  1. I like John also. When someone hints at playing elsewhere, USSF goes into black-ball mode. They ignore the player and smear both his talent and loyalty. That’s what they do.

  2. United 7 Sounders 0, and the Sounders owned the first half. One thing that sticks out among many is finishing. Sounders just have poor technique while United has classic finishing. Ianni responsible for first two goals, playing neither man nor ball. He just moves into empty space? Sounders first side looked very good, if Hurtado was in for Ianni then top notch. Bad news for GM Hanauer, his first two draft picks stunk up the pitch. Both tetteh and Carrassco looked terrible, completely lost. If the starting 11 stayed in it would have been a great match.

  3. In all fairness Venezuela played the more attractive football and hit the woodwork 3 times.. Very unlucky to go out on penalties

  4. It’s really remarkable to consider that even the Rapids, only in 5th place in the West, and after a ton of injuries and blown chances and so forth this year, are nevertheless a point better at this point than the NYRB, in 2nd place in the East.

    The single table would look brutal to teams in the East right now, I guess…

  5. Ballouchy looks like the lost tripet of Rafael and Fabio who must’ve fallen on his head as a baby and lost that first touch.

  6. So funny how many times I’ve seen Henry point to someone after a game when an opposition player asks for his shirt and he has to tell them he’s already promised it to someone else.

  7. Sounders had a pretty good first half against Man U, in fact I bet Seattle had a tad more possession. The obvious difference is that Man U is much more clinical and dangerous in the final third. Immensely entertaining regardless…
