Things are moving along nicely here as FC Dallas continues to prep for New England this weekend.

Matt Hedges is almost back from his knee injury that has kept him out the better part of the last two months. If he is ready for this weekend, do you risk him on turf? I sure as heck don't but that hasn't stopped Oscar Pareja from bringing a guy back on turf (Mauro Diaz was brought back in Vancouver).
Two straight wins last week and now the club is back on the road for two more games to finish the month of May. It will all come down to how well the defense responds in these games and if the attack can continue to show signs of life.
Add a couple more wins to the final tally for FCD's stellar academy teams.

It is never too early to get on board for this weekend and here is a good place to start as we're seeing a New England team that is starting to play better. Oh and they have some Kei Kamara guy now too.
He won the league's vote and then our vote. You can see how I voted in this week's race here as well.
Kind of a strange turn of events to see that Gio dos Santos won't be on Mexico's Copa America roster this summer. I'm sure the league front office is a bit unhappy with him declining but if the guy wants to remain fit for his club, I can't blame him too much.
It seems like a long time coming for Bill Hamid here this season to get on the field but he is inching closer and closer for DCU.
I'm honestly not surprised at what rivalry he likes the most right now.
The old rivalries in MLS are great but we all know that the more the league expands, the better the more localized rivalries will get.
