Ronaldo might give that league some MORE credibility.

If MLS is a joke and a good majority of the US team does ply they trade there or had their formative years in MLS and bussin everybody tail in CONCACAF REGULARLY.....imagine what that says about the Mexican League, Costa Rican League and any other CONCACAF country domestic league.

I hope that is a lie.

There are two possible outcomes:

#1:  He will elevate the MLS to new heights.
#2:  He will fall off the edge of the planet.

dont get me wrong. the mls has been extremely beneficial to U.S mens teams. I jjust feel as a marketing the league that they are hitting their ceiling. They should be trying to become less centralised and stop with the jokey gimmicks, so that they can get guys like ronaldo and such, and actually be taken seriosuly.... i really cant get over red bull   ::)

No way No point that happening.

Beckham is who most people recognize in the US as a footballer outside the US that is significant. Gettin Ronaldo will only get people who already know about football in America. He may add credibility to the game but if yuh ent know Ronaldo already...yuh not gonna go to see him.

Besides that he ent doing it.

MLS looking fuh dollars and that is the bottom line...it would cost more to get Ronaldo and pay him than he would bring in Return.

You all think this rumour funny.

I real laugh when i heard how the club owner say he could pull of the deal especilly since Ztalan and cappello had an arguement  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

I don't think you guys understand what's really going on in the US football league. The MLS is a good league and the A-League (division 1 & 2) are pretty decent leagues as well. Until we could do better at an regional level professionally, then we need to respect these leagues, players, etc. Just imagine, we men on this forum feel our PFL better than the MLS and i even heard players from Trinidad national team say that our team (former w-connection players) could beat any team in the MLS at any time. Sure!!!! Guess what? Those same players praying right now to get a contract in the MLS (like literally praying for things to work out).  Just imagine, San Juan leading 5-0 on aggregate and just need to tie a blasted game, gave away 6 goals to the hands of DC United and thus were thown out of the concacaf club championship. Just imagine it have A-League team that convincly defeat and/or draw with these MLS teams sometimes. Yes, the MLS is a shit league. You got that right buddy!!

it isn't surprising at all that Ronaldo would consider this for several reasons

1) the man achieve almost everything in football, and might be a 3-time world cup winner in a few months time

2) it is a commonly held opinion that he has lost his zeal for the game, why not go to a league of lower intensity.

3) He like to lime with supermodels.  where better to live than NYC?

Ent   ;D  but seriously though.   I would love to see that happen because if them men happen to get him fuh real they going and sellout that GIANTS stadium fuh the res a de season.  I saying that because I is a football man and I never see a mls game live yet, and I only 20mins if that much from the medowlands so if that happen I know i going to see him play fuh sure atleast the first game.   So if I do it what you think the res a brazilians and portugese and central americans that live in Newark and the rest ah New Jersey and New York going and do.  Don't even mention the new sponsorship deals he would get to promote the mls to the 11 Million Illegal immigrants that live in the U.S.A and the legal one an dem too....stuepssssssssss...I say if he really come here is to try to make some stupid money because if you live in America and yuh know how they like to sponsor thing you go see and understand exactly what I saying.

Post by: Jah Gol on April 07, 2006, 06:10:42 AM
MLS from an organisational standpoint can be rated with any other league in Europe. When it comes to football however tactically and technically its a few steps down. That being said it is important to note that  you can't compare MLS with European league because the league is just over 10 years old and America not by any stretch of the imagination can be called a football nation.The largest demographic for football participation is still teenage girls. A lot of Americans still think football is a womens sport. I'm not trying be rude its just what I've read on forums and experienced heard first hand. This is likely to change after the World Cup since for the first time ever their broadcasting all the games, unfortunately though not all of them live

I wouldn't right off MLS right now. I'm looking at what Chivas USA is doing and the Investment of Red Bull in to the league and it clear to me that at least from a corporate perspective the league has tremendous potential. There is talk of Chelsea and Barcelona entering into some kind of arrangement with the MLS. I wouldn't execute this stratgy for too long becuse the UAE (Dubai particularly) is investing considerably to become the sporting capital of the world. Man U already has a base there. The MLS should try build up domestic support for the sport. Lots of old players look to the Middle East after their European careers. In about 10-15 years the league will really be something. For us to take the league more seriously we'll have to see more South Americans in MLS. The day I see MLS competing with European clubs for the same player is when MLS will have arrived.

But as it is right now a match against the best 2 teams in MLS looks the same way as a match between the worst 2. Run hard, tackle hard, voom kick fight hard for every air ball essentially more brawn than guile and intelligence. Its not even slightly attractive. I watch the games just to see if they are getting better and scout Trinis and Jamaicans. They will get better but only if they can find a better way of converting youth players into professional. I was looking at "American Soccer" on GOL TV and one prominent coach said the same thing. In reality, we face a similar problem here. How do we make youth talent, professional taltent?

for the record, Jablotech was leading 5-2 after the trinidad leg and lost 4-0 in the US after Cyd Gray was sent off after 40 minutes while the score was 0-0.

