    Considering Giovinco's hurt, I think they'll be grateful the pace of games has slowed.

    This is where I grumble about lots of things.

    Including the fact that I'm gonna miss a whole lot of games this week.

    Most all of them, in fact.

    Hooray! :p :whistling: :coffee:

    Preview of both Sounders games this week:

    Pass ball around the backline. Pass ball around midfield and backline. Pass ball to Lodeiro. Pass ball around midfield and backline. Pass ball to Jones. Jones crosses the ball where it is easily caught by the gk, or harmlessly bounds across the front of goal.

    Repeat above 10 times.

    Opposing team has a breakaway and scores a goal.

    Repeat passing ball around meaninglessly with a Jones cross ending the offensive threat several more times.

    Dempsey gets frustrated and shoots the ball from outside the box and hits the goalpost.

    Half-time.

    Start the half by passing the ball around meaninglessly with a Jones cross ending the offensive threat several times.

    Defense loses a mark and the opposing team scores a goal on a cross.

    Frantically pass the ball around meaninglessly with a Jones cross ending the offensive threat multiple times.

    Opposing team has a breakaway and scores a goal

    Even more frantically pass the ball around meaninglessly with a Jones cross ending the offensive threat multiple times.

    Somehow score a goal

    Continue frantically passing the ball around meaninglessly with a Jones cross ending the offensive threat.

    Game ends.

    You forgot Jones dribbling into the opposition creating an easy turnover that leads to a quick counter and shot on goal.

    I'm here just to see to it that Houston run themselves ragged tonight. That is all.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they win to be honest. I'm expecting Pirlo to start and probably have Mikey Lopez next to him so our midfield will be pretty soft for this game. I also wouldn't be surprised if Villa doesn't start.

    Well, the two teams will finish the night having taken 11 or 12 of the last 18 points available to them between the two and one of them could be ahead of the Champs on points. So there is that.

    It is amusing that Chivas USA is the second most popular tag...

    RSL has literally a lineup of players out or questionable due to injury and the youth WC. It's a bad situation.

    Well, if you want completely unrealistic, then have the Sounders comb Sporting KC.

    Apparently Andre Blake is playing in two different positions at the same time, if you're watching the Philly broadcast they had him introduce himself twice in the starting XI.

    It's kind of nice being able to watch a quality team, like the Union, before having to watch my horrid Sounders.

    How did the Dynamo allow the little guy to get to that ball first? Poor, non-aggressive defending, good bravery from Picault.

    Maybe one of Houston's defenders should have gone for that ball instead of just Fafa Picault.
