News and Notes - 9/23/2006

Just a few notes....

Bayern Win, Move to the Top of the Bundesliga
Bayern won their match against Aachen today, 2-1 in Munich. Mark van Bommel scored the game winner in the 55th minute. Aachen had a tieing goal disallowed late in the match, and Bayern moved into a tie for 1st in the Bundesliga.

FC Dallas partner with Clube Atletico Paranaense
According to, FC Dallas signed a partnership with Brasilian side, Clube Atletico Paranaense. The deal includes a home and away series, starting next season. I wrote about doing something along these lines here, so I think that this is a great step forward for MLS. Getting MLS clubs to work closely with foreign, established clubs will only produce better options on how to play and train. Being able to travel to Brasil for a friendly will be a great experience for the players and the club, as it will lay the ground work for how to properly organize any potential Copa Libertadores trips to Brasil. This is a good thing for MLS.
