It is never fun to wake up on a Monday following a loss.

Well, that sucked a bit last night.

FCD frustrated after comeback falls short |

Twice FCD mounted a comeback last night against the Galaxy, and both times they fell short. Let's face it, the road is super unkind to this group.

FCD looks fragile with Shield in sights |

Last night was not a team that looked like a Supporters' Shield contender. I'll also say that much.

Thoughts and notes from Week 30 |

Matt Doyle checks in with his weekend recap. Plenty to go over here with Vancouver dropping a game at home to NYCFC, Orlando hammering New York, and Seattle mustering up a draw with SKC. So much to play for in the final month of the season coming up.

Red Bulls score one of the nicest set pieces of 2015 |

If you missed one of the lone bright spots for New York on Friday night against Orlando, do yourself a favor and watch this goal a dozen times or so. Seriously, this is set piece scoring at its best.

United drop fifth game out of six | Black and Red United

The Shield at one point was going to run through our nation's capital but not now. DCU looks like a team on a major decline at the moment. But how good was Didier Drogba in this one?

Did Jurgen break Omar Gonzalez? | LAG Confidential

This one game up before our game with LA last night but it is still worth the read for those curious about the play of the the Dallas-native these days.

Giovinco sets MLS point record |

I wouldn't be at all shocked if he was also the first to get to 20 goals and 15 assists on the season. Which is ridiculous.

Where has Herculez Gomez been? | Waking the Red

You could make a joke about his lack of play being due to Sporting KC still holding some sort of right over him. But I won't go there.

Who will go further, Toronto or Montreal? |

Right now the Eastern Conference is pretty much locked up in terms of who will likely be in the playoffs. Both NYCFC and Orlando may have scored big wins this week but neither look like they can catch up to Montreal and Toronto. Which begs the important question as to who will fare better in the post season.
