It is finally game day again around these parts as FC Dallas is in Mexico to take on Pachuca.
// FC Dallas //
The week of prep in Mexico has gotten FC Dallas this far but tonight’s game will be a massive test for the club and for the league.
If you need a little refresher on tonight’s opponent, we have a pretty solid scouting report of them here.
It has also been a busy few days for Fernando Clavijo in getting that important contract extension out there for Oscar Pareja.
A win in Mexico is always a big deal but I would gladly take a 1-1 draw tonight.
The pressure is certainly on this squad to do what we think they can do tonight.
The altitude there in Mexico is much higher than what we are used to here in Dallas. I just wonder if a week is enough for these guys.
The plan all along this year has been about the CCL. FC Dallas wants that trophy bad and so do all of us.
And more talk about tonight’s game. Take it all in folks.

Oh yeah, there was a lot of soccer over the weekend too. The big question out of my mind is regarding the Dynamo and Cubo Torres. Are they for real?
And even more weekend recap material here for you to digest this morning.
I always like this sort of things. Lots of talk about how Houston has turned things around and a few other things.
I don’t know if we’re going to see too many clubs come into MLS the same way that Atlanta has this year or how I expect LAFC to next year.
