So FC Dallas can score five goals without Mauro Diaz.

It wasn't a pretty game but what CONCACAF games really are pretty? The win puts FCD into the quarterfinals next spring and thus really shortens the offseason for all of us this winter.
I think last night was not a true preview of where Oscar Pareja is thinking of going with his lineup for the reminder of 2016. But I do think he is going to go game-by-game with his formation from here on out.
We haven't seen this team have a five goal outburst like that in some time.

I'll honestly take this bracket for the three MLS sides. You get one matchup in the quarterfinals that will knock out at least one Mexican team. And then you have another Mexican team going against Saprissa. Yeah, not bad.
A lot of traveling goes into the Shield late in the season for those that keep it. Lets hope the trip to LA won't be a waste for it and FCD is able to take it.
It is still kind of interesting to me that Colorado hasn't officially re-signed Pablo Mastroeni to a new deal after the way things have gone this season.
At this point I view the Shield as just one more piece of the 2016 puzzle for FCD. If they win it, great. They don't it was still a pretty damn good year.
It has to be Columbus but if the Timbers join them, then that would easily be the biggest disappointment.
I'm happy for Patrick Nyarko and his chance to get some post season glory here after all those years in Chicago.
Some smart midseason pickups did the trick in this case. Also dumping some unfavorable contracts helped a little too.
I again will say that I love the 10 games, kicking off all at once thing. Loads of fun.
We're not the biggest game on Sunday? But we're definitely up there.
