It seems a little crazy to think this season has flown by this quickly but we're here in the final week. Lets get into some daily links to start today off.
// FC Dallas //
If you vote for Tesho that is. The latest video in the campaign for Tesho Akindele's rookie of the year run is out. Enjoy.
The club helps break down all the various scenarios for us.
// MLS //
As you might expect, Simon Borg talks about the PK issued in the Colorado game. He had no issue with it or the tackle Zach Loyd had in the first half.
Did you realize that Saturday's foe, the Portland Timbers have a game in Honduras tonight? Yeah, before having to come to Dallas they're on a long road trip to close out the CCL group stage. Lets hope Olimpia wears them out a bit.
While most teams are getting ready for the playoffs, some like the Union are taking time to do the blame game on what went wrong this season.
It wasn't pretty last Saturday in Philadelphia.
The stuff we talked about a couple weeks ago gets a deeper look here.
I wanted Raul to come to MLS a few years ago as one of the early DPs in the league. Now he heads to the NASL...the new retirement league in the US.
Boy this made the rounds yesterday but it is worth sharing again here this morning. I still feel like we're not getting all sides to this story, mainly that of MLSSoccer.com's editorial team. That group may come out looking the worst in all of this if you think about it. I won't go too much into my personal experience with that group (which is mostly positive) but I do know that teams have gotten beat writers there pushed out from time to time. It just happens. And if it isn't the team pushing the writer out, it is the editorial team making a change themselves.
Alright, that is all that I have for the moment.
