It is almost time for the game! Chivas USA face FC Dallas on the road in their 2012 MLS season finale (4 p.m. PDT, Galavision). The Goats will try to see if they can get any sort of positive performance to end the season, one which appears to be Robin Fraser's last in charge of the team. Meanwhile, Dallas doesn't have a great deal to play for either, so this could really turn out to be a drab game. As far as I'm concerned, if Chivas somehow get a win, I don't really care how it looks. Don't worry, they are stuck in their position in the conference and league standings, so the result won't matter for their drafting and allocation order positions.