 :-\ Ah doh know how some body cud even ask dat question, when we all seeing Johnson making $750,000, how on earth dat cud be monthly even worse yet weekly, hello..... If Ronaldinho, Rooney and Beckham names was dey, ah would have understood de thought behind de question. Dat $31,500 per year is really ridiculous, ah would like to believe, in his contract there is a separate allowance for housing/apartment and a car. If I'm correct, well dat money not 2 bad, when yuh around Sealy's age, ah not sure, but ah think he is 22 or 23 yrs old, wid no wife and kids, just you and your girlfriend, a car payment and yuh send some money home tuh help yuh parents (if dey need it) you should be living descent. That salary ($31,5000) is broken down into the folowing gross pay, $606.00/weekly, $1,212.00/bi- weekly and $2,424.00/monthly, he making $15.15/ hour :o :o HIGHLY BLESSED.

Post by: Trini on April 18, 2007, 04:59:19 AM
Yea, that is real poor for true...

But then again, there might be some other perks and bonuses that come with his specific deal (i hope) that are not listed, eg housing, car, etc...

Also, I think he have his degree from a US school right...And now he would most probably have his green card sorted out...so looking at the bigger picture...he could be playing with the long term aim of attracting more national call ups and bigger club attention, as well as consistency for a pay raise...

If all that fall thru, he could very easily just settle in the US and fall back on his degree and make 2-3 times what he making now, or even go into some kinda sports admin. The main thing is that he have a foundation in the US.
I know he wish he coulda be making some more $$ for real, but if yuh reading this Scott, hold some strain man, things will look up soon, one way or another...

Them top men who playing pro league in T&T I feel making the equiv. in terms of standard of living, so he still doing better than most if not all of them, plus the US factor...

But Eddie J salary...wheys... That woulda inspire me to play like I possessed and earn some more recognition.

Sealy still on his first contract. So even doh he coreing it eh make no diference. But now his stock rising. So hopefully when they come to negotiation time he could command more. But they does chick feed men over there...dem foriegners doh make plenty. This is because in MLS, every team does pay piece of a players salary and then a group of investors does pay the rest...WHO IS SCOTT? WHat can he sell? Unless he become household and sellable he will get chick feed. ASk AVERY JOHN. why you think he was trying to go england so bad. HE making scott money...take a look at 2006 for all teams....

What I don't understand is why Sealy settling for medicoracy. He is one of the top strikers on the team, he starts almost every game and he is not in rookie status anymore. It hard to see what he is being paid as compared to other players who are in and around the same calibre as him. Sealy, your agent sleeping or what?

Yuh clarify someting fuh we dey kiffysmooth, there was an older thread about whether or not the MLS players are provided w/various amenities to cover accomodation and incidentals, your post seems to confirm that, in which case you could easily assign some multiplier to the MLS salaries, good going Scott, keep yuh head up

Boss, thanks for helping out the thread but listen..... You feel they ain't taking care of Jimmy Conrad and Johnson and them fellas expenses too? Of course they are!!! Of course we have to compare earnings because we must not settle for medicracy. Scott has been a prolific player at Kansas since his rookie season and the club have not shown favorable appreciation for his efforts. When a club put a price on you, thats how much they think you are worth. Is Scott worth US$35,000 a year? HELL NO!!!

He might as well use his degree and start off at $40 plus thousand a year working full time. He is worth more and he deserves it. They taking advantage of him and I don't like that. Another minority have to struggle in the white man country.  Why? For nothing!! Steups!!!

Well I really hope he gets something better as you say. And I hope he really peak at the right time. Anyways, thanks!

Fellas calm down nah. 

I eh no the man contract situation, however, it is possible that he signed a 3 yr deal as a rookie and he in the process of negotiation.  It's the MLS it have nothing to do with race.  He was rookie when he signed his first contract and now he will get his chance.

I know for a fact that there is a rookie on the KC Wizards team that signed a three yr deal this year and he probably go end up in the same situation.

I wonder what Sealy does think when is both he and Johnson starting, but Johnson making 23 times what he make to sweat.

I suppose if yuh have a good season and a good agent, you could get a nice raise.
I eh know if yuh could live on $31,500 a year nah, yuh need a side-hustle in Wal mart

If they don't want to pay him more when he renewing his contract, then I would have a big problem with that.  But remember when Stern was at Columbus scoring all them goals, the Crew preferred to sell him to the Englsh leagues than pay him.  The MLS salary structure is wack!!!

Some real dotish calculations here in dis thread. $31,000 is not bad money for Sealy. Firstly, not all players get rent or other perks paid in MLS. Man talking bout $15 an hour. De man practicing 2 hrs a day and maybe have a meeting or 2 and a team appearance at a school or something during de week and then a game on de weekend. How yuh could calculate an hourly rate for a soccer player and get a true value? Most mid to low level MLS players are linked to all kinda coaching programs where dey get paid at least $50 us per hour. Let we stop trying to make de man look like he sucking salt when we really doh understand de system nah. Let us not even compare de money to PFL players cause it not even close. As fuh pulling bull and making dat in Broolyn, de only way dat happening in 2 hrs is if yuh robbing yuh passengers.

Salary is based on what contract you sign coming out of college not on how much goals you score. Not saying there are no incentives in there.

30K a year is a typical rookie salary for MLS.

The average players in the league are not making big bucks.

Most players comming out of colege still sign because even though the money is small the league is professional and can be a good stepping stone for some .

Stern John is a good example.


What choices did Sealy have if he wanted to continue his football career.

