MLS Heats Up

Hey you beautiful guys and gals, welcome back to my sports and fitness blog. Thanks you to our regular readers for coming back, and to the new readers welcome! Major League Soccer is becoming more and more popular in the United States and Canada, and an impressive win by FC Dallas over the ever popular LA Galaxy is set to make the league an even bigger competition this year. This is after an impressive preseason by Dallas and a very impressive season last year that saw the team capture the Supporters Shield and the US Open Cup. This year they are expected to compete for the one major title the missed last year, the MLS Cup. After the showing they had against Galaxy last week, they seem to be worthy of such rumors.

 

While Dallas did not dominate the game in the way someone expected to be in the championship is supposed to, they manages to have a strong game against an equally strong opponent. LA did have a fairly sizeable possession advantage throughout the game, but that make the 2-1 victory over the Galaxy even more impressive. Dallas also managed this win despite not having playmaker Mauro Diaz thanks to Achilles Tendon surgery and keeping his replacement Javier Morales on the bench after he played all 90 minutes during the team’s CCL encounter on Wednesday.  How do you guys think FC Dallas will do this year in MLS? I normally like to cheer for Toronto FC but if Dallas is able to keep the Galaxy from dominating every year I will happily cheer them on. Hope you all enjoyed this piece, and be sure to be here next week for our new post.

Sanchez to Leave Arsenal

Hello lads and lasses welcome back to my sports and fitness blog. I got a bit of news for you today out of the Premiere Leagues- Is it all over for Alesix Sanchez and Arsenal? It seems like it might be , after the Chilean international is on his way out after some heated battles with Arsene Wenger. Wenger decided to bench Sanchez, the Gunners top scorer during the team’s Saturday defeat at the hands of Liverpool and only brought him in after the game was decided in the second half. Sanchez has made it fairly clear that he wants out, and it seems that the French team Paris Saint Germain would be the leading candidates for a new contract.

It seems this is has been in the works for a while, ever since the 5-1 thrashing at Bayern Munich. Wenger thinks the moe will benefit the squad, who even though they will be losing their top scorer will hopefully gain more harmony in the dressing room. Wenger claims the forwards attitude in training has been questionable at most, and that Sanchez has become increasingly difficult to manage. Sanchez’s current contract will expire this summer and reports have mentioned a new deal worth 180,000 pounds a week  from Arsenal, where as Paris Saint-Germain is rumored to be offering around 300,000 a week. Judging by Sanchez’s statements earlier this week it seems unlikely that he will accept the offer from Arsenal, And although Paris Saint-Germain is the front-runner Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also reportedly in contract talks with the 28 year old forward. Who he does sign with is still up in the air, but don’t expect him to be in red and white next year.

Roger’s Sports and Fitness Blog

Hello everyone, My name is Roger and this is my sporting blog, Sporty Hythe. I used to work as a sports writer for my hometown newspaper until I moved to the big city and have been looking for a good outlet for my creativity ever since. I was used to covering the local football matches when I was writing for the paper so I think that will be a major part of this blog, although it will be a lot more Premier league matches and not the local beer league teams (although those are still amazing).
My parents and coaches used to tell me I was a natural athlete, and I believed them until I started competing at a higher level in my teens and stopped growing. Sometimes you just get to a point where you realize that you can’t compete at a high level, and rather than blaming it on something that you can’t really control (ie height) I found it better to take a step back from sports and focus on other aspects, leading me to writing for the paper  which lead me to here. I hope that you enjoy all the things I post, and thanks again for checking us out!
