MLS Match Week Seven: SBI Live Commentary

MLSLogo2013

A trio of key Eastern Conference clashes kick off the day’s proceedings as MLS Week Seven features a full slate of nine matches on the day before Easter.

The Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo are two teams struggling as they face off at PPL Park. Both teams got off to promising starts to the season, but they each have slumped since and will be desperate for a win today.

Familiar foes Chicago and New England also start things off early at Toyota Park, with Quincy Amarikwa and Mike Magee looking to do damage against the Revs’ Jose Goncalves-less defense.

A pair of intriguing Western Conference clashes kick off later today, with the LA Galaxy visiting the Vancouver Whitecaps, and RSL playing host to the winless Portland Timbers.

SBI will be providing live commentary on today’s action so please feel free to follow the action here. As always, please feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

    Who is the color guy in this chicago v NE game? hes awful. That wasn’t a well taken penalty at all, it was nearly saved. Also thought the call was soft, very little contact and officials have been told that feet tangling up shouldnt be a foul.

        Unsolicited? Hes on a national broadcast, I’d expect a bit better is all.

      Robiee Russell. He is very unpolished yes. When they show him, he is looking at the sky and not the camera when he speaks. Very odd.

      Why is it that NBC always has the color guy on the field for MLS? It’s cool that they can give a little insight about what’s happening on the bench but there it really loses the conversational aspect of being together in the box.

    Is it too early to bring Quincy Amarikwa into the conversation? Amarikwa is in blistering form

        You mean the Olsen who is on a three match unbeaten streak? And has more wins than six other teams? Unless he loses the locker room, he’s got the season.

    Some of the Passing in the Dallas/Toronto game is terrible. There have been multiple passes just straight to the feet of a the other team. Both sides guilty of poor passing.

      I take it he wasted a good change on goal when he should have passed? Do tell.

        Lazy runs or no runs, poor passing.

        He was just subbed after 76 minutes… DP being subbed off.

        I’m sorta pro Eddie going to the WC because he can get so big in the air but… I really don’t know if we want a guy like him in the locker room. I mean… is it worth it over Wondo?

        He isn’t scoring but you take away that outlet away DC has no way to relieve pressure. DC is better with him on the field, mistake taking him out.

    MLS Live has been a huge disappointment and waste of money. For this much, I want greater than Netflix quality. Can’t even keep the service up.

    If that was a Pen, I wouldn’t argue. He clearly pulled up and waited for it but still you can’t run into people like that.

    Dempsey Gets fouled twice back to back. No call. Terrible Reffing. 2nd foul wasn’t even subtle.
