Sporting KC-Dynamo Preview: Clean Slate

In underwhelming fashion, the first leg of the Eastern Conference final was pretty much what we expected to see–a grinding, halting game with tired players and slow build-up. Many blamed the MLS playoff calendar while others pointed to the physical styles of both teams, but there was a caveat. After the international break and two weeks of rest for nearly every player, the second...

New York Red Bulls Disappoint in Houston Tie

Painful memories of last year’s disappointing run were reminiscent within the New York Red Bulls team in the second half after they saw a red card that was caused by a malicious and uncalled for tackle from Jamison Olave, giving Houston the one man advantage.  Last year, the much hated Rafa Marquez received a red during a playoff game against DC United that demolished their chances...
