Garcia continues to be a man on the move | Dallas Morning News

Danny Garcia has been between Dallas and Phoenix all year. Making the bench last weekend in Columbus was a positive sign that Garcia is improving here with his loan in the USL.

Cirigliano makes much-waited debut | Dallas Soccer News

A lot of fans have been patiently waiting for Ezequiel Cirigliano to appear on the field with FC Dallas. His limited time on Sunday against Columbus was good, now he has to figure out a way to crack the starting lineup.

Rooney is on Garber's must-have list for MLS | ESPNFC.com
