Another page on the calendar flips over as the offseason begins.
// FC Dallas //
I don't think we'll see Oscar Pareja go away from his youth approach here with this club. Sure, there will be rocky spots with how young players react to situations but overall it will be better for the long run.
The silver linings are all around this club right now. A great regular season that was an inch or two away from a Supporters' Shield. A deeper playoff run than anyone would have imagined.
Getting two players on the league's Best XI for a season is no easy task but when you have a team like FCD, it was bound to happen once people started to take notice of this group.
Yep. So much to be thankful for with this club.
// MLS //
Some don't like the higher seed hosting a MLS Cup but you have to like hearing that this sucker got sold out very quickly for this weekend.
Good piece here on how this one writer expects FCD to bounce back from this playoff exit next year.
Just so you know, this isn't about FCD.
Just when David Beckham and his ownership group get close to a stadium deal, something happens and everything falls apart. I think it is high time the league puts in Sacramento over Miami.
What is more interesting here is that we're zeroing in on the two year mark from when Beckham announced that he wanted a team in Miami.
So NYCFC's owners aren't just oil rich, they're now China rich. Maybe they should build a stadium in the heart of Chinatown.
