Monday Morning Centerback

I went crazy with the footy watching this weekend, but I’ll only do one entry this week. Sunday Colorado Rapids 0 – Seattle Sounders FC 1 So, after years of Sigi Schmid tried to get the Sounders to an MLS…

Revs Righted?

I gave Jose Bosch grief after he put out a press release extolling a two game winning streak from Arizona United. Two games is not a streak, but an “in a row.” Three? Three is a streak. I don’t want…

DDC Wrap Up

There was some chatter in the Tweetshpere that the lack of MLS badges on Montréal’s uniforms in the CCL match last week were some sort of coded protest over CBA negotiations. Seemed to me a stretch. Closing myself off to…

“People are out there earning jobs. There is nothing friendly about possibly being out of a job in 90 minutes.” – Colorado Rapids Coach Pablo Mastroeni on preseason friendlies

PDL Players Picked Up Yesterday

Thanks to Nicholas Murray, who sent me this complete list of PDL players who were picked yesterday. Note that any PDL experience was noted by Murray (that’s why some have multiple teams). I put teams in bold if the player…

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…
