FC Dallas began preseason training over the weekend.

A bit of a in case you missed it over the weekend as one of our new writers dives into some things that could be better with the culture of the club.
It isn't every day or even every season that FCD goes out and buys a player for over a million dollars. Its been a long time since they last paid this much money on a player.
Another newcomer had some words to say about his new club. Nice words too.
In some ways it feels like ages since we last heard Oscar Pareja speak. Its certainly good to be back.
The midfield looks pretty set after the last two signings but there is still work left to do.

Matt Doyle is starting to do his usual preseason material where he looks at a couple teams at a time. This one is interesting for those curious about our old pal Brek Shea.
The other big saga in MLS this offseason has been Didier Drogba and whether or not he was leaving the Impact to return to Chelsea. It looks like right now he'll be with the Impact.
When owners or front office folks hype up a potential DP signing, it gets fans excited. But when it drags on a bit longer than fans would like, then things get a bit interesting. New England fans are currently in the state of 'what the hell is going on?'
Honestly, that is a fair comparison when you really think about it in terms of impact on a team and league.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if this eventually happens. Both sides need to come together to work towards a common goal and both need to really hear the other out.
