Soccer Tickets Online at related • 0 views

The MLS Team Of Week has four members of the Colorado Rapids, after they took apart FC Dallas 4-0 last Friday. Interestingly, the starting XI from whoscored.com, includes players from only four teams, the Rapids, Red Bulls, Houston Dynamo and LA Galaxy.

It is not often that Player of the Week honors goes to a goalkeeper in a winning cause, but that is the case with Galaxy goalkeeper Jaime Penedo who was brilliant in LA's 1-0 win over the Seattle Sounders at the weekend.

FC Dallas stays atop MLS despite red card and draw against Seattle Sounders

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Saturday night in Frisco, Texas marked the first meeting between FC Dallas and Seattle Sounders FC since the teams' intense two-legged clash in the 2014 Western Conference Semifinals. The 1-1 aggregate score last November saw Dallas eliminated and Seattle advance via the away goals rule. Last night the teams picked up where they left off, drawing 0-0 in a scrappy match, though the story at kickoff was dominated by the number of key players missing from both sides due to injury or international duty.

1. A Little Joy For NYCFC

NYCFC's rollout was rough. It ranged from brutally mismanaged to the deliberately misleadingin the signing of Frank Lampard. The team still doesn't have a stadium plan, the New York Yankees are moaning about their use of Yankee Stadium, and what became painfully obvious over the last year was that MLS saw Manchester City's money, saw the New York City location, and rushed a franchise to debut before it was ready.

Seattle beat the Revs 3-0 quite convincingly Sunday, but I'll lay odds this score was a result of which team had their big guns playing.

The Revs certainly didn't have two of theirs, with both Jermaine Jones and Lee Nguyen sidelined by injuries.

It's safe to say that Sunday's sound defeat at CenturyLink Field wasn't the kind of homecoming that Revolution players and Federal Way, Wash. natives Sean Okoli and Kelyn Rowe had in mind leading up to the contest.

For Rowe, whose last appearance in Seattle as a member of the visiting side came in 2013, the return was a mixed bag for him personally.

The final score may not suggest it, but there was a moment in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Sounders in which the Revolution uncovered a tantalizing opportunity to make it contest.

Despite going down early following a Clint Dempsey strike from the spot, the locals nearly put the match back in level terms right before half.

Jay Heaps' initial thoughts on the Revolution's 3-0 loss to the Sounders were short and straight to the point about Sunday. And with good reason.

After watching the two-headed beast of Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins take control and never let go, there was little doubt on how the match would play out against the reigning Supporters' Shield winners.

After much anticipation the New England Revolution opened their 2015 MLS season with a 3-0 defeat at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on Sunday night.

Playing just over three months after losing in the MLS Cup 2014, New England looked a shadow of the side that lost to LA. Without AJ Soares (departure) and Jermain Jones (injury) the Revs had a softness at the back thatClint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins were more than happy to take advantage of.

As a native of Federal Way, Wash., Sunday's Sounders-Revolution tilt will certainly be special for Revolution midfielder Kelyn Rowe. But the way he tells it, one of his teammates may be even more excited for it.

Midfielder/forward Sean Okoli was acquired by Revolution from the Sounders in January, only weeks after his option was declined.

A stoppage time Charlie Davies penalty kick goal gave the New England Revolution a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday in Tucson, Ariz., in the final group game of the Desert Diamond Cup preseason tournament. Seattle took the lead through Kenny Cooper in just the fourth minute, but New England would equalize on an early second half own goal and then found the winner in stoppage time through Davies, despite playing down a man after Tyler Rudy saw a 60th minute red card.

Charlie Davies grabbed the winner from the spot for a short-handed Revolution, who claimed a 2-1 victory over the Sounders in a match that featured a pair of curious refereeing decisions.

Here are some quick thoughts on the penultimate preseason match for the Revolution:

-It was something of a surprise to see Revolution coach Jay Heaps use a lineup packed with regulars against the same opponent they'll face again in 11 days and with points on the line.

Improvement is always the primary focus during the preseason, but the Revolution will also be careful to avoid revealing too much against the Seattle Sounders during Wednesday's Desert Diamond Cup clash at Kino North Grandstand in Tucson, Ariz.

Wednesday's clash comes 11 days before the squads meet for First Kick on Mar.
