MLS Weekend Preview: Consistency, quality fuel D.C. United's success

LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena held court on a wide variety of topics this week. He discussed the foibles of MLS rules and regulations and pondered the possibility of division-based play moving forward. Those thoughts merited consideration as always, but his observation about the MLS regular season perhaps proved most pertinent given the action in midweek. "Major League Soccer right...

Defusing the myth of MLS soccer stadiums that are ‘difficult places to play’; By Steve Davis

Clichés are bad enough in sports broadcasting and writing. But the very worst among them: the clichés that aren’t even true. It’s a double whammy of awful. This is one of my real pet peeves in soccer journalism and broadcasting. Also file this under: “Some lessons never get learned, apparently.” So let’s go over this one more time: Just because a place has a great atmosphere...

New York City’s future remains bright despite troubled start

The results aren’t painting a pretty picture for New York City FC ahead of the biggest match in franchise history. NYCFC haven’t won since the middle of March. They’ve lost five of their last seven, with measly draws picked up against Colorado and Philadelphia. During that stretch, the team has scored a measly three goals. They’ve led for a total of thirty minutes. The worry...

10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 9

Sleepwalking in LA  Alan Gordon has, single-handedly netted LA somewhere around five of their 13 points this season. Without Gordon, who hit the 200 appearance landmark against Seattle earlier this year, the Galaxy are bottom of the Western Conference. This is, for the moment, LA’s worst...

Sporting Kansas City-Galaxy Preview

The last time the Los Angeles Galaxy lost at the StubHub Center, the 2014 season had gotten off to a negative start. Now 25 matches later, it's probably safe to say the defending MLS Cup champions have ironed out any deficiencies in their home building. That streak could face a stern test with Sporting Kansas City visiting Saturday night for a matchup of the last two league champs...

Vancouver Look to Improve Form vs Galaxy

For the Vancouver Whitecaps the first four games of the 2015 season have been far from pretty. Arguably the first half of their season opener versus Toronto FC was the most pleasing to the eye, a game they would eventually lose due to missed opportunities. The 7 halves succeeding that first half have been pretty underwhelming. Yet somehow the Vancouver Whitecaps sit all alone in...
