So here are my latest bits & pieces covering the Chicago Fire and Minnesota United.
The disgusting sad match between the Chicago Fire and San Jose Earthquakes was a really downer. A 5-1 loss leaves zero positives. I guess we call that ‘character building.’
As poor as Chicago have been, Minnesota United has been brilliant. Wins in the first two matches of the second half of the season, and the only North American team to beat an EPL team this summer (2-0 over Swansea City, whereas LA Galaxy were thrashed 7-0 by Manchester United, Tottenham beat Toronto FC 3-2, Seattle labored to draw Tottenham 3-3, FC Dallas were well handled by Aston Villa 2-0, Columbus Crew squeaked by with a 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace, and Sporting Kansas City were soundly beaten by Manchester City 4-1) have turned myself & my wife into some happy Loons.
So, I’m hoping to start creating pre- and post- match reports. This weekend Minnesota take on the Atlanta Silverbacks.
