We're at the end of another month...thankfully FCD is still unbeaten since the beginning of June.

The month of August is nearly here for FC Dallas. We'll have plenty on that subject coming up but first some morning links.

It made sense for both parties according to the club's technical director. I totally agree with that.

Toyota Stadium named to best of Big D | D Magazine

Very cool to see the folks at the club get their hard work paid off in this kind of recognition.

Not confirming but the Fire express interest in Jones | MLSSoccer.com

Everyone is interested, it just is a matter of how much they can spend and if they can land him this summer.

Revs get back in the win column | MLSSoccer.com

Boy they beat up on the Rapids in a big way last night, 3-0. That is a good result for FCD.

Chicago and Vancouver do what they do best, tie a game | MLSSoccer.com

Seriously, these two teams have talent but neither know how to actually win consistently in this league.

Could soccer be #1 in Canada? | Eight Six Forever

Brian Ching on Eddie Johnson | Dynamo Theory

Ching is dead on about this here with EJ. When the guy wants to be good he is.

Ha. They really don't. But in other news either rookie Andre Blake or Zac MacMath are on the trading block. Hmm.

Soccer doesn't look great in Yankee Stadium | SBNation.com

Sure, on TV it didn't appear all that great but I knew a couple people at the Man City-Liverpool game that thought it was rather awesome. But that may have had something to do with seeing Liverpool. I still think for a temporary spot, it will work for NYCFC and the league.
