Time for a little game day edition of the morning links as FC Dallas is in Colorado getting set to take on the Rapids tonight.

It was great to see Kellyn Acosta back in Frisco this week as he returned from the U-20 World Cup where he showed fairly well.

Truthfully, I wouldn't start him tonight against the Rapids. Give him one more week to recover before facing Houston at home.

Barrios finally hitting his stride following USOC game | MLSSoccer.com

Two goals on Tuesday in the USOC win over OKC have a lot of people hoping to see more of Michael Barrios tonight. I'll say this, even though for a while I've thought he was just a second coming of Andres Escobar, that run he had against OKC on Tuesday was something else that gives me hope that he will be more than that.

I'm sure Seattle will say all the right things right now as they wait to see what happens to Clint Dempsey.

A very interesting poll conducted here with quotes to boot. The one on Jurgen Klinsmann was certainly interesting to read. I'd love to see more honest takes on these subjects from players.

It seems like it has been a year or more since we last saw the best of the young Revs Homegrown.

I saw this somewhere else but can we get John Oliver to moderate a debate between all the candidates? Surely he would do it if he were asked. I'm sure people would tune in more for that debate than the US presidential debates that will happen next year.
