The weekend looms large for FC Dallas. We'll have plenty to get to today and tomorrow to get you all ready for Sunday's game. But first here are your daily links.

While Nick Walker wasn't gone from Frisco for very long, he did seem to get a good deal out of his loan in Puerto Rico. After all he is one of the few in MLS that can say he scored a goal at the Azteca.
It sounds like Fabian Castillo will go on Sunday, but as for Mauro Diaz we will have to continue to wait.

Even with just the headline, I totally agree with that. While Landon Donovan had one hell of a career, I do think that he could have done even more if he had wanted to.
I feel in a way that I have grown up with Donovan here. Most of the 'young' guys from the 2002 World Cup team aren't that much older than me so it feels a little weird seeing them all go off into the sunset.
Yes, I suppose that is a thing for them. Win the USOC, check. Win the Cascadia Cup...well they may lock that up tonight. As for the other two (Shield and MLS Cup), they can have the Shield for all I care. If they make it to MLS Cup, I may have a different opinion.
Yeah, the Timbers owners (our favorite friend in MLS), is allowing his fans to root for their biggest rival for two hours this weekend. That is because a Seattle win over Vancouver really does help them.
I don't think it should be any bit of a shock to see Montreal owner Joey Saputo buy an Italian soccer team. Though I kind of thought he already had one in Montreal.
No shocker which team is missing. I'm still trying to decide which crest is my favorite out of those 20 though. Plenty of good ones and a few that could use some work.
Alright, that is all we have for now. Enjoy your Friday everyone!
