Time to really ramp up the Houston hate here as FC Dallas has a couple more training sessions before hosting the Dynamo on Sunday.

The core group of this team that went to the playoffs (and didn't lose by the way) is still intact. That group will be a big part in the success of how far this team can go in the playoffs this year.
I sort of forgot that the club was still doing these each month. I'm kind of bummed that I haven't taken the time to buy any of them this year (though not being able to do so online was a big reason).
Houston's manager is calling this the biggest game of the season for the Orange.

One game down in Olympic qualifying for the US and it was a good one too.
Geez, once again, as much as fans here have hated how things have gone with the ticketing mess for next year from this front office, at least you aren't in Chicago. Man, they have it rough up there at the moment.
Good question that kind of goes unanswered in this piece. DCU have been struggling as of late and appear to be a team more on the decline going into the post season than anyone else in the East.
I hate saying it, but I think we're starting to get to the cookie-cutter status with MLS stadiums these days. This one looks cool and I am excited to see it come true but nothing about it jumps off the page.
Ouch. Still, that doesn't sound nearly as bad as it could have been with the way things were being reported at first.
All you stat nerds (like myself) will enjoy reading through some of this. I don't think it paints the best picture about how the league has grown but it does show off some fancy graphs.
Woah, this is some pretty big news for Union fans. Most of the fan base really loathed Nick Sakiewicz and now they finally get their wish as he is leaving the team.
