Why MLS is praying Chicago wins it all
it makes sense...which is why a chicago vs chivas usa cup final would be huge...
Alexi Lalas replaces Julie Foudy for the rest of the season, presumably because unlike Foudy, Lalas is not pregnant.
Listening to Lalas describe the catastrophe in LA ought to be interesting.
But like Foudy, Lalas is still inept as a studio analyst.
I think that last segment might have contained the most awkward pause in the history of American soccer broadcasting.
SET PIECE, ROB! Not an insane concept.
Well, Lalas just more or less said Beckham should lose the armband to an "S.O.B." they sign in the off-season.
Yeah, I was doing the math as I turned on the TV, figuring Foudy must be in the ninth month by now.
When Lalas was describing the leadership vacuum on the field with the Galaxy (thereby dumping on Beckham I guess), all I could think of was the leadership - or lack thereof - Lalas himself provided.
Wow, that moment just made me cringe.
Amazing, Beckham captained England, but can't captain Los Angeles? Interesting.
He's not enough of an S.O.B.
Yeah, but what did he get England?
Already better than the first game, but still with some miserably sloppy play out there for two teams that are supposed to be peaking for the playoffs. The Fire just might sleepwalk their way to a loss in PKs if they don't get their heads out of their buttcheeks.
Blanco strikes me as a case study of the very thin line between genius and insanity. He just doesn't seem terribly mentally balanced.
Think the same thing now?
Both teams sprinted out of the gate, and they've spent 20 minutes catching their breath.
Agreed. Neither team very sharp. At lesat the Revs have an excuse.
Another injury for the Revs, the last thing they need.
Bad tackle by Thorington.
I may be in the minority on this one, but that should have been a straight red to Thorington. Spikes up right into the ankle.
When they show the camera side, you can see it's a big crowd in Chicago tonight (or at leats looks like a big one).
Blanco just missed a header.
Both feet off the ground, studs up - a red card must have crossed Mairuffo's mind.
Allen Hopkins, investigative journalist, informs us that Larentowicz has a right ankle injury. Duh.
I agree, and not because I'm a Revs fan. If the teams were reversed (NE tackle on CHI), I'd still think the same.
Agree on Thorrington. Shoulda been red.
Can Albright get carded for a dive after being taken out by his own GK?
Ohio-born Rolfe is the a massive threat to any team in MLS. Reis could have done better though.
