We're only one week away from the World Cup!

Sarah Glenn

Can you believe that this time next week, the World Cup will be kicking off? Crazy!

Getting personal with Zach Loyd |

An interesting new series over at the FCD website that gets to know some of the players a little more.

He may be with a lower division team here in town but Bryan Levya appears to be happy with where he is going.

Former FCD midfielder Alvarez showing well with El Salvador |

I had to look it up, Auturo Alvarez plays in Hungary. Yeah, seriously.

Colorado and Chicago play to scoreless draw |

The Rapids did a little squad rotation last night in their 0-0 draw to Chicago. Very curious to see if that worked out for them this weekend or not.

Montreal claims Canadian title |

I guess the Impact are this year's D.C. United in a small way. Crappy team that wins a title. Good for them.

Villa to play in Melbourne before suiting up in NYC |

This isn't a shocker at all, NYCFC will want their new star to be game-fit for the 2015 season, so getting him some minutes in Melbourne will do it.

Ouch. Things could be worse for us here in Dallas after all.

McCarty to get knee surgery | Once a Metro

Poor Dax, I hate seeing that for him.

Orlando City USL side moving north to Kentucky |

Once Orlando joins MLS, their USL side will move to Louisville to begin play there. Really cool place for a USL team in my opinion. They'll have a nice stadium to play in and that is a small market that will do very well in that league.

Klinsmann wants to leave his stamp on the US team |

This is a fairly length piece but damn it is worth a read. Some very interesting nuggets in there as well from Bruce Arena and others.

Alright folks, get to talking. Anyone hit up the game last night? It looked like we had a pretty packed house to see Drogba and company run over El Salvador.
