The playoffs are here folks.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

We are in playoff mode folks. The Knockout Round here is as FC Dallas host the Vancouver Whitecaps tonight. Before we give you our previews, time to get through some daily links.

Experience is everything and oddly enough FCD has a tad more experience than the Whitecaps do.

FCD is ready to go |

Indeed they have earned this. Time to make the most of it though.

No one is really talking about FCD. Lets play up that underdog role.

When you feel at home, that is always a big reason to stick around for a few more years.

A note on the past and future of Chivas USA | The Goat Parade

If you haven't kept up with the fine folks at the SBN Chivas USA blog, do yourself a favor and head over there this morning. They've done fine work over the years and hopefully will continue to do so while they wait on a new club to call their own.

Tally Hall is heading to Orlando | Dynamo Theory

Well, we know Orlando won't be taking a keeper in the expansion draft. Either way, Hall is a big pickup for Orlando if he returns to his 2013 form (and health).

Youth development, are we heading in the right direction? |

One last item here for the day, but I do want to touch a bit on the troubling situation with the Chivas youth academy, which did do well over the years. Now, like its senior club, they too will be shut down here soon. That is troubling for the new LA club and in a way for the youth growth in the country. I gotta think that Mexican teams are going to be picking apart the Chivas academy as much as they can here.

Alright, that is all that I have for right now. We have plenty of previews for tonight's game coming up. Who is ready for tonight?
