NEW YORK/NEW JERSEY METROSTARS 1:0 COLUMBUS CREW

MET: Magee - 59' (1st of season, 1st of career)



DISCIPLINE SUMMARY:
CAUTION: MET - Williams - 10'
CAUTION: CLB - Maisonneuve - 31'


---
We are LIVE ON TAPE this week as I was busy today and had view the game at a later time. It's 11 pm, actually. Damn I'm tired. Of course, VHS means I can utilize the fast forward button. Take THAT, annoying Radioshack commercial! ESPN2 is pimping this as McBride v. Mathis. Can't argue with that. YES MORE COMMERCIALS.

FIRST HALF: Your keepers are Busch and Howard. Columbus gets a cross into the box in the first minute that is cleared out of bounds by one of the Metros. Goes the other way the next minute, but it is eventually collected by Busch. Crew earns the first corner of the game at 3'. It amounts to nothing. Newsflash: Kyle Martino is really good. Garcia is bleeding so the Crew will play for a short time a man down. Metros threaten in the eighth, but Dunseth comes in with a very risky tackle in the box to poke the ball away and give up the corner. Ensuing shot is just wide. Williams gets a yellow for a late tackle in the tenth minute. Replay shows the foul to be suffered by McBride. Crew works it into the box at 14', but the Metros defense holds and gets the clear. Martino gets fouled soon after. Crew free kick is saved by Howard. Moreno looks to be injured, and the MetroStars choose to sub him out for Magee. Crew get an opportunity in the 22nd, but Maisonneuve is whistled for a foul while trying to beat the defense. McBride gets a shot off at 26', but the shot goes wide to the left. Two minutes later he takes a kick to the jewels that earns a replay but no foul. OUCH. Next minute sees Busch make an amazing save. The ensuing corner is cleared. Crew keeps threatening, but can't seem to put it into the box. Maisonneuve gets a yellow in the 31st for some reason. TV is right on top of it as usual. HAR. Martino flagged for offsides. He keeps playing it for a moment or two and Howard takes him down. Not really sure what was up with that. Metros threaten into the 35th. Busch eventually collects the save. Big time collision in the opposite box as Busch is stripped and then pummeled. The initial tackle was clean, however, and the rest is deemed incidental. Another chance is quickly scopped up by Howard. Crew gets set up with a dangerous free kick opportunity into the 40th minute. Shot tries for the near post but Howard saves it. Cunningham steals it from Howard from behind, but the Crew still can't put it in. One minute of stoppage time is called for. The half ends with no more opportunities.

HALFTIME: Wow it goes by so quickly with the fast forward button. I can't say no to Tommy Smyth, however. He declares that there should be a system for evaluating referees' performances. Interesting.

SECOND HALF: OMG GOODYEAR BLIMP. No subs during the break. Crew almost gets it in at 48', but it's cleared across the end line just before the shot can get off. Cunningham gets another opportunity for Columbus in the fiftieth minute, but Howard makes a nice save at the near post. Another chance two minutes later sees Hejduk mishandle the ball on his first touch and send it over the end line for a goal kick instead. Garcia lets one rip from deep in the 55th minute, and Howard has to rely on all of his height to save it. Metros' first opportunity comes in the 57th, but Busch stretches out to make the save off his line. He has to do it again in the next minute, just barely punching it up over the top of the goal. Ensuing corner bounces around a bit and Magee NAILS it right into the crossbar and into the back of the net. MetroStars by one. Next minute, and Mathis almost makes it two, but it sails high. Whoa, Columbus has cheerleaders. First sub of the half as the Crew sub West for Paule. Clark rips one at 67' that almost beats Busch from very deep, but the keeper fists it away. Cunningham gets a shot the other way in the next minute that sails wide right. Another chance in the 70th yields a corner for the Crew that is punched out by Howard. Another Columbus corner in the 71st minute goes nowhere. Crew keeps at it into 74', but Howard plays the spoil once again. Play is stopped briefly for an injured MetroStar, and we'll play 11-10 for a bit, but not for long. Hejduk gets a shot off in the 82nd, but Howard is there once again. Columbus subs Walsh for Denton in the 84th minute. Metros make a sub. Magee goes out, but I missed who went on. I'm tired. Sue me. Howard takes some time to tie his shoe before taking a goal kick. Hilarious. Three minutes of stoppage time is called for. Garcia takes a free kick early on, but Howard is right there to collect it. Long breakaway by the Crew sees a big collision between Howard and West as both go for the ball. Crowd boos the time wasting. Last chance for the Crew. Or not quite as they add another minute of time due to Howard's injury. Now we have the last chance. Ball rolls out of bounds, and on the throw in, it's over. Bob Bradley becomes the winningest coach in MLS history. Ohh la la!

MetroStars improve to 1-1-1 with 4 points.
Columbus falls to 2-1-1 with 7 points.

This doesn't really have anything to do with MLS, but I didn't want to start a new soccer thread because I figured any other soccer fans would read this one.

If you hadn't seen, Brad Friedel was named to the English Premier League's team of the year; the first time an American was named to that team. Follow this (soccernet.espn.go.com) for the article.

I'm a big soccer fan so thanks for the MLS recaps. I really enjoy your recaps, but I don't watch much MLS as I generally prefer the Mexican league. I get Fox Sports World at home so I also watch a lot of English Premier League matches. It goes without saying that I also try and catch all the UEFA Cup matches and international friendlies (especially if the U.S. or Mexico is involved).

Thus proving what we all knew all along: Brad Friedel IS Mick Foley.

Spencer? As in John Spencer? Formerly of Rangers, Chelsea et al? Little guy, brown hair, never shaves, known to his team-mates as 'sweaty sock'?

Is this the same man? I miss him. How's he doing over there?

Same guy, looks like he has had some recent injury problems. As far as updating you on the specifics on how he has played in the MLS, I'm sure Maniacal Clown can help you out more than I can.

Here is a link to his team bio page.

Thanks Corajudo.

Cant believe he's still only 32. I seem to remember going to see him play for Rangers when the streets were still cobbled and one could never get a horse and carraige to take one to the game when running late.

Who would have thought for three quarters, Rutgers of all teams could hang with Miami, and in fact totally outplayed them. Then of course Miami scored 28 points in the fourth to win it.
