Lets put this in the friendliest of terms, there is no amistoso when it comes to these two countries, on the pitch. At the MetLife Stadium, 80,000 + fans many of them who had lubed up with plenty of beer and bbq in the hundreds of tailgating parties dotting the parking lots were treated to a brilliant exposition of attacking football.

Devastation was in the air at PPL Park.

A silence came over the crowd as they witnessed, in horror, the ball enter the back of the Philadelphia Union's net, transitioning their thoughts from three points to only one in the matter of seconds.

Keon Daniel's mistake, one in a long line of problems the Trinidad and Tobago international has had during his defense of corner kicks this year, gave the Impact a lifeline to leave Philadelphia with a point.

It's a splashy hire, but anything but a secure it's somewhat analogous perhaps to when Rick Pitino went pro after many years at the helm at Kentucky (or even Providence for that matter).

BRIDGEVIEW, IL.- Fans at Toyota Park were treated to plenty of goal-scoring action early and often in Saturday night's Chicago Fire-New England Revolution, with three goals coming in the first 15 minutes of the match. 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.

I was ready to let Saturday go. I really was. The breaks are the breaks. Head referee Chris Penso called for 5 minutes of extra time in this past weekend's Chicago Fire vs. San Jose Earthquakes game but Chris Lenhart was able to score a goal in the 98th minute of play anyway. I'm sure somewhere down the line the Chicago Fire will benefit from a time keeping error (perhaps this was even cosmic payback for a mistake in the past).

Reading all the vitriol about Gavin Wilkinson over the last few days you'd be forgiven for forgetting the Timbers' first game under the new interim coach was just two weeks ago. It might be more comforting, I suppose, for a Timbers fan to convince him/herself that it has been three or four weeks, considering the eleven goals the Boys in Green have leaked with Wilkinson at the helm.
