A week without a midweek game seems so odd these days huh?
// FC Dallas //
It wasn’t from outright winning a game recently but we will take it either way. Now to secure a top seed, and then the Shield.
There was a lot to digest from the 2-2 draw on Saturday evening at Yankee Stadium. I really do hope that Tesho Akindele miss at the end of the game doesn’t come back to haunt us here.
It is always great to beat Houston on any level.
// MLS //
The league’s website began revealing who was on their annual list of players under 24 this week. So far no FCD guys, which makes me believe we’ll see at least two of them in the top 15, if not three of them.
It is funny talking to folks in Seattle who know of fans up there that think Jordan Morris isn’t as great as we’re all making him out to be. Hey whatever, I think the rookie is doing pretty darn well.
I guess it was a little premature yesterday to consider the Reds in the playoffs.
We’ve wondered all long who the first manager for Atlanta would be next season and it appears they are going South American with Martino. Not a bad chose but foreign coaches almost always struggle in their first MLS seasons if they aren’t familiar with this league.
Sigi Schmid is on everyone’s shortlist for manager right now it seems, well especially the new clubs out there. My gut tells me he still waits it out for LAFC in 2018.
The injury didn’t look good on Saturday and now we know that NYC may be without one of their big three for almost the rest of the regular season.
// USMNT //
Dos a Cero part V huh? Yeah, I can’t wait. I love that US Soccer uses Columbus for this game each year now.
