Yesterday we looked at our top stories from the 2013 preseason up until the end of April. We're looking back at our top stories of 2013 here at Big D Soccer and today we'll look at some slightly darker months in 2013 as we go from May to August.
May rolled around with some injury news on Andrew Jacobson and George John. It seemed a little early to ask at the time but we also wondered if the Supporters' Shield was really realistic in 2013.
Fernando Clavijo started dropping some hints about a mystery midfielder that the club was looking at. We narrowed our list of targets for that search. Shortly after that, the first salary report was released by the MLSPU.
Stories began to pop-up about FCD's potential stadium sponsor.
Late May saw MLS expand to New York City. FCD downed San Jose the next weekend thanks to Raul Fernandez and Fabian Castillo. Of course San Jose brought their goons to that game. FCD would also advance in the third round of the USOC past Fort Lauderdale.
The scoreless drought would continue for another week as FCD tied Montreal 0-0.
But the scoreless slump continued with a 3-0 loss at Seattle.
The team would finally score again, in a big way, but the winless streak would continue after a 3-3 draw to LA.
Warshaw would then be loaned to a Swedish second division club, where he would kill it scoring several goals.
