Here is another piece on what Acosta did last night. The fact that he played the full 120 minutes last night after going a month or so without any minutes is impressive. Kid has serious moxie.

The crowd was electric, the band was loud and the players showed exactly who we thought they were as FCD won this one. That last ten minutes of regulation was something else too.

The word magical seems to be thrown out a lot today.

Gonzalez the hero in the shootout win | SI.com

Finally one writer calls out what Jesse Gonzalez did in goal last night for FCD. Huge saves in the penalty shootout. I felt pretty confident with him in goal, more so than who was going to take the kicks.

Conference semifinals analysis from a wild Sunday | MLSSoccer.com

Matt Doyle gives us his thoughts on the wild day that was Sunday in MLS. Two games went to extra time, one to penalties, the other two weren't nearly as dramatic. Love the discussion up top about the HGPs and lower priced DPs leading the way with the remaining teams in this playoff.

Well, well, well. It looks like we get a trip to Oregon up next. This should be just as fun as the Seattle series.

Why Kreis would be perfect in Atlanta | Dirty South Soccer

Would Jason Kreis really take on another expansion club? Not to mention would he sit out another season? I think he is a good fit as well but the whole take another year off thing leaves me to think it won't be in the cards.
