Bruce Arena will not win MLS Coach of the Year

By the way, I hope you all read the series Bill wrote about Eric Frimpong.  I’m embarrassed to say I gave up hope after the appeals were rejected, but the Monahan family did not, and neither has Bill.  I for one would hate to go to prison if I were innocent, and …

Don’t hate the ref, hate the game

So on Labor Day the Kansas City Wizards (shut up) eked out a point against one of the stingiest defenses in the league.  They were screwed.  Not only that, they were screwed by a correct call.  Correct, at least, according to the simple-minded way we interpret passive offsides these days.  …

Supporters Shield winner to be announced in 60-90 days

If the season were to end today, then we will have been spared a fate worse than death – namely, thirty-thousand posts proclaiming that Seattle has won the “real” league championship.  They’ve only got six points to make up, though, and Real Sigi has the team playing, in the words …

Whan that Aprille, with hise shoures soote

Wow, I’m getting called out by name a lot these days. Okay, fine – David Beckham came back in time to play against Dallas. I thought he wouldn’t, and he did. Thanks. Now, if you take that in a vacuum, Beckham did a Good Thing. However, the only reason he …

Two comebacks

Grahame Jones takes his share of stick from We the People, but he killed it over the weekend. Nice article on Charlie Davies and his comeback, and a nice shot at David Beckham. They’re both up at the LA Times soccer front page, and they’re both worth reading. Let’s get …

If the Galaxy had kept Kovalenko, I could have titled this "Angel and Dema."

Some jackoff, a couple of days ago: I’ll bet that guy feels pretty god-damned stupid today: Boy, if there’s one thing that pisses me off, it’s some monkey with a keyboard spouting off without having Clue One. And rather than apologize for being so wrong, the guy actually kept at …

MLS – Eminence Front

According to Major League Soccer Soccer headlines, MLS teams are starting to assert themselves against their eternal enemy, their players. Here’s Frank Klopas, who according to the headline, is wielding the hammer: Yeah! That’s laying down the law – oh, the actual article is slightly different? “Klopas: We expect Castillo …

The Stars Decline

Why does everyone hate the Galaxy? Okay, wrong question. Right now they’re the Kings, and they want to be the Lakers. This not being basketball territory, I won’t bore you with the many ways the Lakers represent Nearly Everything Wrong With Sports (the Clippers representing the remainder), but the Lakers …

I need an 80′s band reference for Hejduk going to the Galaxy. Any ideas? Madness? Haircut 100?

If that seems like a sorry-ass excuse for free agency, you’re right. I don’t know what the hell “first come, first serve” is supposed to mean in this case. Or the difference between a genuine offer and a Bona Fide Offer, apart from assuming that the Bonda Fide offer will …

MLS plan to rig Galaxy-Red Bulls final hits slight snag

Oh, like you saw a 0-3 beatdown coming. I can’t even say “I told you so” or “I saw it coming,” because after a couple of weeks of Galaxy and Sounders fans telling me I was off base, that Beckham was hungry to win, that Kovalenko provided the toughness in …
