1.) BRADLEY GETS FIRST PREMIER LEAGUE WIN
Swansea out-fired Crystal Palace 5-4 in a match they almost blew.
Up 3-1 the Swans gave up three consecutive goals including one in stoppage time to go down 4-3 on a day of “amateur hour” defending.
Amazingly, Fernando Llorente then score two of his own in stoppage time to win it 5-4.
Insanity and the kind of match managers could only stare in disbelief. Who cares? Bradley gets his first.

3.) MOST COLLECTIVE SOUNDERS TEAM EVER/MORRIS
Despite injuries and missing star Clint Dempsey, Seattle extracted Colorado from the playoffs 3-1 on egg.
Jordan Morris who has been outstanding, scored the lone goal yesterday 1-0 at Colorado in front of a packed crowd.
This time has the most “collective’ feel I have seen of a Sounders team and credit must go to coach Brian Schmetzer.
Has the absence of Clint Dempsey galvanized the Sounders? Has it presented opportunity for others to step up?
