Earth…. Quakes….

I’m guessing that nobody in the entire world saw this coming.

The Quakes are 7-1-1, have the best record in MLS (well, KC is 7-1…), have the scoring leader (Wando, of course, lead the league in goals scored, but most importantly have transmogrified from a really boring team into an exciting team.

They run around like crazy, really move the ball with pizzazz, and just generally seem to have a lot more energy and enthusiasm than they did for all of last year.

Perhaps most importantly, they’re getting contributions from throughout the lineup. Marvin Chavez, Tressor Moreno, Steven Beitashour, Justin Morrow, Shea Salinas, Khari Stephenson, Victor Bernardez, Steven Lenhart, Alan Gordon, and of course Wando have all had key contributions (goals / assists / great defense) – and that’s just in the games I’ve seen.

Aside from the clearly evident boost in overall team speed from last year, the other big difference so far this year has been the Quakes absolute domination of stoppage time, with 2 decisive wins recently. Last year, it was often the opposite, as the Quakes would run out of gas and give up a late goal to spoil an otherwise reasonable effort.

Keep it up!
