MLS Weekend Wrap Up and Midweek Predictions

To quote another famous writer, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" for the MLS this weekend.  The best of times were on Saturday night which featured a showdown between two of the best teams in the league, Los Angeles and New York.  Each team is led by a superstar, Landon Donovan for LA and Thierry Henry for New York. Both Henry (video) and Donovan (video) scored in the match which ended up in a 1-1 draw. 

The worst of times featured a serious injury to Real Salt Lake midfielder Javier Morales.  Hopefully the casual fans who tuned in for the LA/New York match didn't also watch the three 0-0 draws that were played earlier in the day.

There are three midweek games on Wednesday.  Here are my predictions for the trio:

Philadelphia 1 Los Angeles 0
FC Dallas 3 Toronto FC 1
Vancouver 2 San Jose 2

After the jump I will review my predictions from last weekend.

Yikes!  Only eight goals scored in seven matches.  MLS and MLB now have scoring droughts in common.  I predicted 2 of 7 outcomes correctly but no final scores.
