The New Era: Part 2

Forget about next season and forget about the continued uncertainty surrounding Chivas USA. Opening day for this club is, and always has been, a huge deal. Every year it begs the question of can they turn around their fortunes? Can they banish the nightmares of the previous year? With the sale of the club imminent, […]


Chivas USA 2014 Season Preview

I have had the pleasure of writing for Total-MLS for three seasons now, but I would imagine if you looked back at my previous season previews they would look very similar. I probably copy and pasted the phrase “Thank the Lord, Dan Kennedy is still with the team!” on several occasions. As for the rest […]

Adios Chivas USA

Just before 1pm this afternoon I sat down to write my Chivas USA preview for Total-MLS confused as to how I was going to approach another year of being a fan. Major League Soccer just made it a whole lot easier…it will be my last.   The news that every single Chivas USA fan has […]

Chivas USA: Last, But Not Least

Chivas USA are currently rock bottom of the Western Conference, and with 12 points separating them from 8th placed San Jose Earthquakes, it is likely that is where they will finish the season. It has got to that stage of the season where the phrase “playing for pride” is used and lot and like it […]

Chivas USA Fail to Start September with a Win

With summer ending and September starting, Chivas USA have found themselves on the road for the first two games of the new month.

Goats Not Good Enough Against Galaxy

Chivas USA have not won a Major League Soccer game since March 30th and the SuperClasico on Sunday did not spell the end of their horrendous winless run.

In Chelis We Trusted

On May 29th 2013 Chivas USA announced that they had agreed to part ways with Head Coach José Luis Sánchez Solá or “Chelís”, after just 3 months in charge of the Rojiblancos. The press release stated that is was due to the team’s poor performance on the field. That was just over one week ago, and […]

Could the DK PK Revive Chivas USA?

(Editor's Note: This article was written prior to the firing of Jose Luis Sanchez Sola) Tuesday night Chivas USA won a game for the first time since the 30th of March.

What’s Going on with Chivas USA?

Last night news broke that Chivas USA could be on its last legs. Rumours surfaced that the club was about to be sold to either Carlos Slim or back to MLS and in both cases the future did not look good for the Goats. They are of course still rumours, however in either scenario there […]

No Passion or Points in Portland

After being humbled by Sporting Kansas City last week, Chivas USA went back on the road to try and redeem themselves on Saturday with a match against the Portland Timbers. Hopes were once high amongst the support that this would be the type of game that Chivas could take all three points from, and mount […]

Chivas USA End a Difficult Month on a High

After a blistering and unexpected start to their 2013 season, Chivas USA were suffering from a minor setback during April when they failed to score or pick up any points. However in their last game of this difficult month, they ended it the way their season started – with an entertaining and very encouraging performance…and […]

Chivas USA’s Great Start Begins to Stutter

Chivas USA have now lost two games in a row. Last week they lost at home to the Colorado Rapids, and they followed that up with another 1-0 defeat on Saturday, this time away to Real Salt Lake. They have now missed out on six points and dropped to fifth in the Western Conference. But […]
