    Of course Dallas takes the early lead on New England.

    I don’t know, but Austin - Columbus 1st half was better than Belgium - Portugal’s (other than the goal).

    Something about this FCD-NE match feels very MLS 1.0.
    Maybe it's the frenetic pace and sloppy play, the bros doing the TV play by play and color commentary, the godawful wrestling style PA announcer, the goal celebration music, or the lengthy PA announcements during the run of play. It's hard to watch knowing how far MLS has come since the early days.

    It's even more hilarious when they marketed as the "best pitch in Texas"

    Maybe a goal tonight in Austin really isn't meant to be. Zardes denied.

    Would not be surprising at all. Austin have exactly -5 goal scorers on their team. Columbus is organized and touch defensively. When Zelaryan isn't doing something magically, the Crew have struggled to score this season.

    The Crew can be summed up as the rest of MLS scouting them, and knowing how to at least limit the amount of touches Zelaryan gets in the final third, and the rest of the Crew isn't all that threatening. Santos is fairly meh as far as offensive talents in MLS go. Zardes isn't going to create his own chances. Valenzuela doesn't look to be back to 100% either, plus many MLS teams have much better attackers on his side of the field which keeps him from bombing forward as much as he did in the past.

    Austin needs a home goal badly, and Danny Dichio is only 46. Maybe they can sign him to the MLS equivalent of a ten day contract, he can head one in next week, and Austin can break its duck.

    What I don't get is that they laid down the sod back in October. Eight, going on nine months ago, and it's coming up like a cheap toupee.

    The more Alexi Lalas waxed poetic about how beautiful the pitch is, the more shots like this they showed.

    They have aspirations of hosting USMNT games, but that's just not going to happen until they can prove they have the turf issue sorted. Nobody is going to risk Christian Pulisic's ACL's on that crap. Least of all Christian Pulisic.
