Chalkboard: Newcomers shine in draw | Big D Soccer

Both Jacori Hayes and Paxton Pomykal looked good in their debuts for FC Dallas on Saturday, giving us some serious hope for things to come.

Hot Takes: FCD shares points with SKC | Big D Soccer

Naturally the big thing we’re all talking about from Saturday was Pomykal. The kid looked like the real deal out there.

FCD’s personality and belief drives road point |

While most around the league may ignore this result, there is certainly plenty to be proud of when you consider everything.

Lone star but no goals | The Blue Testament

A little more from the game from the KC side of things.

Liga MX postpones weekend play due to refs | Big D Soccer

This one came down on Friday, which I have to believe was a driving force in the lineup juggle from Oscar Pareja. Pachuca will come in pretty rested on Wednesday.

Doyle: All wrong from the Loons and more in week 2 |

Minnesota has now given up 11 goals in two games. By the way, FCD plays them next month at home following the trip to Pachuca. I’m pretty confident a U-18 team from FCD could do well against Minnesota right now.

NYCFC keeping the romance alive in the Bronx |

The more I look at NYCFC, the more I think they actually do have what it takes to contend in the East this season. Maxi Morales is the real deal too.

We had snow in Minnesota | SB Nation

Not only was it the coldest game in league history, it was easily one of the snowiest. I do enjoy the fact that we’ll likely get one of these games every season now.

Houston wins second in a row, Minnesota gives up six more | ESPNFC

Something is definitely going on in Houston these days as they picked up another win over the weekend. Maybe they’re drinking the water again (which comes down from us!). San Jose is also looking good early on this year too.

Not only did this dive get Jelle Van Damme sent off on the afternoon in LA’s 1-0 loss to Portland, it caused David Guzman to injure himself.
