The week rolls into Tuesday here as we begin to see FC Dallas prepare for Portland’s visit to Frisco this weekend.

This one came in yesterday evening as we got to see a real look at what Mauro Diaz is up to with his recovery. He’s getting closer with each passing day but let’s be patient here too with him.
Oscar Pareja was pretty giddy following the win over Sporting KC last weekend. I’m sure if he can get his team to execute the game plan again against Portland this weekend, he’ll be even more giddy.
One last look at SKC for today as our guy in the East Stand talks about last weekend’s game.
Here are some good comments on how Pareja uses fullbacks in his system. Also some interesting takes on why the stadium grass is watered during halftime.
The stats may not be eye-popping from the SKC game in terms of shots, goals, assists, etc., but what they were able to do against a really good SKC attack was worth watching again.

Sure, the Lions are leading the points right now in MLS, but they’ve also played four games at home to start out. Again I will say, when they put up this kind of stuff on the road in places like Toronto, Seattle, Dallas, or even LA, then I’ll be more impressed.
This really shouldn’t be a shocker to anyone given his MLS coaching history in KC and DC. The guy is just not a MLS-level manager.
I thought it was only a matter of time before their attack woke up and began doing big things.
I always enjoy a good tifo at a MLS game. Here is a little back story on how they come together.
That goal over the weekend was something else. Nagbe is heating up just in time to come to Dallas and cool off? Let’s hope.
This comes on the heels of the Timmy Howard suspension.
Chicharito could end up being the highest paid player in MLS history.
Also, the dream of a Didier Drogba player/coach/owner situation flew out the window with this move as well.
