Worst Offense Ever

Last year, RSL scored only 30 goals in 32 games for an average of 0.94. That's the record for the worst MLS offense ever. One year later, two teams have a chance to break that record:

2006 CLB 0.79
2005 RSL 0.94
2006 LA 0.96

LA probably won't do it, but Columbus seems like a sure thing. In order to NOT have sole posession of the record, the Crew need to score 8 goals in their last 4 games. Given the way their current strike force has performed, I would be shocked if that happened. When a guy from the German third division can come in and start right away, it's not a good sign. Also, when nobody on your team has more than 3 goals...not good. They never should've traded Buddle.

Columbus (currently: 22 goals)

23-Sep HOU
30-Sep DAL
7-Oct @ CHI
14-Oct @ NE

Los Angeles (currently: 27 goals)

23-Sep @ CHI
30-Sep CHV
7-Oct @ DAL
14-Oct DAL

Don't you go dissin' Jacob Thomas.;)

Seriously, I love the guy, but mostly because I watched him start his career with the Austin Lone Stars. The only Austin player (well, apparently, kind-of Austin player) in MLS.

So I loved watching him play. Makes me a little sad that he didn't get his chances earlier here. Always thought he had the ability.

But I'm biased.:)

Thomas is alright. I was referring to Ryan Coiner.
