Escobar has hamstring issues | Dallas Morning News

Oh boy, it seems like the hamstring issues are starting to creep up again here for FC Dallas. But hey, we've made it nearly half way through the season before it became a big deal. Progress right?

FCD hasn't kept momentum since beating Houston in May | Dallas Morning News

They got the win against LA shortly after beating Houston but it has been nearly all down hill since then.

Keys to the match |

The FCD digital guys give us their take on what is important to look for in tonight's game.

FCD U-17 capture regional championship |

Always great to hear how well the academy players are doing.

Academy playoff teams look to finish group stage on good notes |

The U-16s look like they are in good position while the U-18s need a bit of luck to continue on here.

Houston has always been top rival for FCD Homegrowns |

They are your rival today, tomorrow and always.

The kick that ignited the FCD-Houston rivalry |

Oh yes, the infamous Ricardo Clark kick to Carlos Ruiz. I remember that like it was yesterday.

Atlanta club name leaked |

So they're going with a boring Atlanta United FC? Wow. That is just beyond bad in my mind considering we'll have D.C. and Minnesota using the United names. Funny to think that Atlanta and Minnesota could join the league at the same time using basically the same name.

Dempsey gets ban from USOC |

So six games or two years, whichever is longer. Alright then.

I personally think it is splitting hairs but I'd lean towards Sebastian Giovinco at this point just because of age.

Guzan believe MLS has grown a lot | CSN Chicago

I don't think we'll see Brad Guzan back in MLS any time soon but I can think of a number of clubs that would jump as high as he would ask them to if he were to return to the league.

US must tweak approach to win |

I don't want them to tweak their defensive approach at all but something has to be done about how that midfield group is playing.

Why Germany or France will be eliminated too soon from the Cup |

I'd hope the argument from the US stand point is that both teams will be sent packing too soon.
