We're slowly rolling along this week as FC Dallas enjoys some time off.
// FC Dallas //
Sunday just proved how far FCD has to go to get to that top level of play in this league.
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.

Rumor has it that Gaston Fernandez is heading to Argentina instead of somewhere else in MLS.
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.
United continues the ever slow march towards their own soccer stadium. For a quicker grab at what appears to be new renderings, head over to the Washington Post. Gosh I hope those renderings there aren't the right ones. That stadium looks bland compared to the renderings we've seen a couple times this year.
In other news, players are still upset over the latest CBA. Fun.
Apparently on Saturday there was a lot of issues between the Red Bull supporters and the security in the stadium at PPL Park. I think part of the problem there is having the visitors section right next to the Son's of Ben.
He had plenty of positive things to say about the league including how he plans to play in it someday soon. I'd take him here in Dallas.
The CONCACAF Champions League is back in full force with a couple of FCD's western rivals being involved.
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.
