The ball has dropped on a new year and we’ve now flipped the page on the calendar into 2017.
// FC Dallas //
We posted this one right before the New Year’s weekend as we previewed a couple of things that are in store for the club this season.
One of our writers took down some notes that he learned from the past year and shared them in this space.

The Winter Classic is going back to Toronto this year as BMO Field gets to host the big game. Hockey looks to fit in well there.
I love how the calendar goes from top this or that of the year to bold predictions for the new year. Also, I don’t see how this Atlanta defense will out perform that attack. I love me some Zach Loyd like the rest of us here but I don’t think he’ll last a full season with his injury history.
They had a pretty disappointing 2016 after the way things went in 2015 when they won it all. So just getting back into the playoffs would be a good first step for that group.
Erick Torres has been massively disappointing since the folding of Chivas USA (never thought those words would be typed together like that). Houston has made a slew of moves this offseason that seem to have him pushed out of the picture again.
I’m not sure if this is the one that their owner was hyping up or not but a World Cup defender from Africa in MLS sounds like a good move to me.
