Oh, what a week it's been for Major League Soccer.

All of the headlines this week have come off the field, as a big shift occurred in both conferences with the playoff race ready to heat up.

Sporting Kansas City traded Dom Dwyer to Orlando City for a massive sum of allocation money and then all hell broke loose on the LA soccer scene.

The LA Galaxy reportedly made a massive change on Thursday, firing the club's head coach and replacing him with an MLS coaching legend.

According to the LA Times, the Galaxy have fired head coach Curt Onalfo just 20 games into his first season on the job.

Ten teams failed to score in one of their games this week.

The LA Galaxy managed a comeback, but that overshadows the fact that Curt Onalfo is making first half tactical subs with some regularity. The 2-2 draw against the Chicago Fire probably buys the coach some time, but when a head coach's gameplan is so frequently wrong after a week of prep the problem lies with the coach.

The Los Angeles Galaxy media team did a couple of videos while the players were in pre-season training in Arizona. In one they focus on some of the rookies and their new experience as professionals in their first weeks with the team. In another they focus on the 'keepers and on the long-time relationship between new Galaxy assistant coach Curt Onalfo and Head Coach Bruce Arena.

It is, perhaps, a bit unseemly to post twice in such quick succession. But there are a few juicy tidbits worth mentioning today.

First, Curt Onalfo, formerly coach at DC, has joined the Galaxy as an assistant coach, taking Cobi Jones' place. Arena now has two assistants who have each had their own MLS team.

A hectic week is wrapped up with your scores.

D.C. United came home after driving and flying a whole lot the past week, and faced an LA Galaxy side that, despite having Curt Onalfo as its coach, was playing decent soccer recently. I'd presume that the 0-0 result makes the Black-and-Red feel a little snakebit but maybe people feel differently about it, so this is why we vote.

In some ways, this is a bad time for D.C. United to be facing the LA Galaxy. After a horrific start, the Galaxy have sorted some things out in terms of tactics, while Curt Onalfo asserted his leadership by surprisingly winning a conflict with defender Jelle Van Damme without alienating one of his key players.

Time to look at the man in charge.

At this point in history, there is perhaps no name as synonymous with D.C. United as Ben Olsen's. He's one of a very few guys to have etched his name as a legend through the club's highs and lows (and highs again), playing all over the midfield from 1998 through 2009.

Former Wizards Update

Another former Wizards update this week. The biggest news this week for former Wizards all came out today. First the news came out that former Wizards coach, Curt Onalfo was fired as head coach of DC United. Based on the news that came out about the firing, Onalfo is going to get plenty of money. The other news, is that former Wizards midfielder, Herculez Gomez is back with the national team as he was called up for the upcoming friendly against Brazil.

Back in March, I noticed when compiling the offense/defense ranks by year that KC's offense tanked under Onalfo after a good first season. Meanwhile, DC United was going into the season with a six year streak of being in the top half of the league on offense, tied for the longest ever.

Something had to give, and with DC sitting dead last in points and on offense, Onalfo has been fired.

In my reaction post to the 3-0 debacle against RSL, I wondered how long it would take for the headsman to show. Turns out, not so long. Sadly, he claimed the wrong head, or at least not enough heads.

Look, I'm about as enamored of Onalfo as slugs are salt, but this is one dirty Jedi mind trick by the FO.

It's the first time since 2009 that Sporting has allowed nine goals in three games (that streak was helped by a 6-0 loss in Dallas that cost then coach, Curt Onalfo, his job).
