Here are the 10 things we learned from the 21stweek of the MLS season.

1. Pirlo!

Andrea Pirlo is royalty. There is no other way to explain why opposing players refuse to tackle him, refuse to harass him, refuse, really, to even look threateningly at him.

Pirlo played just a shade over 30 minutes in his NYCFC debut on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, and he was absolutely magnificent.

Here are the 10 things we learned from gameweek 12 of the Major League Soccer season.

1. Congratulations to Chris Wondolowski

The wait for Wondo's 100th MLS goal wasn't a long one. Eight days after heading in 99 at Avaya Stadium, the San Jose Earthquakes striker hit the century mark at Levi's Stadium by converting a penalty with a mix of aplomb and ferocity that can only be described as admirable.

In which we have a minor off topic rant.

D.C. United put together a convincing effort in last week's win over the Vancouver Whitecaps and facing a Columbus Crew SC team who was white hot offensively, there could be some excusing of their performance this week that they could lose. Nevertheless, last week's impressive performance was followed by an equally impressive win over the Crew, and another clean sheet for a team who is back where they belong, not only (tied for) first place but also (tied for) giving up the second fewest goals in Major League Soccer at this point.

In a reversal of the endgame of their last match, the Chicago Fire pulled out an equalizer deep into stoppage time and grabbed a vital point at Columbus. Substitute Jason Johnson headed home Eric Gehrig's cross with almost the last touch of the match and the Fire nabbed a 2:2 draw.

Fire Confidential | ChicagoNow at related • 0 views
This time the shoe is on the other foot. It was the Columbus Crew's turn to collapse under late game pressure and surrender a two goal lead. In similar fashion to the Fire's demoralizing late-game stumble last weekend a stoppage time goal left the equalizing team with a bit of a false sense of accomplishment.

The Rest

Maidana's effort fuels dominant Union victory

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

A solid team performance gives the Union their third win in four.

The Union have only scored three goals in a game twice this season. On both occasions, Cristian Maidana was dominant, playing like the dynamic creator that fans and Union brass alike delight in watching. Coach Jim Curtin was one of the many who were impressed by the Argentine playmaker's performance during the Union's 3-0 win over the Columbus Crew.
