Week 31 Recap - That’s all she wrote

The Offside - MLS at related • 3 views
What a weekend. It was quite fun, that's for sure. Sorry that the recap is so late - I was stuck in Maryland thanks to the weather. I guess. That aside, the regular season is now behind us. If I get the chance to write up a playoff preview, look for it tomorrow or Thursday. There's [...]

Week 31 Preview - The Final Countdown

So I thought of this excellent title so I could simply link to the video of this great song. But it is also the last weekend of the season, with four teams in the hunt for two spot. With last week's result, the Kansas City Wizards are in, and the Red Bull are in need [...]

Week 31 Primetime Preview

Chicago v New York This is it. This is what they play for since the start of the season, all the way back in March/April. If you remember that. Tonight, the first of a few very important games take place, as Juan Carlos Osorio returns to his old stomping grounds to visit the Fire, with the [...]

Week 30 Recap - Four Out, Some Remain

The Offside - MLS at related • 0 views
The second to last weekend finally saw teams knocked out for good. Done and dusted, dead and buried were the campaigns of Dallas, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Toronto. No playoffs means no playing in November, and no shot at the MLS Cup. To satiate those Beckham die-hards, it means he's on his way to [.

And no, I don't mean the TV Show. We're not heading down to the inner city of Baltimore and combating the drug problem. Rather, it's the huge games this weekend that will go a long way in determining what three teams are playing late into October, and what teams are home, getting ready for next [...]

DC United v New England It's a huge game tonight for DC, who scrapped by for a point last week against Houston. This week's task is a bit easier, playing at home and against a New England team who will be missing one of their most important players in Steve Ralston. That combined with their status [.

Week 29 Recap - Muddling up the Playoff Picture

The Offside - MLS at related • 0 views
Here we go again. Another weekend, and no one wants to throw in the towel. Of the three playoff spots up for grabs, all nine remaining teams are theoretically alive and well - although some in a better place than others. Whether it was a stunning shot from the likes of Brandon McDonald, or some [...]

Week 29 Preview - Again with the Internationals

The Offside - MLS at related • 2 views
I don't have time for a lengthy preview - heading to DC for the day prior to the USA/Cuba WCQ. Once again this weekend a number of MLS sides must go out with a weaker squad thanks to the scheduling conflict that doesn't need to be covered again. A number of teams will be without [...]

Real Salt Lake v New York Red Bull Let's welcome Rio Tinto to the league. Tonight's match features the seventh soccer specific stadium to open in the MLS. From pictures that you can see here, it's an absolute beauty, and from what I've been hearing, perhaps a number of sell out crowds will be in store [.

Week 28 Recap - Anyone want the playoffs?

The Offside - MLS at related • 0 views
Who do you pick now to make the playoffs? With a handful of games remaining there are now three teams who have assured themselves of a playoff berth - New England, Houston, and Columbus, one team that hasn't been there in awhile, two that have been there time and time again. Who's next? That's a [...

It's an exciting time of year. As the crisp autumn weather cools most places around the country, the playoff race is heating up. Teams are fighting for their postseason lives, anxious to be one of the eight to have a shot at the MLS Cup. It has been well documented here that Columbus is the [...]

FC Dallas v San Jose A quick preview, as the game starts in 26 minutes or so. Another important match up for these two, with both squads in the lower half of the Western Conference. A win for either side puts them right back into the thick of things because of the conditions out West. Big [...]
