Oh yeah, there is still club action going on this week as FCD gets ready for Orlando. But the Dallas manager did give his take as to what it has been like having four national teams in town this week.

Gerrard insists this isn't a holiday | MLSSoccer.com

We always wonder how veteran players like Steven Gerrard will do in MLS. He seems eager to give the league a go here and I wonder how he will respond with the travel more than anything else. That took David Beckham a while to get used to.

The US didn't look their best in the opener but I almost think they'll go the route of the women's team during the group phase of this competition and not look amazing until they reach the knockout round.

It did look as though Clint Dempsey put this team on his back and helped guide them to a gritty three points.