Hope for something to materialize in Europe,hardly likely
Take the MLS offer
Go back home and Play for Joe Public
Play in the A league


MLS aint such a bad choice.

Rahim did not take the offer tried to make it in europe and it did not pay off
verdict still out on sealy

Professional football is not easy.

With numbers you listed above, ah guess it is very much worth it tuh go tuh de MLS, especially when ah sure may be few if any making dat. There was ah thread about highest paid players in T&T, and ah believe is men like Dwarika, Glasgow and Whitley probably up there. Although ah know some men doh like de MLS, but is ah good move when yuh check it out. Ah not sure, but unless de government give a player a house or car, all yuh personal bills go be coming out ah dat $15,226.99, and in de MLS it seem some or all de players does get dey mortgage/rent, car, utilities etc taken cared of. I'm just assuming ah sure somebody might be able to confirm dat info about de local players benefits. HIGHLY BLESSED.

Yuh se how shit does f*****g start, any way dis is my cup ah tea, so ah go del wid it. Ah does try tuh be cool here wid every body, but yuh does always find ah c**k s****r trying tuh dis de order.

Ah doh know wey de f**k yuh living, but in de USA, a lot of people get paid hourly, all ah was doing is giving food fuh thought. Ah cah believe yuh go post dat shit, yuh have tuh be ah real c**t tuh tell we is 2 hrs a day. Who de f**k here doh know dat is not 8, 10 or 12 hrs a day a footballer does put in tuh get paid?

I guess, given the housing allowances, and perhaps the standard of living in Kansas, that might be decent.
I could tell you around here, that kinda money have you scrambling to pay bills every month. Doh talk bout when it get cold and they hit you the heating bill.

The spread is eye-opening though.  As I've stated above, I wonder how that kind of disparity affects team relationships. Is it just one of those things, or do the lower-paid players sit home thinking - man, if I had even $1000 more a month, I could replace this old car. While Eddie rolling in he Bimmer.

Man here talking that this is small money. I was making that back in 01 (after Uncle sam take he share) coming out from ah good college. I know Feds, Agents, Government Officials, Police officers, Health Care professionals, Pro Firefighters, State Employees here that make that.

Dem is Athletes and Entertainers also, all he doing is kicking ah ball on a pitch for 90 mins. With about 2minutes of touching de ball and running an average of 4 miles. That is a better living than most americans have. He lives in the Midwest and the cost of living is a litte less there 31k is reasonable, where as Avery in boston, boy I does pray for meh bredda everyday.

However what he does in that time is priceless, I see him play against DC, man he was all over de field and fighting de game. I know EJ making more than him, but in due time, with the way he is playing, he will make money. I really hope so...and take himself to Europe.

Supa is true I have watched DC train and they only spend about 4 Hrs on the field and about 2 hrs in the gym per day. There is a lot of down time for them.

MLS pays for part of their salaries and endorsements pays another portion also.

Ah will go so far tuh say dat ah was fortunate as you, tuh see ah past MLS team (Miami Fusion) train and go through their daily routine, cuz meh brother- in- law (de wife youngest brother) use tuh get ah lil sweat wid dem.

Dude, not matter what you want to say. Compared to rest of the players salaries. He is not making shi@# in comparison given his past performances.

Even if dey paying he rent, is still small money. In de mid nineties, when ah graduated from aviation school, ah was making more dan dat tuh start wid de airline. Things have changed since den, and cost of living also. The problem wid dis therad, is dat some men come tuh de USA, and dey haven't set any goals for themselves, and therefore dey so stuck on de small money thing, dat tuh dem $31,500.00 is good money. Well ah have news fuh yuh, it is not good money. Yuh will be able tuh put food on de table and reach tuh work, but de lil things like ah nice vacation, forget it. When yuh take yuh 2,3 or 4 weeks vacation, yuh go spending it at home watching ESPN. Yuh go cah even buy ah ticket and go T&T tuh visit yuh family, worst yet change money tuh spend. Any way let meh move on, cuz ah have Mr Fantastic post tuh reply to. HIGHLY BLESSED.

Yuh know every time ah say, alright let meh move on and ignore Fantastic, yuh does come with some s**t post, tuh get meh started again. Well ah would like as you said, dis verbal war tuh end, but ah cah promise yuh dat nah, cuz anytime yuh post some s**t tuh me, look over yuh shoulders ah right dey. Ah remember when TT and TI had dey verbal war, it went on fuh ah while, but it look we go break de record on de forum, fuh de longest verbal war. Ah see yuh give meh ah handle, seeing dat ah like respect so much leh meh give yuh yours Mr. Fantastic. Sir, yuh seem like ah fellah wid some education, go back, read and understand every post, every time ah post, de majority of it is in response tuh some s**t yuh post. Again go back and read and understand, if dat is 2 much fuh yuh tuh do, let yuh wife, girlfriend or boyfriend, daughter, son or neighbor, read it and break it down fuh yuh. In no way I said Scott cah eat wid $31,500.00, in my book dat is ah dis tuh Scott, and ah doh promote disrespect, ah was talking bout de regular man on de street making dat money, he would be able tuh put food on de table, but ah simple thing as a vacation, it would be ah problem, and he might have to stay home and watch ESPN for his 2,3 or 4 weeks of vacation. Yuh know what, yuh getting meh real f*****g KROSS fuh real, way de f**k yuh see some body say he cah eat? I don't know de liitle things he does like coaching, visiting schools, etc, which ah sure all of it is not fuh free, plus de man does get he lil T&T call up, tuh play fuh he country, dat is cash in de bank right dey. It is obviously he his paying his bills and living decent. Dat is not de arguement on dis thread, whether he cud eat, yes or no. We are simple saying dat we are quite surprised, dat a professional baller only being paid dat money in de MLS, especially when yuh on de starting eleven, and dat he should be making more for his service on de field. That is it, nothing more, nothing less. Again read and understand.

