RESULTS: MLS Week 3


MY APOLOGIES:
I apologize for the horrible grey and white highlighted text. I was trying a new text colour (color for the Americans) and it's gone a bit weird. Instead of typing it all again I thought I'd try and make it at least readable. 


FC Dallas Win Postponed Game In Philly:
(Philadelphia 0-2 FC Dallas)

FC Dallas are now the only undefeated team in Major League Soccer after three games. It was an impressive result for the Texans on the road in Philadelphia. Not only did they have to overcome the Union, they also had to overcome the game being postponed over 24 hours due to snowy weather.


Montreal Stand Firm After Mid-Week Commitments:
(New England 0-0 Montreal)

I predicted a draw here and that's exactly what happened as the Impact held on for their first point of the new MLS season. New England on the other hand are still winless after reaching big heights last season. Montreal will be worried about an injury to Cameron Porter. 


Vancouver Commit Highway Robbery At Citrus Bowl:
(Orlando City 0-l Vancouver Whitecaps)

I only write reviews for the games I think deserve a mention and with a few games this week ending 0-0, there wasn't much to talk about from the MLS this week (compared to some of the craziness from last week) but Vancouver Whitecaps provided a massive talking point.

The Whitecaps stole (and I mean stole) all three points from Orlando with a 93rd (maybe even 94th) minute stoppage time goal. Heartbreak for Orlando but joy for the Whitecaps as they soared to a second-straight road win.


San Jose Celebrate Stadium Opening With Win:
(San Jose 2-1 Chicago)

San Jose's season last year was not one to remember and after a huge upset win in Seattle last week, the Quakes returned to San Jose and their new home at Avaya Stadium. They played in front of a capacity 18,000 and pulled off a win over the luckless Chicago Fire.

I caught some of the highlights during the day and it looked to be a great day for the Quakes. The stadium looks good, the team's looking good and the season ahead could bring some success.


Bits and Pieces:

-NY Red Bulls reminded everyone about what they can do with a 2-0 win over DC United.

-Portland and Sporting Kansas City both remain winless after three games after playing out a disappointing 0-0 draw. Who would've predicted both these teams to be winless after three weeks.
