FC Dallas coach Oscar Pareja notched his 100th regular-season MLS victory with Saturday's 2-0 win over Minnesota United.The coach was characteristically modest about reaching the milestone, preferring to focus on Thursday's rivalry match in Houston."Very honored, happy, but you know me. This one is over and now we need to move on to the next one," Pareja said. "I don't like to keep dwelling on the negatives or the positives -- we've gotta keep going. That's the (commitment) we have as professionals."The coach may not be too interested in celebrating the century mark, but FC Dallas CEO and...

MLS Weekly Wrap-up: MLS’s first all-female broadcast team calls a match!

Meanwhile one LA team thrives, while the other is forced to play a match without five of their starters. This week was a historic one for MLS. The first ever all-female broadcast team took on calling the D.C. United vs New England Revolution game. This was a huge moment for women in sports everywhere. The game was called by Lisa Byington with analysis by Danielle Slaton, and sideline reporting from Katie Witham. They did a wonderful job and I hope to see more women in sports broadcasting in the future. Elsewhere, Toronto FC’s match ended in a draw, the Seattle Sounders murdered the LA...

Postgame Pontificiation: Brian Schmetzer knows what’s working even if we don’t

The Sounders coach seems to just trust his players. SEATTLE — There’s no denying that the Seattle Sounders are playing better of late. That they are coming off a 5-0 dismantling of the an admittedly short-handed LA Galaxy and are now riding a six-game winning streak are only the most recent and obvious examples of the improved play. Figuring out why they are playing better is a bit a more complex. Prior to the Galaxy win, there wasn’t even a ton of statistical evidence that the Sounders were actually playing all that much better. Bobby Warshaw recently wrote a column for MLSsoccer.com...

Wildfire smoke doesn’t keep Sounders off training pitch

Air quality in Seattle area rated as “unhealthy.” Despite the air quality index being rated as “unhealthy”, the Seattle Sounders continued to train outdoors on Tuesday ahead of their rivalry match with the Portland Timbers. Just about everyone but Clint Dempsey — who continues to deal with a lower-back injury — was participating. Seattle Sounders? More like Seattle Smokers. Because of the air quality.

Impact push Fire losing streak to 8

Another late goal and another loss. Montreal defender Daniel Lovitz bounced a volley into the net in the 91st minute of play to hand the Fire their eighth consecutive loss in league play and essentially put a stake through the heart of any playoff hopes. Ignacio Piatti converted a penalty kick in the 6th minute after a foul in the box by Bastian Schweinsteiger resulted in an early attempt from the spot. Nemanja  Nikolic tied the game with a follow up shot of his initial try in the 70th minute but it wasn't enough to salvage a result in Canada. The 2-1 defeat, combined with other results...
