Ten Man RSL Down Dallas and Perhaps Schellas Hyndman

…And what a chance it was. Ten of Salt Lake’s finest downed (well, tied) FC Dallas with a 1-1 result last Saturday night a Rio Tinto. For FCD, the game offered a glimmer of hope to a downtrodden side. It also offered Schellas Hyndman a chance to save his job, which looks to be hanging […]

No Other Options Except Victory in Dallas

Supporters who have followed Dallas well, and even the fair-weather ones who may have realized their team was first place in the league until May 2013 are bewildered by the team’s freefall. Summer was as unkind to the team’s win column as it is to the scorched earth surrounding Toyota Stadium. Nonetheless, FCD’s exploits in […]

Dominant FCD Stumbles in Colorado

Given the recent successes of Hyndman’s sides at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in the past two seasons, a victory in Denver was not out of the question. David Ferreira’s early second half finish – a solid one that was built up with solid combinations down the left flank – should have been an opening of […]

FC Dallas Partners With Toyota To Rename Home Ground

It’s a move that mirrors the league-leading upswing in attendance in Frisco, as well as the boost in local popularity and season ticket holders since 2010. FC Dallas Stadium is no more: Toyota Stadium is in.   The Pizza Hut deal (the stadium’s former namesake) fell apart only over a season ago, leaving the park […]

Rampant Dallas Attack Overwhelms Vancouver

It was an offensive display to remember. Two goals were nominated for MLS Goal of the Week, one of which was from the half line, the other a volley that made one’s hair stand on end. Aside from rejoicing, the subsequent reaction could really have been: where has this been since May? But, FCD’s powerful […]

Dallas Looks to End Second Streak in Four Days

With FCD’s winless streak no longer tormenting fans, players, and Schellas Hyndman alike, the team has its sights set on knocking rampant San Jose down a peg tonight in Frisco. A win for the visitors puts San Jose, a team with one of the worst starts to the 2013 season, level with Dallas, the fastest […]

FCD Look For a Second Statement Against Los Angeles

Hopefully you’re not still one of the 4.5%, 4.6%, 4.2%, or .8% of MLS Fantasy Soccer participants who still has David Ferreira, Jackson, Kenny Cooper, or even Fabian Castillo still in your lineup. For that matter, FCD didn’t even land a single shot on goal against Seattle last week. It’s almost been as difficult holding […]

FCD Enters Hostile Seattle Hoping to Reverse Road Woes

#Deucewatch is over and there is no way Dempsey will feature tonight against FC Dallas. There. I said it. It should go without saying, but for those holding out to see the men’s national team captain sporting rave green tonight at Century Link, you’ll be sorely disappointed. I’m not sorry, either. Dempsey on the pitch […]

Scrap Mettle: Once Resilient Dallas in Midseason Lull

Someone still has his or her finger held firmly on the pause button in Frisco. What was the most dominant team in the West, let alone MLS, has hit the skids, falling from first to fifth in a matter of three weeks. Rivals have risen like the sea surrounding a slowly sinking ship. But how […]

FC Dallas Hosts Enigmatic Chivas USA

Lawsuits have been filed. Coaches have been fired. First teamers have been waived and dropped. A US international has been signed. This is the Chivas USA of 2013. A vast majority of the team’s backroom drama has dropped in the past month, leaving most of the Goat’s MLS opponents still wondering what to expect on […]

SKC Match Marks Beginning of Busy FCD Summer

One of the most challenging stretches of MLS action awaits FC Dallas through the months of June and July. Difficulty lies not within the frequency of games, but the caliber of the competition. What could be an arduous summer campaign starts tonight at home against Sporting KC, a team which Dallas fell 2-1 away in […]

Heroic Fernandez Unable to Save Striker-less Dallas in Portland

To those of you who haven’t voted for Raul Fernandez, the Peruvian number one Raul Fernandez, as your MLS All-Star keeper choice: shame on you. Yet again his brilliance was on display, keeping Dallas within an arm’s reach of high-flying Portland at Jeld-Wen field this past Saturday. Seven saves, none of them easy saves, were […]

Cup Over MLS Campaign? FCD Faces Tough Roster Decisions

How many FCD supporters, in recent memory, could remember having Houston at home twice per season? You would have to go back to 2009 to imagine that fantasy scenario. It is not a dream, however, and both sides look to field strong starting XI’s in Wednesday’s US Open Cup clash in Frisco. Hyndman’s 2013 home […]

Two Seven-Match Unbeaten Streaks at Stake in Frisco

Believe this: the Portland Timbers are undefeated in their last seven matches, undefeated on the road in 2013, are fourth place in the Western Conference, have the sixth best points-per-game average, and also have the sixth best record in the MLS. This is not your cagey, defensive-minded, scattered-in-the-attack Spencer-era Timbers side that enters Dallas tonight. […]

Play Like It’s 2012: FCD Regresses In Vancouver

Everything has been a welcome change in Dallas this season. A refreshed attack, a home unbeaten streak, a healthy set of starters, a six point lead on the Western Conference, and shrewd offseason acquisitions (I’ve suddenly forgotten who Peter Luccin was) have all catapulted Frisco FC to new heights. None of these things were present […]
