It didn't take long for FC Dallas to have another game here in the season as tonight they visit Seattle.

Once again the MLS is putting on a Homegrown game during the All-Star festivities and FCD will be sending three of their own to it. I'm ready for the league to open this up more for academy players to be apart of too.
We all know that Fabian Castillo has the speed to burn anyone in MLS but I think these last few weeks have shown his maturity starting to form too.
A lot of rumors are going around right now about FCD's McKinnie and some interest in Germany. To me it sounds like agent speak but I have a gut feeling FCD will still be able to retain him.
As much as I love and agree with this thought, I really don't want to see it happen until after this year. Or better, 2018. Let us get some silverware with Oscar first please.

Here is a little more on tonight's opponent. Last week against LA, the Galaxy tried to key in on Clint Dempsey and while they did get the job done in terms on beating Seattle, the Sounders nearly made them pay for it, several times.
I can't argue with any of these three but boy are they missing one big one here in Marco Ferruzzi. I know FCD would like to retain him for a future USL team or something along those lines but he could be a great MLS coach one day as well.
The race in the other conference is still anyone's best guess at the moment. Sure NYCFC is doing a decent job but no one else is stepping up. So why not Montreal?
Sometimes you have to put a star on the bench to send a message. I don't think he was sending a message to Matt Besler in this but definitely one to the rest of the team in a way.
Yesterday saw Montreal send CCL hero Cameron Porter to KC for left back Amadou Dia.
