Petke is never the type of coach to throw around unnecessary praise, preferring to let his player's actions on the field speak louder than his words.

Before Sunday's 1-1 draw with Chivas USA at the Home Depot Center, Juan Pablo Angel, who is now a striker for the Red-and-White, already had quite the reputation as an FC Dallas nemesis with five goals in his six career appearances against FCD. Angel didn't start on Sunday, but the veteran Colombian forward did come on for Robin Fraser's side at the break and wreaked his usual brand of havoc on Dallas, finishing the night with seven shots, including three on goal in his one half of play.
