I’m late with my wrap-up of the weekend. Monday turned out to be more hectic than I anticipated. Who had time to read my prose anyhow? I don’t have much in the way of game wrap ups this week. I…

MLS Goal of the Week

You know when a goal keeper wants to play hero and come up for that last minute play? Even wonder what would happen if the other team got the ball before the keeper could get back? Vancouver found out what that would look like this weekend.

My Humble Season Preview

USL published a piece on PDL’s Western Conference teams this week. The piece just has short blurbs on each team, which is understandable. What you all want to know is what is going on with the newly formed Mountain Division…

Oh yeah, that

A Culture Change?

Ricardo la Volpe got fired by CD Guadalajara for “inappropriate behavior” towards a female employee. Really? This is Chivas we are talking about? This is a team that has a squadron of women on the sidelines that makes the Dallas…

Monday Morning Center Back

Yep, it’s time for my near-uninformative wrap up of the weekend’s matches. Wendnesday New York Red Bulls 4 (Wright-Philips 12′, 24′, 86′, Henry 65′) – Houston Dynamo 0 I guess I have to take back everything I said comparing Wright-Philips…

Monday morning center back

Yep…weekend is over. Get back to work, you slacker. Friday Jagiellonia Białystok 1 (Dani Quintana 83′) – GKS Piast Gliwice 1 (Matras 45′) A win would have kept Jaga out of the relegation round. The draw hasn’t yet been done…

Arizona United SC signings UPDATED

I’ve gotten a series of e-mails over the last few days from Arizona United SC about who has been signed for the team. These players, in most cases, have already been training with the squad for some time. While they…

The Bent Musket is reporting that Larry Jackson has signed with the New England Revolution. Jackson played at Santa Clara University and has occasionally played for FC Tucson, most notably in their win in November against Chivas USA. Interestingly, Jackson…

Monday Morning Center Back

I was going to do these snarky game summaries every week, but I found that I didn’t always have the time. Eh. I’m giving this feature a new name, ’cause it’s my blog and I can. As usual, MLS matches…

Tedski’s Weekend Wrap-up, Week 2

Okay, I’m including midweek CCL games, so sue me. A couple of these have two sentence summaries. I’m stretching things. Tuesday San Jose Earthquakes 1 (Gordon 90’+) – Deportivo Toluca FC 1 (Nava 67′) Apparently, Alan Gordon only needed seventeen…

Tedski’s DDC Wrap-Up, Day 3

Yes, I’ve been bad about not getting this up. Like you were checking my blog right away anyhow. CD Chivas USA 0 – Colorado Rapids 0 MOTM: Joe Nasco I give MOTM to Nasco because he seemed to get the…

Lord Nelson

If you add up all the bad decisions that Chivas USA has made over the past few years, they may have made up for them all with the hiring of Nelson Rodriguez as their president yesterday. Rodriguez’s experience with the…

Tedski’s DDC Wrap Up – Day 2
