It is game day again around these parts as FC Dallas hosts Pachuca.

Need to get in the know about Champions League opponent tonight? We have a pretty solid scouting report of the Mexican side for you.
A lot of people seem high on FCD’s chances in this series but it all starts with a good result tonight.
Once again I will toot the horn of ‘you win your home games, you draw on the road’.
This team is certainly built to handle this tournament. And so far this season we’ve seen the depth rise and handle the league slate too.
Some times younger is better I suppose. I would expect a fun game tonight either way though.
I’ll continue to state that I don’t really care for the use of an international roster slot on a keeper. But trust the process right?

A 2-0 hole isn’t all that bad really for Vancouver but they have to figure out a way to beat Tigres at home and also not give up anything in the process.
Some very interesting information continues to come out regarding MLS rosters and budgets this year.
And I thought the NFL was the No Fun League. Yeesh.
I won’t lie, it is kind of cool to see a MLS discussion at a thing like SXSW. That is one way to grow the league.
Colorado just lost one of their bigs in the back with Swedish defender Axel Sjoberg going on the shelf for at least six weeks.
I do like seeing MLS go to some untraditional means to broadcast their games these days like Facebook. While the experience on those platforms have a ways to go, it is still a smart venture in my book.
