Big D Daily: News for Monday, January 19, 2015

A little Martin Luther King Day edition of the links.

I don't know about all of you but it was absolutely great here in Dallas weather wise this weekend. I hardly looked at anything online, so we have plenty to get to this morning. Crazy to think we're one week away from the start of preseason camps in MLS.

Five big preseason questions | Dallas Morning News

Plenty of interesting nuggets to look at in this one. We have a pretty big list of our own questions that we'll be diving into this week before FCD hits their preseason camp.

Toronto set to announce Sebastian Giovinco | Waking the Red

A young attacker from Juventus in his prime, uh yeah...this is possibly a Bloody Big Deal 2.0 up in Canada.

Bradley gets his first assist in 2015 by helping land Jozy |

Jozy Altidore wants to be in Toronto for the long haul here. Which is good to hear considering that outside of his time in Holland, he hasn't really had a period of time with a club that worked out well for him. Basically he needs to be in Toronto for a while and Toronto needs him to be there for a while.

RBNY Town Hall summary | Once A Metro

I don't know if the brass in New York saved face enough on Friday with their town hall meeting but at least they were honest about things. I'll give them that.

MLS Draft 2015: We Went There | Hudson River Blue

Here is a pretty cool telling of last week's draft as some fans share their experience of going for the first time. I really wish Dallas could host the NSCAA convention some time so the draft could be here.

FCD got a solid B from the TDS guys. Definitely a fair grade for one pick.

Why MLS could be headed to a work stoppage | Deadspin

This one comes from our old pal Bobby Warshaw. Seriously, if you haven't read this yet, do it now. We'll wait for you to come back and comment on it.

U-20s stay on course with 2-0 win |

The win was good but the bigger note for FCD fans is that Kellyn Acosta left to return to Texas to be evaluated by the FCD medical staff.

Alright, that is all that I have for now, lets get rolling on the comments below.
