Before we get into the weekend’s games, there is a bit of news today.
Jon Busch, waived last week by the Fire, has reportedly signed with the San Jose Earthquakes.
He’s a quality keeper, but the Earthquakes’ issues, I think, would be better addressed by adding some defenders.
Now, for the week that was:
Thursday, March 25
Seattle 2, Philadelphia 0
Friday, March 26
Colorado 1, Chivas USA 0
Landon Donovan was back in a Galaxy shirt and was, as he usually is in MLS, the best player on the field in the Galaxy’s 1-0 win in their home opener. … The Red Bulls opened their new stadium with a win that was really more impressive than the 1-0 score line might indicate. … The new-look D.C. United was, well, ugly in a 4-0 loss to the Wizards and a loss to Colorado in its home opener has to go down as a disappointment for Chivas.
