Absurd that FCD is ranked so low. Other than tonight's game versus LAG, they've played some of the best soccer in the league (except for Houston) for an extended period now.

The midfield combination of Toja, Richetti, Alvarez, and Richardino is dominant. Although it didn't show tonight (at all), the defense is pretty solid too and Sala (once again, not tonight) is just as solid.

Ditto. FCD will be getting Cooper back soon, and will likely trade Nunez for some defensive depth. They are well placed for a good run in the USOC, the MLS Cup, and possibly the Supporters Shield. They have struggled when playing 3 games in 8 days or less, but don't have many weeks like that left on the schedule.
