The week slowly rolls on here as FC Dallas enjoys a bit of change to their schedule with having only one game this week.

For the third straight summer, one of our own interned with FC Dallas. And just like the two previous summers, that said intern came back with a new perspective on the club that we call our own.
This was the one bit of news that came down yesterday regarding FCD. Now the club has two open roster spots with only a few weeks to go before that roster freeze.
It is nothing towards Atiba Harris but I really want to see Aubrey David get more minutes at right back.
One thought I had in replacing Fabian Castillo on the left wing was to just start using Michael Barrios on that side. Hopefully that will start to work out more.
The MLS academies have a long season that stretches from fall to spring and into the summer. Now that school is starting back up again, a new season is on the horizon.

A word of warning for FCD next week, their CCL trips on the road will not be easy.
Again, I’ll say it, the road in the CCL won’t be easy.
Yeah, I don’t have a lot of disagreement with this one just based on stats alone. Though I keep joking with Steve Davis on this that Frank Lampard is going to sneak in that Golden Boot race with his teammate David Villa.
We’ll certainly know all the details of what is to come in Minnesota this week. But the big question will be really down to what the name will end up as.
I meant to do this one yesterday but figure I will end today’s links with it. Our old Chivas USA blog (The Goat Parade) has turned into Angels on Parade. They’re still covering LAFC like they always have been. So update those bookmarks (if you still use that sort of thing).
