Some notes on the MLS action:

- Damn, Portland... get your s**t together. Maybe instead of sacking Spencer it should have been Boyd that got replaced by a striker who can actually finish
- FCD national anthem singer.... just... wow. Worst rendition ever... and even worse that she druuuuuuug it on and on. It actually hurt to listen. I'm glad LA won, almost as a punishment to whoever let this poor girl sing
- Great goals each from Alonso and Lenhart
- F**k you Portland, your fans deserve better (sorry I had to mention them more than once because they were just that bad)

Reno, pretty much spot on. I actually turned away from LA/Dallas because of that anthem. Man, it was hard on the ears and didn't seem to want to end.

As far as Portland, can't figure them out. They play Seattle like it's war, but lay down for just about everybody else. They play very uninspired football in the games I've watched. The back four is horrid. And Boyd, well Boyd looks like the international you used to see in the old NASL, the guy that was a star in europe, but retires to the US to finish their career. Too slow, not enough ball skills to dominate here. Portland needs to overhaul the entire side. They've gone backwards this season.

Yeah, Portland are the enigma of the league. And you are 100% correct about the old NASL analogy.

Either way, the fans are true supporters for continuing to show up in droves... the question then is can they keep that up if the quality of play continues to dwindle.

I can't figure out what the Timbers are thinking, they have what I think is some of our best talent sitting the bench and continue to get new people and immediately put them in as starters. Richards and Kimura both looks to nervous to play, as soon as they get the ball they are immediately looking for a way to get rid of it, Boyd is F'ING worthless 95% of the time with his walking around or wrestling the defender so he has an excuse for not getting to the ball. In the pre-season build up of Boyd they claimed if he touches the ball, it will be a goal. Yeah right.

Spencer definitely was not the teams problem as they have proved since getting rid of him.

We had a meet the team BBQ Sunday the only players from Saturdays game brave enough to show up were Songo, Kaliff, and Kimura

I would like to see them field Fucito, Mwanga, Songo, Zizzo, Nagbe, Kaliff, Jewsbury, Chabala, Horst, Futty, and Perkins

A decent showing by the USWNT against North Korea. Yup, North Korea... because "Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea" is beyond laughable.

And officiating stays consistently awful.

Yeah, I felt she swallowed her whistle on would-be fouls against the US a lot.

I was a bit disappointed they didn't do better, but then they didn't have to. But if they were happy with their play, why where they aggressive near FT? as Brandi was saying - risking injury when they should've just played possession...

BTW - what's up with the Chastain-Solo feud? Pretty funny.
