Weekly Training Schedule: Sept. 13-17

FC Dallas prepares for NYRB on Thursday, Sept. 16

FC Dallas (10-2-11, 41 pts)
is unbeaten in 14 straight after a weekend draw at San Jose, pushing their
all-time league best road unbeaten streak to 11 games. This week, FC Dallas returns
home to Pizza Hut Park for one of its toughest tests in the form of a
star-laden New York Red Bulls squad.

The Red Bulls have plenty of
firepower in Thierry Henry, Rafa Marquez and Juan Pablo Angel, and they are one
of only two MLS teams with wins over the Dallas side this season. New York
toppled Dallas 2-1 back on April 17 for the first FC Dallas loss of the season.

The two teams meet at 8 p.m.
on Thursday, Sept. 16 at Pizza Hut Park with Dallas looking to extend its
streak to 15 and New York hoping for a season sweep. Thursday is also WinStar
World Casino night at the park, with the first 5,000 fans in attendance each
receiving a free soccer ball.

The team will train Monday
through Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., and will have a recovery session
on Friday morning.

The game airs live on Fox Sports Southwest Plus and ESPN Deportes 1540 AM.

Notable this week:
FC Dallas (10-2-11, 41 pts)
stretched its unbeaten streak to 14 games with the draw on Saturday. The Dallas
side has the longest unbeaten streak in MLS this season (Los Angeles previously
had a 12-game unbeaten streak end with a 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake on June 9).
 

The all-time MLS mark for an
unbeaten streak is 19 games set by the Columbus Crew from July 3, 2004 to April
2, 2005. Dallas’ 14-game streak ties the MLS mark set within a single season
(D.C. United and San Jose each had 14-game unbeaten streaks in 2006 and 2005,
respectively). The draw also extended Dallas’ MLS-best road unbeaten streak to
11 games.

Goalkeeper Kevin Hartman recorded his
ninth shutout of the season on Saturday. He is MLS’s all-time leader in
shutouts (92) and currently leads MLS with a 0.58 goals against average. The
Dallas side is on pace to allow the fewest goals in club history with only 17
goals against through 23 games. The current club record of 35 goals against in
32 games was set during the 1999 MLS season.

FC Dallas has not allowed a
goal in 370 minutes. The last goal was scored by D.C. United in the 80th minute
of a 3-1 FC Dallas victory in Washington. The all-time MLS record for GAA in a
season is 0.82 set by Pat Onstad in the 2007 campaign.
