This week saw players and teams not normally in the spotlight come through with big goals and big results.

We saw a rookie score his first career goal in impressive fashion for one of the league's top teams on national television. One team still clawing for a playoff spot scored a huge victory over one of the best in the Eastern Conference.

2015 MLS Season, Week 2: Quick Thoughts

Another week in Major League Soccer is in the books. I've finally made my way through the games here to see what went on. Lots of goals to discuss this week until in the season opener but also a lot of officiating issues. Fun.

1. Man in the middle gets it wrong

It wasn't just a poorly missed offside call in Dallas but a number of calls like the red card to Justin Morrow and a penalty call in Salt Lake that just stood out more on this weekend than anything else.

This is the opening sentence where you expect us to crack wise about the latest Toronto FC transaction. But no. There is nothing negative to say. It is simply the kind of deal that slowly makes MLS sides better. The kind of deal that most MLS clubs make. The kind of deal that TFC has avoided like the plague for eight years.

Soccer is a blame game. Goals aren't common, so when you give one up, everyone goes looking for someone to blame. But is it that simple?

Long-time PSP readers know I like to dissect goals. (I play center back. What do you expect?) So let's play.

We'll pick out the first San Jose goal, shown in the video below, not just because it's an absolute clinic of good attacking soccer, but also because the defensive breakdown may not be where it seemed to be.
