FC Dallas finished out a home stand with a nice 4-0 blowout win over Orlando City. The pollsters are finally done with their weekly rankings and as one might expect, FCD remains near the top.
Comment: They're now 5-1-2 in their last eight, with a +9 goal differential – and, presumably, more goal-scoring help on the way now that the transfer window is open. They've already bolstered the defensive corps a bit as well. Dallas have the feel of a boulder starting to roll downhill...
Comment: Defenders Walter Zimmerman and Matt Hedges accounted for two of the goals and Mauro Diaz picked up two assists as FCD won a second straight game. Holding Orlando City SC to zero shots on goal also deserves mention.
Comment: When FC Dallas is at their best, invariably at home, they can do what they did to Orlando on Monday -- dominate for 90 minutes. The issue in north Texas isn't talent, it's consistency.
