MLS ’11 Round Two Open Thread
After Seattle and Houston kicked off the week’s action last night, we have a full slate of matches today that will mostly be regionally broadcast. Even this early in the season, there are some interesting story lines.
In Canada, Toronto looks to put their embarrassing first match behind them and hosts a Portland team that looked like an expansion team against Colorado. Columbus looks to get on track against a New York team that is suffering from depth issues; the intriguing storyline for the Crew is whether Robbie Rogers starts or how much he plays today.
Out West, two MLS Cup favorites square off as LA visits RSL. Both teams are suffering from players on international duty and injuries, but it still looks to be a good match. In one of the more intriguing matchups, FC Dallas and San Jose might be the best game of the night.
And of course, there’s a small friendly being played in New Jersey.
