Given the recent successes of Hyndman’s sides at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the past two seasons, a victory in Denver was not out of the question. David Ferreira’s early second half finish - a solid one that was built up with solid combinations down the left flank – should have been an opening of the flood gates against Oscar Pareja’s Rapids.no comments
It’s a move that mirrors the league-leading upswing in attendance in Frisco, as well as the boost in local popularity and season ticket holders since 2010. FC Dallas Stadium is no more: Toyota Stadium is in.no comments
It was an offensive display to remember. Two goals were nominated for MLS Goal of the Week, one of which was from the half line, the other a volley that made one’s hair stand on end. Aside from rejoicing, the subsequent reaction could really have been: where has this been since May? But, FCD’s powerful attack broke down Western Conference rivals Vancouver at a time when wins, especially conference wins, are a must.no comments
With FCD’s winless streak no longer tormenting fans, players, and Schellas Hyndman alike, the team has its sights set on knocking rampant San Jose down a peg tonight in Frisco. A win for the visitors puts San Jose, a team with one of the worst starts to the 2013 season, level with Dallas, the fastest team out of the gate in 2013.
Hopefully you’re not still one of the 4.5%, 4.6%, 4.2%, or .8% of MLS Fantasy Soccer participants who still has David Ferreira, Jackson, Kenny Cooper, or even Fabian Castillo still in your lineup. For that matter, FCD didn’t even land a single shot on goal against Seattle last week. It’s almost been as difficult holding Michel or Raul Fernandez, given the fact that along with goals, shutouts have also dried up in the past five matches.no comments
#Deucewatch is over and there is no way Dempsey will feature tonight against FC Dallas.
There. I said it.
Someone still has his or her finger held firmly on the pause button in Frisco. What was the most dominant team in the West, let alone MLS, has hit the skids, falling from first to fifth in a matter of three weeks. Rivals have risen like the sea surrounding a slowly sinking ship. But how did FCD get to this point? What woes now torment the former best side in MLS?
