We're back after a day off for the holiday weekend here and now it is time to get back to work as FC Dallas moves on from their win over Columbus.

Five homegrown players in the lineup is a good thing and kind of a scary thing when you think about it. Either way, the win came right when the club needed it to on the road against a quality side.
Good ol Josh Lambo is doing alright for himself in his post-MLS days.

Here is Matt Doyle's usual weekend recap, since yesterday was a holiday some of you may have missed this one.
Plenty of good FCD discussion in here following the weekend.
Yeah, even though he'll miss a bunch of games with injuries or whatever, Didier Drogba came as good as advertised over the weekend.
I think a lot of clubs would do themselves some good by teaching their players some do's and don'ts of social media. You can always tell when FCD asks a player to remove a photo from Instagram or something like that.
Interesting discussion on young attacking players in this study. FCD has a few on their roster that aren't getting the time on the field for whatever reason. Though I do find it interesting that Mauro Diaz was left out of the list of players from FCD.

Klinsmann has a pretty young group of players with him this week as they downed Peru last weekend. Now they play Brazil, a team we all know can turn it on whenever they want.
While people may be tuned in on Neymar tonight, I'll be eager to see Douglas Costa, the speedy winger from Bayern Munich. It may be a homer thing to say, be Fabian Castillo's game remains me a lot of Costa's.
In the right format, and right group of players, Diskerud can be that guy. But just like with his club team, if one thing goes out of line he is rather useless.
