FOCUS: A lesson from the Rapids

By Paul Gardner

The impressive thing ... the vastly impressive thing  ... about Colorado's PK win over Dallas was the ordered, skillful, intelligent, and at times even attractive, way that the Rapids played with 10 men ... playing short-handed invariably means a team will pack their defense and, yes, Colorado did that ... it also means a team will ...

MLS CONFIDENTIAL: History favors Quakes, Revs

By Ridge Mahoney, Senior Editor
Soccer America Magazine

SKY IS FALLING. It's appropriate that an advertising blitz for the feature film ''Chicken Little'' is underway as postseason doomsayers descend on higher-seeded teams that lost their first game.
