Here’s a Clever Diagram of a Fantastic Union Golazo

Despite what ESPN would like you to think, no, the MLS isn’t going to become the next great American thing on the heels of the World Cup. It’s not a good league. Matches are fun to attend, and the atmosphere at PPL Park is great, but the league stinks. It’s borderline unwatchable when the EPL, Champions League and others are so readily available on TV. But, this goal by the Union against THE RAPIDS on Saturday night was awesome, and the diagram tweeted out by team today is almost as good (huge additional props for recognizing a tiny mistake and fixing it).

Nice use of social media. Meanwhile, the Phillies’ Twitter GIRL is reminding everyone that the team is in fact off for the All-Star break. FML.

  1. solid volley, I think these guys are inspired by the world cup. the play will probably fall back towards mediocrity, but nice spreading of the field and crisp passing.

  2. There are second division (two relagations down from the EPL) football clubs that come over to the States and routinely beat up on the MLS teams.

    1. Not at all true. MLS isn’t on the level of premier league, but they could easily hang with any team in the Championship (a level above where you’re talking).

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this
