FC Dallas celebrate their U.S. Open Cup title

FC Dallas roster looks strong going into 2017

My apologies for the Cowboys losing, but FC Dallas' 2017 campaign begins in just under two months. The team faces Árabe Unido in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in 37 days and starts its MLS season in 46 days. Oh, and it might just be the best roster the team has had in recent years.

FC Dallas celebrate their U.S. Open Cup title

U.S. Open Cup win opens many doors for FC Dallas

It was a moment that has been seen in 19 years — FC Dallas lifting a major trophy after a win in a cup final. The celebration the ensued was incredible, but what's even better is what this could do for this team, both on and off the field, as it moves towards a potential American treble.

FC Dallas has defied all odds to win Western Conference

They weren't supposed to be here. In a league where the big name stars dominate the headlines, where Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Toronto garner all of the attention, a team with no stars and no massive payroll isn't supposed to take possession of the No. 1 seed in the toughest conference, let alone come this close to grabbing the Supporters' Shield — the award for finishing first in the league in the regular season. But here FC Dallas sits. With one match left to go in the season, the Hoops have clinched the top seed in the Western Conference, a feat that seemed impossible at the start of the season.

U.S. men’s team needs to part ways with Jurgen Klinsmann

There is plenty of blame to go around for this disaster of a team that has struggled for the past couple of months. But no one person deserves more of the blame than Jurgen Klinsmann. Yes, the man that was supposed to "save" U.S. soccer has now run it's course ... right off of a cliff. And now it's time for Sunil Gulati, president of the U.S. Soccer Federation, to cut ties with Klinsmann and move on before this becomes even more of a disaster for the Americans.

Playoff loss disappointing, but future bright for FC Dallas

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed that FC Dallas bowed out of the postseason in the Western Conference Semifinals after losing thanks to the away goal rule to Seattle on Monday. I'd also be lying if I said I wasn't excited for the 2015 season, even if it is well off into the future.

FC Dallas one win away from U.S. Open Cup Final

It's been well documented that FC Dallas went into a near-death spiral around the end of spring, going on an eight-match losing streak, but then coming back over the summer to go on a matching eight-game unbeaten streak in MLS action and an 11-match unbeaten streak in all competitions. At the heart of the turn around has been the Hoops' play in the U.S. Open Cup. In their three matches so far in the tournament, they've outscored their opponents 10-4, with their latest victory being a 5-2 win at the Carolina Railhawks back in early July. And with their semifinal match tonight against the Philadelphia Union, FC Dallas will be head back to the final for the first time since 2007.

FC Dallas coming into tough Texas Derby match on a roll

Don't look now, but there's a team in the Dallas-Fort Worth that's at the top of its league and looking dangerous. No, it's not based in Arlington, instead it's FC Dallas up in Frisco. It's still very early on in the season but FC Dallas currently leads the league overall with 10 points in four games, compiling a 3-0-1 record thus far. And for a team that has now missed the postseason two years-in-a-row, that's a very good start to the year.

FC Dallas off to a great start, but wary of how they finish

If there's one team that really epitomizes the struggles of sports teams in the DFW area, it has to be FC Dallas. The MLS side of North Texas has seen its fair share of ups and downs over the past five or six seasons with, like every other team in this area, more downs than ups. In 2010, the "Hoops", as they are/were known for their jersey design up until this season, lost to Colorado in the MLS cup thanks to an own goal in extra time. An own goal. That my friends, is as low as it gets.
