Previews aplenty for San Jose Earthquakes vs. New York Red Bulls
While a pair of nuts-and-bolts match previews are still forthcoming here at Center Line Soccer for Sunday’s match between the San Jose Earthquakes and New York Red Bulls, no fewer than four sources of great Quakes knowledge are already circulating around the Internet for your perusal.
Starting things off is a quick-hit of Quakes takes on the always entertaining Around the League podcast. Host Scott Bornstein knows his stuff and puts together a great weekly show. You could do a lot worse than making ATL a regular part of your podcast listening.
Speaking of podcasting, up second is the sophomore — or is that sophomoric? — episode of Center Line Soccer Radio’s Roundtable on the North American Soccer Network. This week’s show features four CLS personalities all lamenting the Earthquakes season opening loss to Real Salt Lake. Of course, it is not all gloom and doom for the panel, as clearly the inability to finish scoring chances by the Quakes was merely an aberration.
After you’ve listened to all that blabbering on and on, turn next to The Guardian’s MLS preview collection. Curated by Grantland.com’s excellent MLS writer Graham Parker — do check out his latest effort, a feature on RSL’s Kyle Beckerman — the weekly column is a great resource for opinions on all 19 teams around the league.
Lastly, at least for this week, and just in time for the weekend, is a 2013 MLS season beer-view presented by the fine folks at The Free Beer Movement. What local Bay Area brew best pairs with the San Jose Earthquakes? Take a quick read and decide if you agree or disagree.
The Earthquakes play host to the New York Red Bulls this Sunday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium. The game kicks off at 7:00 p.m. and is ESPN’s featured Game of the Week. Thierry Henry versus Chris Wondolowski? Now that should be special.
