The month of January is nearly over here for us as we get a United States national team game tonight with FCD defender Matt Hedges. We'll have a preview of that up shortly but first lets get into some morning headlines.

Toja trains with FCD | Dallas Morning News

Former fan favorite Juan Toja was back in Frisco this week training with the boys. He's a free agent but I'm not sure he fits with this club just yet. We'll see. There is also some updates on Je-Vaughn Watson and what is going on with his contract.

The pursuit of free agency in MLS | SI.com

I linked to this in the daily yesterday but it was worth another share. If you are looking for the most in-depth look at the CBA, here is your read. Seriously, go read it again if you did yesterday. I'm sure you missed a point or two in it. I know I did.

Red Bulls making play for Sacha | LAG Confidential

Cahill looks to leave New York | Once a Metro

The saga that is Tim Cahill is nearing an end game here. As much as I'd hate to see him leave the league, it just doesn't seem like he is committed to the Red Bulls as much as he was when he arrived there.

Expanding the MLS playoffs is a terrible idea | Soccer Gods

Our old pal Steve Davis has some solid points on this subject. I get the reasoning for expanding it now so they don't have to do it again later but it is still a silly idea.

Alright, that appears to be all for now. What say you this morning?
