The Columbus Crew have had their share of injuries this season.

One of the wounded, include 29-year-old midfielder Daniel Paladini.

Last week, the Crew announced that the Northridge, California native had underwent successful surgery for internal fixation for a tibia and fibula fracture.

Paladini has begun recovery and is out for the remainder of the 2014 MLS season. He will be sidelined a total of 16 weeks.

The injury was suffered during a practice session. The operation was performed by surgeon Dr. Corey L. Van Hoff, M.D. at Ohio Health’s Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus on Tuesday, September 16.

A seasoned MLS veteran, Paladini has also played for the LA Galaxy, Chivas USA and the Chicago Fire.

Being from Northridge, California, he stayed home to play for Cal State-Northridge of the Big West Conference. In 2005, he was named Midfielder of the Year by that conference.

Crew dominates Toronto FC, 2-0 to win Trillium Cup; Higuain scores twice again to put team back in playoff hunt

A few weeks ago, the Columbus Crew were 10 points out of playoff contention and the fans wanted the management to fire head coach Robert Warzycha.

Now after a couple of shutout victories over New York and Toronto FC, the fans are happy again and the team is back in the playoff hunt.

The reason for the turnaround is the play of Federico Higuain, who the past two seasons is the new Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Higuain can score from anywhere on the field if his teammates give him the ball. Teams have to account for his whereabouts at all time. Playing with the Crew’s other scoring threat Dominic Oduro, the field opens up for goals to be scored.

Higuain, the 28-year-old Argentinian as the team’s captain has taken over the last few games by scoring four goals and has given Crew fans a hope for the playoffs.

The Crew with 29 points, trail only New England and Chicago for the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

Saturday’s win allowed the Crew to win their fifth Trillium Cup in six years in the rivalry with Toronto FC.

The triumph also allowed Warzycha to tie his former coach, Tom Fitzgerald (1996-2001) at 70 wins as a Crew head coach. The 70th win makes Warzycha one of only 14 MLS coaches to achieve the plateau and four are active: Sigi Schmid (Seattle), Jason Kreis (Real Salt Lake), Bruce Arena (LA Galaxy) and Dominic Kinnear (Houston).

David Beckham has done a lot of great things for his native England.

He was a star in the English Premier League, Manchester United and Real Madrid and he helped London secure the 2012 Olympic games which will be coming up next month.

Did his country repay him?

No, they didn’t!

The former England captain failed to make the British Olympic soccer team, which is a surprise to everyone all around the world.

The 37-year-old LA Galaxy star says, “I’ll still be the biggest supporter of the team!”

Late substitute Chad Barrett stunned the Crew with a goal in the third minute of stoppage time to give the LA Galaxy a  1-0 win before a sellout crowd of 21,203 Saturday at Crew Stadium.

Crew holds onto first-place with 3-1 win over New England; James, Renteria star

During this past winter, fans, media and followers of the Columbus Crew were thinking this would be a rebuilding season with the team releasing and trading away so many veterans.

I guess the management knew what they were doing as the team is still an MLS Cup contender.

The Crew, the best second-half team in Major League Soccer this season, proved its resiliency again on Saturday night, overcoming a goal by Benny Feilhaber in the 45th minute of the first half and scored three of its own in the second half for a 3-1 victory over the New England Revolution at Crew Stadium.

The Crew (10-7-7, 37 points) remained on top of the Eastern Conference with the win, and improved to an impressive 2-0-4 record when trailing at the half this season.

Second-place Philadelphia (8-5-10, 34 points) played FC Dallas to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

The Crew and the Philadelphia Union will battle next Saturday, August 20 at Crew Stadium for first-place.

The Revs, a team the Crew used to have trouble with game-after-game in years past, dropped to 4-11-9.

An own goal off the shin of New England defender Kevin Alston in the 54th minute opened the Crew’s scoring.

Julius James earned his first goal of the season in the 75th minute on a header off a corner kick from Josh Gardner.

Emilio Renteria easily scored his fifth goal of the season in the 81st minute on an unmarked finish from six yards out after midfielder Robbie Rogers set up the goal.

GAME NOTES:

* The Crew are 7-1-4 at home this season.

* James’ goal was his first in Black & Gold and the fourth of his career.

* Dilly Duka made his first appearance since June 4. His assist was his third of the season.

* The game-tying goal own goal was the club’s 700th in franchise history. The Crew is the fourth MLS team to score 700 goals joining DC United, the LA Galaxy and FC Dallas.

* A nice crowd attended the game, 13,041 under partly cloudy skies and 83 degrees.
