  • Women’s soccer league officially getting more official U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati talked with a few reporters yesterday (I had a conflict that involved cat-herding, I mean, youth soccer coaching) about the progress toward a new women’s soccer league. The important takeaway wasn’t what was said. It was who said it. If you read my last post on the matter, you know that there ...
  • Hope Solo back on the Twitter rampage So the U.S. women’s soccer team cruised through its game against Colombia today, apart from that nasty punch to Abby Wambach’s face. Three goals, solid win. No problem, right? https://twitter.com/hopesolo/status/229287000996458496 Or maybe not. That was her second Tweet after the game. The first was dated 2:44 p.m. ET. The game ended around 1:50 p.m. That’s quick. I didn’t hear ...
  • MLS: Who’s paying cash for clunkers? Soccer America’s Paul Kennedy has a provocative piece on Major League Soccer teams’ wild misses in judging talent. Sure, teams make mistakes all the time, but in this new era with more guaranteed contracts, those mistakes can be more costly. Kennedy singles out Toronto and the signing of Latvian left back Raivis Hscanovics, about whom Wikipedia ...
  • 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 ...
  • Monday Myriad: Bye-bye, Beckham Admit it. You never thought David Beckham would be here as long as he was. When I spoke with him in 2008, a year into the “experiment,” he was saying all the right things. Then over the years, he stuck with the Galaxy but had trouble convincing fans of his commitment to the team. But in 2011, ...
  • Progress in women’s soccer? 2011 Algarve Cup reaction: Great tuneup for the Women’s World Cup. USA with a close win over Japan, then a comeback win over Iceland in the final. Pity that Germany and France didn’t participate. Nice to follow it on MatchTracker. 2012 Algarve Cup reaction: WHY ISN’T THIS TELEVISED?! THE MEDIA AND US SOCCER SHOULD BE ASHAMED! ...
  • Friday Myriad: Not out of our league To be perfectly honest, we’re in a lull. No Tour, no huge world championships (no disrespect to the folks with rifles and pistols), etc. Plenty of league games, though. Through the weekend, eight Mexican league games are on various networks. On Saturday, seven MLS games are on Direct Kick / MLSSoccer.com. See Soccer America listings ...
  • MLS Player News: Dallas debut, Bunbury’s case Just a little experiment in gathering bits of news — feedback welcome. Jon Conway, GK, Toronto — Not likely to play but happy to return home to Philly area. Main reason for inclusion here, of course: Dad’s name is Tim Conway. (Delaware County Times) Columbus – In dire need of a DP? Not going to get one ...
  • MLS: Time to quit playing hardball You may have already seen former FC Dallas player Bobby Warshaw’s epic takedown of anti-MLS snobbery. If not, please pause here and go read it. Warshaw makes a realistic case, conceding a few problems with the “crazy, messed-up league.” Pay disparities within a team and attendance disparities between them are hardly unique to MLS, but the ...
  • Friday Myriad: Wimbledon, World Cup, le Tour Funny thing about July 4th weekend – the most important action in the sports world is all overseas. The three-day absence from posting here won’t happen often. Had a lot of actual paid work to do, plus a week of solo parenting. Shouldn’t have a break like this until vacation. Off we go (all times ET) … HEADLINES Water ...
