Hucks: Big impact in the MLS

Some of you will remember how upset old Bigus was when Darren Huckerby was released from Norwich City. Some of you will even remember a post about him joining the worst team in the MLS. Some of you used our comments section here and on other posts and sites to doubt the impact of the aforementioned Darren Huckerby... well, I am pleased to offer a little update. Huckerby has played 3 games, scored twice and looked impressive.

Yesterday Hucks lined up against Beckham as his new team hosted the LA Galaxy in front of 26,071 footy-thirsty Californians. Most left knowing exactly what Huckerby has to offer the M.L.S. In fact he left Beckham firmly in the shadows as he put in an excellent performance and scored a typical 'Huckerby' goal: a run down the left, cut inside, right foot shot. A quick look at the Earthquakes website this morning reveals Darren also dominates the man of the match voting online for the third straight week, currently taking 69% of the vote!

Please find the highlights of yesterday's game (in Spanish) below for your Monday afternoon entertainment.

San Jose have looked a much-improved team in recent weeks, as the arrival of Lima, Huckerby and Alvarez has made all the difference. The Earthquakes are still bottom of the West but now they're only 5 points behind the Galaxy! If the good form continues (unbeaten in 4) and they can build on yesterday's win, they will be chasing a playoff spot.

I think there is just one thing left to say...


- Bigus.
