CHESTER, Pa. -- They may have a new head coach, but it was the same old story in front of goal for the Philadelphia Union on Saturday night and DC United made them pay.

Chris Ponitus converted a Branko Boskovic free kick in the 78th minute and that was all DC United needed to spoil John Hackworth's first game as interim team manager of the Union, as DC went on to win the game, 1-0 in front of 18,876 fans at PPL Park.

Arsenal's visit to Liverpool this early in the season is a battle between two sides that are undergoing another rebuilding process. Arsene Wenger is still waiting for his new signings to bed in while trying to create a coping mechanism (tactical) to deal with the loss of two players who took the top spots in last season's player of the year poll.

Fulham 1-1 Chelsea - A missed opportunity - What do you think?

A Chelsea Fans Blog for Chelsea Fans at related • 0 views
Typically, Chelsea threw away the chance of fourth place with win by two clear goals tonight after being pegged back by guess who? Clint Dempsey once more after Frank Lampard scored his 150th goal for Chelsea from the penalty spot in the first half.

Maybe it was due to the conditions and because of playing twice in three days, but it was a slow and too laboured performance in my eyes tonight.

Arsenal 3 – 0 Milan: Match Thoughts And Individual Analysis

Desi Gunner at related • 4 views

There are games where even a defeat feels like a win. Then there are those where victory can't quite overcome the feeling of losing out. On a rare occasion though, one gets to experience both these contradicting sentiments at the same time! Arsenal's heroic effort against Milan will surely fall into that exceptional category.

What are your thoughts on the game?
Toronto created some chances in the second half, but I think we controlled the tempo and the rhythm for a majority of the first half. When you do that, I think you have to finish teams off, but Toronto responded very well.

Two tired teams played to a scoreless draw tonight at BBVA Compass Stadium. It's wasn't a boring match, but it won't make any highlight reels either. Simply put, the Dynamo just didn't have many ideas offensively (the Fire deserve credit for being very organized defensively). I guess we can't get too upset about a point, but not getting the full three points at home just isn't good enough for me.

That was so much better than the first leg, there's just no getting around that and it was just a terrible shame that the first leg deficit was too big to claw back last night.
