MLS over Man U and Man City!

I'm baaaaaaaaack! Took a few weeks off to breathe (and go on safari!) after the World Cup -- will post a few photos -- but now it's time to keep things going here on the soccer blog. Just because the World Cup is over doesn't mean the fun is over...MLS going on, European and South American leagues will be starting soon, Champions League ,etc..

Did you see that the NY Red Bulls beat Manchester City 2-1? And Kansas City, in front of 52,000 fans at Arrowhead Stadium, knocked off Man U 2-1 despite being down a man for the majority of the game? Does this mean anything? Can we deduce anything from those results? Tell us what you think. I will post a poll asking the same question.

In other MLS news, Thierry Henry, he of the infamous handball, is now playing for the Red Bulls. And there are rumors that Ronaldinho could wind up with the LA Galaxy. You think MLS will benefit from the World Cup buzz that overtook the USA this summer? Share your thoughts.

Its funny that those results never made it as far as the UK, we never even knew they were playing abroad in the US, was it definitely the 1st 11 or was it a reserve or U21 squad perhaps?

Some young guys for sure, some vets. Here is the report from the ManU website...
United suffered a first defeat of the North America tour in Kansas City, albeit with major doubts over the legitimacy of Kei Kamara’s winner for the Wizards.

Kamara had earlier set up his captain Davy Arnaud to fire the home side ahead, before Dimitar Berbatov’s penalty - following another debatable decision by referee Terry Vaughn who controversially sent off Jimmy Conrad for his part in the incident - drew the Reds level. Kamara then headed Ryan Smith’s corner past young United goalkeeper Ben Amos, but even TV replays were inconclusive as to whether the whole ball crossed the line.

The 2-1 victory for Kansas City Wizards delighted large sections of the 52,000 crowd at the impressive Arrowhead Stadium, home of the local American football outfit, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Sir Alex Ferguson opted to field a relatively young side, including the likes of Ben Amos, Ritchie De Laet and Mame Biram Diouf, but ensured there was a sprinkling of experience with Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Dimitar Berbatov all starting. Nani made his first appearance of the tour having recovered from the collarbone injury which kept him out of the World Cup

These were just friendly games!
