People wondered why LD is retiring.
Others understood.
Baxty wrote on LA's 5-0 win.
Incidentally, five goals is the number Columbus needed, but didn't get, versus the New England Revs.
An LD playoff hat trick and yet this is all a paper in England could find worthy of an article?

A Different Kind of MLS Mid-Season Awards

It's that time of year again.  July heat is upon us and most MLS teams have played half (or slightly more than half) of their schedule.  International friendlies and the all-star games versus Manchester United are looming, so now is the ideal time to look back on the first half of the season and pick some of the highlights and low-lights.

Cardillo: Twellman was one of a kind

I still remember my very first Revolution game perfectly.Â

My dad parked at Honey Dew Donuts- a mile away from the stadium- just for the coffee. I was seven years old and in complete awe when we had walked far enough to see Gillette Stadium's lights shine brightly in the dusk sky. My dad bought our tickets and we made our way up the ramp into the stadium and found our seats in The Fort.

Excellent Effort on the Road: Red Bulls 1 - Revolution 1

The Offside - NY Red Bulls at related • 2 views

After the DC game, I was calling for changes - even if it went as far as benching Conway a game - to do whatever it takes to wake this team up. But Osorio took it to another level, and it nearly paid off with a W. An excellent effort by the midfield, good stand up play by Goldthwaite and the backline, and the Bulls were one mistake away from a win.

Revolution 3-0 Dynamo

Well, well. Ever since the 2008 schedule was released, people were marking this game as one of the most anticipated of the new season. It was heralded as a game between giants and almost-beens, a battle between the perennial brides and the consistently underachieving bridesmaids. It looked like it, too, after all was said and done.

MLS Combine Day One: power brokers, bad offensive soccer and a new crop of coaches

Soccer By Ives at related • 3 views

The first day of the 2008 MLS Combine will be remembered for two things. It was the day we saw a new generation of MLS coaches get to work and it was a day that set offensive soccer back about 100 years as nervous draft prospects did little to stand out in front of the scores of MLS coaches and management folks in attendance.

Twellman Upset Over PNE Rejection

I saw this late last night and had to make a comment. Steve Goff had an interview with New England Revolution striker Taylor Twellman who said he was upset that the league or the Revs turned down an offer from English side Preston North End: "I want to go. It's perfect timing. It's the right club [..

Morning Ticker: No Spencer for Fire, Crew on the DP hunt and more MLS news

Soccer By Ives at related • 1 view

Good morning all. It is a busy day in the MLS world as the news is permeating throughout the league. My colleagues around the country are cranking out the information, which is definitely a good sign.

Here are some MLS-related stories to digest with your morning coffee:

Spencer out of the Fire race

Houston Dynamo assistant John Spencer tells the Houston Chronicle's Bernardo Fallas that he turned down the Fire coaching job, claiming that he did so because the contract offer was too low.

Transfer News: Twellman, Davino, Etc.

Slow start to the day but a couple things to mention to get us going. According to sources, and the ol' mighty Goff, Taylor Twellman had been courted by a European club. At first we didn't know which club, but thanks to Goff we now do and it was struggling English Championship side Preston North End.

Congrats Houston!

Houston over the Revs in a hard fought, but hardly scintillating MLS Cup final. You have to feel bad for Steve Ralston, who looked just emotionally crushed sitting on the bench. But there really is such a thing as a "big game"player--someone who seems energized and focused by the pressure of a cup final--and, as Steve Davis points out, Dwayne De Rosario is that kind of footballer.

Nos Audietis, Episode 77: Talking LA Galaxy with Taylor Twellman

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

This definitely was not the show we wanted to be doing this week. Rather than talking about the most glorious comeback in MLS history, we're left contemplating what went wrong. To help us sort through that mess, we asked ESPN color commentator Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman) to join us on the show.

What Would You Like to See from MLS Talk in 2011?

Major League Soccer Talk at related • 0 views

Happy New Year to all our readers and best wishes in 2011!

The past year was a big one for American soccer. Â A good but not great World Cup run, a highlight goal from Landon Donovan, and the controversial rehiring of Bob Bradley after the World Cup. Â A first MLS Cup win by Colorado, the signings of Rafa Marquez and Thierry Henry by New York, but maybe more importantly the rise of young players like Tim Ream, Teal Bunbury, Juan Agudelo, and Andy Najar.

International update

Looks like our acquisition of Gonzalo Martinez is just about official, and that Said Godinez is probably not heading to the nation's capitol. Nothing further yet on Carvallo. But this is developing quite nicely. Assuming we re-sign Vanney, we might see a rotation of three guys at center back again with Martinez, Vanney, and McTavish.
