The busy month of July rolls on for FC Dallas with two important games this week.
// FC Dallas //
Is he another Michael Barrios type signing? Or is he Pipico 2.0? Time will tell but it is only a loan deal so the clock is certainly ticking.
Here is another look at the San Jose game as we broke down the good and the few bad parts from the win.
There was a lot of defending in this game for FC Dallas but in the end, another shutout was added to the tally and the shutout streak was extended.
We all moaned and complained a bunch about how long Maxi Urruti's scoreless streak in league play was going to here but we certainly won't complain about that goal, at all.

Matt Doyle checks in with his usual weekend thoughts and while there isn't a ton of FCD discussion in this one, we do get some thoughts on our next opponent in Seattle.
Another weekend recap of sorts here to digest this morning. NYCFC's run ended last night to SKC. Colorado got a late goal to draw on the road in Vancouver (we really could have used that loss...oh well).
A lot of people wonder and speculate when and where Jason Kreis is going to land next as a head coach. And then there are those that wonder what he'd still be doing with the NYCFC bunch if he got another season there.
The player wants to take it but DCU is playing hardball here.
I'm not going to lie, this week kind of scares me for FCD. They play two teams at the bottom of the league. In the past we've seen them play down to team's level in situations like this.
I've been saying this for a few years now. Allowing more quality young players into the league that aren't going the HGP route is what needs to happen. I also like the idea of ditching the Generation adidas tags too. That system has seen better days.
