No home field edge

Michael Hitchcock said one of the reasons Steve Morrow was let go was his club's inability to win home games. Over the last 30 home games, FC Dallas has won 10 of them. Morrow's final game was the worst loss over that stretch, a 5-1 pasting at the hands of the Galaxy.

The club will have a chance to make a more favorable impression with the home faithful on Saturday against Real Salt Lake and May 28 against Houston. Statistically, FC Dallas has an edge over RSL as RSL has won just six of 47 games away from home all-time.

just wondering what Morrow's Road Record was? because if i remember correctly Colin Clarke couldn't win on the road.

hopefully the coaching situation at Dallas gets resolved soon.

RSL haven't taken a single point on the road thus far this season. In light of that, I would say Dallas have this one in the bag. But with so much turmoil going on there, I wonder if the team can pull together, rally around each other and focus on the task at hand.

If they can, they should be able to beat RSL no problem.
