This week is quickly moving by as FC Dallas is almost set to take on San Jose.

We still have plenty of post-game material coming up today on Monday's game but here is a good place to start as we look at what worked on Monday and the very few things that didn't work.
Both Mauro Diaz and Walker Zimmerman had huge games on Monday and it paid off as they were named to the MLS Team of the Week.
Dan Hunt was on the media tour late last week. Here are some clips from it.
Some news came down late Monday that Fernando Clavijo said he has a target in mind as to who FCD will sign this summer up top. It sort of sounds promising at the moment. We'll see.

One of the early editions of the rookie watch list is out. Naturally Seattle forward Jordon Morris leads the way but top pick Jack Harrison from New York is surging up the charts.
While I love Tim Howard and what he has done on the national team level, I still can't imagine spending millions in this league on a keeper.
LA has been pretty consistent this year at picking up some draws and a few wins here and there. But did Monday's game spark a shift in their game that will see them move up the standings? I'd keep an eye on them if I were you all.
Nothing like a little midseason friendly huh? Seriously though, I love that they crammed this meaningless game in the middle of their schedule that sees them play LA this weekend, us next Wednesday and then their main rivals Portland next weekend.
