Some were calling it "ugly soccer," but the San Jose Earthquakes could care less how others described their style. In fact, that "ugly soccer" resulted in 72 goals on the season -- the best total in San Jose franchise history and the third best total in MLS history.
It may be many months before the San Jose Earthquakes take the field again in a meaningful match, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy all the high-flying action they brought forth in the 2012 season. For starters -- and finishers -- try this compilation of all 72 goals the team scored during the 2012 MLS regular season. Yes, with that many goals on the season -- the third highest total in MLS history -- it is no wonder that the Earthquakes captured the Supporters' Shield this year.
