MLSSoccer.com's countdown to First Kick highlighted FCD's Brek Shea today. Read the full entry here.

The 21-year-old Brek’s upside is still very clear and present.

His experience with the US national team in the past year has given him more purpose and discipline. His training stint with Arsenal has opened his eyes even further to the breadth of quality in the game. And the return of David Ferreira to the FCD lineup gives him a visionary teammate who can pick out his wide runs.

In short, Year 5 of the Brek Era promises to be the best yet. If the trajectory holds, could we see him score enough goals to match his jersey number: 20?

FC Dallas faces rival Houston Dynamo in the final match of the preseason for both squads. The Texas teams meet at 5 p.m. CT in the third-place match of the Disney Pro Soccer Classic, in Orlando, Fla.

This is the third straight year the teams have met in Orlando. Houston won 2-1 in 2010 in a third place game. FCD won in penalty kicks last year to win the tournament title.

The match will be streamed live on ESPN3.com. We will provide the usual in-match updates via Twitter and have post-match coverage on FCDallas.com

MLS First Kick presented by Dick's Sporting Goods is fast approaching - just a little more than one week away.

FC Dallas fans will notice some changes which will get them into FC Dallas Stadium early and have a good time.

New for all 2012 FC Dallas Games is Lamar’s Tailgate Party.

It starts 90 minutes before first kick (so 12:30 p.m. for March 11) on the North Concourse and features BBQ, street tacos and other food. Even better - different food and drink specials prior to every game.

The fun continues on the Budweiser Beer Garden with live music, pool ball (think soccer and billiards mixed together on a giant pool table), Bud promo girls, prizes, and more food and drink specials extended through the whole game.

The culmination of the tailgate party is the return of the scarfing ceremony of the Lamar Hunt statue. Each game will have a special guest doing the scarfing.

Game starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are going fast and are on sale at fcdallas.com and will be televised on NBC Sports Network.

For the New York Red Bulls game there will be vuvuzelas to the first 5,000 fans. 

Check back here for more information next week.

MLSSoccer.com chatted with FCD coach Schellas Hyndman about the status of George John. John's original loan term to West Ham United is set to end soon. Bottom line - no update, yet, on John's status with FCD for 2012.

28 February 3:34 pm

FCD takes the pitch tonight against Orlando City. The OC website has a preview of the game and asks a question I never thought I'd see - can David Ferreira hold up against their squad's back line.

FCD beat Orlando twice last year - once in the same Disney tournament and again in U.S. Open Cup.

Tonight's game gets going at 7 p.m. CT and will be streamed live on MLSSoccer.com's live Channel 2.

The first chance to check out the 2012 FC Dallas kit will be at a pop-up shop that opens this Thursday. The shop will be located at a fun Dallas location (nope, we aren't telling you where and when yet) and will have the new jersey, scarf, t-shirt and hat for sale. This will be a chance to mingle with fellow FCD fans and be the first to see and purchase the new jersey. The pop-up shop will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

FC Dallas had one training session this morning in Orlando before getting the afternoon off. It's a deserved break for the squad, who played two scrimmages over the weekend.
