We are finally in the final week of July, which seems crazy to think FC Dallas has done so well here in this hectic month. We'll dive more into that in the coming days though.

Unless you've been living under a rock these last couple days, it appears our time with Fabian Castillo is almost up as the club is close to selling him to a Turkish team for $4 million or so. Then there is this:
A sell-on clause is good though.
And then there was this tweet that likely shows his farewell dinner with the club:
Yeah, he's walking out the door folks.
Back to Saturday night for a bit, who was this Victor Ulloa and where did that rocket of a shot come from?
Once again Pareja goes to the bench and comes up big.
We'll have our look at the chalkboard here soon from this one but here is a pretty good breakdown of what went on Saturday night after that weather delay.
Considering all that had gone on in the past week or so with the club, between the win in Houston and the double dip of games in the weeks prior to that, and then the whole Castillo rumor...a draw was a massive thing for FCD to pick up on Saturday.
From the other side of things on Saturday night, our Colorado friends give us their take on the game. Boy, they're still a bit sour from the USOC loss.

Here is Matt Doyle's usual weekly recap from this past weekend that saw hat tricks from Sebastien Giovinco and Didier Drogba, and some wild results in NY, KC and more. I do like the mention about how despite Colorado's 15 game unbeaten run, they've only won twice in the last two months.
The small Euro-league raid of MLS talent continues as Olympiakos is willing to pay $3 million for Dwyer, who had two goals yesterday against Seattle.
Everyone thought Seattle was turning a corner a couple weeks ago when they blasted FCD 5-0 at home. But ever since the club hasn't won a game in any competition and their defense looks as bad as FCD's did that night. Is Sigi Schmid going to last the rest of the season?
