MLS Report
Red Bull New York vs. DC United; FC Dallas vs. Kansas City Report

Red Bull gives us wins! DC United down Red Bull New York 4-1 yesterday.

DC United went up the road to Giants Stadium and left with a 4-1 victory over the Red Bull New York club that still needs to figure out if they are a soccer club, or a day time soap opera. Alecko Eskandarian scored two goals, giving him three for this season (all against NY) to power United to the top spot in the East, remaining the only undeafted club in the East as Kansas City choked in the last seconds of stopage time today against FC Dallas. DC scored the same number of goals against New York as the Red Bulls have scored all season so far. Right now the Atlantic Cup looks to be staying at RFK for another season.

FC Dallas "Burn" Kansas City 2-1.

ESPN2 showed a second MLS match this weekend and with FSC not showing any matches this season, I sat down to watch FC Dallas vs. Kansas City. FC Dallas scored on a very scrappy 4th minute gaol by former Manchester United prospect Kenny Cooper. Between the 4th minute and the 92nd minute, the game was a very rather dull event to watch.

Chris Gbandi picked up a Red Card, so DC United will not see him next week, leaving Dallas to 10 menfor the final 22 minutes. Kansas City scored the equalizer in the 92nd minute, so I figured that DC would be tied with both teams all with 10 points each. Not maybe a minute later, Kansas City choked up a big goal. Eddie Johnson won the ball at midfield, yet stepped back from the ball, allowing Aaron Pitchkolan to just pick up the ball and head up field to only run into two more KC players. Neither of them stepped up to challenge Pitchkolan and he just head towards goal, took his shot and gave Dallas a 2-1 win.

FC Dallas won their match, but didn't show me that they are that dangerous a club. They have Kenny Cooper and Ruiz (if he is healthy) but I wasn't that impressed with them. Furthermore, they had three cards in the game, one being a straight red card. Looking forward to next saturdays match at RFK between DC United and FC Dallas, Ii have to think that the defensive style that United plays will do nothing but cause havoc for Dallas, and cause some of them to lose thier cool. Dallas had 6 yellow cards last week against Colorado.
