MLS Week 15: Your Running Commentary


Major League Soccer is in full swing Saturday night with a six-match slate. Among the highlights include the San Jose Earthquakes traveling to Philadelphia for the second-ever match at PPL Park; D.C. United visiting Red Bull Arena for the first time for an Atlantic Cup rivalry bout against the New York Red Bulls; Chivas USA searching for its first victory in MLS play since May as the Goats travel to the heartland to play the Kansas City Wizards.

Here is a run down of all of Saturday's matches:

6 p.m. – San Jose Earthquakes at Philadelphia Union (Fox Soccer Channel)

7:30 p.m. – D.C. United at New York Red Bulls (MLS Direct Kick/SBI Live Commentary)

7:30 p.m. – Los Angeles Galaxy at New England Revolution (MLS Direct Kick) 

8:30 p.m. – Chivas USA at Kansas City Wizards (MLS Direct Kick) 

8:30 p.m. – Columbus Crew at Houston Dynamo (MLS Direct Kick) 

If you will be watching tonight's matches follow along with tonight's matches on the comments section below. Enjoy the action.


  1. I would like to officially announce that my beloved Kansas City Wizards are officially being placed on fandom-probation.
    Effective immediately I shall withhold all compliments regarding the team or its ownership, refrain from any optimistic thoughts regarding results or transfers, cease all fandom apart from attending home games and watching away games, desist from wearing any KCW paraphernalia (unless attending a home game), abstain from all negative comments about other MLS teams, and forgo any conversations or thoughts regarding the Wizards chances of winning another game until any 2 of the following events occur:
    (1) Peter Vermes is fired from his post as both head coach and technical director
    (2) Sunil Chhetri receives playing time in an MLS match
    (3) The Wizards win 3 games in a row
    (4) Davy Arnaud is stripped of the captaincy and/or earns the title of Captain through on the field performances
    (5) The wizards sign a Mexican Designated Player
    (6) Josh Wolff is sold
    (7) Josh Wolff is traded
    (8) Josh Wolff is left outside for too long and he melts

    In the event that I am witness to Josh Wolff partaking in an MLS match whilst playing for the Kansas CIty Wizards, fandom-probation will be re-instated regardless of how many requirements have previously been met, unless physical or video evidence can be provided which proves beyond reasonable doubt that Josh Wolff contributed to a positive outcome on a minimum of 5 plays in said match.

    I shall continue to use the internet to monitor the off-field goings on of the team, but only so that I may be aware of whether or not fandom-probation can be lifted. (If Josh Wolff’s lack of apparent desire to play the sport for which he is paid were to cause him to wander off the field in pursuit of another paycheck for doing nothing, never to be seen again, I would want to be the first to know.)

    If fandom-probation cannot be lifted by the opening of the new Wizards Stadium, more serious restrictions on my fandom and support of my beloved Kansas City Wizards will be imposed.

  2. That Philly-San Jose game was great viewing for a neutral. It would have been a great watch for any new-to-MLS fans brought in by the excitement of the World Cup. Lots of attack from Philly all game, end to end action in the second half, and then heartbreak for the Sons of Ben.
