It won’t get any easier for FC Dallas as they are now in a large hole after the first leg.

It wasn’t even just the ten minute stretch that saw Seattle score the three goals. There just wasn’t enough moving forward in the attack to even give Dallas a shot at this game.
Once again we will get the late game on the day.
One team looked like they wanted to sit back and defend for 90, while the other took it to the opposition. I don’t fault Oscar Pareja for the defensive look to his lineup but maybe it was just a bit too defensive.
The second Seattle figured out how to go wide against Dallas with pace, the game was their’s.
Dangerous may not even be the right word for Seattle after last night.
I was worried when we entered the playoffs but that is another thing. After last night, its going to take a lot to come back from that beating.
I can see why the folks in Seattle might say things like this.

There was a lot going on yesterday from all the Leslie Jones tweets to the four games. Also that last point on this post about FCD is a solid reminder about how good things have been this year despite last night’s game.
Colorado took a pretty defensive approach to their game in LA as well but it was the Galaxy that got one goal for the win. I kind of think that could be enough to win that series.
Toronto FC looked like the team from a couple months ago that was beating everyone in their path. I kind of want a TFC team like this in MLS Cup.
The first game of the day yesterday saw the Red Bulls get upset on the road for their first loss since July 3.
