I hope those of your who had yesterday off from work/school enjoyed it. I know I certainly used the time wisely to catch up on somethings. Now it is time to get back to business here with some morning links start our day out.
// FC Dallas //
A little ICYMI to start things out, we asked yesterday is FCD doing themselves a disservice from waiting around on the new CBA.
// MLS //
Their offense does look and sound good on paper right now but with Sebastian Giovinco not coming until July, it may be a while before we really see what this team can be. Speaking of Giovinco, I heard yesterday on SiriusXM FC radio that some believe Giovinco could be a younger and better version of what David Ferreira was when he came to MLS. Something to ponder.
I'm still not convinced that what the Fire have done this offseason will make any impact in the regular season. But I've been dead wrong about teams before in this league (ie, that San Jose team a couple years ago that blew through the regular season).
Some of the DP signings this winter have been interesting but none may interest me as much as this one in Montreal. A Belgian defender that is still in his prime. Yes, please.
The only real explanation to this is that MLS is lining up Arsenal as the opponent. Why else would you have this game there for a second time (they hosted it back in 2007 against Celtic).
Speaking of the Rapids, they landed another new midfielder yesterday in Sam Cronin. That's a quality pickup as far as I am concerned. Between that and Marcelo Sarves, the Rapids midfield looks pretty good right now.
This is a fun look at those boys of 2012 that shocked the world by beating some MLS sides in the USOC. Crazy how many guys Eric Wynalda helped along the way, I really had no idea how many he brought into the NASL with him in Atlanta.
Alright, that looks to be it for now, what do you all have to say today?
