US Open Cup Roundup

David Beckham's future club continued its season of misery with a US Open Cup defeat to the Richmond Kickers of USL-2 (the third division of American soccer). The Houston Dynamo, the defending MLS Cup Champion were upset by the Charleston Battery, a USL club that traditionally has been strong in the Open Cup. The Battery will now face FC Dallas in the Quarterfinals. New England used two stoppage time goals to defeat Rochester 4-2, and Colorado defeated the expansion California Victory of USL 3 to 1 to advance to the quarterfinals. Rochester's defeat in the Round of 16 equaled the earliest Open Cup exit for the Rhinos in the past ten years.

If the Galaxy win Superliga maybe you'll drop all this negativity towards them.

Well, according to you, they are the signature franchise of MLS.

It's not necessarily being negative to say they suck because right now they do - that's called analysis.
