Things are moving nicely here as FC Dallas is coming off a six point week.

We wrote out who our top give potential HGPs are in the FCD system. It is still crazy to think that there are probably five to ten other guys that aren't on this list that we probably could have added. Those U-18 and U-16 teams are crazy stacked.
A well deserved nod for Walker Zimmerman as he really stepped up his play last week in the wins over Portland and Seattle.

At first it looked like a sad hamstring injury after the missed penalty. Now it is indeed a real one as Jozy Altidore continues to have hamstring issues at the worst possible time (during years of big tournaments).
While I would have liked to have seen him get a chance here in Dallas, Portland does have a lot of defensive issues to correct at the moment. So in that sense, Portland needed him more than we did.
That is some seriously cheap food prices for a professional sports venue. I know of college and high school venues that have food similar to that at higher cost.
Looking back a few days after the trade last week, I still have to shrug my shoulders and say "MLS is gonna MLS".
My gut tells me a deal gets worked out for him to come to MLS this summer. I don't know why I feel that way but I do.
Ah, the annual talk of how MLS has to improve on the CCL stage.
This is starting to be a good growing trend for teams like this. But at the same time it also kind of hurts thinking a lower division team that is new can attract about 7k-8k more fans a game than some MLS clubs can (including us).
