The Full 90

The weekend's winners and losers

At the end of each weekend, The Full 90 will scour the soccer world and bring you the weekend's biggest winners and the biggest losers.Included in today's round-up: Herculez Gomez, the US Women's team, the best team in the MLS, the blue boys in London and the red ones in Manchester, the worst attended team in the MLS, goalkeeper gaffes/apologies and more after the jump.

The Three Biggest Winners

1. 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

.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

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.

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
