This week pushes on as FC Dallas is in Seattle getting ready to take on the Sounders tomorrow night.

Yesterday we broke down the wonderful bicycle goal from Maxi Urruti against San Jose. See it again for yourself.
After last week's events, I have to say I am pretty proud at the way this city is rallying together here. FCD has some cool shirts to go with it that they'll wear at home on Saturday.
The captain is really looking good out there on the field and his hard work was paid off from Friday night.

So the Sounders think stopping our set pieces will be the key. I guess they watched the Orlando game a good bit then.
Tomorrow's game is an interesting one and while the Sounder defense has been pretty decent this year, it is their attack that has completely let them down.
First it was Nicolas Lodeiro and now it is Oscar Romero. I want to say the Lodeiro signing wouldn't actually help them until next season though but that could be someone else that I am thinking of here (its early when I write these links).
Yesterday was a big signing day up in Vancouver added two Canadian internationals in David Edgar and Marcel de Jong. (It should be noted that this report was written before both signings happened yesterday)
One big miss for Houston will be veteran defender DeMarcus Beasley, who is now out following surgery yesterday. That could be a big loss for next week's USOC game.
The clock is certainly ticking for teams like Atlanta to build their roster for next year. The big question continues to surround whether or not an Expansion Draft will or will not take place. But the most important question still surrounds whether or not Minnesota is actually 'in' next year or not.
