This wild month of soccer rolls on as FC Dallas is getting ready to take on their Texas Derby rivals tomorrow night.

There was still plenty to take in from the win over Chicago as the club looked good in moments and pretty rough in others.
A few national titles, a team competing again for a Supporters' Shield, a lot is looking good right now at the moment for FC Dallas.
I still wouldn't be shocked to see one or two of the U-18s signed here in the next month or so.
Fabian Castillo was an easy call on the MLS Team of the Week with his two assists. Mauro Diaz also had a strong night Saturday that helped us forget about Wednesday's loss in Seattle.
Yes, Castillo had a very slow and sluggish start to the season but two goals and two assists in the last five games is a good way to get people's attention again.

Sure, you could make the case for a lot of guys here this season. I still stand behind the logic that you don't want your players in this game, unless you are hosting it.
Last year's Shield winners have had an up and down year so far in 2016. A lot of it can be focused in on that brutal start to the season but as the summer months of hit, the wins are starting to go away once more.
While Orlando fans are excited by this move, I still think Jason Kreis would have been a better fit somewhere else in MLS.
I'm not going to lie, I kind of forgot Javier Morales was still playing for RSL.
RSL also recently revoked a local reporters media pass in a move that certainly makes them look a bit petty.
Some folks in Portland weren't too high on this keeper but to see them get a little money in a transfer isn't a bad bit of business if you ask me.
