Rapids-Whitecaps FC Preview

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J The Vancouver Whitecaps don’t need to win their season finale to make the playoffs, but coach Carl Robinson would prefer to see his team take care of business against the visiting Colorado Rapids on Saturday night. Vancouver (11-8-14) enters with 47 points, one ahead of Portland for the Western Conference’s fifth and final playoff berth. The Whitecaps can lock up that spot with a win or a Timbers loss at FC Dallas in a game that begins 1 1/2 hours before this one. Vancouver would also get in if both matches end in a draw.

Soccer-Wenger affords a smile as he remembers Battle of the Buffet

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J By Mike Collett LONDON, Oct 24 (Reuters) – Arsene Wenger often says he has no time to look back because he is so focused on the future but he spent a minute reminiscing on Friday on the 10th anniversary of the defeat to Manchester United that ended Arsenal’s famous 49-match unbeaten run. The match is not only memorable for United’s 2-0 win but also for what happened in the tunnel afterwards when an Arsenal player, believed to have been Cesc Fabregas but never confirmed, threw a pizza that hit the then-United manager Alex Ferguson in the face and slid down the front of his smart black suit. Between them they had won the previous nine Premier League titles, but Arsenal’s success in the 2003-04 season when they won 26 of their 38 matches and drew the other 12 was the standout achievement. One of the key moments in the run came at Old Trafford 13 months previously when the teams drew 0-0 in a match that featured a 25-man brawl, substitutes included, and Arsenal had Patrick Vieira sent off.
