The league-leading Crew are now undefeated in six games, while Toronto’s five-game unbeaten stretch establishes a new club record.
Great atmosphere and competent commentators on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp feed added to the EPL Lite feel (almost half of Toronto’s lineup played in the U.K.).
Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers had a shot cleared off the line.
You can almost heart Sigi saying: “Goals change games.”
By the way, assuming Sigi answers my e-mail, I’ll have more on the Crew and Rogers in my Tuesday column.
Off to the Chivas USA game in a few minutes and you’ve got to wonder: are these two teams meant for each other?
From this morning’s Washington Post:
Chivas USA, crippled by injuries to its back line and next to last in the Western Conference with a 1-4-2 record, might be the perfect opponent for an equally stressed team.
“We are as bad as they are,” United midfielder-forward Santino Quaranta said. “They’re struggling, and so are we.”
Let’s hope it’s a half-decent game.
Lastly, a reminder the Galaxy PR folks sent out to me this morning: “I wanted to make sure that you know our game will also be on FSN Primeticket on Sunday with pregame show at 11:30am.”
Nope, didn’t. Thanks.
