You can tell the season is nearly here as every MLS team is hyping up this weekend in various ways. FC Dallas is handing out free food and other things this week to excite fans about Saturday. We'll get into that later but first here are your morning links.
// FC Dallas //
Loads of chats, interviews and more with the club today. Should be loads of fun.
Lots of optimism in this piece. Lots of it.
More optimism, this time from the league's website.
This one is in video form. Lots of interesting takes on the team, most on point really. Our pal Jay Neal even makes an appearance in this one. Good job Jay!
And one more preview to get your going today.
// MLS //
This one is a fairly long interview, 10 minutes can really cover a lot of ground when you have a talker like Lalas.
Instead of staying in his hometown and working for the new LAFC team in 2017, Carlos Bocanegra opts to go east and work for Atlanta as their first technical director.
Plenty of interesting points from a fairly blunt guy in Boswell. Still, things are sound somewhat optimistic at turning around here.
After all of these years the Crew finally have someone else's name to be on their stadium.
Perhaps you don't like Doyle, or perhaps you do.
I think the big thing here is seeing that owners like Clark Hunt and Robert Kraft are at the table for MLS right now. Two super conservative owners that helped saved the league back in the day, trying to keep free agency from being a thing.
I totally want MLS players to go to the table and say 'Boom. Lawyered.'
Alright then, more CBA talk.
Crazy how far things have come and how New England has yet to do a damn thing with their logo. (hey good for them too)
This isn't entirely FCD-related but it definitely shows why FC Dallas made the jump to Frisco ten years ago instead of being closer to Dallas.
Alright, there is a ton there for you to digest with your breakfast. Hit us up below to let us know what you think.
