MLS Match Night: Your Running Commentary

MLS Logo

A quintet of intra-conference match-ups make up today's Major League Soccer action, led by the Seattle Sounders taking on the Colorado Rapids.

The Sounders are winless in eight MLS matches, but return to CenturyLink Field feeling good after a hard-earned point in a scoreless mid-week draw against Real Salt Lake. A victory won't come easy against a Rapids side that is fully healthy and showing signs of being ready to make a run up the West standings.

The Eastern Conference's lone match of the evening takes place at Livestrong Sporting Park, where Sporting Kansas City face the Houston Dynamo in a rematch of of the 2011 Eastern Conference Final. Sporting KC is coming in off a mid-week victory against Montreal and will be looking to close ground on D.C. United and New York atop the Eastern Conference standings. The Dynamo registered a mid-week draw against the Chicago Fire, and will be welcoming back Geoff Cameron, who missed that match with a hamstring injury.

Here is tonight's MLS schedule:

8 p.m. – MLS Live/Direct Kick - Sporting Kansas City vs. Houston Dynamo

    Looking forward to the conference finals rematch! Let’s go Sporting!

  2. Peter says:

    Lets go Houston. If Sporting and DC lose, NY can jump into first place with a win.

  3. Brian says:

    Come on Peter. When you root for Houston, the terrorists win. Ok, not really, but stil…

  4. downintexas says:

    hhahahaah, it’s true

  5. andrew in tally says:

    I am looking for a critique of Eddie Johnson. I know he has scored some goals. Does he look as if he can make a future claim for the MNT?

  6. nagaworkhereanymore says:

    What do you guys make of Donovan selling his house in Manhattan Beach and Lampard Lingering around the Home Depot Center?

  7. JrLaing23 says:

    Hasn’t lived in that house for a few years. He has been renting it out including to Lane Kiffin. Grant Wahl reported the house status a few nights ago.

  8. Halford says:

    gonna watch my first MLS match of the season rapids vs sounders

  9. Halford says:

    I don’t think Lampard is ready to retire.

  10. Halford says:

    streamers still being thrown on the pitch. Why is this still going on? It makes me cringe.

  11. atd says:

    Still fast and strong, still makes pretty good vertical runs, still dribbles out of bounds a bit more often than one would expect from a professional footballer.

  12. atd says:

    Oof. Before you jump to any conclusions about the quality of play this year, try to catch some other teams — San Jose vs. RSL next Saturday night would be a good one.

  13. USMNT Fan says:

    Eddie Johnson looks very impressive. With another goal today Klinsmann may have to send some scouts to Seattle.

  15. DCblackandred says:

    Would you like an award for participation?

  17. Chupacabra says:

    Really. It’s bush league.

  18. Juergen says:

    Ummmmmm. No.
