San Jose Earthquakes 4 Chivas USA 0
A sympathetic-sounding Eliott Almond with our sister paper The San Jose Mercury news details the latest Earthquakes victory – and Chivas USA loss.
Notable: Chivas USA have notched five consecutive losses since much-heralded Shalrie Joseph arrived from New England to turn their season around and push the club into the playoffs. So much for that idea.
Quotable: Chivas USA’s problems are now at both ends of the field:
“For a lot of the year we weren’t creating opportunities, and in the last three games we’ve created quite a few, but we have not scored as many as we have liked to,” coach Robin Fraser said. “Really the goals that we have given up in the past three games have been just subpar, and inexcusable to be quite honest. As I said, for most of the year we have been talking about the fact that we are not creating enough, and over the past couple of games we have created enough chances, but we have given up some really, really poor goals.”
