We're approaching the weekend here as FC Dallas is getting ready to head out to Vancouver for the start of a three-game road trip.
// FC Dallas //
Some big records could fall for FCD as they look to not only extend their road winning streak to three for the first time in ages but also continue on the best starts in club history. I think if you get a win and two draws out of the next three, it would be a success.
On the academy side of things, the club continues to do well this spring with more wins.
// MLS //
MLS has been doing a lot of posts lately about analytics and numbers in the league. This one looks at the Revs and their approach to using stats and numbers to improve their game on and off the field.
Don't look now but one of our preseason picks to be one of the bottom feeders in MLS is pretty darn close to FCD in the standings near the top.
MLS continued their weird and wild ways of doing things this week by issuing Ben Olsen a suspension. Alright then.
I'm not sure if I agree 100% that the CBA is the main issue with success in the CCL. I still believe that comes down to the schedule and timing of the tournament for MLS.
It has been a rough few weeks for the league's officials on the field and off. They definitely need some assistance in the form of technology.
I've always kept a little extra tab on Drew Moor since he left Dallas a few years back and now that he is in Toronto I feel like rooting even harder for him to succeed when he isn't playing Dallas.
Sacramento, St. Louis, San Antonio and Detroit. There are your next four. I'm calling it right now. But also don't be shocked if say Charlotte, Cincinnati, San Diego and Phoenix eventually come into the league as well before it is all said and done. Yes, that would be 32. A couple hundred million talks people, and MLS owners aren't going to shy away from that kind of money.
