The weekend is nearly here as FC Dallas is getting set to take on Seattle. We'll have plenty on that game coming up today and tomorrow but first here are your morning links.

Some interesting comments from Oscar following yesterday's practice. The big thing to note is that Matt Hedges is day-to-day right now.
After giving up six goals in two games, Dan Kennedy wanted to make sure that he didn't give up a thing against San Jose. Now lets hope he can follow that shutout up with another in Seattle this weekend.
One goal in three games isn't what we would normally expect out of this group. I'm still shocked that they only have one goal from a set piece here this season.

FCD is in some tough groups in both age brackets.
Boy, I know we laugh at silly things the Hunts do from time to time but this one is rather amusing.
It shouldn't be a shock that Orlando City is interested in Dwyer, a guy that helped push them into the spotlight a couple years ago while they were in the USL. But they need to learn to play it cool.
So Robbie Keane isn't going anywhere anytime soon. That's good for LA.
I have to admit, I thought it was a long shot to see Ibarra in MLS before Minnesota joined the league in a couple of years but it is a bummer to me that he is going off to Mexico. Still, kudos to Minnesota for selling him now while he is hot and before MLS can take part of the profits.

Is there any room left on the Bobby Wood bandwagon? Seriously, two goals in two big friendlies over the last week have been something else for a guy that most didn't care for the last time we saw him.
So we're basically the best team in the world right now!
