MLS Match Night: Your Running Commentary

The San Jose Earthquakes and Los Angeles Galaxy always bring plenty of tension and animosity to their 'California Clasico' rivalry, but the latest installment of their derby will bring an extra level of intensity because of just how much is on the line when they face off tonight.

The Earthquakes have moved into first place in the West, and need a victory tonight to ensure holding on to that spot. The LA Galaxy are riding a three-match winning streak and can climb even further up the standings with a victory tonight.

LA-San Jose is just one of the quality match-ups on tap today. In Columbus, the Crew will look to push Real Salt Lake's losing streak to three games, while Philadelphia looks to keep their recent momentum going in Houston when they take on a struggling Dynamo side.

7pm– Galavision - Toronto FC vs. New York Red Bulls

7:30pm– MLS Live/Direct Kick – D.C. United vs. Montreal Impact

7:30pm– MLS Live/Direct Kick - New England Revolution vs. Seattle Sounders

    It would be something for Zakuani to make his return tonight. I will be at the game and I would love to see him back. Big game for the Revs to stay in the playoff picture

    Um, 7 minutes in, Toronto 1-Red Bulls 1. Maybe they should have brought their goalkeepers.

    Wow! Is Eddie Johnson under some dillusion of getting on the Klinsman radar? 2 nice headers to put Seattle up on NE after giving up an early off side goal, all at 36 minutes!

    I saw that: quite the move! I’m not sure the defense was really awake, but I predict a ‘must see’ video from Ives.

    Cut back and far post is his move, he’s done it a couple times this season.

    Would love to hear the official’s explanation for why Eddie Gaven didn’t deserve a booking for a cynical scissor tackle from behind while pulling the player down by collar.

    Julio Jones steps into and puts two hands into Espindola’s chest and tackles him as Espindola blows by him on the edge of the box.

    Referee having a shocker.

    Seattle just cant get it right in league play right now, although Eddie Johnson looks like he may finally be coming on.

    Granted NE could have scored two more that they put over the bar, but Sene was easily a meter offside on the first goal.

    Juninhno throws an elbow into San Jose player’s throat and somehow only sees yellow.

    I’m going to just stop complaining about MLS officials and applaud only good decisions.

    If you never hear from me again, that is why.

    Okay forget what I just said about not complaining… but that’s horses&$ to card Lenhart for not hearing the whistle from 60 yards behind him with the crowd screaming and him on a fast break.

    Ridiculous.

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a half of soccer quite like this one anywhere.

    Don’t really know what else one could ask for.

    And ANOTHER huge blown call. Lenhart is in on goal again and called offside when he’s a yard onside easy.

    This is so freaking sad.

    There was a huge collision on a cross. 4-5 guys. I don’t remember if it was an arm or foot that got him, but he had a nice shiner and his eye was starting to swell shut throughout the first half.

    If he doesn’t get a pretty decent suspension, the league has lost all credibility.

    I posted this earlier and my comment got deleted. what’s going on? some kind of LD conspiracy???

    All I’m trying to figure out is what Landon’s comment was from a couple years ago that the commentator’s referenced just before halftime about hinting at retiring from international play.

    And by “a couple years ago” I meant “a week or two ago”…not sure how years came out in my typing.

    You would be pretty frustrated too if you just got overlooked for the very competition that you brought to your home country! Come on it was a harmless kick of the ball, at most a game or two suspension. Don’t over react just bc it is becks.
