    It’s kinda wet in the Columbus game…

  2. jts says:

    Islanders beat Toluca

  3. Grubbsbl says:

    Columbus down 1-0 to an absolute bomb of a strike.

  4. Islander in Austin says:

    Islanders representing!!! Awesome comeback from 2-0!

  5. Aden says:

    Look at the pitch… how is this allowed?

  6. David Horst says:

    PI Islanders are the story of the CCL

  7. Aden says:

    Columbus just screwed on that offside call. Wide open on goal, and he was a good yard onside.

  8. Islander in Austin says:

    2-0 Municipal

  9. AB says:

    Good to see Columbus is allergic to rain.

  10. Brian says:

    This sucks. I just signed online to complain about the pitch in the crew game only to see municipal send a perfect through ball and score as if the pitch was perfect. I’m still not sure if this game should be played right now, but if they can find a way to play, so should we.

  11. Islander in Austin says:

    Pulled one back 2-1 now Municipal

  12. Islander in Austin says:

    well put. Mexican teams always complain about the pitch when they lose but BOTH teams have to play on it.

  13. Islander in Austin says:

    Colorado laying the smack down on Philly 2-0 59th minute

  14. Islander in Austin says:

    Make that 3-0 67th min

  15. Grubbsbl says:

    Municipal isn’t from Mexico…

  16. Harraby Harry says:

    Philadelphia has proper footy culture!

  17. John says:


  18. Mwing09 says:

    I cant watch central american leagues, its complete garbage. Its not 90 minute football, its play 55 minutes and then watch the leading team fall over and stall for 35.

  19. Never First says:

    If you have ever been to Honduras during rainy season, you’ll know they are more used to playing on that type of field than an MLS team is. That said, the Crew left all their starters at home so can’t really complain about the result.

    Lenhart should be suspended by Warzycha for trying to provoke the Municipal players. Their coach was an idiot, also trying to start fights.

  20. Mumbly Joe says:

    3-0 to chicago against Jon Busch — ives didn’t you just write a column trashing the fire for getting rid of Busch??? One keeper on the field tonight clearly had US National Team potential… guess which one it was??

    (SBI-Where have you been all year Joe? Interesting choice for your first comments, or should I call you Frank Flopas like in your other comment here. Hope you stick around beyond tonight to keep sharing your thoughts on the Fire.)

  21. Frank Flopas says:

    “Throw more dirt on the grave”, eh? heh. 3-0 to chicago.

  22. Neruda says:

    Guessing it wasn’t Busch.

  23. Neruda says:

    Jon Busch lit a fire (no pun intended) under Freddie L. tonight. After a first half verbal altercation Freddie came back and was clearly man of match.

  24. Vik says:

    san jose should stick to defending and squeaking by with wins. This possession and attacking has them completely at a loss.
