- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeSo J9 scores two goals, and the #Crew96 record will move to 9-9-9. NINES ALL AROUND!
- Columbus Crew@columbuscrewView photoWe feel the love. #Crew96
- Scott Gill-Jacobson@scottgjThe #Crew96 look decent against an uninspired Chivas. I'm cautiously optimistic about the playoffs, but there is still something missing.
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerI feel badly for Anor - it isn't often that you score a goal and yet still fall farther down the depth chart in your position #crew96
- Patrick Guldan@GuldanMRWith the 17,043 attendance number today, the season average for the #Crew96 is 16,318. Consistently strong.

- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeDespite letting in 3 goals, Kennedy has made some nice saves today. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew87': CHANCE - Arrieta nearly makes it four, but Kennedy is there to make the stop for the Goats. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeKennedy with a finger tip save on a fantastic turn and shoot play from Jimenez. tenth corner coming up. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew86': Pipa looks for Anor on the #Crew96 corner, but Kennedy darts out to punch it away.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeKennedy came flying out to punch the ball away, no real threat from #Crew96
- Massive Report@MassiveReport86' Francis sends a low cross in and it is deflected behind for another #Crew96 corner.
- Little MLS Blog@LittleMLSBlogNone of the #CLBvCHV 3rd-goal tweets mentioning that Kennedy appeared to forget where his line was. Anor will take the accolades, though.

- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondAfter being out since early July, it's nice to see Añor cap his comeback match with a well headed goal. #Crew96
- Chivas USA@cdchivasusa80' Goal for #Crew96 by Anor via header | Gol para Columbus en un cabezazo de Anor

- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew80': Tremendous passing play by the Black & Gold. Gehrig to Jimenez to Anor, who heads it in just over the line. #Crew96
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell80’ GOAL CREW! Bernardo Anor with a Powerful wide-open header, Dan Kennedy makes save but falls into net. 3-0 Crew. #Crew96

- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyHector Jimenez will be checking in for #crew96.
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellSo much space between Chivas USA defensive line and midfield line. Can’t understand why Pelletieri/Reo Coker don’t sit back. #ChivasUSA
- 69'DEric Gehrig (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the yellow card.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyThis is the first multi-goal game of Justin Meram's career, and he is subbed out in the 66th minute for Bernardo Anor. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew66': First change for #Crew96 as Gregg Berhalter brings Bernardo Anor on to replace today's two-time goal scorer, Justin Meram.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSThe Galaxy/Dynamo games showed what happens when #Crew96 can play both halves with the same intensity. The difference between good and great
- 66'MBernardo AnorMJustin Meram

- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyChivas USA has scored two or more goals only four times this season. Sigh of relief, #crew96 fans.
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderMeram's right foot is Arjen Robben's left foot. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreethat's seven on the season for Meram, closing in on team leader Higuain who has nine. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew59': Meram picks off a pass, walks in one-on-one, takes another touch to his right and curls it in AGAIN! Nearly identical finish! #Crew96
- Massive Report@MassiveReportPATTEN THAT SHOT MERAM! 2-0 #CREW96
- Matthew Doyle@MLSAnalyst"Take Meram out!" I said. Because I am smart. #CLBvCHV
- Patrick Guldan@GuldanMRThe Chivas midfield isn't good enough to push forward and carry the game. #Crew96 have them in a perfect spot.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyUm, Justin Meram scored again. 2-0 #crew96 in the 59th minute.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew59': GOAL #CREW96! Mirror image for J9!

- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew56': Great passing combination from Finlay to Gehrig to Higuain leads to a shot from outside the box for Pipa. Kennedy saves again. #Crew96
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell54’ BIG SAVE Kennedy on a great flicked header from Schoenfeld. Game is on the verge of opening up. #Crew96
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderOnce you break down a bunkering team once, you can usually open them up. #Crew96 look apt to bag a few more today.
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondAnd Schoenfeld nearly doubles #Crew96's lead with a superb headed effort... but Kennedy comes up with a nice save.
- SAVE: Dan Kennedy with another crucial stop on Higuain
- Major League Soccer@MLSView photo
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeCorner somehow skips through a flood of Crew players, goes out for a Chivas throw in. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSAaron Schoenfeld just had maybe the best #Crew96 header all season, but Kennedy got down to save it somehow. Things clicking for the Crew.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew54': CHANCE - #Crew96 starting to feel it. Schoenfeld heads on-goal and Dan Kennedy has to make a wonderful diving save.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew53': SUB - Wilmer Cabrera responds with the match's first substitution. Marvin Chavez replaces former #Crew96 man Ryan Finley.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_If you didn't see that coming when Meram got that ball with room, you haven't been watching #Crew96 soccer.
- SAVE: Dan Kennedy with a fine save on Schoenfeld
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew52': Justin Meram gets the ball just outside the box, cutting inside to his right. A patented curler ensues. 1-0 thanks to J9. #Crew96

