Every center-back's dream goal
Toggle Commented Sep 29, 2012 on Must-See Goal: Martin Jiranek at Soccer By Ives
SKC plays a very exciting brand of soccer, not surprising their attendance has been great in their new jewel of a stadium. Fire did look dangerous on the counter, and in my mind that is the best way to beat SKC. Kansas City pushes so many numbers forward, including their outside backs, they leave themselves exposed to a quick counter if you catch their center midfielders cheating forward. Bunkering down against Sporting will lead to trouble, as RBNY learned. Ref also screwed Chicago over in the 2nd half.
One of the best D-Mid's in the league. Very underrated in all aspects of his game, including his leadership on/off the field.
This is the Champions League, not the US Open Cup. Don't think you'll see many European teams 'developing' their young players in the Champions League, that's what the reserve league is for. These games are too important to trust an entire reserve team to come away with a win, especially on the road. This draw might just come back to haunt LA.
Really have to question Arena's reserve filled starting line-up AWAY at Puerto Rico, road games are always tough in CONCACAF. Galaxy could have basically ensured their way into the next round with a win, but now they will need at least a draw at Metapan to advance assuming Metapan wins in PR. What's the point of bringing Donovan, Juninho, and Sarvas all the way to PR to play for 20 minutes? Arena should have started them, then pulled them out IF they got up by a goal or two.
Interesting also to see the voting split among states. Unsurprisingly states like Kentucky and Alabama are clearly for the MLB play, don't think we will see an MLS expansion team in those 2 states anytime soon. But Florida seems to appreciate the Henry goal.....

Vote for Henry's Olimpico in ESPN's Best of the Best here: http://espn.go.com/sportsnation/polls?pCat=114&sCat=2115 MLB play was clever, but you could see something similar on any little league baseball diamond.
