Five games on the road and only two points and two goals to show for. Also that winless streak is now at six games. And if we want to take it a step back, only four goals in the last seven games. Yuck.

Andrea Pirlo appears really close to signing with MLS. Make it happen folks. I want to see him with David Villa and Frank Lampard later this year in Dallas.

Three games for Deuce in league play. I know some fans are furious about this but the league probably did about as good of a job with this one as they could since it wasn't a situation that happened in league play.

I don't remember who I saw on Twitter say it but I remember seeing someone post that they thought Brazil was going to run all over the Aussies. Whoops.
