In what will likely be his final appearance on the field in Colorado, Landon Donovan created yet another special moment.

The 32-year old forward netted the go-ahead goal Wednesday in the 80th minute, capping off a two-goal comeback that saw the LA Galaxy top the Colorado Rapids, 4-3, at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.

How much fun was that? All the fun, right? Here's hoping that Waterhouse F.C. (already in town at the Lanham Days Inn, so sayeth their twitter account) gets to experience some of that fun firsthand.

Taylor Kemp assists on two goals as D.C. beats Colorado 4-2.

After a midweek vote of confidence by Ben Olsen, the outside back helps on two goals in a key victory over Colorado.

On a muggy Sunday night in front of 12,814 at RFK Stadium, the question coming into the game was whether Taylor Kemp could handle the attack that would likely be thrown his way after two semi-shaky outings at the Houston Dynamo and Real Salt Lake.

D.C. United Scouting Report: Colorado Rapids

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

D.C. United faces a Colorado Rapids side that has played several formations, rotated a lot of players through their lineup, and has given those players many different roles. However, the same flaws keep popping up, and United may well be poised to take advantage.

Every season in MLS, there's going to be one team that is very difficult to write these scouting reports about.

As well all expected, MLS has suspended Eddie Johnson for two matches.

Ben Olsen expected, we expected it, and I assume that Eddie Johnson must have expected it too. However, MLS today officially announced that Eddie Johnson has been suspended for two league games for kicking the ball at Carlos Salcedo, who was on the ground at the time (Violent conduct now carries an automatic two game suspension).

With Chris Korb out, will Taylor Kemp start on Sunday?

When D.C. United takes on the Colorado Rapids this Sunday, they will do so without the services of left back Chris Korb. The most obvious replacement for Chris Korb, and also the most likely replacement, is Taylor Kemp. Kemp started against the Houston Dynamo and was not very good; however, he has started less than 7 games at left back in his entire MLS career.

Landon Donovan and the LA Galaxy are in town tomorrow night. This will be (barring a miracle playoff matchup) Landon's last game in Colorado. Well, unless he pulls a Farve which I expect him to do. I'm really hoping the Rapids aren't going to play the Denver Broncos to LA's Seattle Seahawks.

The good news is that they play their first CONCACAF Champions League game on Wednesday so they'll have to balance that with their game against Colorado.

Keep Calm And Wait For 2015

View From The Couch at related • 1 view

Once again the Rapids gave up a goal in the first 15 minutes due to a stupid mistake. Once again they were forced to chase the game. Once again they were burned for more goals while chasing the game. Once again they lost.

If this sounds familiar its because its the fourth straight game that's looked this way.

I've Got Nothing

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Just like the FSL game last week, we could recycle the game review from the New England game by changing the name and it would be fairly accurate. Two goals (including a stupid PK foul from Wynne) in 12 minutes meant the Rapids had to chase the game again, exactly what they couldn't afford to do. Again we saw an inability to break down the defense and the attack left them open for Dallas to get a 3rd early into the 2nd half.

I'm going to dispense with the actual game review as A. the game stunk and that's all that really needs to be said and B. the aftermath says more about what's going on with the Rapids than the game itself.

In his post game interview Pablo Mastroeni had a number of alarming comments. Two in particular that stood out:
"I'm not worried about the trophy, the Rocky Mountain Cup," Rapids head coach Pablo Mastroeni said after the loss.

Well, That Sucked

As expected the Rapids looked listless on short rest. What wasn't expected was how much of an egg they laid. No passion, sloppy defense, invisible offense, and zero points. Really a sad effort from Colorado but not a shock given their track record in short-rest games this season.
My strategic consideration was punting on this game.
