Looking at the Western Conference, it's not beautiful viewing at the moment, but it's still very early to worry. Of FC Dallas' first 9 games, six of them have come against current top 10 MLS teams, tied for the most in the league up to this point. What I think we can learn so far is that RSL is very good, San Jose are a huge surprise and everything else is going to be extremely close.

One of the good things about having such a closely knit group is that every game is so essential, which makes for exciting watching. Should FC Dallas go on a nice little run and beat Colorado/Seattle in the next 10 days, they will suddenly shoot to potentially 3rd in the West. If they end up dropping more points, this thing could get out of hand pretty quickly.

It makes for exciting games and fascinating decisions in every match, but I think overall given the circumstances, 12 points from 9 matches is about on par with where we all thought this thing would be at this stage.
