It seems like just yesterday we were talking about FC Dallas playing a game in LA.
// FC Dallas //
Wednesday night gave us a lot of things to work from between the different formations, to the subs used.
So many season previews out there these days but this one from the local paper is pretty darn good.
Two meetings in LA for FCD last year went just about as good as they have ever gone for the club. Basically, the fear of playing in LA is no more for this bunch.
To be fair, a draw is also a good way to keep the momentum moving forward in a positive direction.
// MLS //
Entering the 22nd season, MLS is no longer that awkward teenager or that annoying 20 year old that just wants to party. Crazy to think how far this league has come in the last ten years.
There is no shocker here that FCD is in the top tier going into the season. I have to also say I am with Matt Doyle on the whole Mauro Diaz thing too.
I don’t know what it is about the Canadian teams advancing in this tournament at the rate that they do but good for Vancouver. I’m also curious what this result actually says about New York too.
Jack Mac won’t be back in Portland this season. Then again he never really broke out there with the Timbers either. My gut tells me he will end up with a NASL team.
Throw in Mix Diskerud being bought out by NYCFC yesterday as well. Now you have two guys that should be on MLS rosters that aren’t on opening day.
Never mind the usual predictions in this post, go to the bottom and take a look at the things the GMs want to ditch or change in MLS.
