MLS Week 24: Your Running Commentary

MLSLogo2013

By JUSTIN FERGUSON

All eyes will be on Toronto on Saturday evening as new Seattle Sounders signing Clint Dempsey is expected to take the field for his first MLS match in almost seven years.

The U.S. Men’s National Team captain will look to lead his new team closer to a Western Conference playoff spot when they take on Toronto FC at BMO Field. It will be an intriguing matchup for the Sounders, who have been shut out in their last three matches away from home. Their Canadian opponents, on the other hand, have won back-to-back league matches and would love nothing more than to spoil Dempsey’s debut.

Later in the evening, Sporting Kansas City will look to build off of a midweek CONCACAF Champions League victory and bounce back in league play against the New England Revolution, who are three points back from a potential playoff spot. The night’s action will wrap up in Utah, where Western Conference leaders Real Salt Lake will host a Houston Dynamo side that is unbeaten in its last four matches.

Here is a rundown of tonight’s MLS schedule:

7pm – MLS Direct Kick – Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders

7:30pm – MLS Direct Kick – Vancouver Whitecaps vs San Jose Earthquakes

    Martins goes down with ankle injury…Dempsey on about 32nd minute

    gets immediate chance on 3-2 counter but can’t get off a clean shot

  3. Fredo says:

    Looks like TFC rolling over… for the good of The League.

  4. Adrian says:

    Good second half by Toronto, that guy Brockie is trash he should br playing in NASL :) Much better second half by TFC.

  5. Citronomics says:

    Well… at least DeRo is coming on in the second half so maybe DCU will double shots on goal… Without Silva (and DeRo and Pontius), the made over squad generated zilch.

  6. Fredo says:

    Thanks for nothing TFC.
    Good work Van ‘Couve.
    Do something Dynamo.
