    Default MLS Games This Weekend - April 13-15

    Friday

    TWO Games Tonight

    Orlando @ Philly 8pm- Two teams who really need to turn it around. Orlando has way more energy & emotion at home then Philly does. The warm weather (its going to be 21 at kick off) should give these two teams a good chance to run at each other. 2-2 draw Why watch this game? We play Philly at home in 3 weeks.


    LAFC @ Vancouver 10pm - LAFC never adjusted to the turf in Atlanta. They have to deal with a much more compact defence this week. This is a test of Bradley's coaching. I think they do better but Vancouver's set pieces will win out in the end. 2-1 for the home team. Why watch this match? Attack vs. Defence



    Saturday


    Montreal @ NYRB
    1pm - NYRB isnt saving themselves anymore. If they realease Kaku in this game from the start, Montreal slow defence is in big trouble. Piette does well against Bradley types but struggles against pace. 3-1 for NYRB Why watch this match? Its always nice to watch blue & black stripes cry.


    LAG @ Chicago 3:30pm - The Zlatan travels! Fire are not all that good & are relying upon the ancient legs of Schweinsteiger as a sweeper. LAG isn't much better. 2-1 for LAG. Why watch this match later? Zlatan travels! That and we play Chicago later this month.


    Columbus @ DCU
    7pm- Slightly more people then at a Columbus home game, but not by much. Not really a DCU home game. Columbus is a much better team. 3-1 for the away team. Why watch this match? You scout for Ballotelli.


    FCD @ NER 7:30pm - NER has been very good offensively - defence, not so much. First away game for FCD on that carpet is not going to be much fun. 2-1 for NER Why watch this match? Weep for what FCD could have been.


    Minnesota @ Portland 10:30pm- Portland reopens at home after a reno. Thought Savarese would be a better coach but he's been unable to get his players to work as a unit. Still beats the Loons who just seem to throw out the ball and go have a kick about. 2-1 for Portland Why watch this game? Bears, logs & the histrionics of the Loons coach


    Sunday


    Seatlle @ SKC 4pm - SKC is doing there usual sprint in the first part of the season. Seattle is doing their usual swan dive before hoping to climb up later one. Seattle are yet to score a goal in 3 games & are just not a good team. 3-0 for SKC Why watch this match ? The hair is going to be amazing in this game!


    NYC @ Atlanta 6pm MATCH OF THE WEEK NYC has looked nigh on unstoppable grinding out points. Atlanta is more chaotic but finding a way to get the result. Neither teams's defences are all that good but the NYC midfield is better then Atlanta's. 3-2 for NYC. Why watch this game? Our two toughest opponents in the league

    NYCFC at Atlanta is the game of the year. At least until TFC play NYCFC.

    Just finished watching the Portland v Minnesota game and thoroughly enjoyed what was an end to end affair. Thought the Timbers were a bit lucky to get all three points and MU were worthy of a share of the spoils at the very least. Darwin Quintero looked great on his debut and im regretting we didnt land him if the rumours we were interested in his signature are true. He bagged himself a great solo goal and was involved in th second by pressuring Tuiloma who put the ball in his own net to set up a nervy last ten minutes for the Timbers

    NYRB recovering from their CCL ousting well dominating Montreal. No clean sheet though.

    Zlatan being Zlatan. Great turnout in Chicago who had real chances to even it.

    DC barely gets away with their win against 10 man Columbus. DC still on parade and playing out of Annapolis 2hrs away from RFK stadium.

    SJ and Houston both get a point in a deserved result. Crazy OG and a great couple of goals for both sides.

    Portland deserved the win but I liked the OG to take em down a peg.

    Looking forward to watching the Atlanta game on TSN2. So says TSN.CA.
    Alas, they're showing canned programming instead.
    Wonderful.

    Watching it on the international feed, with only crowd sound. Unlike in other stadiums, can't tell what is going on based on the level of noise - its just loud all the time. Not appreciably louder after a home goal.

    Yeah, the top 3 teams in the league are all in the East. Great game to watch.

    Another enjoyable game between Atlanta and NYCFC. Probably a fair result at the end of the end. I suppose an Atlanta win would have suited us better but for some reason I just can’t take to the Georgia side. Sure they play some great fluent forward attacking football, and have a wealth of young talented Latin American players who add to the league’s caché, but some reason I find them annoying. Maybe it’s the theatrics every time they draw a foul but it’s probably just sheer jealousy

    KC vs Seattle had a few highlights as well. Fun finish for a neutral.

    But yeah, That ATL NYCFC was a hypefest that lived up to.
