New England Revolution no piensa en la despedida de Landon Donovan, pero sí en levantar su primer título
There is a persistent fiction about LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena, one that's been around at least since his first spin at the head of the US national team.
Bruce, the kids say, is married to the 4-4-2. He is king of the 1-0 result, a cautious and dour master of futebol de resultados at the expense of pretty much anything resembling aesthetic achievement. He is regressive, reactionary and refuses to experiment. "BunkerBall" is a pejorative that many in US soccer fandom instead call "BruceBall."
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Somewhere on Duke men’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski’s coaching tree is a rogue branch, set off from all the former pupils of the legendary basketball coach who have gone on to become hoop mentors themselves.
Surprisingly, that branch is in the world of soccer – not basketball. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it has bore fruit.
CARSON, Calif. – The end has come for Landon Donovan.
The US soccer legend will play his final professional game Sunday when his LA Galaxy take on the New England Revolution in the MLS Cup final at StubHub Center (3 pm ET on ESPN, UniMas, UDN, TSN1, RDS2).
It's starting to sink in.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution will step into the lion’s den when they hit the pitch for MLS Cup on Sunday at StubHub Center.
The host LA Galaxy have been nearly unstoppable at home this season, posting a 15-1-4 record in all competitions at StubHub Center, with the lone loss coming all the way back in the season opener on March 8.
The StubHub Center has been a veritable fortress for the LA Galaxy this season and now they get to play the most important game of the season in their home building on Sunday (3 pm ET on ESPN, UniMas, UDN, TSN1, RDS2).
