Offseason mode is really gearing up around these parts but we also get some nice distractions with another US game today against Ireland. But lets dive into some links before all of that kicks off.

The club had three guys on international duty this weekend and two of them did plenty of work. Good to see Kellyn Acosta lead the US U-20s right now.

It feels like the league website is getting a head start on over-hyping this series.
A fairly impressive start for this group to have that many members. Makes me wonder what the FCD supporter group membership numbers look like.
First off, Jeff Bradley is back and writing about soccer again. I think that is a big deal. Second of all, he wants Bradley Wright-Phillips as league MVP. Uh, no. Please no. Just because he scored 27 goals doesn't automatically mean he is the league's most valuable player.
I can't say there is much disagreement with these items. The biggest in my mind are numbers two and three but four is also key too.
A fairly long piece but certainly one worth reading this morning. Basically the USSF is looking at systems in Europe to see how they do it and how we can do it better.

Alright folks, that is it for now. What do you all have today?
