Rapids failure now complete

Colorado Soccer Now at related • 0 views

The implosion is complete.

The Colorado Rapids face a seven-game, end of the season slog in an attempt to salvage a couple of wins and a little bit of pride before the long off season.

Where those wins will come from is in doubt with the latest evidence of the team's ineffective attack coming in the form of Friday night's 1-0 loss to the Portland Timbers.

George John has experienced his fair share of setbacks in the past year. But if the FC Dallas centerback's spirits have been dampened, he isn't showing it.

Last summer, a deal that would have sent John to English side Blackburn Rovers FC fell through.

The acquisition of Andrew Wiedeman has paid immediate dividends for Toronto FC.Â

Wiedeman, sent to TFC from FC Dallas in exchange for Julian de Guzman last week, came off the bench and scored the game-winning goal Wednesday night at BMO Field, lifting TFC to a 2-1 victory over the floundering Colorado Rapids.

Attacking the Flanks: Rosales and Johansson

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

Perceptions of the Sounders have evolved significantly over the course of the season. Early in the year many people questioned whether Eddie Johnson could still score goals. Later, when it was clear that EJ found his shooting boots, there were concerns that Fredy Montero could not play alongside him.

What most people don't understand is that home field advantage isn't always about where you play. Just as often, it's about what you're playing for. And no matter where the games are played, US Open Cup matches are home matches for the Seattle Sounders, because this is their Cup. It's our Cup. Sounders players have been stomped, cut, mocked, and bruised for it.

Michael Gspurning 'Ready' As Sounders Near Full Strength

Michael Gspurning was deemed "ready" by Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid following Thursday's training. The assumption being that Gspurning is due to make his first start since May 2, allowing for the obvious caveats that anything can happen between now and then.

This is undeniably great news.

Adrian Hanauer: Big Changes Could Be Coming

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

The seven-game winless run has not gone unnoticed by Seattle Sounders leadership. I had a chance to catch up with Sounders GM Adrian Hanauer earlier this week and he made it very clear that something is going to have to change. That might be the Sounders simply playing better, but he's clearly not ready to just sit on his hands and hope that happens.

The Portland Timbers are currently in 7th place in the MLS Western Conference, just three points behind their next opponent, the Colorado Rapids. The team's win last weekend over the Seattle Sounders has given hope to fans and players alike that they have turned a corner and will now go on a winning run to surpass the losing run they just finished.

That did not go as planned. For the first time in the MLS era, the Seattle Sounders lost to the Portland Timbers. I wouldn't say the Sounders were outplayed, but I don't know that I'd say they were clearly outplayed in many of these seven games that they've failed to win.

Rather, this was a hugely frustrating continuation of an incomplete game being followed by a substandard result.

Luckily for most of those fans, the Fire came away with the edge during that flurry, as they continued their recent hot form with another victory.

Depending upon who you ask, Saturday night's 0-0 draw was either a step forward or a more of the same from an inconsistent attack. Or both. Or neither.

The Revolution were aiming for three points, but fell two short of that goal.

In November 2010, the Colorado Rapids took to a cold Toronto field and won an MLS Cup. On Wednesday night, the team took the same field with hopes of linking "playoff" and "aspirations" into a reality.

Playing in a stadium where the Rapids were 0-5-0 against the home team, Colorado saw those hopes vanish in yet another 2-1 loss.
