The weekend is slowly coming into focus here as FC Dallas is getting ready to take on Seattle on Sunday.

We may be biased but we think there really isn’t much debate over the whole Defender of the Year race. It should come to one of two FCD defenders.
Sometimes you may be worried about a week off at this time of the year but in all respect, getting a bye week right now was needed to help players recharge before this next week.
No guys, thank you.

Every wondered how the Shield ever came about? It started as an idea from a good old email list back in the mid-90s. Ah, those were the days.
Would Michael Bradley bolt Toronto at the end of the season? It kind of wouldn’t shock me to see him go.
A little preview of tonight’s Seattle-Houston game. In a small way, root for Seattle to just hammer Houston and get exhausted doing so.

For a game that needed to have a little something on it, the US just never looked like a team that would put away the Kiwis.
One thing not mentioned was the fact that Kellyn Acosta once again started at fullback. Ugh. Oh well, but that Julian Green goal was nice.
One thing is pretty clear, Sacha Kljestan is having a monster 2016. Both club and now country.
And more talk about how good Kljestan and Green were in last night’s draw.