Next thing, ah doh know if yuh was dragged up wid no manners, although ah does get KROSS and cuss on de forum, when clowns like yuh dis, let meh make yuh know, dat ah was well brought up and sent tuh school tuh get some education. Yuh talking bout ah like respect so much, take dis lil advice from Supa, it takes nothing off your skin tuh be polite and have respect for another human being, always give dat person respect, when he/she step out ah line, den yuh deal wid it in your own way. Well if yuh think ah wrong tuh promote respect on de forum, keep up yuh s**t and some body go dis yuh program, we ar not in 1950 or 1951, dis is 2007, it have real people out dey doh tolerate disrespect, dey will just pop it out and yuh will be history, so keep it up.

Yuh saying is lil boi thing, cuz dat is de easy way out fuh yuh, so yuh use dat term. Ah simple one again, ah gave yuh de address, cuz yuh said yuh not on me wid dat cyberspace bad man thing, well all gave yuh those 3 options, just tuh let yuh know dat we are for real, dis eh no cyberspace crew here, doh get it twisted. Again I is ah breddah full ah love and respect fuh meh fellow human being, but Supa eh no punk, if ah boi disrespect me or meh love ones, ah cud defend dat with or without de Enterprise, although ah went tuh school and get meh lil education and mama thought meh manners and respect, ah cud also flip and be ah gangster in ah heart beat.

Breds you could easily make more than that waiting tables or valeting cars and that's take home...no taxes ;D .

What kills me though is that they'll pay him that crap and then if a European clubs comes knocking they won't let him go.

which is why i stated sometime ago that MLS is no place for Caribbean players. The League itself structures the contracts where they and not the clubs have legal rights to any player's transfer fees. The MLS is good for you retiring and calling it a day which is what Becks will be doing ova di next 5 yrs ;D

You have to look on the other side, true the money is peanuts, but the brother is getting to do what he loves playing football at a very competitive level.

The other thing is that you build a name for yourself, by saying that you are an MLS player, which you can use to make some decent side change by give clinics for kids, running a football school, a TD for a city which pays well later on in life.
Title: Seattle Welcomes the MLS in 2009

Seattle to get expansion MLS franchise, will begin play in 2009

SEATTLE - Major League Soccer has granted an expansion franchise to Seattle that will begin play at Qwest Field in 2009 and will be owned in part by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.

"I can confirm that commissioner Don Garber is going to travel to Seattle for an announcement Tuesday of the expansion of Major League Soccer for the future into the Seattle market," Dan Courtemanche, MLS senior vice president for marketing and communications, said Friday by phone from league headquarters in New York.

Gary Wright, a spokesman for First and Goal, Inc., the subsidiary that operates Qwest Field for Allen's Vulcan, Inc., said Allen will be one of the team's owners. Allen already owns the Seattle Seahawks of the NFL, who play at Qwest Field, and the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers.

Adrian Hanauer, owner of the Seattle Sounders of the United Soccer Leagues, confirmed Friday night that he and Joe Roth, a Hollywood mogul, will be the other owners of the new team.

"(It's) been a lot of hard work, but something the city deserves," Hanauer said.

Roth will own the majority share.

Vulcan Inc., spokesman Michael Nank confirmed the new MLS team, which has been rumoured for months, will begin play in Qwest Field during the '09 MLS season. League seasons run from April into November.

Nank pointed out that the US$430-million stadium, which has a playing surface of synthetic Field Turf and opened in 2002, was specifically designed for both football and soccer. The dual use was one of the selling points made to secure $300 million in public money that funded the stadium's construction. The Sounders, of the second-tier USL, currently play many of their games in the 67,000-seat facility.

Seattle will be the 15th team in MLS. The league is bringing a team back to San Jose, Calif., for the 2008 season to balance its conferences with seven teams each. MLS has stated its intention of expanding to 16 teams in the next few years.

This will be the first time the highest level of professional soccer in North America has a had a team in Seattle since the original Sounders played in the North American Soccer League from 1974 until the team folded in 1983.

The reborn Sounders have been one of the top franchises in the United Soccer Leagues, winning four league championships in the last 12 years - including in 2005 and again this past season.

Hanauer would not comment on whether the Sounders would continue to operate in the USL after the new MLS team arrives, saying there will be more on that at Tuesday's news conference.

Allen's effort included a US$30-million expansion fee to MLS for Seattle's newest major professional sports franchise, which apparently will replace its oldest. The SuperSonics of the NBA are in court with the city over that team's attempt to buy out the final two years of its Seattle lease and move to Oklahoma City in 2008. Even if the Sonics lose their case, they plan to leave Seattle when their lease ends in 2010.

Big Up!

