You get the feeling the soccer gods are punishing Chivas USA who are it seems watching the life drain out of another MLS season every time they step on the field.
And you’ve got to feel too for coach Robin Fraser who conceded after this soul-crushing loss Saturday — Seattle’s winner came in the 89th minute for their first come from behind victory of the season — that there is “no silver lining” for Chivas USA.
And as much as it is all going right for Seattle comeback kid Eddie Johnson (is it too late to draft him into the U.S. squad for Tuesday’s WCQ?) it’s just another futile season for MLS’ worst basketcase of a club.
It doesn’t get any easier for Chivas USA who on Saturday face the league-leading San Jose Earthquakes, which became the first club to qualify for the playoffs this weekend.
