A big game is on the schedule for tomorrow as FC Dallas is set to take on Real Salt Lake.

Easily the best story you’ll hear this week as Homegrown midfielder Paxton Pomykal takes his first professional number.
If you didn’t read this story yesterday, seriously, take the time to do so today. You may also need a couple tissues when you’re done.
No shocker that Kellyn Acosta was FCD’s highest rated player in MLS’s 24 Under 24 list. Really cool that FCD also had the most players on the list with four and all of them were in the top 11.
One last item from yesterday as we were able to dig out this rumor from the web. Sounds like a new striker is on the way but likely for next season. Just something to keep tabs on in the coming months.
Lists are great debate topics around MLS and the 24 Under 24 is definitely one of them. But I think FCD fans should almost expect to see multiple players on that list each year.
Yesterday was busy for FCD related content and this also came out as well. Its a great piece on Victor Ulloa and his journey to this point in his career.
Loyd was out at the end of training today doing some light ball work. May or may not see him in 2016 but was exciting for sure https://t.co/CCbovyQ6aX— Daniel Robertson (@DRobertsonFCD) September 23, 2016

Sometimes one injury can derail a season. Though I’d argue the Caps weren’t really on a path this season to do anything big before that injury took place.
This is pretty big news if you ask me. A big time coach turning down a big Mexican club like Club America to coach in MLS. Yeah, that is a game changer for me.
It was a pretty tough week to figure out the Player of the Week in MLS. Lots of decent options and Jozy Altidore came out on top.
I’ll be a bit shocked if DCU can hold on to Steve Birnbaum this winter.
Houston may be in last place but FCD fans may oddly enough need to root for them in the final few weeks as they have four out of five games at home against teams FCD needs to see lose. But as for Barrett...they need to keep him in my opinion.
