Big D Daily: News for Friday, September 19, 2014

FCD heads to California today as they get set to take on the Galaxy.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The weekend is finally here as FC Dallas is getting ready to take on the LA Galaxy. We'll have a lot of preview material for you all today and tomorrow but first here are your Friday morning links.

// FC Dallas //

People in Dallas react to the new MLS logo |

Everyone had their opinions on the new MLS logo yesterday. 3rdDegree even got some local design folks opinions on the logo. Very interesting stuff. I'll admit that I showed this off to a few design people yesterday, all had fairly positive responses to the new look believe it or not. Then again this minimalist approach is a thing right now in the design world.

Top returns to FCD after loan spell |

It was certainly an up and down year for Jonathan Top in Arizona but by the end of it all he got some valuable playing time.

Keys to the Match |

Scott and Daniel break down tomorrow's big game in LA.

Story behind MLS Next |

Plenty more discussion on the new logo, but it is good to hear from the folks that came up with the look on how they did it.

Garber explains the timing of the new logo |

Honestly, the timing wasn't even an issue for me. Or probably for most of you. With the 20th season approaching it made a lot of sense really.

David Villa assesses MLS |

Some interesting comments from the NYCFC star. Even more so that he thinks Europe needs to adopt the playoff structure that MLS has. That will be sure to piss off some folks.

RSL set to install the league's larges video board | RSL Soapbox

I gotta admit, I'm a tad jealous of RSL getting something like this in their stadium. The two small video boards at Toyota Stadium are kind of worthless. Plus, after seeing a large one in person at Sporting Park, it is just such a night and day difference.

Garber comments on possible hiatus for Chivas | The Goat Parade

He didn't flat out say that they would go on hiatus but he didn't really deny anything about it either.

Sacramento actually tried to buy Chivas USA |

Apparently the USL club tried to buy the woeful LA side. I know most of you are saying, let it happen but MLS really wants two teams in LA. Like really, really bad. Just the same way they wanted two teams in NYC so badly.

Arena fined $20k for comments | LAG Confidential


Run of play with six weeks to go | Sounder at Heart

Numbers to know today, we're back up to 99.1 chance to get into the playoffs with a 0.3 chance at the Supporters' Shield. Ha.

Well that is all I have for this morning, feel free to comment on items below and discuss this weekend's game if you feel like it.
