The Houston hate week rolls closer to Friday here as FC Dallas gets ready for battle with the Dynamo.

For whatever reason, hearing that the club has one open roster slot available right now seems so...incorrect to me. Probably it is because there are a hand full of players not being used at the moment.
Lately the club has been practicing in the evenings to help deal with the heat. Truthfully, I think it is a wise change this time of year and not to mention a good way to shake things up during this winless rut.
No one is a fan of losing Mauro, but hopefully you'll take this as motivation to score a couple on Friday.
A nice must-see video on the behind the curtain stuff with the cannon.

FCD has five players going to the big tournament.
Very interesting situation going on in Salt Lake with their star striker.
I keep reminding myself these last couple weeks that it could be way worse for FCD here. Just look at Colorado.
Or look at Philly.
The former technical boss of the Red Bulls misses the fans and everything about the Big Apple.
I've been saying for a while now that I am shocked that FCD hasn't taken the African markets more serious to scout players. This link says Salomon Kalou is available and would come to MLS. I'd take him.

The goal this year has always been to win the Gold Cup and this is a roster that can do it.
