On Friday (September 19 , 2014) the Fort Lauderdale Strikers were purchased by three Brazilian investors Paulo Cesso, Ricardo Geromel, and Rafael Bertani. The club held a press conference where we saw the NASL commissioner making an appearance and talking about to the ownership group and about the Strikers.
On Saturday the Whitecaps hosted Real Salt Lake and the stakes could not have been higher for the home team. The playoff race for the final spot in the western conference has unofficially come down to the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Portland Timbers.
Fort Lauderdale Strikers v Tampa Bay Rowdies The last match of the Florida Derby for this years campaign is sure to be an exciting match. The Strikers are two points out of the last playoff spot and are coming off a 2-1 win against Indy Eleven. The Strikers will try to keep up their run […]
The playoffs start now for the Vancouver Whitecaps. Actually, I think they started last week in Portland but that didn’t go very well. Another humiliating 3-0 loss to one of their biggest rivals has left the Whitecaps on the edge of missing this year’s post season. This weekend the Whitecaps will host Real Salt Lake […]
The Portland Timbers head to Ontario, Canada following back-to-back shutout victories. A 3-0 rout of the Vancouver Whitecaps and 6-0 drubbing of Guyana’s Alpha United in the CONCACAF Champions League. Saturday’s early morning, 10 AM PDT match against Toronto FC is about distance. Portland’s win over Vancouver put them into the fifth playoff spot in the […]
Dominic Kinnear is the Houston Dynamo. Players have come and gone in the franchise’s 9 seasons but the head coach has remained a constant. A constant winner, having missed the playoffs in just one season. I have written about the Dynamo struggles this season and have always said that this is Kinnear’s team and he […]
Heading into Friday’s match, the New England Revolution had never won at Sporting Park and had only scored one goal. After 90 minutes, both of those stats changed as the Revs are now 1-2-2 when visiting Sporting KC after recording a 3-2 victory to capture second place in the Eastern Conference. The Revolution were rolling […]
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 […]
