I don't know about you, but I am ready for some fireworks tomorrow.

I prefaced the rumor the other day as pure silliness. Now we know for sure what the club thinks about it.
We poked a few holes at this yesterday during the chat on Twitter. Most of our writers actually asked some questions too but this is spot on about the chat itself. Too many canned responses that people see right through. It isn't like a message board where people can hide behind screen names either. Hunt and who ever is sitting with him during these chats needs to hit the reset button on this idea. From what started as a good way for fans to talk with Dan have turned into just bitch sessions.
Oh yeah, there is another game tomorrow night! Time to scout the Revs.
It wasn't just set piece defending that cost them that game. The defending was terrible from all aspects of the field.

Charles Renken was expected at one point to be the next big thing. But just like with other youth stars, things didn't go quite as planned.
I always pass the lottery billboards and think, "if I won that I would totally try to buy FCD." I guess someone else is having that thought too up in Philly.
We touched on this the other day but here is some more details on the potential new roster rule.
We may put together a list of players for FCD during the Gold Cup as well.

While I'd like to think there are better reasons as to why the US women have been so good all of these years, this one may make the most sense.
I can't stress this enough when watching this group play. It is a totally different style and mentality out there but at least the goal is still the same. Maybe if Alex Morgan scores the game-winner on Sunday she can do her best Brandi Chastain impression.