Not too sure how I feel about this...I know the Northwest is a soccer hotbed and can draw from some of the Whitecaps and Sounders base...but MLS needs to guard against expanding too soon.  This bodes well for Philadelphia though, likely MLS will have to establish an eastern franchise to fully balance the league.

Post by: DeSoWa on November 12, 2007, 01:23:19 PM
I hear what you are saying with the growing too fast thing for MLS, but if you look at it, the NorthWest is starving for a MLS team. We have a very large "latino" and asian population here who follows the sport, plus all the English and Irish pubs are always packed on weekends when the game are on. So I think they would do very well here. California at present have 2 teams (both in LA) and I think they are adding another next year (San Jose), then we have another 2 in Texas, apart from that the closest on this side of the country is probably in Utah. Most of the other teams are in the mid west and East and you still think it''s more feasible in Philly?

I reallly hope they can get another team in 2009 to make it even though.

Big Up!

Big Up!

I hear you, I don't know too much about the soccer base in the NW, but as I said I know support for the sport can be strong due to the presence of the A-league teams...but more so on the strength of the soccer programs at the NW colleges...there's great tradition there going back to Clive Charles at OSU (?) and beyond.

Yeah, I think Philly is the next logical choice in the east...it's the only major Atlantic area city without a team and there's good support for their minor league team, plus the support of the smaller colleges in PA to draw upon. I remember reading earlier this year some competition or the other they were having with an eye towards naming a potential MLS team...so I know that the city at least anticipates having a team.

What makes that 'proper' pray tell?

I think you're just more familiar with the 'table' format rather than the current MLS format but a couple things:

1. It's a format that American fans can readily identify with since it comports with Divisional formats used in the other professional sports here in the US.

2. The divisional format works well here in the US because unlike virtually every other footballing country in the world, the US is a huge expanse and dividing the teams up regionally makes sense from a logistics standpoint.  Easier to travel within your own division regularly and make a handful of non-division visits to a distant city (say LA/NY) every now and then...rather than putting teams thru the unnecessary expense and inconvenience.

3. Fans can readily identify with rivalries within the region...so to fans in NY,  rivalries with NJ, MD, PA teams etc. makes more sense than say playing less intense games against teams from KC, Miami, Texas etc.

4. MLS doesn't have nearly enough teams to support a table format, currently there are only 15-16 teams in the MLS...relegation assumes that there are enough teams to support basically two leagues...the Top league and the lower league...like the EPL and Championship.  To shift to this format would mean you have an 8-team MLS and an 8-team relegated sub-league.

Currently they are separate business entities, but perhaps a solution to this would be a merger between the MLS and A-League, with the lowest performing MLS clubs being relegated to the A-League, and the top two A-League teams being promoted.

Easy to disparage that which you don't understand.  The MLS brain-thrust was simply trying to tailor the game for the American public when they started with the shootout (something seen in Hockey)...they thought it would make the game more exciting.  The same 'American' soccer public spoke out and told them it was a stupid idea and they changed the rules.  To try and make it seem like it was an unwillingness by MLS to comport to international standard is just ridiculous.

quarters instead of halves ( advertisment side of american sports)

shootouts i believe was a way of deciding games( no american sport ends in  a tie)

bigger goal posts

It's official: Seattle to get MLS team in 2009

Major League Soccer announced today that Seattle will begin play during the 2009 season. The Seattle team will play all home matches at Qwest Field.

"We are proud to award our 15th team to Seattle, a world-class city and tremendous soccer market," said MLS commissioner Don Garber.

MLS granted a club to Seattle after securing an ownership agreement with Hollywood movie studio executive Joe Roth, Sounders owner Adrian Hanauer, actor Drew Carey and Paul Allen's Vulcan Sports & Entertainment.

"The addition of Seattle to MLS provides us with a true gateway to Asia for a sport that is at the forefront of today's globalization," Garber said.

There is no decision yet about the team's nickname, and the team said fans will be asked for suggestions. The team's Web site is mlsinseattle.com.

The Sounders will play their final season in the United Soccer League in 2008.

MLS, the top professional soccer league in the United States and Canada, currently has teams in 13 cities. It will expand to 16 teams, with San Jose in 2008 and potentially Philadelphia or St. Louis joining Seattle as the newbies in 2009.

Pa. county council agrees to contribute to stadium for possible MLS franchise
 
October 20, 2007

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) -- Delaware County officials and potential owners of a Major League Soccer franchise reached a key agreement on funding for the construction of a soccer stadium on the Chester waterfront.

The County Council and the investors group agreed to terms Friday on a deal that calls for the county to contribute $30 million toward a proposed $115 million stadium that would be home to a Philadelphia-area expansion team.

ADVERTISEMENT
 
 
"This is a culmination of over a month's worth of meetings where the goals the county set forth in beginning were met," said Andrew Reilly, chairman of the County Council. "But it's only the first step in the process."

The MLS has 13 teams, but plans to expand by the end of the year, and has expressed interest in a franchise in the Philadelphia area.

The investment group also has support from Gov. Ed Rendell, who hopes the Legislature will authorize state funds for the project.

The investors want to secure public funding for the stadium in time for the league to announce Philadelphia as an expansion team at the MLS championship game Nov. 18.

Chester officials have agreed to donate some land at the stadium site, located just south of the Commodore Barry Bridge.

Face it, time flies.

http://www.mlsinseattle.com/article.aspx?id=530

Faster and faster the world spins and before you know it, some date that initially seemed far off is suddenly in your rearview mirror.