- 52'1 - 0MGOAL: Justin MeramGoals this Season: 6
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderEric Gehrig was #Crew96's leader in touches in the first half. Building down the right.
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell49’ Higuain with a near post corner and the ball goes through the area, no one gets on the end of it. Great chance. #Crew96
- Trevor Edmonds@trevor__edmonds11View photoLets go columbus! #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeSecond half starts a lot like the first half ended- corner kick for the crew. #Crew96
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondSomething else to consider: should Higuaín be taking #Crew96 penalties any longer? His conversion rate from the spot has been iffy at best.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_#Crew96 doing their usual thing in terms of possession (54%) and passing (completing 83%) but the offense has struggled to get going.
- Darbs@tokenliberal#Crew96 need more energy and passion. Playing down to the competition.
- Drew Rauschenberger@catman_drewView photo#crew96 #columbustillidie
- Major League Soccer@MLSPENALTY SAVE - Federico Higuain slams the ball against the crossbar after Aaron Schoenfeld was taken down in the box. #CLBvCHV
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_I'm beginning to think Pipa just doesn't like taking PKs on that half. Has missed two this year down there. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeIt was a questionable PK to begin with, but #Crew96 need to capitalize on that. I suppose the best thing to say is ball don't lie.
- Evan Shannon@eshann27View photoGood try #crew96 You at least hit the crossbar #pk
- John Bava III@LWOS_JB3Could it be one of those days? Higuain misses a penalty at the end of the 1st half. #Crew96
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerThat was just poor all around from Higuain - especially the shoulder into the chest of Kennedy. #crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrewCORRECTION - Higuaín's penalty was directly into the woodwork. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeHiguain's PK hits the crossbar, he runs up to try and play the rebound, and he runs into the keeper, gets called for a foul. #Crew96
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellMISS! Higuain SLAMS the PK right off the crossbar, then commits foul on Kennedy. Still 0-0. Wasted opportunity. #Crew96
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondBuuuut... Higuaín puts his spot kick off the bar. And it's going to be that type of day. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew45': PENALTY SAVED - Pipa aims high and Kennedy sends it into the crossbar. Still 0-0. #Crew96
- Kirsten Heimlich @1morequietnightNot sure who that was a plenty but to be fair Crew had a good goal taken away a few minutes ago #CLBvCHV
- Chivas USA@cdchivasusa45' Penalty kick called in favor of #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeSchoenfeld was the one that drew the PK. #Crew96 44'
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondPenalty to #Crew96!
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreePK is called! #Crew96
- PK MISS: Federico Higuain hits the cross bar
- PENALTY: Ryan Finley concedes a penalty just before the half
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeKaji heads a cross out, so another corner for #Crew96 before the half ends. Don't expect much stoppage time.
- Chivas USA@cdchivasusa41’ #Crew96 pone el balón en contra de las redes pero una falta previa de Paladini a Kennedy mantiene el partido a ceros
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreePaladini was actually the one offside, not Schoenfeld. #Crew96 It was the right call, much to the crowd's dismay.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_#Crew96 showing signs here. They seem to need time to wake up this year, when they wake up.
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell41’ Offside call on Schoenfeld takes away what was the first goal of the match. Crew pressing though. #Crew96
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew41': #Crew96 GOAL DISALLOWED - Schoenfeld's goal is called off as Paladini collides with Kennedy inside the six yard box.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeAdding confusion to the play was the fact that Paladini ran into the goalie, which is what gave Schoenfeld the open net. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeCrowd thinks its a goal as Schoenfeld puts it in the back of the net, but is offsides. No goal. #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSWeird sequence. Looked like Schoenfeld had a goal, but Paladini is ruled offside in the buildup. #Crew96 looking dangerous for once.
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondAnd just as I say that, Schoenfeld lays a good cross in for Finlay... but it's just a bit too far in front of him. Best look for #Crew96 yet
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew40': CAUTION - Chivas USA's Jean-Baptiste is booked for taking down Schoenfeld. Still 0-0. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeJean-Baptiste picks up a yellow in the 40' for a foul on Schoenfeld. Easy call for the ref. #Crew96
- 40'DAndrew Jean-Baptiste (CD Chivas USA) is shown the yellow card.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_That #Crew96 chance was a complete reversal of roles. Schoenfeld crossing to Finlay who found himself on the left side of the field.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeHey Higuain, if the ref doesn't call a foul, the ball is actually still in play, and you shouldn't stop trying. #Crew96
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondIf anything is going to happen offensively for #Crew96, they've got to get some decent service in from wide positions...particularly backs.
- Casually Obsessed@AmericanCasual1View photo
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell38’ Best chance of the game from #Crew96. Higuain to Schoenfeld, who passes across the face of goal, but too far for Finlay.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew37': CHANCE - Pipa finds a streaking Schoenfeld up the sideline. The #BigCelery's cross is just ahead of an open Finlay in front of net.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferree#Crew96 attack has picked up in the last 5 minutes. Looks like they really want one before the half. 38' 0-0
