night in Kansas City, a night where a city is watching the Kansas City Royals beat the Baltimore Orioles in the ALCS, a night where Landon Donovan is playing his last game as a member of the US National Team and a night where the Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps are […]
The guys talk about the Garber v Jurgen feud, Michael Bradley’s play, Dom Kinnear moving to San Jose, the Red Bulls busy offseason, and the beauty of MLS 1.0 and the old shootouts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sfs9IztV3RM&feature=youtu.be
With yesterday’s loss at home to DC United, the Dynamo were officially eliminated from making the playoffs. This marks just the second time in the franchise’s nine year history that the team failed to make the postseason. The window for this team has come and gone. Head coach Dominic Kinnear is likely headed back to San Jose and […]
It was a make or break week for several MLS sides, with a number of playoff spots still available for the taking. Five teams were able to capitalize and clinch a playoff berth – the New England Revolution, the New York Red Bulls, and Sporting Kansas City in the East and FC Dallas and Real […]
The year was 2009. It was a rainy night in New Jersey. All that was needed was a point on the last day of the season. There was no Thierry Henry. No Bradley Wright-Phillips. No Red Bull Arena.
Tonight will mark the final clash between Cascadia teams during the 2014 regular season. The winner will lift the Cascadia Cup.
Tonight is the second meeting in four days for the Portland Timbers and the San Jose Earthquakes. Last Saturday Rodney Wallace led his club to a 2-1 win thanks to two deflected goals. They weren’t particularly pretty, but points are points and each one matters with the MLS regular season coming to a close. Having ended […]
Well. I guess that wasn’t totally unexpected. After stringing together back to back wins against Chivas and Portland, the Reds headed into last Saturdays match against the seemingly invincible Galaxy in Carson, California, hoping to get something out of the match besides a lopsided beating. Unfortunately it was a beating that they got nonetheless.