Which brings us to todays subject: Major League Soccers opening day in April 2009 and the first official game for Seattles expansion team.

Sixteen months away. That sure sounds like a lot of time, but take a closer look.

Figuring you to be more attuned to sports and entertainment than, say, politics, lets turn back the calendar by 16 months and determine just how long ago that now seems.

In July of 2006, Bruce Arena still had a job as U.S. national team coach. Floyd Landis owned an untarnished image and the yellow jersey in the Tour de France. And Italys Marco Materazzi was whispering not-so-pleasant words in the ear of Frances Zinedine Zidane.

Does it feel like ancient history or just yesterday?

For many in the MLS, 16 months sounds like an eternity. In fact, Commissioner Don Garber says Seattle will be the beneficiary of the longest lead time yet for an expansion franchise. By contrast, Real Salt Lake was put together in eight months and San Joses preparations will be compressed into nine months before beginning play next season.

Seattle is getting the optimal amount of time, the lead time we would like all of our teams to get, said Garber. It will allow them to secure their business operations, determine their brand and communicate that brand to the market.


Ready to Go
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unlike other MLS teams, Seattles business and marketing arm is already up and running. Vulcan Sports & Entertainment (VSE) is the parent organization of the Seahawks, and was already accepting MLS Seattle membership (season ticket) deposits before Day One was done.

Tod Leiweke, the CEO of VSE, has quickly learned some of the ways of Seattle area residents. Its a sophisticated and passionate market, but its not a place where people go out and buy tickets because you say its the right thing to do.

Youve got to earn their support, said Leiweke, When you do, they bring the passion.

Fans wasted precious little time responding to the news of the team. In the first 24 hours following the teams announcement more than 3,000 deposits were sold and 2,000 fans submitted suggestions for the team name.

Majority owner Joe Roth has launched many a motion picture over his 35 years in the entertainment business. All movies are composed of a business end and a creative end. In some ways, those two pieces are in place.

Tods organization is the very, very best at what they do, said Roth. To have them running the business operation is huge. It takes a tremendous load off me trying to build one.


Star Search
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, General Manager Owner Adrian Hanauer is assembling the team side of the operation.

Whereas most expansion teams begin filling their rosters with the dispersal draft (Seattle and the second 09 expansion team will hold theirs in November 08), Hanauer has already taken measures to build a squad beforehand.

Hanauers Seattle Sounders will return to Qwest Field to play a 15th season in the United Soccer Leagues next summer, and hes received permission from the MLS to promote the best Sounders players to the MLS team for 09. Among the returnees are all-stars Taylor Graham, Roger Levesque and Sebastien Le Toux, the USL First Division MVP.

Soccers played around the world and Seattle management is committed to searching the globe for great players. Everyones got Ronaldinhos address, but sometimes greatness must be discovered. If it requires a trip to Chile, China (Hanauers done that) or Timbuktu, the newest MLS team is determined to do whatevers necessary.
 
Already Roth and Hanauer have sketched an outline of the type of qualities they want in a player:

Smart, in terms of both making good decisions on and off the field, and quick thinking while in the game
Speed will be a huge component. Moving the ball quickly, closing down defensively.
Commitment to the city, the team and the community.

Our lead time allows us to be patient, disciplined and process-oriented instead of reactionary, Hanauer said. We get to build a strategy and execute around that strategy.


Locals Not to be Overlooked
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roth wants to establish a connection with the Washington State Youth Soccer Association, both to attract families to Qwest Field and to help produce boys and girls who will not only wear a Seattle jersey someday, but also that of the U.S. national team.

I hope we end up with a couple kids from the area, and a couple kids from the Sounders, Roth said. You want to bring in international players but at the same time its about growing your own. I think thats the way you make it work.

Once the franchise blueprint is completed, among the first orders of business will be hiring a coach and settling on a team name. Fans can offer their team name suggestions, while and Hanauer will develop a list of candidates for the former.

Brian Schmetzer, a Seattle native, an original Sounder and the USL sides coach for the past five seasons, will be considered, and for good reason. The Sounders have won two league titles and finished runner-up once in the last four years.


Youre Wanted
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Schmetzers passion is coaching, yet the ensuing months offer opportunities elsewhere.
Got an idea for a cant-miss nickname? Stick it in the email.

Got game? Prospective player tryouts will be scheduled for next winter.

Got brass? Pull that tuba out of the closet and polish it. Theres a marching band in the works, and if youve got the lungs, you could give Drew Carey an earful.

As much as wed like to win a championship in that first year or two, its going to take awhile, reasons Leiweke. We want to create an experience that people want to be part of, and we will do that.

The MLS Seattle movement is well underway. Kickoff is 16 months away, but to be ready on Opening Day, you might want to get started. Now.


Throw-Ins
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Previously, the longest lead time for any MLS expansion team was 11 months. Chicago made the most of it, winning both the MLS Cup and U.S. Open Cup in the Fires inaugural year of 1998. Toronto FC used a similar time span to sell-out every game this past seasonRushed, Real Salt Lake has gone 21-40-23 in its first three yearsPhiladelphia and St. Louis are considered to be the top contenders for the second expansion team in 2009.

