Sometimes, this part of the report is written before a match in a vain attempt to build towards some kind of atmosphere, as someone who's reliving the "match-day experience" or whatever that could possibly mean in MLS(E) land. But tonight, there will be no pre-match set-up beyond the following : Toronto mediocre, everyone else better, wonder how the hell a team six seasons on is still this crap.

This is the LAST team to get a mock-up logo. Its been bad luck, really.

Overcast Saturday afternoon. Fresh, yet not cold. Props to the scheduling gods for picking a kickoff closer to the train schedules. Don't have to wait an hour before the match, won't have to wait 45 mins after it.

Chicago is 1-1-2 and Toronto has neither earned a point nor scored a goal at home.

So here we are, for the seventh season in a row and despite a magnificent effort against Milan, we will not be collecting any trophies, medals, or even pots to urinate in. In fact, the season could turn even uglier if we fail to secure top four and our friends down the Road finish above us and lift the FA Cup.

Manchester City 1 – 0 Arsenal: Match report and player ratings

Since our painful, last visit to Manchester a few months ago, Arsenal have made tremendous progress. In fact, the club achieved such a fantastic transformation since the late arrival of experienced, quality players like Arteta, Mertesacker, and Santos that most of us were confident we could get something out of our game against the other club from Manchester today.

Hey Arsène, how many big pots are we going to win this season?

Why we need to stick to the Wenger Revolution

(And why it is necessary to keep reminding us of this)

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

Even Damien Duff can't believe what he saw. No sneaky handballs. No dodgy refereeing decisions. Just delicious, organic, line-caught wild Alaskan qualification.

Thanks to their stonking 4-0 first-leg victory in Talinn, the Republic of Ireland breezed their way unencumbered past Estonia with a 1-1 draw in the return-leg in Dublin last night enough to see Ireland emerge from the play-offs with a 5-1 aggregate winning margin and a spot in the pots for Euro 2012 safely tucked under their belts.

Keep This Man Away From Old Trafford

When the trademarked Special One was at Chelsea, I was an advocate of him. No doubt he brought something interesting to the table that other foreign managers simply don't. Wenger, Benitez and the rest are generally as dull as dishwater. And as much as we already had cause to dislike him for his hop, skip and a jump down the Old Trafford touchline after being robbed by his lucky Porto side, there was always that respect factor for a man that was achieving trophy hauls in what appeared to be a new manner.
