New, comment

Castillo is gone and FC Dallas picked up another win without him.

FC Dallas remained unbeaten at home in 2016 thanks to a late Maynor Figueroa goal last night.

FCD picks up a 2-1 win over Real Esteli | Big D Soccer

It wasn’t pretty at times, and it very much looked like a game in CONCACAF but FCD managed to pull away with the win.

Figueroa plays hero for FCD |

If I were to tell you going into the game last night that Figueroa was going to get a game-winner late in the match, you probably would have laugh hysterically at me.

Castillo loaned to Turkey | Big D Soccer

Yesterday before the CCL match it was made official. We have plenty more planned on this move to discuss.

Castillo left without permission |

Fernando Clavijo discussed the move with the press last night and the feeling you got in listening to him was that he wasn’t a happy camper about any of this. But mostly he was disappointed in the way Fabian Castillo handled all of this.

Running through each clubs’ summer transfers |

Matt Doyle went through each clubs’ summer moves here. He saved FCD for last and I love the final comment he made because it is probably something that could actually come true. Thing is he isn’t wrong at all about the lack of a big time scorer here.

On the flip side is this one. Definitely there is a sense of being in the loser column after seeing Castillo exit the way that he did. I really do hope this can turn out to becoming addition by subtraction.

Stadium debut was more than just soccer | Star Tribune

While we continue to wait on Minnesota United’s news of when and where they’ll play next year, the new NFL venue that opened up with a soccer game this past week showed how much people like the game up there.

Which MLS stars are ready for Europe |

There are some interesting names on this list but no one may be bigger to us all here than Kellyn Acosta.

Revs trade Davies to Philly | The Bent Musket

Dang, the Union got much better this week with the deals that they made but this one was definitely interesting. Apparently all sides were good with the move and it wasn’t just New England dumping Charlie Davies.

We all knew this would happen when the Rapids started doing well this season and they were waiting on Tim Howard to arrive.
