  • MLS Cup: An experiment The idea is to cut the clutter. I’m not going to give you every shot, foul, etc. I’m going to give you the score, a sense of who has the better of the run of play (the more arrows, the more dominant the team is right now), and the key plays. Enjoy. Final score: 1-0 Galaxy. Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailPrintMoreTumblrGooglePinterestRedditStumbleUpon
  • Washington Spirit vs. FC Kansas City: Goal rush What’s changed for the Washington Spirit this season? It’s pretty simple. Goals. Never before had the Spirit scored three goals in a half. Only once last season did they have three or more in a game. Tonight, they had three in the first half and held on to beat FC Kansas City 3-1. We can’t read too ...
  • NWSL expansion, MLS precedent and devious tactics Want some irony? The person at the epicenter of the biggest controversy in MLS expansion draft history is now the managing director of the Houston Dash, which will stock its roster in the first NWSL expansion draft Friday. Brian Ching was (and still is) a Houston legend, a key figure in the Dynamo’s early MLS success. The ...
  • Washington Spirit vs. FC Kansas City: Meet the new boss A promising performance against a talented team. A second-half setback. Then a controversial call late, with Diana Matheson stepping up to convert the penalty kick. That was the Washington Spirit’s April 20 game against Western New York. And it happened again last night against FC Kansas City. So in a sense, the Spirit has simply gotten back ...
  • Tales of soccer survival: MISL’s Milwaukee Wave For a few years, indoor soccer was the dominant form of the game in the United States, with more than 10,000 watching the hybrid of hockey and outdoor soccer. Serbian-born Preki carved out a nice career in the indoor game before going outside with MLS and proving that his skills translated to a bigger field ...
  • Virtual Viewing Party: Sunday’s games We’re going to keep this room open all day for people to stop by and chat in case Twitter’s down. During the day, you’ll see some Twitter highlights pop through. Our hosts are: Beau Dure, SportsMyriad.com / USA TODAY / Huffington Post Dan Loney, BigSoccer.com Bruce McGuire, DuNord.com Jenna Pel, All White Kit Doug Roberson, Atlanta Journal-Constitution Aaron Stollar, Fighting Talker / ...
  • The U.S. Open Cup, women’s soccer and “data points” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati is an economist by trade — which is good, because if you see the financial documents linked later on, you’ll remember that he doesn’t get paid for his role with the federation. (Perhaps it’s a little unfair that the person making the big bucks, CEO Dan Flynn, rarely has to ...
  • MLS in the Silverdome — raise the roof, y’all! Josh Hakala has the story of an innovative idea to remove all the disadvantages of the Silverdome as an MLS venue in one swoop. It’s simple but brilliant: Put a roof at the top of the lower (edit: not upper, which makes no sense) deck, creating an enclosed space below — two of them, actually ...
  • Washington Spirit vs. Portland: The real deal I had a lot of fun tonight on Twitter at the expense of the fans and the ref fawning over Alex Morgan tonight at the SoccerPlex, where attendance was one starting lineup north of 5,000. But the takeaway from tonight’s game is this: The Portland Thorns aren’t just hype. They’re great. All the preseason attention went to ...
  • ‘Enduring Spirit’ epilogue: Thoughts from Diana Matheson Here’s proof, once again, that soccer karma doesn’t exist: Through the Spirit office, I asked several players (not all, so don’t go accusing people) a few follow-up questions about the 2014 season, thinking I would publish a short epilogue to the tale of their 2013 season, Enduring Spirit. The epilogue didn’t come to pass, and I wound ...
