Monday Morning Center Back

It was a scant weekend for MLS fans. Me? I was okay with that. Friday United States 0 – Guatemala 2 (Morales 7′, Ruiz 15′) Enough has been written about this. Let me just say one thing: Mix Diskerud at…

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…

And now for phase 2…

We are coming to the end of the first phase of Tucson’s preseason. San Jose, Houston, Vancouver and Portland are all closing out their stays with scrimmages tomorrow. Kansas City ended with a match against FC Tucson today, and New…

PDL Players Picked Up Yesterday

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…
