  1. Talking tactics: New York Red Bulls at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

    Just over four months ago, a counter-attacking Dallas squad was eliminated from the 2011 playoffs by the New York Red Bulls. The two sides kicked off the 2012 season on the same pitch using the same tactics and formations, but the 2-1 Dallas victory ...

    Blake Owen

    In what has been an all-too-familiar sight at Pizza Hut Park, Schellas Hyndman put his charges in a position to bag a win but his players let him down with shoddy finishing and a few errors at the back. Last night Hyndman rolled out a 4-2-3-1 to c...

  5. Talking tactics: FC Dallas at Sporting Kansas City

    Blake Owen

    It often seems that one of two things occurs when squads with similar shapes face off. The mirror-like either lead to an open, exciting game or a dull, stymied affair. Last night's game in Kansas City ended up as the former. Schellas Hyndman's 4...

  6. Talking tactics: Seattle Sounders at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

    Schellas Hyndman isn't unfamiliar with the tactics Seattle manager Sigi Schmid used to garner a 1-0 victory on Saturday. Schmid deployed a 4-4-1-1, conceding possession but pushing forward swiftly on the counter. Earlier in the week, Hyndman led F...

  7. Talking tactics: FC Dallas at Philadelphia Union

    Blake Owen

    When Dallas and Philadelphia met in May, Fabian Castillo torched the Union to the tune of a goal and an assist. With Castillo still out on international duty, it was another newcomer's turn to shine against Philly. Striker Maicon Santos bagged the ...

  9. Talking tactics: Chivas USA at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

  11. Talking tactics: Columbus Crew at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

    Fabian Castillo was still absent. Schellas Hyndman still used a 4-2-3-1. And FC Dallas still recorded a victory. On Saturday, in contrast to the two squads' encounter in April - when Columbus had a 55%-44% possession advantage - Dallas held the...

  12. Talking tactics: Portland at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

    FC Dallas hasn't forgotten how to play a 1-striker system. Fabian Castillo's absence (he's currently with the Colombian U-20's) forced Schellas Hyndman's hand against Portland, and the gaffer dropped his recently-favored 4-4-2 for a 4-2-3-1. Much...

  13. Talking tactics: FC Dallas at Chivas USA

    Blake Owen

    A week after dominating possession but losing, FC Dallas readily conceded the majority of possession to Chivas USA and still posted a convincing 2-1 victory. Both squads rolled out a 4-4-2 to begin the match, and with each team pressing from the w...

  15. Talking tactics: New England Revolution at FC Dallas

    Blake Owen

    Well that was a welcome change. In last night's 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution, FC Dallas returned to a possession-based attack. The Hoops played their most fluid offense since David Ferreira's injury, but an uninspired New England had...

    Blake Owen

    Schellas Hyndman seems to have found a formation and personnel grouping he likes, but an injury to George John forced him to make a change against the Houston Dynamo. Rookie Bobby Warshaw filled-in for the injured center back. The inclusion of Wars...
