FC Dallas remains off until later this week as they rest up for the Pachuca match.

While the club is 2-0-1 on the season, there are areas like service from the wings, that the club needs some big improvement on.
Everyone seemed really pleased with how the new video boards looked on Saturday.
Another cool thing that came out on Saturday was the two tifo displays in the crowd. As much as I enjoyed the DBG banner (and yes I know it didn’t hang right), El Matador’s made me laugh. Well done boys and girls.
Carter Baum over at FCD was taking some questions yesterday and he gave us a nice injury update on guys like Mauro Diaz, Anibal Chala, Victor Ulloa and Ryan Hollingshead.
I can also tell you this as well on the injury front:
Update on Morales: Club says that he was held out this weekend as a precautionary thing (ie: Diaz in ’16). He’s fully fit though. #FCDallas— Drew Epperley (@wvhooligan) March 20, 2017
I know some of you enjoy the expected goals stuff, so right now Maxi is leading that charge.

This rumor has finally been put to rest as it came true in the end for the Fire. They’re going to get yet another experienced center midfielder. Which is great and all but after seeing Dax McCarty and Juninho run together, I am curious how this addition will work.
Now Jeff Cassar joins a list of the quickest coaches fired in a season in MLS history. Actually, take that back, he now has become the quickest coach fired in a season. Ouch.
Mike Petke seems like a good fit but I also wouldn’t be shocked to see Sigi Schmid get a look there as well.
But you know there was always a way to defeat the Death Star.
And here is your monthly reminder as to why FCD still needs their own USL side.
And if you need another weekly recap, our pal Steve Davis does a pretty good one too.
