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 week 20 of the MLS season.

1. The Galaxy Raise The Stakes

A fair number in MLS would tell you that the 2014 LA Galaxy was the league's best attacking team ever. The front six – Juninho, Marcelo Sarvas, Stefan Ishizaki, Landon Donovan, Gyasi Zardes, and Robbie Keane – combined for 68 goals in the regular season, and added nine more in the postseason en route to the team's fifth MLS Cup.

While there are devotees of the Pro Evolution Soccer and Football Manager franchises, EA Sports seems to have the market cornered in terms of eyes and/or interested parties. Previously they had unveiled that women's national teams would be available for FIFA 16, and in their gameplay trailer, released at E3 (the Entertainment and Electronic Expo), they have a rendered Century Link Field, home of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders.

D.C. United's injury bug continues, with Bill Hamid out for longer than we would like.

Andrew Dykstra was the starter in goal for D.C. United's most recent game, the 1-0 loss against the Seattle Sounders. It is good that he played well, because he will probably be in goal for the rest of July: Steve Goff is reporting that Bill Hamid is going to be out for a couple of weeks with lingering knee and hand injuries.
