FCD continues to get ready for Colorado this week.

The week continues to roll on here as we're at the midway point. We have plenty more to get to today but first lets dive into some morning links.

Pareja mum on Tissue Gate | Dallas Morning News

As you'd expect, Oscar Pareja and the club seem to want to put last Saturday behind them. Some of you will be happy to know that this link also states that the team isn't interested in Kenny Cooper.

Diaz close to full return |

Mauro Diaz has been practicing this week folks. I would be a bit shocked at this point if he didn't go on Friday night but anything can happen between now and then.

Montreal advances in classic match in Costa Rica |

Big news for the league but also for the Impact as they advance to the CCL finals. Now can Montreal do it in the finals against either another Costa Rican side or Club America?

More on the Impact advancing | Mouth Royal Soccer

So many points from this game worth mentioning. The fact that this team was the worst in MLS last year, probably won't reach the playoffs again this year, has a few Chivas USA castoffs, and has Frank Klopas as their manager still manages to advance in this tournament. We also can't ignore how they were treated in Costa Rica too, man that scene was rough.

Rio Tinto set to be powered by solar panels | RSL Soapbox

A bit of cool news out of Utah, the RSL stadium will soon be mostly powered by the sun. I would ask why that isn't being done here in Dallas but I'm sure oil has a bit to do with that thought.

A pretty interesting look at how Zardes is doing with the USMNT and how it effects things with his club.

Part 1: What's up with DCU's attendance? | Black and Red United

Boy, seeing some of the tables in this about attendance and previous FCD attendance really puts things into perspective as to where we are now. I know the gate numbers this year have been disappointing to a lot of you but it could be far worse.

Purple Power, how Orlando is proving to be an early success |

So far there is no denying the good vibes that Orlando City has going for them. I think it will be even better in the years to come when they are in their own digs and not the Citrus Bowl.

Alright, that looks to be it this morning, what do you all have to say today?
