Chivas USA was a thought to be genius and a sure fire hit when brought in, but looks doomed to failure. The MLS didn't do their homework. LA has as many Club America fans (Chivas' arch rival. America are the Yankees and Chivas are the Red Sox) as "Goats" fans who would NEVER support a product that has the Chivas logo. Same thing holds true w/the fans of all the other Mexican Primera fans of other teams that root against Chivas. Conversely, Chivas USA was going to be a team where young upcoming players of the parent club and aging stars that no longer are in the starting XI would come and play, but that hasn't happened. Just can't see this franchise making it in the long run.

Shea will be back after U23 duty. George John is expected to be back full time with Ihemelu to straiten up our back line. Castillo will be back after in injury but it will be interesting to see what they do with him because Brian Leyva has been playing well and they need to bring the youngster along with more starting time. Also interested to see how 19yr old Jonathon Top does this Sunday against ManU's reserve team in this years Dallas Cup SuperGroup (http://www.fcdallas.com/blog/post/2012/ ... as-stadium).
Hhhhh...still no David Ferreira. Now it appears they are doing more x-rays and MRI's because if this achilles issue. I love Villars grit but we NEED our MVP.
We need to get on track quickly and it starts in DCHeather-town. Dallas til I die.

FC Dallas U-18s: 0
The U-18s' eight-game unbeaten run came to an end on Sunday, when they dropped a 1-0 result to Internationals. The lone goal of the match was scored by Grant Baltes in the 54th minute to give the visitors the win. It marked just the second time this season the U-18s have lost, each time by just one goal.
FC Dallas U-16s: 0
Like the U-18s, the U-16s went on to drop a shutout result the next day, losing to Internationals 2-0. The visitors benefited from a brace scored by forward George Poppas, his first coming in the 17th minute and his second in the 80th.
