Pomykal takes over the #19 jersey | Big D Soccer

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.

24 Under 24: Acosta lands at #4 | Big D Soccer

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.

Altidore edges Rowe for POW |

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.

German club interested in Birnbaum | Black and Red United

I’ll be a bit shocked if DCU can hold on to Steve Birnbaum this winter.

Has Barrett done enough to earn remove the interim tag in Houston? | FourFourTwo

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.
