The Sounders take on the final incarnation of Chivas today, at least Chivas as we know them. Chivas seems better than the past, though that hasn't translated to a splendor of points. It's not like they are DC United or anything. Wait, DC is fourth in the East? They have seven points? That can't be right... If they win today they could be tied for first in their conference? Now we are just getting crazy.
GAME OF THE WEEK
Despite their loss last week, FC Dallas is still at the top of the table through six games. They will attempt to defend home against a depleted Toronto, missing a number of key players including Jermain Defoe and potentially Michael Bradley. Bradley may still play and is in Dallas, but if he isn't in the starting eleven a big chunk of Toronto's core will be watching the game on CCTV. The injury list isn't pretty. Last week Toronto hosted the Colorado Rapids and lost 2-0, a scoreline that doesn't bode well against the fearsome firepower of FC Dallas which scored on a fluke bounce and a PK in their loss to Seattle. Huh, starting to rethink my GOTW choice right about now... In all seriousness though, Bradley sightings won't significantly alter the potential for entertainment in this Texas-sized matchup.
