His hand forced by injuries, Earthquakes head coach Mark Watson is finally playing the promising young players that until now have warmed the bench for the San Jose Earthquakes. After an energetic and creative display that earned a draw in Seattle, the Quakes (6-10-7) and 19 year-old phenom Tommy Thompson were unable to build on […]
The guys discuss the Jermaine Jones signing, come up with ideas for MLS to better announce blind draws, and discuss the playoff picture in both conferences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vT1r2CjCZGM
With just eight points from their last twelve games and just four points on the road all season, it looks like the Houston Dynamo are going to miss the playoffs for only the second time in their franchise history. 2014 has been an extremely frustrating season for Dynamo fans but could it have been better? […]
But can FCD keep up the pace? A landmark win propelled FC Dallas Friday night to second place in the Western Conference. Vanquished at the feet of a ten-man FCD squad was Real Salt Lake. To add insult to injury, RSL’s six game unbeaten run was ended by a Dallas side who is now unbeaten […]
The Crew managed a resounding victory at home on Saturday night against the Houston Dynamo. It was the 2nd straight emphatic home victory for the Crew, and this great run of form looks to be coming at the perfect time for the Crew’s playoff push.
Which team should we expect to show up as the regular season segues into the playoffs?
Sporting Kansas City came into this DC United game looking extremely tired. They had games against Toronto (won 4-1) and in Nicaragua against Real Esteli (draw 1-1) in Champions League play. DC also had Champions League play but they were in DC and played against a weaker team so they weren’t worried about playing the […]
It was a good weekend for the New England Revolution as they followed Saturday’s 1-0 win over Chivas USA with the news that Jermaine Jones will soon be joining the team. The victory came courtesy of a Lee Nguyen goal in the 56th minute. The play was initiated by Kelyn Rowe, who played a give-and-go […]
The Whitecaps (7-4-12) shall continue their California road trip this weekend when they visit the StubHub center to battle the LA Galaxy (10-5-7). Last week the Whitecaps were lackluster against Chivas USA and were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw.
We will know in six weeks. Frankly, if Oscar Pareja can conjure offensive magic over the next month and a half, FCD could be sitting high and mighty atop the Western Conference.
The guys discuss CONCACAF Champions League, happiness in Dallas, sadness in Colorado, and all kinds of random side discussions break out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceAOADv7eBk
Tuesday has been avenged. Goals that seemed so difficult to find in the USOC semifinal were plucked effortlessly from Buck Shaw as FCD throttled San Jose. With two wins already against Pareja in 2014, San Jose could be painted as 2014′s bogey team. But five goals, three coming from Tesho Akindele and two from Fabian […]
The Portland Timbers are a long way from home right now. 4,656 miles as the crow (not the chartered jet) flies, to be exact. They took a ten hour plus flight from Boston, MA following a 1-1 draw with the New England Revolution to take on Guyana’s Alpha United in the CONCACAF Champions League’s Group Stage.
Sunday night, after D.C. United finished kicking the Colorado Rapids all over RFK Stadium, I decided to pause and take a look at the Supporters’ Shield race as it currently stands. Needless to say, it’s about as close as you can ask for, with six teams within striking distance of MLS’s regular season crown. I […]
For the second straight game the New England Revolution dropped points despite scoring an early goal. On Saturday, Charlie Davies’ first half strike was equaled by Liam Ridgewell’s first ever MLS goal. The game ultimately ended 1-1, meaning that the Revs and Timbers would share the spoils. The first shot of the game occurred after […]
