Sunday’s show was a two-headed game of the week. First we discuss Seattle 1-1 Portland, and the much-hyped Pacific Northwest rivalry’s arrival in Major League Soccer. Look out Yankees vs Red Sox? We discuss the merits of Seattle goalscorer Alvaro Fernandez, and ask whether Portland’s goal was a great ball in from Jack Jewsbury, or some uncharacteristically poor goalkeeping from Kasey Keller.
Second game was the big Eredivisie title decider, where Ajax needed to beat Twent to win their first Dutch league title in seven years, and Oguchi Onyewu’s FC Twente needed only a draw to win their second in a row. Despite Theo Janssen’s best efforts, Ajax did the business and won 3-1, with two goals from the impressive Siem De Jong.

It’s a triple-headed game of the week show: FC Twente’s 2-0 win over PSV, Milan’s 3-0 win over Inter, and TSS’s heartbreaking 3-2 defeat in the CVSA.
Disclaimer: The Total Soccer Show is based in Richmond, Virginia. The four co-hosts all live in Richmond, Virginia. Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) is also based in Richmond, Virginia. So, the obvious game to watch this weekend would be the Final Four match-up of VCU v Butler on Saturday night, with tipoff coming at 6:09pm. However, if you’re looking for some soccer coverage to balance out the weekend, then look no further because there is an absurd amount of good soccer on television this weekend. There are at least 43 games on TV this weekend, including two international tournaments, one international friendly, and matches in 10 different leagues.
