FCD Links: News for Friday February 7, 2014

Agudelo scores in Holland, preseason and more

Today will be the final day of voting for the new post title for this daily link article. Looks like we have a neck and neck race between Hoop du Jour and Big D Daily.

Hopefully these links help get your Friday started off in the right direction.

Soccer tennis rules the UAE trip |

Gosh I can't wait for them to actually start playing real, meaningful games here.

Week 1 in UAE Recap |

Nice recap of all the photos, tweets, videos, etc. from the club in the Middle East.

Academy boast the larges national signing day class |

I never got around to writing anything up about this, so, here is the full story from the club. Impressive 65 boys and girls head to college from the FCD system.

Orlando fires first shot at Miami |

Neither team has played a second in MLS but they're already beginning to work on that rivalry thing. Good. I like it.

MLS 101: Weighted Lottery | Fox Soccer

A little backstory on how the weighted lottery system in MLS works. I have a feeling we'll see a few more of these this year, just too bad FCD won't be able to participate.

Video teaser of FIFA 2014 World Cup | YouTube

I used to love the World Cup editions of FIFA. They always seemed to have something special about them.

Bruce Arena given contract extension |

I can't argue with giving this man an extension there in LA. While he may have some crazy good resources, he has put them to work to the fullest over the years.

Juan Agudelo opens up his European account |

Good to see him doing some positive work in Holland. While Stoke City was an interesting landing spot for him, I think getting the loan to Holland was the best possible place for him.

Bob Costas said 'Pussy Riot' on TV last night |

Oh Bob. Oh Bob.

And lastly, our stadium tour today takes us to Estadio Algarve in Portugal.
