We really couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season than last night.
// FC Dallas //
Four new starters last night for FCD and they all looked good for the most part. Now Oscar Pareja has options for next week’s two games.
The club looks like they are well on their way to the semifinals after that performance.
We’ve seen glimpses of this kind of stuff out of Kellyn Acosta before but last night he took it to another level.
We joked that the goal cost $2 million but in all seriousness it was a nice finish.
We said it last night and we’ll continue to say it...it is the year of Kellyn.
Next Wednesday’s return leg in Panama won’t be easy but the four goal lead is a nice starting point.
No Mauro Diaz? No problem really with that lineup.

The only name on this list that I’m in a bit of a disagreement with is actually Jozy Altidore. I never expect him to remain healthy enough for a full season to be in the running for these sorts of things (and in all honesty, I want him hot in 2018 for the World Cup).
I know it is another white kit but I really love the colors and history behind this one.
I like everything about these two kits. That yellow kit is rather cool with the black mixed in the way that it is.
Another big club is coming to play in the All-Star Game against MLS this year.
I’m not sure this will be the 2017 version of the Rapids but SKC will likely frustrate a lot of teams this year.
