The Good, The Bad, The Coyote Ugly

It's a wrap.....

THE GOOD

*By scoring against Columbus, Chivas USA's Jesse Marsch, in his 13th season, has more goals (four) than either Luciano Emilio or Jozy Altidore (three apiece).
*Christian Gomez's midfield control and perfect ball to Conor Casey for Colorado's first goal. It was Gomez's fifth assist.
*Geoff Cameron's curling ball to set up Brian Ching's goal.
*Chivas USA's Jorge Flores, 18, scores again, this time with a crackling volley.
*Robbie Findley, entering at halftime, scoring from distance and working a combination with Javier Morales for an assist.
*Toronto's Julius James scoring in his league debut as TFC improves to 4-0-2 at BMO. "It's his first professional game and goal -- great ratio," TFC Coach John Carver said.
*Colorado beating Dallas in a regular season match for the first time since September 2004.
*Goalkeeper Ray Burse, on loan to USL Portland, rejoining Dallas on Saturday in Denver after playing for the Timbers on Friday in Montreal and traveling to Rochester in anticipation of another USL match. He started for FCD yesterday because of Dario Sala's injury.
*Jon Conway's right-hand save against Houston.
*Joe Cannon stopping Javier Morales's penalty kick.

THE BAD

*Columbus scoreless in its last three league matches.
*The Galaxy without David Beckham (international duty) and Landon Donovan (injury).
*Toronto missing a couple breakaways.
*Dallas 1-7-2 in matches shown by Telefutura.
*L.A.'s Edson Buddle missing from nine yards.

THE COYOTE UGLY

*Dallas's 1-4-2 record after a 2-0-2 start and three of the next four on the road.
*Columbus midfielder Danny O'Rouke's early red card, leaving Atiba Harris with five stitches.
*No Western Conference teams above .500. First-place Colorado would be fifth in the East.
*No end in sight for D.C. United's stadium saga.
*Quakes Coach Frank Yallop, on the Rice-Eccles turf: "I'm not in love with the field to be honest; it was a terrible game to watch. The first half was awful. It's just tough for our players to come and play on it."

Anything to add?
