    Some doozy's on July 4th.


    Results below:























    Metros 2
    RSL 2


    Metros throw away two points by going up two goals and going up a man (Dunseth sent off for RSL) only to blow the lead. Questionable PK awarded to RSL in 90th minute for tying goal.

    Go to Metros In-game thread for some sweet bellyaching action (approx page 12 or 13)



    Galaxy 1
    Revs 1


    Revs tie the game on literally the last kick of the match. Andy Dorman pounces on a loose ball in the box to tie the match. Controversy here in this game perhaps as well as ref Michael Kennedy signals for 3 minutes of stoppage time yet allows the free kick preceeding the goal well into the 4th minute of stoppage time. I would like to see this unwritten rule of allowing teams to take free kicks after stoppage time runs out. Tough titties I say.




    KC 1
    Rapids 2


    Yet another strange game where Kansas takes a one goal lead, goes up a man in the first half (peguerro sent off for Crapids) and then proceeds to bunker in ( :eek: ) and allow two second half goals whilst a man up. Classic stuff.

    Andy, I hope to see you on Saturday. :D

    Agree- those were some wierd results. However the Rapids by law have to win of july 4. (They are now 9-1 I believe.)

    Those are some solid results. I would definitely neg rep FSC for their crappy broadcast tonight, including not relaying any scores from the other two matches being played during the Revs/LA game.

    That being said, and I know it gave New England a point which doesn't help United much, there aren't too many better sights in MLS than a Steve Sampson led team blowing a game on literally the last play. As soon as the free kick was sent into the box you could tell it was going to be a goal, and it was glorious.

    32-New England
    32-Chicago
    22-DC United
    22-Kansas City
    21-Metrostars
    14-Columbus

    CLB, DC, NE, MET have played 15 games, KC 16, and CHI 18.

    What's interesting is that CLB has already played 9 home games, and they're still way in last, so they will probably not make a run at all.

    And a DC win on Saturday would be very big, as it would put United three points clear of Kansas City with a game in hand as well.

    Very big game.

    And who knows, maybe the Galaxy will figure out how the F to win a game outside of HDC and beat the Metros, as well. Although, a draw coupled with a United win would work almost as well.

    3rd edit: Chicago and New England play each other, too, so if United wins then they'll gain points on at least one, if not both teams.

    Could be a great weekend if DC can snag the three points from the Wizards. Is Andy Mead coming to this one?

    The reason Peguerro was sent off is because he tried to imitate Maradona's "Hand of God" goal not once but twice :eek:

    Got busted both times.

    Who does he think he is, Judah Cooks?

    It works a little better when you do it on defense like Judah did. Just ask Torsten Frings. :rolleyes:

    Johnny Torres' reaction after that was classic. He was the only one on the field who could see Cooks swat the ball away and practically threw a tantrum in front of the ref.

    Three points from boring boring Arse, er, I mean KC this weekend would really be nice as we head towards the All Star break. I'm also of the opinion that if we have to use a depleted roster in Rochester to give us a better chance of taking points in the league, then by all means we should do it. I'd love to see us win USOC games, but not if that means losing league games.

    The Rochester game is just a friendly, isn't it?

    Yeah, but the Metros blowing a chance to get all three helps much more than any kind of result for the Rev's hurts us. I simply can't fathom NE falling apart so badly that they miss the playoffs altogether, so I think 'catching up' to them is pretty meaningless. Leapfrogging the Metros is more relevant, IMHO.

    It is? I just assumed it was a USOC match. If it's just a friendly, we should reschedule it.

    I also can't fathom NE not making the playoffs; but that doesn't mean catching up to them is meaningless. Not that I think it's likely at this point -- but if it happened, it wouldn't be meaningless. I think playing the ECC at home last year was huge.

    Agreed.

    We trail them by 10 points with 17 games remaining. Tough but not impossible.

    Too early to rule out our "best case scenario"!

    Now's the time to do it, with most of their starting lineup out, and they have all the depth of Demi Moore playing Lady Macbeth.
