Scarf of the month is deep in the heart of Texas | FCDallas.com

I sort of forgot about the club's scarf of the month promotion here as we moved into a new month. I haven't gotten one all year long because of the lack of online purchase ability. But I do like this one.

He'a already tied the rookie mark for goals in a season. I know there is some serious love for Chicago's Matt Polster out there (mainly by people that work for MLSSoccer.com), but I don't see a way that Cyle Laren doesn't win the ROY this year.

Chattanooga FC moves into NPSL final in front of record crowd | FreeTimesPress

Dang, nearly 10,000 showed up for a NPSL game. I'll continue to hint at this but Tennessee is part of the 'soccer map' that really needs a team in one of the three bigger leagues in the US.
