In MLS play, four Western Conference teams will be in action as the Portland Timbers play host to FC Dallas, while the Seattle Sounders and Los Angeles Galaxy clash in a matchup between two teams separated by just one point in the standings.

  1. Well clearly that illegal ‘nudge’ on Wellbeck is a travesty. Com’mon ref we’re in minutge 41 and no penalty kick for Man U. Outrageous.

  2. O/T but do you think Clarence Goodson will be starting in the next WC if he’s healthy? Or can Gooch slide back into his starting role? Or will Ream/Cameron find a way to be starting next to Boca, if he’s on the roster
