FC Dallas suffered its latest ugly defeat of the season on Friday night, falling, 4-0, on the road to the New York Red Bulls. The lopsided result worsened the league's best record by moving FC Dallas to 5-3-2, but what was just as bad was the fact that the Western Conference club still cannot avoid getting blown out in games that it fails to pick up points in.

It's like déjà vu all over again.
