USA TODAY Sports

Last day of the month, which means the MLS season is nearly upon us.

Man, where has this month gone? Seriously, tomorrow starts March and the one week countdown to the start of the 2014 regular season.

We have plenty to discuss on here today but before we get started, here are your morning links.

What do you make of George John potentially being out for the opener? Do you feel Texas can have four MLS teams? And what do you make of the NASL? Feel free to discuss that and more in this thread.
