Not a bad weekend for FC Dallas fans.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

I don't know about you but I feel nice and rested after having the weekend off. FC Dallas got a few fair results over the weekend, setting up a big final month of play. We'll dive into those things and more but first here are your morning links.

Pass it wide |

There isn't a ton of new FCD news so just incase you missed this one last week on the effects of solid wing play out of FCD.

TFC earns biggest win and more in Week 29 |

Plenty of good comments from the weekend in their big recap. Toronto picked up an enormous win while LA absolutely hammered New York. Vancouver beating RSL certainly makes things interesting for FCD.

Donovan ties Ralston's assist mark |

Looks like Landon Donovan won't just go down as the goal king in MLS history but also the assist king as well.

Will Johnson breaks leg |

Tough times for the Timbers as their big leader Will Johnson will be out for six months now. Really bad timing on that but sometimes that is just how soccer goes.

Houston has no comment on Kinnear situation | Dynamo Theory

Okay, this one is an odd one to say the least. Over the weekend it was being reported that the Dynamo would give permission to the Quakes for them to interview Dominic Kinnear for their head coaching job. The thing is, San Jose hasn't fired Mark Watson. So it looks like those two clubs are in for a real fun winter.

MLS CBA on the horizon | Washington Post

We're really only a couple months away from CBA talks in MLS. Oh boy.

Sacramento lifts USL PRO crown in first year |

I'll tell you this, Sacramento continues to look and feel like what Orlando did when they started in the USL. Good team, solid foundation with the locals, lots of momentum. Right now it looks like the USL is their league to run with Orlando moving out. I think Sacramento will follow.

Best glitches in FIFA 15 | Fox Soccer

I love a good glitch in a game that makes me laugh. Nearly every game has them and FIFA 15 is no exception.

That is all for this morning, hope your Monday treats you well.
