    Vancouver with surprising 1-0 win over LAFC. There are now just 3 teams without a win: Colorado, Portland (no home games yet), and NYCFC.

    Also, LAFC are good, but they have also had the second easiest schedule to date based on opponent H/A PPG of just 0.82. Houston has had an even more ridiculous schedule weight of 0.48 PPG.

    For the record, NYC's schedule so far stands at 1.62 which is 6th toughest. It's 1.36 for the rest of the year which is midrange.

    Also a reminder that this early in the season these numbers can fluctuate wildly.

    ETA: Both Seattle and DC United have also had ridiculously easy schedules of 0.83 and 0.98 respectively. Like LAFC, they are good, but their records might be a bit inflated.

    Poor Dome. A victim of a stacked schedule and untimely injuries.

    Any team that has played NYCFC will have an easier schedule. Some of those teams that haven’t played us yet will soon see their schedule ranking drop too once we tee off against them.

    Mitrita should be a team’s #3 DP. He’s a complimentary player that cannot carry a team.

    When was the last time we had a player pick up the ball on our side of the field, run right at the opposing defense, put them on their heels, turn them around, and shoot (much less score).

    Last time was Harrison on that long outlet run that he went in to the box and back heeled it to a trailing villa for the score. So while it was a two-man run, it was the same lightning counter that had the defense on their heels.

    Exactly. Though there was also that amazing Medina dash, which set PV and the bench into a high five pandemonium, celebrating the first of many highlight film moments from our DP. [insert sad face].

    Incredibly, we may not have the worst field in MLS?
