As we head into the holidays, it seemed like a good time to reflect on what an amazing year it has been on this place. You all have helped us take Big D Soccer to new heights that we didn't know were possible going into 2013.
We kicked off January with a bang, new updates to the layout here at the SB Nation network helped really open things up for what we could do. Shortly after that, we were finding out small updates on Moises Hernandez, Ugo Ihemelu and Julian de Guzman.
Before the draft, the club signed two defenders as London Woodberry finished his Homegrown deal with the team and Re-Entry Draft selection Stephen Keel made things official. Right after that happened, the 2013 schedule (finally) came out.
Then we got Raul Fernandez.
March finally rolled around, the club came out of the gate with a big win over Colorado in the season opener. The team would stumble at Chivas in Week 2 before returning home for a big showdown with their Texas rivals in Week 3.
In late March, the club officially added Nunez and their 10th Homegrown in keeper Jesse Gonzalez.
Week 4 saw the club down RSL at home, 2-0. The win helped put FCD on the top of the Western Conference going into April.
As spring began to hit it's full stride, so did FC Dallas. Towards the end of March, we pondered where more FCD fans might come from. In Week 5, the club went on the road and downed New England 1-0, thanks to a late Blas Perez goal.
In late April, we learned that FCD would be hosting Stoke City for a summer friendly.
Check back for more from 2013...up next is May through August.
