FCD wins but comeback falls short against Seattle | Big D Soccer

We won the battle but Seattle won the war is how the saying may go. Whatever may come of this though we can truly say it was a special season. I know we’ll dive more into it in the coming weeks.

Pareja: We have been fighting for three tournaments |

There is also no denying how many games FCD has played in this season. The 34 regular season games, the five in the USOC, the four in the CCL and then the two in the MLS playoffs. That my friends is a lot of games.

Akindele: Losing treble seems like a failure |

Can anyone stop Toronto right now in these playoffs? Seriously? I don’t think anyone can.

Piatti comes up big in win over Red Bulls | Mount Royal Soccer

Well, okay, if there is a club that could beat Toronto it is probably this Montreal team.

Marsch: I feel a big sense of disappointment | Once a Metro

FCD wasn’t the only one seed to crash out of the playoffs. New York never showed up in the series against Montreal and looked nothing like the club that went unbeaten between July and October.
