Soccer is back as FC Dallas hit preseason camp for the first time yesterday.
// FC Dallas //
The big news from yesterday was that the Costa Rican loanee didn’t pass a medical test over the weekend and was likely sent back home. He definitely wasn’t at training yesterday.
A bit of a bummer for these two as they’ll be returning back to Dallas.
So we got Ruben Luna training with the club. Interesting. But a lot of the training notes should be taken with a grain of salt from what Daniel Robertson said yesterday during a Facebook Live chat.
// MLS //
MLS teams will now go February to May in this tournament. A huge change for the clubs as they’ll not longer have to deal with additional travel in the fall. That is pretty big for FCD this year if you ask me.
Starting the knockout rounds where they currently are at right now is still tough for MLS clubs but I think in the long run they’ll sort it out.
It really should be no surprise to any of you that FCD has the top academy. But the club has some work to do in my mind to keep it that way.
Most felt he was the best player in college this past season, so this is certainly a big get for DCU.
Well, there is one big name not coming to MLS this spring.
First of all, that stadium rendering looks pretty sweet. But their grand plan sounds a bit crazy to me with a link up with a Liga MX team. Hard pass on that happening.
It sounds like this one is more on life support than anything else.
