The week rolls into the middle as we're inching our way towards the weekend.

Figueroa a perfect fit for the backline |

A guy that has a ton of experience, who can play on the wings or in the middle. Definitely a guy that Oscar Pareja goes for here. Good to see we only had to part with some regular ol' allocation money and not any of that good TAM.

Rookies picking up pace |

It seems like this year is the first one in a while where FCD has a slew of rookies in camp trying to make the roster. Its still going to be more interesting to see which ones make it and which ones make it but get immediately loaned out to OKC.

Cocktails and cleats set for March 3 |

Mark your calendars now, this is when the new primary jersey will be unveiled.

When will MLS be a top league in the world? | Brotherly Game

The goal has always been out there for the league to be the primary destination for players across the world. But its still going to be a long time before that is going to happen.

Kamara holding out for a new contract | Massive Report

Anytime you score a boat load of goals in a single season like Kei Kamara did last year, you should be due a big fat check.

Is NYCFC's stadium search over? | Hudson River Blue

Apparently there is new money being floated around that could go towards a NYCFC stadium. I'm not sure I buy all of that though. Just like with any rumored stadium in this league, I believe it when dirt is moving and shovels are in the ground.

San Jose's secondary jersey leaked | Center Line Soccer

Hot damn, that is a heck of a jersey. The more I look at it, the more I want one, even if it is the Quakes.

Miazga set to join an unnamed EPL side |

That does not sound good for the Red Bulls who have really spent this offseason re-signing players and adding HGPs. Matt Miazga being sold is a pretty big deal for this league if he goes to a decent EPL side.

Howard interested in deal with Rapids |

The on and off again talk about Tim Howard and Colorado continues to roll on. I'm still waiting to see if Colorado has actually made contact with Everton about him.
