By no means is FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman predictable. But in his time on the job as FCD’s head coach one thing he’s done consistently as the rises in North Texas is start his training sessions earlier to avoid such heat. Monday marked the first time he has done so this season, with the session beginning at 9 a.m. and over just after 11. Here’s more from the gaffer on the change.

“We had two scenarios. If we had won against Charlotte, that would have given us more playing time," Hyndman said. "We wouldn’t have been able to take Thursday and Friday off because we would have had a game again on Tuesday. And then after that game, we would have moved it up. Since that game didn’t go the way we wanted it to go, we just moved it up right away to give the guys last Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday off. So that’s four days and then today we had a wonderful overcast so we had a good, hard training today.”
