Undefeated at Home, FCD Face New Road Challenge

Three. Ten. Four. These three numbers have much to bear on FCD’s burgeoning 2013 road campaign: they were last year’s dismal results away from Frisco. Only thirteen out of a possible fifty-one points went in Hyndman’s direction in 2012. This may be the biggest question for FCD, given the club’s superb form in success: can […]

Top of the Table FCD Hosts Whitecaps

Not six months ago these two sides battled it out for the final Western Conference playoff spot. Vancouver was in flux at the time as coach Martin Rennie searched for the right squad to take Vancouver into the playoffs and the 2013 season. FC Dallas, six months ago, scrambled, clawed, and tirelessly fought for the […]

Six Points Separate Dallas From the Rest of the West

Questions and a disputed title loomed over Saturday’s match against Los Angeles. Could Hyndman’s side claim, arguably, the biggest scalp in the Western Conference? Had FCD steamed to the top of the west and league with a favorable home schedule? Were thirteen out of eighteen possible points a product of luck rather than dominance? Even […]

An Unbeaten Streak to Defend In Frisco

Much time has passed since that statement could be uttered confidently in North Texas. In its fourth match of the 2013 campaign, FCD looks to defeat a Salt Lake side that is historically 0-8-3 in Frisco during the Jason Kreis era.   Recent history maintains shared spoils between both sides, the series ending 1-1-1 in […]

Cannons and Confidence at Stake in Dallas

Win this match, and the rest of the season may not matter. Such comfort could easily be ascribed to if the season’s auspices weren’t so promising for Hyndman and company in Dallas. With Houston visiting today in Frisco, much more than a 19th century howitzer will be at stake: the Dynamo need to rebound after […]

Dallas Hosts Colorado in Season Opener

There is a newfound, yet tentative aura of optimism drifting through the crisp March air in Frisco. Despite the lack of three-nils and flowing football throughout the preseason, there is a common belief that the team has goals in it; a belief that will be tried tonight with Colorado’s arrival. An immediate history between the […]

FC Dallas 2013 Season Preview

After a long, playoff-less 2012 season, FC Dallas will attempt to turn around their end-of-season playoff spurning into a stronger 2013 run, with a deeper, but fluctuating squad. It may be (at least on paper) the strongest team fielded yet in Frisco. 2012 Season Stats: Record (9-13-12; 6th in Western Conference) Goals Scored: 42 Goals […]

Brek the Benefactor: The Latest on FCD’s Offseason

Only four members from FCD’s 2010 MLS Cup run remain in what has been an awfully active offseason. Changes have abounded, from Doug Quinn’s arrest in NYC, to the unexpected-yet-feasible transfer of Brek Shea to Stoke City, to the signing and releasing of Brazilian-talent-and-also-bust, Pipico. Supporters, writers, and the MLS world were most astounded by […]

Nothing Short of Victory Will Suffice in Dallas

Eight injured starters and six ejections later, miraculously, FC Dallas finds itself upon the precipice of the playoffs. Despite a constant lack of consistent health and consistent appearances, the team has managed to bide its time, string a few key results together in the buildup to tonight’s match against Vancouver. Win, and they might be […]

Dallas Touts Two Game Win Streak Ahead of RSL

You’re hearing this correctly. For the first time in 2012 FCD can claim a win streak: two Western Conference foes faced, two downed. Wednesday’s victory in the Great White North against Vancouver was ideal. A Dallas side that was Brek Shea-less (and de Guzman-less for that matter) took it to the once high-flying Whitecaps. It […]

FCD Seeks Vengeance In Vancouver

It’s fair to say that FCD was hard done by the result in Vancouver towards the beginning of the 2012 campaign. A brilliant Camillo strike within the first 15 minutes shell-shocked Dallas –  a team that was bereft of confidence and struggling to find form after starting the season so well, and then struggling so […]

Unsatisfied FCD Hosts Upbeat Colorado

Oscar Pareja’s Colorado Rapids will visit Dallas for the second time in 2012 Saturday night. The former FCD assistant’s side recently put a stop to a six match losing streak. To their own credit, they at least ended the slump with an abrupt win against rivals Salt Lake last week. Regardless, the Rapids’ away record […]

FC Dallas Hosts Resurgent Galaxy

Prior to the month of June the same questions were being asked of FC Dallas and the Galaxy.  Namely, most would ask, “When on earth will this awful form end?” Bruce Arena’s Galaxy, unlike Hyndman’s FCD, found points and has strung together a series of excellent results after a midseason intervention in spite of a […]

A Complete 90 Minutes: FCD 5, Portland 0

Please let Dallas savor it for a bit. You detractors, you thugs that seek to diminish the quality of this victory probably only see one thing on the score line: that bottom-of-the-league Portland is in it. Despite that small fact, FCD is certainly not far from that basement, but the performance given on Saturday night […]

Dallas Hosts Portland Amidst Inner Turmoil

FCD faces several tests in their match tonight, at home, against fellow Western Conference basement dwellers Portland. Brek Shea, Schellas Hyndman, and Jair Benitez all left San Jose on Wednesday with a bitter taste in their mouths. Fortunately for Schellas Hyndman his side face the only team in MLS with a worse road record than […]
