2011 MLS

Well Vasco is back. I have been away for awhile, health issues. Well the MLS season is over and the best team money can buy in MLS won the whole darn thing. The Cup and the shield, congrats to Bruce and the gang on their victory.
Lets recap some of the 2011 season. We saw two new MLS teams, that came up from USL, Portland which started slow and came on strong, and almost made the playoffs, and Vancouver that came on weak, and got worse.

It is on the back of our Kit, on the collar. DC United the winners of twelve international and domestic trophies, four time winner of MLS cup. The once proud team from our nations capital. The team hasn't made the playoffs in two years. Now the team can't score against the bottom feeders. Two games, zero goals, six goals allowed.

Well the season has started, the Union had a bad night while the Sounders flopped around like a fish out of water. Seriously Seattle players when fouled looked like they had run into a brick wall, get a grip guys. It will back fire on you eventually. Colorado won on the road opening night for the first time ever.

Yesterday was a delayed opening day for my kids. We started at a new club that I had heard good things about, as far away as when I lived in Virginia.
So far we had one day notice on the coaches meeting, and less than two weeks before the season started. When I inquired, about this I was scolded.

Vasco is proud to Brasilian, the only country to qualify for every World Cup. Brasil over Argentina 3-1 to qualify for the 2010 World Cup.

Eight MLS games this week, and opening day for the fall youth season, if mother nature makes the rain go away.

KC at DC, DC has disappointed lately, but they take this one.

Everyone knows Vasco is no fan of David Beckham, in fact I honestly despise the man as an over hyped futboller, who has manufactured his fame rather than earn it.
He has chosen to come to the US because the money is good, and he wants to work towards a career after futbol. So he has a work ethic, so he must not be all bad.

Another bad performance in Mexico, thankfully it only happens every four years. Offense is what wins games, we have the talent, so why not use it. When will US soccer ever learn? Interesting discussion on Cirrus about youth soccer last night. Seems everyone knows what we need to do, but no one does it.
