Video: Chivas 3, Manchester United 2

With Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez playing a half for each side and scoring for his former club, Chivas ended Manchester United's North American tour on a sour note with a 3-2 decision at the new Estadio Omnilife:

I just read that New York released John Wolyniec. I always liked him and thought he was a decent player. Given our dearth of goalscoring, how about we pick him up?

Sour note. I suppose so. But given that it was a preseason friendly, and given that one of the goals against was scored by their new signing, it's more like a sweet and sour sauce.

c'mon Goff. Where's the Freddy Adu discussion?

@rightback,

The last thing United needs is *another* old, slow forward who can finish from time to time, but only if he gets great service.

Though, I have to hand it to Wolyniec. He's made a pretty respectable MLS career for himself, for a guy who looks as though he should be just an above average 2nd division talent.

Why would you sign him? He's like 56 years old.


Ok, not really, amofett had it right, but the grey hair thing really always gets me.

Jermaine Jones scored today for Shalke in a preseasoner against Hamburg.

How come nobody ever says, yeah sign him, he'll draw more grey-haired guys to the stadium? I feel marginalized

is that artificial turf? It looked like those little rubber bits bouncing up. Why would a rich team like that put in anything other than real grass?

So ManU played on a FieldTurf pitch? Or did they require actual grass to be put in for this match?

""Much is expected of Boskovic, 30, whose designated player contract is one of the largest in club history.""

Gallardo was what . . 2-3 million? Emilio was in the 500,000 range . . . so I'm guessing somewhere close to 500-650,000 for Branko?

If he's closer to Gallardo, then Emilio, I'm expecting a lot.

I was also surprised to see the fieldturf too.

Less surprising is Goff tweeting Rafa "Roja" Marquez will be introduced Tuesday by New York.

Does anyone remember Goff saying how he developed a liking for the local (actually Mozambican) spicy cuisine known as peri-peri? In Montreal it is known as kiri-piri, and can be found in the Portuguese enclave on rue Saint-Laurent. (Of course, it can also be found in D.C.'s Chinatown).

I didn't get to see Stade Saputo, but I did visit the nearby Jardins Botaniques, which I recommend. (The Impact gets pretty good coverage in the local papers.)

Oh, and they have a 5-cent tax on disposable shopping bags, just like the District.

That's why they signed Bompastor.
