In 2009, FC Dallas' hot second half wasn't enough to offset a poor 3-7-5 start to the season.

The resurgence of Jeff Cunningham and the play of David Ferreira helped engineer the turnaround and this season Dallas will look to get started on the right foot.

In the second annual installment of an interview with three FC Dallas players, I (with the help of my two kids) came up with 20 questions not really related to soccer to get to know them a little better. It seems to be fun for them and is certainly a blast for me. This version was done back on July 3 but I decided to wait until the off season started for FCD to keep the north Texas boys in the news a little longer.

According to Soccer by Ives FC Dallas has been shopping ex-Red Bull left sided midfielder Dave van den Bergh around the league, hoping that someone will pick up his salary of nearly $250,000. Getting rid of van den Bergh has to rank as one of the most colossal mistakes of the Osorio/Agoos era.

Landon Donovan was named the 2009 MLS Most Valuable Player on Thursday, and while it is tough to argue against awarding the U.S. national team star for his performance this season, the MVP results still raised a glaring question.

What about Shalrie Joseph?

It isn't a question so much about choosing between Joseph and Donovan, which is a subjective debate that has supporters on both sides.

I'm tracking league goals, competitive goals, both home and away. I'm also tracking US Open Cup, playoff, and international goals, but those 3 won't be listed here simply due to lack of many landmark goal numbers.

Two possible readings of the Philadelphia Union's expansion draft picks:

While players met on collective bargaining, many of them were left available for Philadelphia to consider for Wednesday's expansion draft.

One sidelight: MLS declared 25 players "graduated" from Generation adidas, which means they're no longer roster-protected. That doesn't leave many current players in the program.

On twitter today there was quite a bit on talk about Brek Shea and coach Hyndman. One topic was the same criticism of Schellas Hyndman we've heard before, that he runs off players who speak up, rebel, or aren't on board with his coaching. I, for one, tend to find that an overblown characterization.

If there's one thing I hate, it's people who say "I told you so" on entirely predictable stuff, especially when the prediction cost nothing. All that tells you is that the writer in question gets so little right as a matter of course that the few things he or she does get right become a very large deal.
