This week has gone by rather quickly here. Before we really dive into this weekend's game against Vancouver, we have some morning links to share.
// FC Dallas //
Not having any games for a couple weeks would do that to about anyone. Thank goodness his suspension ends after this weekend.
If you didn't catch the Aston Villa friendly, here is your chance to watch some highlights...or lowlights depending on where you stand.
The youth pipeline continues to do well. Congrats this this bunch!
Hey, we finally got to see him in goal for a little bit this week.
Here is another look at the wild and crazy preseason tour that the Dallas Tornados had back in the day.
// MLS //
We're certainly entering a new era in MLS with another NY club. It was funny, yesterday I got press releases from NYCFC and the Cosmos at the same time. Red Bulls gotta catch up I suppose but they still hold plenty of ground in my opinion in that market. Still crazy that they haven't signed a DP in two years.
Hate to see this happen but Jay DeMerit had to retire yesterday.
I want to be surprised when I read this but I'm not. Tim Howard says he won't return to MLS and part of me is okay with that. Good for him to close out his career with Everton.
A lot of people don't like the Frank Lampard signing for NYCFC but with it being only a two year deal, I think the club will get something good out of it.
Sigh. I really, really hope these talks with the local officials can get things worked out for D.C. United.
Still feels weird to see him in orange with Houston but DeMarcus Beasley is a good signing for the league. I keep telling myself that.
Yep, I really didn't care to dive into the Villa game before and after more than I did on this space. Most of you didn't seem to care al that much or voice that you wanted more from that game. Same goes for the other friendlies around the league. They are meaningless. Lets move on from them.
