FC Dallas midfielder Andrew Jacobson took some time Thursday afternoon to answer questions from fans on the FC Dallas Facebook page. Here are the questions and his answers.
Q: What happened with Chavez?
A: Ya it was sad to see him get traded. He is a very good player and its an unfortunate part of the business.
Q: What do are your own aspirations for the new MLS season?
A: My personal aspirations are to have a better year than last year. I just want to continue growing as a player and I feel that if each year is better, I am on the right track.
Q: If you could play on any team in the world, what would it be and what team would you most want to play against?
A: I would love to play in El Clasico for Barca!
Q: Do you think the team is ready for another MLS cup run?
A: I think this year is going to be a very good year. We have a very good core group of players and are starting to bring in guys that can become difference makers.
Q: With the new additions as well as the departures, how competitive do you see FCD being this year? Also can we please beat Houston?
A: We always mark that Houston game on the calendar.
Q: How do you feel the MLS has grown over the last couple of years and how big do you believe the MLS can get?
A: I really feel like the level has gotten quite a bit better each year. Actually more than I could have ever imagined. I think it will be sooner than people think when we can compete with the big leagues.
Q: Hey AJ.. How's the pre season going? Second year and all...do you feel more comfortable? Any cramps yet? :)
A: Ya I definitely feel more comfortable going into my second year. Haha. Ya the road back to fitness is a painful one.
Q: What do you enjoy most about living in Dallas?
A: I love the people in Dallas. I have lived in quite a few places throughout my life and I can definitely say the nicest people live here
Q: Are you as pumped as I am for this season? :) Go FC Dallas!
A: I think I’m more pumped!!!
Q: Have you been kicked by Bobby Warshaw in last two days?
A: He’s tried but he was only able to kick the air as the ball went through his legs.
Q: Good year last year bro. Who is your toughest match-up that you have played against? (player) GOOD LUCK THIS YEAR...LET'S GET THAT CHAMPIONSHIP!
A: Thanks man! I would say Shalrie Joseph (New England Revolution) is the hardest player to deal with. He really has all the tools.
Q: We know your a great assist man but Have you been given the green light on taking some long range shots? We know you got a cannon!
A: Haha ya man, I definitely have the all clear this year to take some long distance shots.
Q: I am about to move to Pearland outside of Houston from Scotland. I am divided to support either FC Dallas or Dynamo, I did personally know Simo Valakari when he played in Scotland with Motherwell. Why should I support FC Dallas over Dynamo?
A: Go to YouTube and type in "we all hate houston" and that should answer your question. We are more entertaining to watch.
Q: AJ do you talk Spanish?
A: I speak a little. I know French pretty well but that doesn’t go very far in our locker room.
Q: John Wayne or Clint Eastwood?
A: Clint Eastwood
Q: Who would you consider to be the greatest ever Australian soccer player?
A: Tim Cahill
Q: Giants or Pats?
A: It depends on the spread but I can't go against Brady.
