Monday's game is expected to be a sellout in Seattle but first we have some daily links to discuss on this Friday.
// FC Dallas //
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.
Some sources for Goal.com seem to think that Tesho Akindele will join the US team this month for their November friendlies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
// MLS //
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.
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?
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.
