The Three Biggest Winners1. Javier Morales and Real Salt Lake The one team that had a more impressive opening game than the Kansas City Wizards. The defending MLS champs destroyed San Jose and it was almost all Javier Morales. Maybe it's just that San Jose isn't that great, but I'm a believer in RSL. They might be a buzz saw. Read more. You have to see Morales' first goal, a 30-yard dipper. (It's about 1:30 in.) Goal of the year candidate? 2. The U.S. Women's national team The ladies in red, white and blue have now won 24 matches in a row after a 3-0 victory over Mexico. 3. Manchester United, Chelsea The two teams at the top of the English Premiership put some separation between themselves and everyone else. And did so in equally impressive form. Manchester United pumped four goals past Bolton and Chelsea swarmed Aston Villa for seven. With everyone on 32 games, Manchester United has 72 points, Chelsea has 71 and Arsenal is three back with 68. Manchester United highlights here. Chelsea highlights here. The other winners... American Steve Cherundolo ... Herculez Gomez (AGAIN?) ... New York Red Bulls ... Real Madrid.
Now for the losers...1. Manuel Alumnia Arsenal squandered points (and the second spot on the EPL table) with a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. Given the chance to either catch or punch a shot on goal, Alumnia chose the only other option and parried the shot over his head and into the back of the net.
Birmingham City 1 - 1 Arsenal

FC Dallas Kansas City has an excuse for only drawing 10,000 or so fans... they play in a minor league baseball stadium that only holds that many. What's Dallas' excuse for drawing a little more than 8,000? That number is down almost 50 percent from opening day in 2009. 3. Brad Friedel I hate blaming one of my favorite goalies of all time for anything and, surely, seven goals can't ALL be his fault. But some of them have to be his fault, right? The other losers... Toronto FC ... Curt Onalfo ... San Jose ... Juventus fans who decided to celebrate Easter early ... Inter Milan ... Bayern Munich
