Chivas replaces Houston as the final team this week.


Some really powerful wins this weekend from Colorado, Chivas, Seattle, Salt Lake, LA and Vancouver. Great performances.
-Colorado showed that even without Conor Casey they will be capable of defending their title.
-Chivas went on the road and really put it to New England. The game was not as close as they score.
-Seattle absolutely tore out the heart of Kansas City and showed it to them before they died on two goals in second half stoppage time. NSD.
-Salt Lake destroyed the badly shaken New York, who appear to have no idea what they are doing. And that was an RSL team that had lost 2 in a row coming in.
-LA regrouped from a midweek beat-down in Portland and faced Dallas in a showdown of the leagues top two teams. No contest. The David Beckham show rolled over FCD.
-Vancouver may not be a very good team, but they have had a good attack from game one and they got their hands on the league's worst team Chicago. It wasn't even as close as they score.


Eric Hassli of Vancouver makes Chicago pay for poor defense and then launches a 23 yard bomb in to the upper corner just 32 seconds into the game.


Dominic Odura uses his lightning feet and a great double move to give himself the space to smash one home for Chicago.


This is torture for a defense - KC does the long throw in and Kei Kamara simply skies for the header and beats everyone from Seattle to the ball! Great play.


Geoff Cameron of Houston breaks Philly hearts with a low long ranger late in the game.


Mauro Rosales of Seattle works his magic for a scrappy goal in the games dying seconds. I love this player.


And 90 seconds later Rosales again scraps his way into the box with the ball where it bounces around to Lamar Neagle who wins the game for Seattle.


Julian De Guzman gets the ball about 35 yards from goal, takes a few strikes in, says what the frick, and blasts em. TFC goal. DC furious.


Not a spectacular goal from Nat Borchers of RSL, but a classic corner kick-header combo, then he takes it up a notch by joining his tattooed brethren in the stands!


Alan Gordon of San Jose uses his head to crank home an excellent long cross from Steven Beitashour that burns the sleeping Portland defense.


Five players under 20 years old scored goals this weekend! Wow! Let's see them all:
-Orr Barouch - Chicago
-Diego Fagundez - New England
-Luis Gil - Salt Lake
-Gershon Koffie - Vancouver
-Jack McInerney - Philadelphia


A great goal from Brian Mullan of Colorado as he rockets one from 30+ yards out and shakes the whole stadium!


And then there is this siiiiiiiick goal by Marvin the Martian Chavez of Dallas, where they hit LA on the counterattack and Santos drops it back for Chavez to pin point to the upper sliver of the upper corner of the upper 90 of the far post! Goal of the week!


General News

Dwayne DeRosario was named MLS Player Of The Week, for the second consecutive week.


Not one single team in the Eastern Conference won a game this weekend!


Seattle is the 3rd team this season to break the 40 point barrier.


Michael Lewis of Big Apple Soccer talks to NY GM Erik Soler about the brutal run his team is on.
-Soler also says Backe is not on the Hot Seat.


Alan Gordon needs surgery to repair a hernia. Now they have to decide when he has the procedure done.


Kurtis Larson of The Sun dumps all of TFC's problems on the head of Andy Iro.
-Which is completely unfair because #1 he didn't pick himself, and #2 anyone who thought he was the answer is clearly not paying any attention to MLS.

Standings Etc.


The Montreal Impact has unveiled their new team shield for the 2012 season.

You may be wondering what "Tous Pour Gagner" means. It is Latin for "Team Full Of Psyschos." Oh, wait. Sorry. No. I am being corrected. It is actually French for something like "Victory Through Unity." Well, that's no fun. And lets hope that was not France's moto when WW2 broke out.


The big friendlies that were being played this summer all around North America featuring mainly European teams in their preseasons wrapped up this weekend in Dallas.