- CHANCE: Aaron Schoenfeld's quick cross nearly finds Finlay
- Massive Report@MassiveReport36' #Crew96 earn a corner after zipping the ball around a bit. Francis crosses it in to the back post and it is headed behind.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeA cross is headed out by Chivas, so #Crew96 will get their second corner of the game. Set piece may be the only way they find the net.
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_No, the internet is working fine in the #Crew96 press box. There's just little to talk about in this game.
- InWoodbridge@inwoodbridgeIt appears that a new owner could have success with #ChivasUSA. They have a hard working team and just need a carefully selected DP or two.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeI did not think this would be the LA team that #Crew96 had trouble scoring against.
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell31’ #Crew96 might want to start pumping long balls forward. Current strategy isn’t paying off.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyAny time the Crew crosses midfield, there are eight Chivas players defending the goal. This has been a bad situation for #crew96 this year.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeA lot of final-third throw ins in this game so far. #Crew96
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_It's a lazy Sunday approach thus far for #Crew96. Not that they're lazy, but this game just has that feel so far.
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarellFinal pass just missing from the #Crew96 attack today. Missing the necessary energy and focus.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLS@Theretofore Nah. I can't see them scoring in this one. A 0-0 draw wouldn't necessarily surprise me though.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeKaji takes a final-third throw in, and just plays a game of catch with Clark who jumps up to get the ball. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeChivas first shot of the game that actually requires a save, albeit an easy one as it was right at Clark. #Crew96 0-0 23'
- WrongSideOfThePond@wrongsideofpondI'm not keeping track, but I'd wager #Crew96's passing completion rate can't much higher than 65%. Passes have seemed a yard off or so.
- Jim Q. Public@JimQPublicPaladini is doing fine, but no substitute for Tchani's physical presence in the middle. #Crew96
- farooqaloops@farooqaloopsView photoNothing cures the buckeye football blues than the #columbuscrew #crew96 #gorgeousday #sundayfunday
- SHOT: Nigel Reo-Coker's chance tests Steve Clark early
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew19': Meram wins a free kick from the left side and Higuain takes again. He searches for Wahl at the far post, but it's just high. #Crew96
- Daniel Karell@DanielKarell#ChivasUSA much better attacking down the right side. Kaji getting forward very well.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeMeram is fouled about 6 yards away from the corner flag. Interesting set piece opportunity for #Crew96
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderGeorge and Paladini both over 90% passing thus far. Filling the Trapp/Tchani roles well. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeSchoenfeld gets another foul in the 16'. He is the only #Crew96 player with a foul so far.
- John Rongyos@johnrongyosView photo#LucaKnowsHeart #crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreePaladini tries to psych out the wall, but it doesn't work. Higuain takes the kick, hits it into the wall, Chivas get possession. #Crew96
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderBerhalter has also mentioned his side has a tougher time against that type of opponent. Let's see if #Crew96 can break down the Goats today.
- Ryan Schwepfinger@Crew_InsiderGregg Berhalter has talked about teams bunkering in against his side vs. teams that like to play. I'd expect #ChivasUSA to be the former.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew12': Nice aggressive play by Clark to come off his line to his left to claim a ball before Reo-Coker gets to it. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeClark comes out and snags a ball right at the edge of the box from the feet of Reo-Coker. #Crew96
- Brett Stewart@Stewz26Paladini is flying around the pitch early in! #Crew96
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSSleepy start to this one. Chivas aren't too threatening, but #Crew96 don't seem too interested in pushing the issue either.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeA point today would not get #Crew96 back in a playoff position. Need a full 3 to climb back above the thin red line.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew10': Wonderful pass from Pipa to lead Finlay down the right side. Ethan tries to cross it in, but it's deflected out. #Crew96
- John Bava III@LWOS_JB3Berhalter decides to start Shoenfeld up front today; Bedell hasn't been impressive the last few games. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeNothin doin on that Crew Corner. Kennedy played it well. #Crew96
- Chivas USA@cdchivasusa8' First corner kick of the game for #Crew96. Ball goes straight into the hands of Kennedy
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew8': First corner kick of the match as Higuain hits an in-swinger. Kennedy comes out well to claim it, however. #Crew96
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeCorner kick coming up for #Crew96. 8' 0-0
- Stuart Coulson@stewy9027View photoBeautiful day for the beautiful game #Crew96
- John Bava III@LWOS_JB3Must win for #Crew96 vs Chivas at home today; currently 7th in East; a win would put them in 4th.
- Columbus Crew@ColumbusCrew6': Higuain tries a cross-field through pass but it's too far ahead of Finlay. #Crew96 controlling play thus far (65.5% possession).
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_A collision of Baptiste and Schoenfeld comes away with a #ChivasUSA free kick and Schoenfeld holding his mouth.
