A bit of a second call on this piece from yesterday afternoon. The win over Portland was a good one for FCD but there are still things to point out and move forward on.
And another one from yesterday (we had a ton of great stuff if you haven't read it all yet).
It really wasn't a surprise to see Maximiliano Urruti have his best game on Wednesday against his old club. He had a lot to prove to the Timbers and in the end, he proved a ton to us FCD folks.

Don Garber visited Sacramento yesterday, saying all the usual stuff that he normally would about an expansion hopeful. From the sounds of everything, the next round of expansion will begin in 2020. Sacramento seem like the obvious candidate to join then, but the next question will be whether or not it is St. Louis or San Antinio joining them.
If you don't read anything from this piece, at least check out the stadium renderings for this place. Holy moly, that stadium looks like it will be awesome.
ICS is our Sacramento affiliate here at SBN. Naturally they were on hand yesterday for the whole show there with Garber.
Hopes is a very interesting word to use in that title but it is what Donny Soccer was spinning yesterday afternoon in the California capital.
Yep, put it on the pile of cities wanting in.
After a month or so out, Jermaine Jones is ready to go in Colorado while Didier Drogba is back for Montreal this weekend.
I'm sure Ben isn't the only person the refs are confusing these days.
Woulda, coulda, shoulda.
I would hope it is better than a three month college season.
