A bit of a last call on yesterday's piece about the contracts that FCD has up right now. Plenty to discuss and think about here this week.

Five storylines for MLS Cup |

As much as people won't like this match up in the Cup final, it does present some interesting stories. I love the Darlington Nagbe and Wil Trapp matchup. That is going to be a fun one to see.

Uh, yes please. This stadium doesn't have a super wow factor like a Sporting Park but it is pretty darn close to it. Something tells me that Sacramento gets an expansion bid here in the next couple of weeks.
