FC Dallas is up in Canada today as they get set to take on Vancouver tonight in a big match.

FCD shifts to playoff mode | Dallas Morning News

I like the attitude of the players right now. Following the Houston game, a lot of them were already in the mindset that they need to play all the remaining regular season games like playoff games. Hopefully that mentality works and they continue winning here.

MLS to air on Fox Sports Latin America | MLSSoccer.com

This is yet another big deal for the league as they are now going to be aired in a butt-load of countries in Central and South America. This may be a bigger deal than some of the other TV deals that they signed earlier this year. More folks can now see Fabian Castillo dominate.

Whitecaps feel pressure but happy to control their own destiny | MLSSoccer.com

Vancouver just needs a point tonight to clinch a playoff berth. I'd be happy to see FCD extend their wait to get into the playoffs by another two weeks or so.

DCU's biggest injury loss has been Arnaud | Black and Red United

While Davy Arnaud may not be the best player on the DC roster, his leadership was definitely a key element in that locker room. Kind of like if FCD were to lose someone like Blas Perez to an injury. Maybe not identical but very similar.

Sounders hope bye week helps heal Marshall and Valdez | Sounder at Heart

Speaking of injuries, Seattle really hopes this week is good to them in terms of not adding to any more injuries. Not a bad time of the year to get a bye week if you ask me.

Orlando setting their sights extremely high on transfer market | NBC Sports

They want them some Zlatan. As much as I want my favorite Swede in MLS, I really don't know if I like the idea of him in Orlando purple. Then again I would really only like to see him in Dallas but we know that will never happen.

Donovan: Klinsmann needs to hold himself to the same standards as his players | Stars and Stripes FC

*shots fired* Whoa boy. I have a couple thoughts on these comments from Landon Donovan. First, I absolutely love that he is voicing his opinions on matters like this, we actually do need more of that in the mainstream media. Second, he's totally right. In many, many other countries Klinsmann would have been fired after the Gold Cup, let alone the friendly against Brazil. Still, I don't see him getting canned anytime soon no matter what happens this weekend.
