Around MLS: Week 3 Open Match Thread

New, 12 comments
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Week three and Major League Soccer is still going. After two weeks, we still have no clue who is good, who is bad, and who is going to have their game decided by questionable refereeing.

Of course, you can always check out our power rankings or our MLS recaps to find out what is going on around the league, but if you want to watch the games yourself, check out our list of matches below.

Saturday

New England Revolution vs. Montreal Impact

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 12:00 pm pacific at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA

Match Rating: 2/5

Two teams from the east without a point between them play in Massachusetts where it is expected to be snowing tomorrow? Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Of course, New England should not be this bad and this could be the game where they either step up or confirm to us all that they are just no good without Jermaine Jones and A.J. Soares.

Colorado Rapids vs. New York City FC

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 1:00 pm pacific at Dicks Sporting Goods Stadium in Commerce City, CO

Match Rating: 3/5

New York City could be good. David Villa is definitely good. Mix Diskaruud is probably good. Jason Kreis seems to know what he is doing even without Kyle Beckerman and Javier Morales.

Philadelphia Union vs. FC Dallas

*postponed from Friday due to inclement weather.

Watch it on: Univision Deportes (UDN)

Kickoff: 1:00 pm pacific at PPL Park in Chester, PA

Match Rating: 3/5

If anything can stop the Dallas attack it is Philadelphia. Not the Union, mind you, but the weather in Philadelphia, which caused this match to be delayed from Friday to Saturday. Blas Perez and company are a scary team to face right now and the Union defense has not exactly shown itself to be rock solid despite a week one shutout of a very suspect Colorado Rapids side.

Orlando City SC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps

Watch it on: MLS Live

Kickoff: 4:30 pm pacific at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, FL

Match Rating: 4/5

Orlando and Vancouver are two teams with some exciting players that have yet to really put things together. If either can then this could be a very interesting game despite being the furthest a team could travel for a match in MLS at just over 2600 miles.

LA Galaxy vs. Houston Dynamo

Watch it on: ROOT Sports

Kickoff: 7:30 pm pacific at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA

Match Rating: 2/5

The Galaxy may be their perennially solid selves, but neither they nor they Dynamo have been particularly enthralling to watch so far this season. That could change when Steven Gerrard and Erick "Cubo" Torres arrive in the league, but for now this one is decidedly "meh".

Sunday

New York Red Bulls vs. D.C. United

Watch it on: ESPN2

Kickoff: 2:00 pm pacific at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ

Match Rating: 4/5

Two teams that were toward the front of the pack in the East last season and who remain solid contenders in the league's crappier conference? Something about this game just sounds like it could be pretty darn good. Plus, it is kinda-sorta a rivalry.

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chicago Fire

Watch it on: FOX Sports 1
