After a wild weekend in MLS, FC Dallas still remains on top.

Our chalkboard breakdown of Saturday’s game took a closer look at all of those missed chances that Maxi Urruti had. But of course he scored on that weird bicycle kick.
Another call for this piece that we were able to get for you all. Tickets are always a hot topic and while the marketing that the club does isn’t always the best, I do think it is moving forward.
Even though Atiba Harris is picking up yellow cards like no other these days, the rest of the team does seem to find a way out of the red card situation this year. Which is definitely a plus.
I do love seeing how the players enjoy making Toyota Stadium a fortress. They certainly take great pride in that.
On the other side of things is how SKC got two goals out of Dom Dwyer on Saturday night. That folks is a forward who knows how to score from about anywhere.

There was plenty to chew on in this weekend from around MLS. Lots of goals scored with wild results in Columbus, a blow out in Philly, draws with the top western teams.
Watching Seattle and RSL last night, I kept having this thought that this Seattle team would sneak into the playoffs.
One result that was interesting and worth pointing out was the 2-0 loss by Portland in DC on Saturday. For every game that Portland looks good this year, they immediately take a step or two back with one like this.
Anyone watch the final five minutes or so in Columbus with the Crew and NYCFC? Go do it because it was bananas.
We discuss on Friday morning that the USL would have the first look at video replay and Friday night’s Orlando-NY game had a couple uses of it. Really interesting development for the game, one that will definitely take some time to work the kinks out too.
Plata scores! This is a very strange goal. 2-1 Seattle! pic.twitter.com/vVkZMqqNO1— Total MLS (@TotalMLS) August 15, 2016
Keeper encroachment or smart play by Yuri Movsisyan?
