Pareja on the ASG, injuries and more | Dallas Morning News

While Pareja says he is surprised that no FCD player was named to the All-Star Game through the fan vote, I'm sure deep down its more of a relief.

Rain hasn't been a problem for the Toyota Stadium field | FCDallas.com

FCD removed the old turf shortly around the time that the Dallas area got one of the bigger rain storms earlier this spring, but it hasn't stopped the grounds crew from making sure the field is still one of the best in the league.

Gio dos Santos signing official in LA | MLSSoccer.com

We knew it was coming from a mile away but now LA has yet another big star added to their roster. I can't stress how big this signing is for them and the league. I just wish FCD would be able to get a Mexican player in their prime like him. It would do wonders to the attendance as we all know.

I have a feeling more clubs are going to start coming out of the woods here on this matter. Time for the USSF to step up and settle everything before it all gets real ugly.

T&T and Mexico play to wild draw, putting Mexico second in group | MLSSoccer.com

Man that game was insane, 4-4 draw with lots of late drama. Now the Mexicans have to battle Costa Rica in the quarter finals. That won't be an easy out for them.

While a lot of the Cuban players will likely defect to the US after the game, at least they're moving on to the next round.
