The Bent Musket at related • 0 views

Doesn't it feel great to wake up Monday morning and have it be the day after a win? Especially a comprehensive, dominant victory over a team from New York? The New England Revolution put in a classic performance to crush the Red Bulls, although poor finishing kept it from being the rout it probably should have been.

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

There are only four days left until the 2012 MLS SuperDraft gets underway. It will be televised on ESPN 2 and 3 at 9a or Noon if you happen to be on the East Coast. The next few days will be crucial for draft hopefuls as it's a time when their stock can rise or take a trip to the garbage pit.

In a interesting turn the Guardian over in the UK, decided to let the supporter groups for all 19 MLS sides do the heavy lifting when it comes to this years SuperDraft.

Horrific Tragedy Bootstrapped to Champions League Recap

This past weekend, a German referee attempted to commit suicide. CNN reported on this tragedy, and also managed to sneak in the same article some game recaps. Tactful! The Guardian did one better, reporting racism charges against Luis Suarez while also letting us know that the alleged racist did not play in an international friendly due to injury.

I had hoped for help from Pusky, but he batted his cyber eyelashes and rejected my online advances in the cruelest form the unreturned email.

Not a good week to be on the losing end of the stick, then again no week is a good time to lose. But this week losing sides almost seemed nonexistent in this one. Losing teams only muster up two goals. Yes, just two goals for the losing sides this week, a big-time 17 goals [...]

Nothing like picking up a win at the right time for Marco Ferruzzi and his FC Dallas players.

But that didn't stop the home side from putting away [.

The game wasn't a domination by the Revs - but they converted on the chances they did get. Pat Noonan, who is on one hell of a run of form, and rookie Adam Cristman made sure of that. With the win, the sole possession of first in the Eastern Conference belongs to New England. The crowd looked deceivingly big on TV, but clearly it was a trick of the camera as MLSNET says only 12,000 or so were there.

The heartbreak continues for RSL and there really seems to be no end in sight. Jeff Larentowicz served as the catalyst of New England's victory - chipping in a goal and an assist. His goal was the winner. Noonan started it off, while RSL countered with Carey Talley's PK conversion. Robbie Findley was border-line non-existant - while Sturgis and Beckerman gave decent efforts.

Yes, some calls went against Argentina but in no right mind did they play well enough to get a sniff of victory. Brazil's Elano - before he had to go off due to a knock in the first half - was simply brilliant as the architect of that first goal. Vagner Love played with more passion and tenacity than every previous Copa America appearance before this.

Austria 2, United States 1

Many - after we got by Uruguay 2-1 in a rather ugly fashion - were relieved to see Austria the next team in our way. The truth is, though, Erwin "Jimmy" Hoffer and Mr. Okotie decided to spoil our show. Actually - the loss of this game was for the most part to ourselves. The first 20 minutes showed a reinvigorated American team with fluid passing all centering around Michael Bradley and moving outside to Zizzo or Rogers, back inside to Adu, with one more subsequent touch and then an opportunity.

It's becoming a ritual for the Wizards. They significantly outshoot their opponent only to find themselves on the losing end when all is said and done. Luciano Emilio took what chances he could get and made the most of them finding enough room in the penalty box and one brief deflection later, his 8th goal of the year put D.

United States 1, South Korea 1

The US U-20s started strong in Montreal but finished feebly. The Koreans outshot and outplayed the Nats for long stretches of the match and those that needed to perform, did so somewhat inadequately. Freddy Adu had several strong pushes, but never anything consistent or leading to production.

In what has become an all too familiar post exhibition game pursuit, there has been some speculation about the first and second half lineups in Saturday's 1–0 loss to Orlando City. The reason? The Union isn't releasing the lineups.

Match commentary, game recaps and early photographs confirmed that Mondragon, Okugo (apparently at right back), Califf, Valdes, Orozco Fizcal, Torres, Carrol, Nakazawa, Mapp Le Toux and Mwanga appeared in the first half.

Beasley still seemed like the hardest worker on the field - but the award for most productive certainly goes to Barry Ferguson. The Scottish captain had a Beckham like falling out with Rangers and former coach Paul Le Guen a while back. When loyalty was tested, Ferguson's was firmly with Rangers while the club had to choose between the benched star or the conflicted coach.

1. Maykel Galindo - his performance this past weekend might not have been as impressive but the Cuban striker keeps finding the back of the net, even when the seemingly sure-fire Juan Pablo Angel has cooled down a bit; Galindo's Kenny Cooper-esque goal (remember that chip from the same corner of the 18 last year) sealed the 2-0 rebound win over New England
