Three draws in three games seems worse than it is for the Timbers. Sure, they should have taken all three points from the Galaxy and it was tough to see Nick Rimando torched by Denmark, but Portland hasn’t looked that bad so far. Their makeshift midfield has shutdown their opponents far better than I expected, […]
A bye week is supposed to bring rest, relaxation, recovery, and resolve. But, this past bye week for the Seattle Sounders has been anything but those things. The Sounders were already expecting to miss Clint Dempsey & Marco Pappa to international duty, but they weren’t expecting Deuce to pull his hamstring just hours after he […]
Clint Dempsey. Blas Perez. Out. Kyle Bekker, body slam connoisseur and professional retribution artist, out. You at least wanted to see if he’d try again, right?
The New York Red Bulls (1-0-1) head to Ohio to take on Crew SC (1-1-0) in an early Eastern Conference marquee matchup. The Red Bulls and Crew have had similar results in their opening two games of the 2015 MLS campaign. The Red Bulls started out n the road to Sporting KC and was able […]
The fourth week of Major League Soccer action is around the corner with all 20 teams competing in 10 matches. I scored 4 out of 8 in round 3 so my batting average is still .500. I’ll take it! Let’s see what week 4 has in store. Here are my predictions for this weekend’s action: […]
You guys submitted some great questions this week, with topics ranging from captain picks to the effects of international call-ups. My team, Sad Sack FC, is hoping for a repeat of Round 3, where I vaulted nearly 2,500 ranks and put myself back in the hunt for the prizes. Let’s see where you all are at, shall […]
The first week of the USL season saw six teams kickoff their respective seasons. By the end of Week 2, every team will have participated in at least one game. This second week provides a heavy slate of rivalry matches for your viewing pleasure. Let’s take a look into our Game of the Week before […]
If you have been following the ongoing saga of David Beckham and his quest to place an MLS team back in Miami, Florida, you are well aware of the struggles that he has encountered. Stadium proposals being turned down. Government officials playing hardball, and little momentum has been gained since his public rally last year. […]
Week 1 is done and dusted for the USL. Charleston grabbed a dramatic late winner, while the Sounders took advantage of an injury-riddled Sacramento. In our game of the week, well, sparks didn’t exactly fly.
New England Revolution v Montreal Impact – 14,189 Philadelphia Union v FC Dallas – 16,031 Colorado Rapids v New York City FC – 17,692 Orlando City SC v Vancouver Whitecaps – 31,072 Sporting Kansas City v Portland Timbers – 20,848 LA Galaxy v Houston Dynamo – 19,087 New York Red Bulls v DC United – […]
The Portland Timbers have started their 2015 campaign in much the same way as 2014 with two draws at home. Despite the disappointing results, draws against RSL and LAG shouldn’t have anyone calling to blow things up just yet. Nagbe looks dangerous as ever and Adi should be hungry for more coming off a brace […]
Sporting Kansas City goes into this weekend in a bit of a rough patch to start the season. They drew the New York Red Bulls 1-1 after the Red Bulls scored to equalize three minutes after SKC scored. Then Sporting was on the unfortumate end of an egregious offside call in a 3-1 pounding by […]
It feels like it’s been months since DC United beat the Montreal Impact 1-0 in their MLS home opener. Their subsequent break from MLS play was intended to give them the rest necessary to compete in the Concacaf Champions League semifinals, for which they failed to qualify. DC United fans, myself included, are itching to […]
The third week of the Major League Soccer season is upon us with 16 teams competing in 8 matches. For those keeping track at home, my week 2 predictions were an improvement over week 1 as I scored 4 out of 8. Woo hoo! Let’s see what week 3 has in store. Here are my […]
It’s finally here, First Kick 2015! The first game up is Charleston Battery against Toronto FC II, but let’s take a look at our Game of the Week first: LA Galaxy II versus Real Monarchs.
