So, What Have We Learned?

Okay, this is a delayed post about this year’s Desert Diamond Cup. I’ve been busy, and so have you. At least you should have been. First off, turnout. Yeah, not fantastic, especially when compared to 2011 and 2012. In 2011,…

Lots-o-Goals

Andres Cantor is probably glad that he doesn’t cover Major League Soccer games anymore. He would have had to use a lot of Cepacol. Three games this weekend featured at least four goals by the winning team. Two were absolute…

New York 4 – DCU 0

Geez, really? I thought DC United was supposed to be good. The oddest stat is that as of the end of the game, Thierry Henry has gone 709 game minutes without getting fouled. What is up with that? Are people…
