FC Dallas is going to the finals of the USOC!

Show of hands who thought the game was over when Magee bagged that penalty? Yeah it didn’t look great then but this team has so much resiliency to not see something through.
Bring on the Revs folks. Seriously, FCD’s path to the final has been a pretty tough one when you consider that they’ve beaten arguably two of the league’s best teams, their own USL affiliate and then their top rivals on the road.
Victor ‘freakin’ Ulloa. Seriously. That kid.
Dallas did indeed get the better of the three goals on the night.
Oh hey, look some local news coverage of this game!
Let’s be real honest for a moment, Bruce Arena never wanted to win that game anyways.

New England’s blog decided to do a little who would you rather type debate before last night’s USOC game. It is still interesting to see who wanted Dallas and who wanted LA from this.
One of the league’s best players isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. That’s a good thing for Portland.
I don’t think United will be overly upset to offload another high contract like Alvaro Saborio from their books after this year. I always assumed he would go back to Costa Rica before his career was over anyways.
I’d argue that they are not just worth it in the right situations (Kljestan in NY, Dempsey in Seattle, etc) but they are important for the league as a whole to have these types of players returning here.
I still think FCD will sign a HGP before the end of the year.
I’ve always seen it as a matter if when instead of if for most big names. A lot of players know the lifestyle in the US is very good.