Don't worry, he is fully aware of the situation and I am sure his people are making arrangements to get his name out there. I got the MLS in Seattle news from him way back in September when he was let go by the Whitecaps.

I must say Seattle is buzzing with this news...and I am happy to be here to experience it, I am already in line for season tickets  ;D

Well with all the talk of mih boy Jeff Green (Kevin who?) and the Sonics leaving town, I'm sure this will come as a welcomed breath of fresh air for the sports fans there. It bodes well for MLS and the sport in general that there is as much enthusiasm. Hopefully the franchise can follow thru and provide a quality product on the field to keep the fans coming for a long time. I say that because if there was one franchise I sure woulda pull a crowd on the regular I wouda say it woulda been Miami...and look what happen with that.

Shalrie Joseph having himself ah nice game...except fuh when he stand up on de ball and fall dong...do dat one plenty times mihself, so ah feeling better now, lol. Would like to see him bet a little more aggressive in midfield though, they're giving him room but he's not running at anybody. Nice article on him in this week's Sports Illustrated as well.

RFK is such a great football (and 'football' as well) stadium. I hope DC United's new stadium can approximate even a fraction of the charm that old Stadium has. It will be sad to see it go, but I know the neighbors won't miss it.

Half time: 1-0; Its a decent game thus far.  John playing well and the commentators could kiss...(finsih the sentence).  Houston looked flat, they miss Brian Chiiiiiing. I would expect them to play harder in the 2nd half; however, it would not change the result!!!

Another observation:

I have no love for NE...and none of their teams, Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots....but I'm supporting the Revs b/c of Avery and to a lesser extent Shalrie.

That said, you really have to hand it to the Patriots/Revs organization...Bob Kraft is a great owner and he runs a quality organization there. I like that he's physically present in DC for the game even though his undefeated Pats play in Buffalo later on tonight. Supposedly he's flying there after the game...and supposedly they bussed a number of fans down from NE to DC for free. Very nice touch. Helps that he has the deep pocket to afford it of course.

1-1 in the 66th...Ngwenya tying it up.

In my opinion, ah think he have de tools tuh cut in Europe and start on some ah dem teams 2, his work rate is very high, technique and touches are pretty good also, so he should be on de way soon. Well may be he came from Europe like many other players in de league and I just couldn't remember him :-\. HIGHLY BLESSED.

Is there something wrong with your memory or your understanding?  What 'fiery' temperament get Avery in trouble in Germany?  Avery got carded twice against Sweden and even by the most objective standard the second yellow was iffy.  Fault Avery if you will for being reckless...which even that I will dispute, but there was nothing personality-wise that has ever been a concern with Avery.  To say that he has a firery temperament is to say that he's temperamental and prone to emotions...which if you've ever seen Avery play does not even begin to describe him.  Eric Wynalda was just talking out his ass and so are you.

Additionally...that ref was very reticent to blow his whistle the entire game...I saw the play in question and both Wynalda and Foudy were over the top in criticizing him....both players were battling in the box when Avery stuck his foot in and won the ball as the attacking player fell.  I doh just come on this board and praise or defend man because they Trini, if anything I am one of our harshest critics, so take that bullshit elsewhere.

Construction to begin on Red Bull Park
by Frank Giase/The Star-Ledger


Wednesday November 28, 2007, 3:33 PM

Construction on Red Bull Park in Harrison, delayed more than a year due to cleanup and design issues, will begin next week, team executives told The Star-Ledger today.

The move comes less than two weeks after Red Bull bought out AEG's 50 percent stake in the Major League Soccer facility.

Red Bulls managing director Marc de Grandpre said the construction timeline is 18 to 20 months, with a target date to open in the summer of 2009.

The final design has been modified to become a soccer-specific facility, which will seat 25,189. The plans with AEG included a concert stage built into one end of the stadium and a cantilevered roof that would have covered the majority of the crowd. The Red Bull version eliminates the stage, reduces the number of luxury suites from 50 to 30 and features a translucent polycarbonate and aluminum roof that will cover every seat.

Red Bull Park will remain the centerpiece of a $1 billion Harrison development project that will include office space, retail outlets, parking decks and housing across the Passaic River from Newark.

The other projects are still in place and have nothing to do with the stadium redesign, de Grandpre said.

Good news that it is actually going to start building. Was happy to hear about the stadium over a year ago...then heard all the drama that came after. Think it's a good idea Red Bull gonna own d stadium 100% now, so there will b no conflict of interest cuz I know AEG wanted concert stage n all that (maybe somebody in Toronto or LA might have an opinion on whether d concerts r good or bad).

As for d design I like the roof, and d fact it covers all d seats. Hope they have some kinda heating in there too though cuz it gets reeeaaaaaaal cold in Giants stadium so hope Red Bull Park is better. In primary school I use to wish I was in Europe so I could go to d games every week and have a team to support (those in Europe who actually go to d games I envy u). I make do with what I have so Red Bull Park is big news to me cuz 2008 will b my 3rd yr as a Red Bull season ticket holder (no MLS jokes  :D ), I jus think 11-12 thousand ppl in  75,000 Giants stadium kills d whole atmosphere so d smaller setting will make things sooo much better. bless

The concert stage thing is a move to maximize revenue, particularly during the off-season.

In less than a yeah Seattle would be making dey own noise in the MLS...

Last week there was a voting for the name of the team..I was not to happy with the final 3 names, although the one I suggested made it..

