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.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week eight of the MLS season.

1. Univision's MLS English-language broadcasts are a disaster

With MLS' new TV deal, Univision was pushed into the spotlight with an exclusive Friday night game each week. It hasn't been pretty.

Univision had a double-header on Friday night, and to be brutally honest, watching MLS on the network is a severely trying experience.

MLS Power Rankings, Week 5: Tissue-gate

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

Don't cry...this weekend's games were fantastic and so are this week's Power Rankings.

Week 5, take a bow. It was a very fun weekend of Major League Soccer, with some late drama on the scoreboard in several matches and fireworks between coaches after the game (Someone needs a tissue). This week is the kind that MLS desires: a lot of action, lots of great goals, some incredible defensive stands and a lot of games that weren't decided until late.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week five of the 2015 Major League Soccer season:

1. Crisis in Philadelphia

What's the worse feeling for Philadelphia Union fans right now? That the Union became only the seventh team in MLS history to go into stoppage time winning and finish it losing, or that there's next to no hope that next weekend and the weekend after will be any better.

Portland earns first win of season, ending FC Dallas’ undefeated streak

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

FC Dallas arrived in Portland Saturday night with the best record in MLS (3 wins, 1 draw). Dallas has never won in Portland however, and that streak continued as the Timbers felled Dallas 3-1 in an overall fast, physical battle between the Western Conference rivals.

After a relatively lifeless opening 20 minutes, the Timbers jump-started the clash in the 23rd minute when center back Nat Borchers headed in an uncontested corner kick from Jorge Villafana.

Here are the 10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 2:

1. A Little Joy For NYCFC

NYCFC's rollout was rough. It ranged from brutally mismanaged to the deliberately misleadingin the signing of Frank Lampard. The team still doesn't have a stadium plan, the New York Yankees are moaning about their use of Yankee Stadium, and what became painfully obvious over the last year was that MLS saw Manchester City's money, saw the New York City location, and rushed a franchise to debut before it was ready.

#DCUAfterDark returns as United takes on an under-pressure Timbers side.

D.C. United faces the Portland Timbers in a game that both teams kinda-sorta need to do well in. For United, two flat performances in a row have seen the Black-and-Red squander a chance to jump way out in front of the pack for the Supporters Shield, and a third would officially make this the worst period of 2015 thus far.

Trying to suss out Caleb Porter's moves in a midweek game is not that easy.

Life is often about perspective. The Portland Timbers are the last-placed team in MLS's Western Conference. Short rest, injuries, cross-country flights, consecutive turf games and an offense that has produced 1 (one) shot on goal in 180 minutes aside, D.

D.C. United back their bags and fly from New England to Portand, facing off against the Timbers on Wednesday night for a little #dcuafterdark action. And all of that is before United has to fly back to the District to take on the Philadelphia Union on Saturday, for a total flying distance of over 5000 miles in about a week.

Normally teams in the spot the Revs are are tough to predict, but Jay Heaps rested enough players mid-week that his lineup tonight will be more or less straightforward.

Plenty of D.C. United fans have been dreading the next few days all season. It's not out of particular fear of the New England Revolution - strong team though they are - or the Portland Timbers.

Sporting's Defense Cleans Up, but Offense Still Lacks in 0-0 Draw

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
Sporting Kansas City is off to their worst start to the season since 1999. Last night at Sporting Park made it three straight to start the season without a win as they played the Portland Timbers to a 0-0 draw. The defense stepped up against a Portland team that has shown to cause Kansas City trouble on the counter in the past, shutting out the Timbers offense while Luis Marin came up with saves when he was called upon.
