MLS: Chicago Fire vs Columbus Crew Highlights Saturday October 9th, 2010 01:38

The Columbus Crew have not had a good week. First they lose in the final of the US Open Cup, then the LA Galaxy victory against the Philadelphia Union eliminated them from winning the Supporters Shield. The Friday night game at Toyota Park against the Fire was a chance to right the boat and crash the the 13th anniversary party of the Fire. Let’s just say that the Crew aren’t playing their best football heading into the playoffs.

I also thought I would bring you a collection of Freddie Ljungberg pictures depicting his time in MLS.

Via TheCrew.com:

The Chicago Fire celebrated their 13th birthday in style Friday night, getting goals from Peter Lowry and Brian McBride to defeat a listless Columbus Crew side 2-0 in front of 15,124 hopeful fans on an unseasonably warm night at Toyota Park.

The win keeps Chicago’s slim playoff hopes alive – at least for another day. The 10th place Fire are now eight points behind San Jose for the eighth and final playoff spot with three games to go. Chicago will be eliminated from postseason contention if the Earthquakes win and Colorado tie or win on Saturday.

The loss keeps the Crew in second place in the East, one point behind the New York Red Bulls with just two games to go.

Lowry put the Fire ahead in the 30th minute. Right back Steven Kinney played a ball to a checking Patrick Nyarko on the right side. Nyarko flicked the ball towards the middle, finding Lowry in stride just outside the box. The third-year midfielder did the rest, taking a touch inside to leave Columbus defender Chad Marshall in the dust before curling a 14-yard shot inside the far post with the outside of his right foot to mark the 600th goal in club history.

Marco Pappa nearly doubled the Fire’s advantage in
the 41st minute. The Guatemalan winger intercepted Crew center back Eric Brunner’s lazy pass on the left wing and took off, dribbling into the middle and eventually rolling a 15-yard shot off the far post from just left of center.

McBride doubled the advantage with a well worked goal in the 53rd. Nyarko assisted again, picking up Freddie Ljungberg’s ball just outside the right edge of the box before slamming a low cross to McBride at the near post. The three-time World Cup vet – who has just three regular season games left in his career – finished beautifully, opening his hips before hitting a left-footed shot into the top left corner with his first touch.

Columbus, unwilling to return home scoreless, stepped on the gas after McBride’s tally. The Crew registered numerous chances in the game’s final 35 minutes, but couldn’t quite finish.

Fire keeper Andrew Dykstra, filling in for injured starter Sean Johnson, came up with several big saves, denying hard shots from Frankie Hejduk and Brian Carroll in the 66th and 72nd minutes, respectively.

But the Crew’s best chance to pull one back came in the 90th. Second half substitute Kevin Burns broke free in the left side of the box and shot around a drawn-out Dykstra only to have his rolling left-footer cleared off the line by Chicago left back Bratislav Ristic.

Chicago will play Kansas City in their next match, hosting the Wizards on Tuesday night. Columbus has a longer layoff; they’ll take on Toronto FC at BMO Field next Saturday.

CHI — Peter Lowry 2 (Patrick Nyarko 9, Steven Kinney 1) 30

Hull City vs Manchester City highlights; Jozy's first PL goal Saturday February 6th, 2010 20:22


After drawing against league leaders Chelsea last Tuesday, it only seemed natural to build on it with a win vs City. From the start of the game Jozy looked aggressive, dangerous and bound to score. Jozy got his first goal in league play in the 31st minute and George Boateng also added his first for Hull in the 54th. City got a goal back from Adebayor, but Hull displayed enough grit to get the job done.

Manchester United vs Portsmouth highlights Saturday February 6th, 2010 13:18

United just completely out class Pompey. Rooney continues his torrid form, Nani still proving his critics wrong and Berba King is starting to contribute. Things are looking really good for Fergie’s boys.
