10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 12

Here are the 10 things we learned from gameweek 12 of the Major League Soccer season.

1. Congratulations to Chris Wondolowski

The wait for Wondo's 100th MLS goal wasn't a long one. Eight days after heading in 99 at Avaya Stadium, the San Jose Earthquakes striker hit the century mark at Levi's Stadium by converting a penalty with a mix of aplomb and ferocity that can only be described as admirable.

Let me start out by thanking the MLS scheduling "computer" for assigning such wonderful start times for our regional rivalry with the Columbus Crew!

The Last Word on D.C. United 2-0 Columbus Crew: Tackling A Trope

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

In which we have a minor off topic rant.

D.C. United put together a convincing effort in last week's win over the Vancouver Whitecaps and facing a Columbus Crew SC team who was white hot offensively, there could be some excusing of their performance this week that they could lose. Nevertheless, last week's impressive performance was followed by an equally impressive win over the Crew, and another clean sheet for a team who is back where they belong, not only (tied for) first place but also (tied for) giving up the second fewest goals in Major League Soccer at this point.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Jermaine Jones made his 2015 debut for the Revolution, but it wasn't enough for the hosts to get maximum points in Saturday's 0-0 draw to the Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium.

Jones, who last suited up for the locals during the 2014 MLS Cup final last December, went started and went 45 minutes before he was spelled by Andy Dorman at the half.

Jones makes his return: Even if it was only for 45 minutes — and his teammates, by the way, wished it was more — Jones made his very noticeable 2015 debut.

The biggest storyline surrounding Saturday's Revolution-Crew match was, without question, the 2015 debut of Jermaine Jones. But there was something much more compelling taking place at Gillette Stadium while no. 13 was roaming the pitch.

Among the 13,092 in attendance for Saturday's match was none other than former Revolution captain Joey Franchino.

New England Poor In Draw With Columbus Crew

Soccer Tickets Online at related • 0 views

The New England and the Columbus Crew drew 0-0 in front of 13,092 fans on a sunny but windy afternoon at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

With gusts of over 30 miles an hour it was difficult for both sides to string more than a couple of passes together and that contributed to a very scrappy game that was devoid of any real goal scoring chances.

This time the shoe is on the other foot. It was the Columbus Crew's turn to collapse under late game pressure and surrender a two goal lead. In similar fashion to the Fire's demoralizing late-game stumble last weekend a stoppage time goal left the equalizing team with a bit of a false sense of accomplishment.
