A couple more days until FCD heads to Seattle.

Monday's game is expected to be a sellout in Seattle but first we have some daily links to discuss on this Friday.

Pareja turns to youth to spark FCD | SI.com

A really good piece from SI on how Oscar Pareja has used younger players to his advantage this year in Dallas. Good to see some national recognition for this.

Akindele turns down Canada for potential US camp | Goal.com

Some sources for Goal.com seem to think that Tesho Akindele will join the US team this month for their November friendlies.

Watson provides versitiliaty in every role | FCDallas.com

Midfield, center back, full back...it doesn't matter to Je-Vaughn Watson where he plays. To me, I'm just glad he has settled well at right back here.

FCD defense doing the small things against Seattle | MLSSoccer.com

Always impressive to see how well the FCD defense is doing but more so when they are able to bottle up a strike force like Seattle.

Schmid expects Diaz back | SBISoccer.com

I think it may be safe to think that he will be back on Monday. That should mean that Andres Escobar comes off the bench.

FCD shows false dominance | Sounder at Heart

I laughed a little when reading this. Are Sounders fans really that scared? I get that FCD doesn't always play a pretty game but just that last line in this post cracks me up.

He was certainly huge for Seattle in the first game. Hopefully FCD can find some holes in the defense to give him a little more trouble this time.

It won't be too the rafters full but at close to 40k, it will still be very loud on Monday night.

Mia Hamm discusses her role with LAFC | SI.com

I still think it is pretty cool to hear that she is taking on some roles with some big clubs, did you know she was on the board for Roma?

List of MLS players called up for international duty in November | MLSSoccer.com

I don't think this list is anywhere near being complete but we do see that Raul Fernandez has been called up by Peru.

Alright that is all that I have for now. What do you make of Monday's game right now? Lets discuss that and anything else on your mind below.
