A Monday after a bad loss is never a fun thing.
// FC Dallas //
Yep, we know this situation all too well now after the Seattle series.
Lets see now...FC Dallas has given up four goals off set pieces in three playoff games. That kind of stuff has to change for FCD to get to MLS Cup.
That road goal certainly helped a bunch but it would have been great not to give up three goals last night either.
From the other side of the SBN blog network, here is the Portland recap from last night.
It was an extremely hard week for Oscar Pareja and the FCD family with the news of Oscar's mother passing away on Thursday. That had to be something in the back of their minds last night.
Yep, make no mistake about it, that was a big one to pick up.
And here is more on the Pareja family.

Matt Doyle gives us his ten point take of the two conference final game from last night. Lots to think about in this one.
Both home sides won last night by two goals. Will it matter though come Sunday?
The Crew picked up a really solid result yesterday at home by winning 2-0 over New York. They scored one super early and one super late in this game.
Early goals can do just that for teams.
