[WEEK 12] Alan Gordon struck again, scoring in the fourth minute of stoppage time against his former team to give the San Jose Earthquakes a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy. The Quakes came back from down goals down in the last 14 minutes to take over first place in the Western Conference and extend the last-place Galaxy's winless streak to six games.

In Gordon's last three games, he's scored the tying goals in the 88th and 90th minutes and now the winning goal in the 94th minute. His winning goal against the Galaxy came after some horrific defending by the Los Angeles defense allowed him to sneak through and score on a header in the area.

"They hesitated," he said. "I didn’t, I finished it. Forwards get lucky sometimes, I got lucky, who cares, I put it in, end of story period."

In Wednesday's biggest upset the Columbus Crew beat the Seattle Sounders, 2-0, in front of 38,311 fans at CenturyLink Field for its first win ever over the Sounders.

Seattle has now gone three straight matches without a win (0-2-1) after starting the season 7-1-1. It had not suffered back-to-back losses at home in two years.

Said Seattle coach Sigi Schmid, "Right now, we seem to be not on the same page at times ... and that's my job. I've got to make sure we get on the same page."

    Well folks, the LA Galaxy's star was sure to tumble down and it sure defies logic for the fans to try and figure out just what in heck has happened? And for sure it isn't the mega bucks that AEG has poured into a fiasco - similar to last year's NY Red Bull's plummet to the abyss, & goes to show you that all the money one has (AEG) cannot buy soccer happiness. Also, just what is happening with the HC, is his job also as GM hampering his coaching expertise?
