Second Ekstraklasa Post of the Week

Nemanja Nikolić is playing for Chicago now, but is still leading Konstantin Vassiljev and Marcin Robak in Poland’s unofficial “golden boot” race. Funny how that works. Piast vs Wisła currently a wonderful cure for insomnia — Christopher Lash (@rightbankwarsaw) March…

And another tie…

In 2014, the Chicago Fire set the MLS record for most ties in a single season with 18. My slide rule says that at the current pace, the New England Revolution is set to beat that number on July 23rd.

Monday Morning Center Back

Restoring my weekly round-up of games I found interesting this weekend, by no means an exhaustive list. Saturday WKS Zawisza Bydgoszcz 1 (Barišić 33′) – KKS Lech Poznań 0 Zawisza has had a horrible season despite winning the super cup…

Goat of the Week: Jeff Larentowicz

The mistakes on the part of the New England Revolution and León in their matches were too numerous to find one incident or one player to lay the fault on. I caught a bit of Zawisza Bydgoszcz’s match against Wisła…

Monday Morning Center Back

No, I didn’t watch the FA Cup. Not one minute of it. I’m a horrible, horrible soccer fan. So, what truly were the top matches this weekend? Friday Sedona FC 0 – LA Blues 9 Not the most auspicious start…

Aside

I saw a Tweet that said “Fire Klopas.” That’s just silly. Everyone knows that Klopas isn’t with the Fire these days.

Monday Morning Center Back

This weekend’s MLS matches will give Simon Borg plenty of material for his Instant Replay video. Other than that…how did it go? Tuesday Cruz Azul FC 0 – Deportivo Toluca 0 The first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League final…

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…

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

FC Tucson 0 – Chicago Fire 2 MOTM: Chris Rolfe Tucson’s back line pair of Kareem Smith and Travis Campbell had been broken up, with each taking turns in the back for a half. This left Smith in the back…

Tedski’s DDC Wrap Up – Day 1

Ties! And even a nil-nil one…that will convert the soccer haters and Greg Hansen. FC Tucson 1 – CD Chivas USA 1 MOTM: Kareem Smith In the last meeting between these two teams, FC Tucson’s game winner was scored by…

USL-Pro Affiliations

I’ve seen different partial lists of USL-Pro affiliations with MLS. I wrote to USL to make sure I had the complete list, and here it is: Orlando City – Sporting Kansas City Oklahoma City Energy – Sporting Kansas City Richmond…

Holiday break

Okay, I haven’t written anything in a week or so. Maybe longer. Ya know what, I know that none of you wrote anything either. So shaddap. A couple of things I saw that need my incisive commentary: The Stupidest BigSoccer…
