Lo Bueno, Malo y Bomba: Triunfan las Chivas de Wilmer Cabrera, DC United decepciona y Sebastián Fernández encanta a los Whitecaps
LO BUENO: El triunfo de las Chivas de Wilmer Cabrera
The opening weekend of 2014 produced exciting games of every type. Games in Vancouver, Houston, and D.C. were blowouts, but also gave us some highlight-reel goals. There were also nail-biters in Seattle, Portland and LA with last-second goals (or saves) shifting the outcome.
The Eastern Conference got the worst end of all this with only two teams emerging with a win, both of which came against fellow Eastern Conference foes. In the West, teams with new coaches got off to flying starts, as Chivas USA, Vancouver and FC Dallas collected all three points.
It didn’t take too long for Cristian “Chaco” Maidana to fit right in with his new teammates.

DENVER — It took about a quarter of a second for Pablo Mastroeni’s eyes to light up when he was asked who would be the Colorado Rapids’ captain in 2014. And the club's newly named head coach didn’t waste any time in appointing defender Drew Moor to continue to wear the armband.
Three Things: Crew make adjustments, Red Bulls fail chemistry and Landon on the left | Armchair Analyst
We're officially done wth MatchDay 1 of the 2014 MLS season, and each of the three teams I pegged as the favorites (LA, Sporting, Portland) looked various shades of impotent in dropping points. I don't know if John Hackworth made some sort of Faustian bargain to get his team all on the same page so quickly, or if Chad Barrett is the Cascadian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
CARSON, Calif. – The Chicago Fire couldn't have been more pleased by their comeback from a two-goal second-half deficit in their MLS opener Sunday afternoon at Chivas USA, which made the disappointment when their hosts netted a winner at the end all the more palpable.
Chivas USA in high spirits after toughing out late win, say "the page has been turned" for franchise
CARSON, Calif. – Chivas USA did two things Sunday they seldom did in 2013: win, and continue fighting after giving up a lead.
Chivas USA 3–2 Chicago Fire | Cubo Torres, Thomas McNamara y Bobby Burling lideran triunfo del Rebaño Angelino
Chivas USA inició con pie derecho el último año de la franquicia bajo dicho nombre, al derrotar 3-2 a Chicago Fire en un sufrido partido que tuvo en el defensa Bobby Burling al hombre decisivo quien marcó el gol que les aseguró el triunfo en casa.
Burling selló la victoria al minuto 88 al definir de cabeza un centro de Mauro Rosales tras el cobro de un tiro de esquina, y que el portero Sean Johnson no alcanzó a controlar.
