  1. CHIVAS: Sounders end Open Cup dream

    Scott French

    Chivas USA's quest for a trophy ended the same place its last real quest met its end, where every quest, at least for this trophy, seems to come to a close. The Goats ran into the Seattle Sounders in Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup semifinals, and if th...

  2. Ching's emotions in check vs. Dynamo

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Brian Ching's first game against his former Houston Dynamo teammates started with a warning. His one-time (and again) nemesis Bobby Boswell told him before kickoff: "Make sure you wear your shinguards." Ching's response: "Are you sure I ...

  3. CHIVAS USA: Lahoud looks for his role

    Scott French

    Michael Lahoud's best quality, among many, is probably his versatility, and that could mean he's a man without a position of his own when Chivas USA opens its campaign come March. He's a natural midfielder, nearly any slot, who last year received ...

  4. CHIVAS USA: Preseason 2012 quick look

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Chivas USA's preparations for the 2012 season began with medical exams Sunday and moves onto good, old Field 6 at Home Depot Center on Monday morning, with head coach Robin Fraser welcoming a lot of new faces -- and not all of them, by any ...

  5. CHIVAS USA: A work in progress

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Robin Fraser is nothing if not a realist, so when he reflects on his first campaign in charge of Chivas USA, what comes to mind isn't the steps that have been taken, the foundation that has been constructed, the path that has been cleared. ...

  6. Valentin loss has dimensions

    Scott French

    Seems pretty wasteful to let the No. 4 overall pick in last January's draft, an outside back with the potential to become a star (and maybe for the national team, too), slip away for nothing. Zarek Valentin's departure from Chivas USA in Major Leagu...

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Chivas USA played one of the bigger roles in Major League Soccer's expansion draft, surrendering three players and picking up a new right back. First-year right back Zarek Valentin, the No. 4 overall selection in last January's MLS SuperDr...

  8. CHIVAS USA: Season ends with a win

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Chivas USA wrapped up its season Friday with a 3-1 victory in a "closed-door" friendly against the L.A. Blues -- with a few dozen fans and some media watching, no problem, from the bluff above the Goats' practice field at Home Depot Center....

  9. CHIVAS USA: Goats make a statement

    Scott French

    Whether Chivas USA makes it into Major League Soccer's playoffs -- and the smart money says no -- it's 3-0 win Saturday night at Home Depot Center over Toronto FC says plenty about how far the club has come this season. It was a statement victory,...

  10. CHIVAS USA: Angel's goals keep hopes alive

    Scott French

    Juan Pablo Angel's struggles are definitely in the past. The tall Colombian forward scored two more goals Saturday night as Chivas USA kept its slim postseason hopes going with a 3-0 rout of Toronto FC at Home Depot Center. Angel scored in the 12t...

  11. CHIVAS USA: Goats drop fourth in a row

    Scott French

    Chivas USA's fading playoff hopes aren't officially dead yet, but give it just a little more time. The Goats' disastrous stretch of late season hit a new low point Saturday, when they battled back from another horrid start only to lose at the fini...

  12. CHIVAS USA: Timbers push past Goats

    Scott French

    As far as Chivas USA has progressed in its first season under Robin Fraser, and as impressive as the Goats often have been -- especially when they get their possession game going -- Wednesday's loss exposed an ugly truth. After 26 games, Chivas si...

  13. CHIVAS: Braun puts Goats in playoff mix

    Scott French

    CARSON -- A new formation -- or, rather, an old one revisited -- and a spectacular night from Justin Braun has put Chivas USA in postseason position. No kidding. Braun's second hat trick of the season, on three superbly taken goals, delivered a co...

  14. CHIVAS: No shots, no goals, a waved-off PK

    Scott French

    CARSON -- Chivas USA didn't manage to put one shot on target, and here they were, on the verge of victory. For a few seconds, at least. Then referee Mark Kadlecik conferred with his linesman, and the penalty kick he'd awarded the Goats in the 90th...

  15. CHIVAS USA: Goats understand what works

    Scott French

    Chivas USA's decision last week to test some tactical alternatives -- and then discard them before trying them out in a game -- could prove to be a masterstroke by rookie head coach Robin Fraser. His Goats, he says, are "starting to form an identi...

  16. CHIVAS USA: Goats look to stay positive

    Scott French

    Chivas USA knew there would be hiccups as Robin Fraser and his staff built a new team almost from scratch, and the past 7.5 weeks -- since the stirring victory May 15 at New York -- has been a struggle. The Goats have won just once in eight games and ...
