In which we expand on something.

D.C. United came into Saturday's game with Toronto FC winners of two in a row over their Eastern Conference foes, and was facing a lineup who has a player in it (Michael Bradley) making almost double the entire D.C. lineup. D.C. did have some moments but eventually found themselves hanging on over Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco, and left BMO Field with a 0-0 draw.

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.

The Last Word on D.C. United 2-0 Columbus Crew: Tackling A Trope

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

In which we have a minor off topic rant.

D.C. United put together a convincing effort in last week's win over the Vancouver Whitecaps and facing a Columbus Crew SC team who was white hot offensively, there could be some excusing of their performance this week that they could lose. Nevertheless, last week's impressive performance was followed by an equally impressive win over the Crew, and another clean sheet for a team who is back where they belong, not only (tied for) first place but also (tied for) giving up the second fewest goals in Major League Soccer at this point.

In which we wonder if what we saw the Black and Red do Saturday is a one-off or experimenting with something new.

D.C. United had not been decent on the road going back to late last season and there was every reason to think that they would not go on the road cross country to beat a team that had lost four games in 26 home matches against the East.

Philadelphia Union

Should Brian Sylvestre's loan be made permanent?

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

The goalkeeper has done well since joining the Union, however has it been enough to warrant a permanent move?

When Andre Blake and John McCarthy went down injured in training on May 6, the Philadelphia Union were in trouble. The club that had been the butt of jokes for having too many goalkeepers suddenly had none.

It was ugly!

The Philadelphia Union entered BC Place with two goalkeepers who had played a combined zero minutes in MLS prior to tonight's fixture. The Philadelphia Union lost 3-0, an utterly unsurprising result all things considered, and things only got worse when late in the game Richie Marquez picked up a (albeit probably undeserved) red card, completing the shit sandwich once and for all.
