I don't know about you but I'm a bit sad that the World Cup is over. But at least we're getting back into the MLS season as FC Dallas will be back in action this weekend.
// FC Dallas //
FCD was the lone team that was off this weekend in MLS. Some solid results in the standings for FCD's sake but there are some teams charging up the standings.
The FCD leader shares his Brazil experience and more.
Seriously? I find this one a little hard to believe but it appears to be a pretty solid rumor.

Three more points for the Sounders on Sunday night. Still, big kudos to MLS for scheduling a Cascadia Cup match right after the World Cup final. Smart play there.
More analyst material here but I'll say this about Portland, there is no way they make the playoffs this year with that remaining schedule. I don't care how Liam Ridgewell will do for them, it just isn't happening this year. Unless FCD, Colorado and Vancouver all collapse together.
LA is the one team in the West that I worry about for FCD. Lots of games in hand and they are starting to click.
Have you all realized that Chivas USA has a four-game unbeaten run? Yeah, I'm not sure how that has happened.
Well, it certainly doesn't help if you are curious.
Go a head and add him to Orlando, that seems to be where he is going next.

This should be fun...and by fun I say that with the most sarcasm as possible.
Such a solid win for the German side, I don't know about you but yesterday's final was a fitting way to end this tournament.
Beautiful game indeed. The tournament's best team won the Cup, just like they should.
