MLS Sunday: Match Night Commentary

The San Jose Earthquakes have locked up the Supporters Shield and first place in the Western Conference, but they will still be looking to keep their dream season going with a win against the Los Angeles Galaxy (7pm ET, Galavision) in one of three Western Conference matches tonight with playoff implications.

The Galaxy are trying to fight for the No. 2 seed in the West, but will need to win out and get some help to make that happen. San Jose will be looking to continue their outstanding home form.

In Seattle, the Sounders take on FC Dallas in an important match for both sides (9pm, ESPN). Dallas needs a win to keep their playoff hopes alive while Seattle can move into second place in the West with a victory.

Vancouver can move a step closer to a playoff spot with a win tonight (7pm, Direct Kick) against a Portland Timbers side seeking a win to clinch the Cascadia Cup.

    Directv needs to add Time Warner Sports…

      I think the saying is supposed to be “Time Warner Sucks!”
      Can’t wait til we get rid of the FCC regulations that keep us reliant on cable/satalite companies to act as middlemen that we have to pay to bundle channels together and sell to us, when we only really watch regularly about 5 channels that we really care about and could be subscrining directly to content providers like MLS or individual channels over the internet.

    Oh well…at least we get a game even if it’s in spanish and lo-def!

    Wow. The LA Galaxy should ban the Angel City Brigade from ever participating in any official capacity again.

    Police dogs searching their buses, entire supporters group removed from game and sent home. Hooliganism, berating other fans with abusive language, causing real problems.

    They posted some really nasty things about the entire SJ organization on their Facebook page and are just off the deep end.

    Earthquakes Women FC United reported that LA Galaxy fans set off smoke bombs in stadium and then fought riot police and tear gas.

    A group of fans were arrested for hooliganism and riot police accompanied by K-9 units searched the ACB busses. All non-arrested ACB members were escorted from the stadium and forced to leave by Santa Clara police.

      I never saw any smoke bombs and they definitely weren’t fighting the police. I was sitting about 10 rows up from them. Security had them under control in the stands. A fight broke out between some Ultras and LA fans behind the stands. Same old thing, we despise each other. There was a lot more fighting back in the day at Spartan, but security is much tighter at Buck Shaw. They were removed and escorted from the stadium for their own safety. The police did them a favor, it could have been much uglier… bar none the worst traveling fans in the league, not even close. On a side note, I saw M. Doyle a few rows below them sitting next to some guy holding a microphone recording the nuttiness…hysterical. As far as the game, I’m more, concerned that LA
      opened up our D with ease with extremely quick passing. It was very impressive and alarming. We didn’t have answer for Keane at all, he was constantly finding pockets and creating havoc. LA was also successful with high pressure, we couldn’t do anything on offense. They backed off that in the second half, which was odd because it was very effective. Cronin and Baca struggled with their marking allowing Juninho to run the show. Awesome battle between Omar and Lenny… overall, the typical Cali death match.

    Sad Montero has to flop so much. Grow a pair
