Video Highlights: Chivas USA at New York Red Bulls

An allegedly nationally televised game few English language soccer fans could see on Spanish-language cable channel Unimas was summed up this way by Red Bulls coach Mike Petke –

“Let’s put things in perspective: We tied Chivas in the (95th) minute at home.”

Ouch.

Well, even if 1-1-2 Chivas USA still isn’t getting any respect from around MLS, noodle on this: the team boasts the league’s joint top scorer, they almost beat a New York team on the road that many pundits forecast could go all the way to MLS Cup and now, almost unnoticed, may have their best chance in some years of seeing off the winless Galaxy (0-1-1) this Sunday in the first of the final three SuperClasicos between the two clubs ever.

I’ll have more on the game in Tuesday’s column.
