Dallas's mission for 2010: To not win any games this season, but still finish higher than last place. DC United is giving them some help with that. The Revolution's goal was a bit of a gift from Dario Sala, but give a lot of credit to Zach Schilawski for beating his defender to the ball and finishing. Dude can score.
This match wasn't even as close as the scoreline. The closest thing to a KC highlight was Davy Arnaud's red card. This one could have easily ended 5-0 or 6-0 if not for some nice goalkeeping from Nielsen. Luis Angel Landin is finally generating some chemistry with his teammates. When I see foreign acquisitions adjusting well to the league, I get jealous.
The Fire should be happy with themselves for earning a point at home, because its more than many of us expected. This match was as even as the final score. I'm not sure which team that says more about. In other news, when I see good goalkeeping I get jealous.
Benching Julian de Guzman I get. But benching the only productive player on your team I don't. Any surprise that TFC didn't score until after DeRo came on? Not to beat a dead horse here on SBN, but I wasn't too impressed with the broadcasting after Alvaro Saborio scored with his hand. "The goal is good, and who was booked?" No, the goal definitely wasn't good. Hmm, maybe you should let the home fans booing give you a little indication there pal?
What's the story here? Is it Chris Wondolowski going from nobody to goal of the week candidate? Or is it the Earthquakes shutting out the team that was the highest scoring side in MLS going into the weekend?
When I see a team handily beating a clearly inferior opponent, I get jealous. And when I see a fullback from Maryland streaking up the field and putting in the effort to score, I get even more jealous. And then when I see Edson Buddle being Edson Buddle, my head explodes.
With all that fire power starting, shouldn't Seattle have scored at least once in the final 86 minutes? Predictably, their fans blame the refs in a game that was called pretty fairly from my vantage point. As much as I hate to say it though, this team does have the talent to go far if they can figure out how to leverage it into wins.
