May 28th Pick Review

Thursday May 24 — ESPN’s Game

Chicago Fire @ New York Red Bulls(1-3 NYRB) 0-3 NYRB

ESPN must be awfully happy about this game. There was some pretty good soccer on the field, a non-draw, and enough scoring to keep the non-soccer fan interested. Good stuff.

Saturday May 26

Kansas City Wizards @ New England Revolution(1-2 Revs) 4-3 KC

Wow, I guess Eddie Johnson might be back after all.

Houston Dynamo @ DC United(0-2 DC) 1-2 DC

Christian Gomez finally scored and Ben Olsen added a goal as well. DC is starting to look like they’re capable of playing. As hot as New York and New England look, it might not be enough.

Toronto FC @ Columbus Crew(1-0 TFC) 2-2 Draw

Columbus finally got a couple of points and Toronto put up some points on the road, but neither side did enough to win.

Los Angeles Galaxy @ Colorado Rapids(1-1 draw) 0-1 Rapids

LA went down a man early, and ended up losing on a Herculez Gomez goal following a Terry Cooke cross.

FC Dallas @ Chivas USA(2-1 Dallas) 0-2 Chivas

Galindo and Razov both scored, putting the goats over Dallas.

Sunday May 27

Real Salt Lake @ Chicago Fire &mdash (2-1 RSL) 0-0 Draw

This was a game that neither team deserved to win. Chicago fans can take heart in breaking their losing streak, and RSL fans can (maybe) find a silver lining in the play of Kipre and Esky.

USL1 Friday Night Game

Miami FC @ Montreal Impact(1-2 Montreal) 0-1 Montreal

This was a pretty good game. The Montreal crowd seemed pretty engaged. Montreal’s really got to love their win as Vancouver lost to Carolina, setting up a huge Vancouver @ Montreal match for Fox Soccer Channel’s match next Friday.

How’d I Do?

I ended up 3-6-0 this week (4-6-0 if you count the US Open Cup game) and 6-8-2 overall. I’m still doing well enough that I’ll try picking this weeks games, but I’m sure I’m not at the top of anyone’s table.
