SAN JOSE MLS teams don't often appoint a former English Premier League executive as their team's new president. The Premier League is a league with lavish spending that boasts the illusion of unlimited cash, far different to tight salary cap restrains in America.

For the San Jose Earthquakes, appointing Tom Fox as successor to Dave Kaval's seven-year tenure as president comes at a time when the club is set open their pockets for the summer transfer window.

Well, the Timbers have their first true faceplant of 2017.

On Saturday in San Jose, the Timbers were tactically confused, flat-footed, and ultimately fatally shorthanded as the Earthquakes handed the Timbers their worst loss of the season.

Bad losses happen, especially on the road, and especially especially when a team is playing without two of its most important players.

The fickle sports gods decided to frustrate me this week. Yes, a point in San Jose via a 1-1 tie might be considered an acceptable outcome, but man, something about the Earthquakes-Sounders games really drives me crazy. It's not just the results, which have been frustratingly in favor of the California team, but also the game flow – or lack thereof.

Take advantage of possession

It is a Seattle strength and San Jose weakness. Most of Seattle's possession is in the central third, but recently they've been better at penetrating the final third. The 'Quakes are a team that counters well, so turnovers in the central third will be dangerous.

The Union offense struggled against San Jose and showed it needs help

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

The opportunity lost against the Earthquakes falls squarely on the offense.

The Union defense failed to hold a late lead against the San Jose Earthquakes despite a one-man advantage but the blame should not rest on the young unit. Certainly the one-on-one defending of Warren Creavalle and Josh Yaro left a lot to be desired as did Keegan Rosenberry's statue-esque reaction on the goal, but the Union offense was even more anemic throughout the match and needs a good look in the mirror, or at least a shot chart.

The loss is the 16th straight winless trip Kansas City has made to San Jose since the year 2000, this time it was a Chris Wondolowski goal that was the only difference in the game, but it certainly wasn't the only talking point as a seemingly clear penalty kick was missed at the opposite end of the field minutes before Wondolowski's goal from the spot.

If Seattle wins out they finish 6th at worst. Winning out isn't likely, but destiny is still in the Sounders hands (or feet).

Seattle drew in San Jose in a match that did less to improve the Sounders chances as it did to hurt San Jose's to get into the playoffs. While Portland and Vancouver each picked up wins, the majority of teams drew and left the door open for the Sounders.
