24 hours from yet another match, they sure are coming quickly these days. As Schellas says, good teams play a lot of games.

There's another player that's kind of sort of linked with FC Dallas and it's Mexican attacking midfielder/forward Hebert Alferez. It's looking more than likely that he is headed to Croatia, but FCD has apparently had interest in him. 

También, Alférez es pretendido por la MLS para que se vaya a jugar al FC Dallas, pero el jugador a la Liga estadounidense no quiere partir, su objetivo es Europa.

Goal.com has a preview of tomorrow's game up with a few interesting tidbits

Red Bulls midfielder Teemu Tainio strained his left quad in warmups against Colorado and was a late scratch from the lineup. His status for this match is unclear

Robert Casner has a story up on the FCD website about Zach Loyd

He’s everything every coach wants," Hyndman said after a recent training session. "He shows up every day for practice and gives 100 percent. He’s a player that battles every ball, he’s courageous, great attitude, he’s a complete team player — the team always comes first."

Brek Shea will be ringing the closing bell at the NYSE today in celebration of the MLS All-Star game.

On Friday, July 22 MLS All-Star players Brek Shea (FC Dallas) and Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), accompanied by Chris Heck, New York Red Bulls, President of Business Operations and other MLS executives, will visit the New York Stock Exchange and ring The Closing Bell to celebrate the 2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game.

There's a lot of injury uncertainty from New York centered around two of their most important players. Rafa Marquez and Teemu Tainio are questionable for Saturday's match while Luke Rodgers is definitely out

Marquez is recovering from a right hamstring strain he suffered in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final, a 4-2 Mexico victory over the United States on June 25.

Tainio has a left quadriceps strain he aggravated during pre-game drills prior to the 4-1 loss at the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday night.

Midfielder Carl Robinson (right knee contusion) and Luke Rodgers (plantar fasciitis) are out of the match.

Apparently there's going to be an anti-Red Bull supporter's protest at Saturday's match. Anything to divert the fans attention off the game is a good thing for Dallas I guess. 

The three supporters’ groups, the Empire Supporters’ Club, the Garden State Supporters, and the Viking Army have decided to sit silently for the first half of the match to express their displeasure with the manner in which the club treated the US Open Cup. This is the culmination of much frustration amongst the fans, both over the past fifteen and a half seasons and within the current campaign.
