Last day of February is here as the regular season starts this weekend.

FC Dallas is down in Panama getting ready for their next CCL game.

Team focused on new season and opportunities |

We all seemed to be pretty excited about the new season and possibilities but I think we all know deep down that this could be the start of something really special.

I think we should expect to see a fair amount of this kind of news for Bryan Reynolds this season.

LA teams chasing Chicharito in transfer rumor | Angels on Parade

It really isn’t a shock to me to see that Chicharito would end up in LA with one of the two sides there. I think if he lands with the Galaxy, we’re all in for a world of trouble. If he ends up with an expansion team, I worry less about it.

Geez, 12 years. I guess it really did feel like a forever.

RSL re-signs Plata as a DP | RSL Soapbox

While I like what Joao Plata brings to the field, I don’t like using a DP tag on him.

MLS is moving towards becoming a top league | ESPNFC

That goal of becoming a top league in the world is actually starting to look like a real thing in my book for MLS. Given how many younger stars are coming into the league, MLS is starting to become the destination for better players.

Martino leaving his mark on Atlanta |

Based off that article above about average age, he certainly is. Atlanta is the third youngest team in the league, which is kind of scary to me.
