Valeri does it again for Portland
by Paul Kennedy on Sunday, Jul 27, 2014 11:17 PM EDT
[MLS: Sunday] For the second week in a row, Diego Valeri scored a late winner to give the Portland Timbers a 3-2 win at the Montreal Impact. The win moved the Timbers to within a point of the Western Conference top five and back to the .500 mark. Portland is one of seven teams that are .500 or better in what is shaping up to be a wild Western Conference race. Just three Eastern Conference teams are .500 or better.

KC's Aurelien Collin -- the great escape artist
Some seven months ago, writing on the day before the 2013 MLS Cup final between Real Salt Lake and Kansas City, I commented that KC defender Aurelien Collin "... is physical to the point of recklessness and seems to lead a charmed life right on the edge of red-card territory."

"It's been sort of a strange rhythm ... it's going to be a hectic August for us for sure. Guys enjoy games more than they enjoy training with me, so I think they're going to be happier to know that we have more games."

-- Sigi Schmid, coach of the Seattle Sounders, who host the LA Galaxy on Monday, the first of eight games for the Sounders over the next month. (MLSSoccer.com)
