FC Dallas' weekend opponent is in action tonight.

The weekend is inching closer but we're only at the midway point of the week. Time for some morning links to get us all started.

Yeah some weird questions in this but hey, at least some local sports talk radio is finally getting the idea that covering this team is a good idea.

FCD working to bring Sanchez back | Soccerly

Yep, while some rumors had Richard Sanchez going to Chivas USA on loan from Tigres, now it appears FCD and Tigres are working on a deal to delay his transfer to the Mexican side. Remember, these two clubs have a history of working together so a delay in a transfer for a young keeper like this isn't too shocking. Good for FCD is it comes through while Chris Seitz is out.

Scouting report, can NE put up a five-spot on LA? | MLSSoccer.com

New England enters tonight's match in LA on a five-game bender. Oh and they travel this weekend to Dallas. Not a bad thing to get them on short rest from the west coast.

Dom Dwyer a Yank? | MLSSoccer.com

Hey if he is willing to become a US citizen and continue working hard like he is this season with SKC, I see no reason why he couldn't eventually get a USMNT look.

Folks, this club needs more than one or two players. The lack of production out of their bash brothers has put a damper on what this team can do with Chris Wondolowski.

Lots of clubs want their hands on SKC's young defender. Hopefully if they do sell, they get a lot of money back for him.

Tough times for the Crew, but they have plenty of money to go spend on the transfer window now. So maybe they can salvage their season after all.

The year soccer went mainstream | SBNation.com

I continue to hear random places, like ESPN Radio shows, talking about the impact of soccer this summer. If the World Cup success can translate well for MLS, we're going to see some big things happen here.

What an American World Cup will be like again | SBNation.com

It continues to be a matter of when, not if. Good points here about stadium stuff to consider. The US is the one place (outside of maybe England or Germany) where the stadiums don't need to be built for a World Cup. It all comes down to which ones to use.
