MLS Playoffs are underway … watching a little Real Salt Lake vs. Chivas USA. (Go Chivas!)
So supposedly RSL has gone with a “skinny” field since Chivas does better when they can spread the game wide. I had no idea you could adjust your field width based on your opponent. Is this unusual?
Just watching a little MLS … and it turned into playoff action when FC Dallas went down 1-2 to Real Salt Lake (stupid gay name) and needed to equalise to keep their playoff hopes alive. We were making progress on the attack … but alas, RLS scored a third goal in the 86th minute to secure their post-season spot while snuffing out Dallas’ last hopes.
UPDATE: Dallas (Pablo Richetti) just got its second red card. Does anyone know … do bookings carry over to the next season?
