Is FC Dallas on the verge of history?
That streak looks to be in jeopardy as the 2012 FCD club has currently gone seven games without a victory and with road games at Chicago, Real Salt Lake and Houston next up on the docket, it wouldn’t be a huge stretch to see them at least tie the mark for franchise futility.
It has now been 35 days since Dallas last earned three points, beating Montreal, 2-1 at FC Dallas Stadium back on April 14. Since that victory, FCD has gone 0-4-3 and their current seven-game winless streak is the second-longest in franchise history.
But back to the 2005 streak, FCD didn’t win between July 2 and Sept. 10 under Colin Clarke, but still managed to make the playoffs. So what are the parallels between that streak and this current one? It’s tough to say, but we’ll see how this plays out over the next few weeks.
