FC Dallas has one more day of training before they head off to New England for Saturday's game.

Zach Loyd has been a figure with the club for what feels like ages now. Six seasons ago he was a rookie with the club and now he is putting himself all through the club's record books.
Speed has always been FCD's thing but the Revs have a good deal of their own now. Saturday should be a fairly open and wild game.

It is still crazy to me that NYCFC is leading the Eastern Conference right now. Last night's draw in Toronto proved that they are starting to look the part in a weaker conference.
I still recall the days of a younger, slightly crazy EJ here in Dallas with the team. This is a very interesting interview though with him. He was always pretty honest when you'd talk to him and he didn't hold back here.
Ah the San Jose-LA rivalry. It is always one of the more interesting ones in the league since it goes so far back. I am curious to see how it will evolve in the coming years when you see LAFC and Sacramento in the league.
I feel a little bad for the Chicago fans these days as they are left to wondering if their team really is getting better or not. Last night's result against NY was another example of how they have not progressed enough so far this season.
I don't believe they talked about wanting a MLS side down the road but I would keep an eye on this market. My gut tells me this is one of those pins in the map that the league front office wouldn't mind having some day.
Our USL affiliates had to go to penalties last night to advance in the USOC. Coy Craft and Colin Bonner did not play, so they are still eligible to play with FCD.