So this is what they came up with

Seattle FC

Seattle Alliance

Seattle Republic

They had a 4th option for a write in..this was mainly because a lot of ppl..including myself wants them to keep the Sounders name in some form or fashion, mainly because it's already out there and has a lot of fan base...

So the big day is on Monday 7th April when they will announce the new name...I would post it as I get it...

In the mean time you all could guess which one of the 3 mentioned names wold make it or if Sounders would win out.

I like Seattle FC, but most ppl think it's boring and simple...

My other choice would be Seattle Sounders United FC ;D yeah it's ah mouthful, but better than the other 2 choices IMHO :beermug:

Oh on another note...they are currently in talks with Thiery Henry to come join them next year...in other words they get first dibs with him if you choose to come to the MLS   :beermug:

Big Up!

Dat 'common sense' talk wasn't meant fuh you man DeSoWa...that was more directed at de people holding the naming competition, just saying that ah doh see what the big debate is about.  At any rate though I think this competition is just some dog and pony show, I feel they already know what they going and call the franchise and that they just doing this to generate ah li'l bit ah publicity and let fans feel like they're part of the process.

The key component to MLS is stadium ownership.  When the Red Bulls vacate the Giant Stadium, Giants will  lose $250,000 USD per Red Bull home game plus concessions.

The strategy develop by MLS have teams with stadium is delivering profits to those teams.  Toronto FC will sellout all there home games, there second year in MLS with all season tickets sold.

BTW a would like to get Toronto FC tickets.

AND THE NEW NAME IS......... ;D

Seattle's new soccer name: Seattle Sounders FC

KOMO-TV STAFF

The Sounders name will live on in Seattle professional soccer.

The team's owners announced Monday that their new expansion MLS franchise will be named "Seattle Sounders FC" ("FC" stands for "Football Club").

The owners let fans vote online for one of three choices: Seattle Alliance, Seattle Republic or Seattle FC, but also allowed a write-in option.

The club's owners said Monday that 14,500 people voted, but 50 percent submitted a write-in name, of which 49 percent included a derivative of the name "Sounders." The full name, "Seattle Sounders FC" will differentiate the MLS team from other teams with a similar name, the owners said.

They said that in this case, the write-in name received over 20 percent more votes than any of the other choices.

The name Sounders has been identified with soccer in this community since 1974, the owners said, adding the name is locally-oriented, historic, and reflects the community.

The "Seattle Sounders" name will be transferred from the ownership group of the existing Seattle Sounders team, of which Adrian Hanauer is the principal owner, to the new ownership group. Hanauer is also a part owner of the new MLS team.

Also revealed Monday was the team's new badge and colors, which shows the Space Needle silhouetted against a green, blue and white background (seen above).

The Sounders FC will play at Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks. The expansion makes Seattle the league's 15th club and follows the rebirth of the San Jose Earthquakes, who will start play in 2008.

Joe Roth is the majority owner of the new franchise. The other members of the ownership group include Paul Allen's Vulcan Sports and Entertainment, actor and "The Price is Right" host Drew Carey and Adrian Hanauer, owner of the Seattle Sounders of the United Soccer Leagues. Hanauer will serve as the general manager.

Owners said deposits have been placed on more than 13,000 season tickets since the new team was announced last fall.

We have first dibs on him. They spoke to him (agent) and got word that he would come play for us when/if he leave Barca. It can be as early as 2009 (most likely in the summer at the end of La Liga).

Oh on another note...we might also get Keller or Hannehman (sp) - a seattle local- as one of our Goal Keepers.

I have no particular issue with it myself...I'm just cynical when it comes to certain things, especially the whole "we had three other names in mind, but the public has spoken"...and wouldn't you know it, they just so happen to have a compatible logo handy.

Seattle eye stunning Henry coup
by Tom Adams, 14 April 2008

http://www.setantasports.com/en/Sport/News/Football/2008/04/14/La-Liga-Henry-linked-to-Seattle/?facets/great-britain-locale/sport-space/football/

Seattle Sounders have sensationally claimed that they have the financial clout to attract Barcelona superstar Thierry Henry to MLS for the 2009 season.

The France international has not won over the Catalan press or public since his summer move from Arsenal and there have been suggestions that a move to America could be in the offing for one of a select group of players who enjoys worldwide fame on a similar scale to David Beckham.

Having seen the off-the-field benefits sparked by Beckhams arrival at LA Galaxy, the Seattle franchise who begin life as an MLS team next season have targeted Arsenals all-time record goalscorer as a potential signing.

However unlikely that may appear to be, Seattle are bankrolled by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and movie executive Joe Roth and the latter believes prising Henry from the clutches of one of world footballs biggest sides is not beyond the realms of financial reality.

To answer the question, would we pay for somebody on the scale of Thierry Henry ... the answer is yes, said Roth in The News Tribune.

You dont want to get a big name that doesnt organically fit in with the team or somebody who is past his game.

You cant force it. Its the same way with movies, you cant force a movie star into a role that he doesnt belong in.

Despite being far from a spent force in European football, particularly with Euro 2008 fast approaching, Henry has previously spoken of the attraction of playing in the MLS and this has only spurred Seattles interest in one of The Premier Leagues finest ever players.

Part owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer is determined to pursue the possibility of recruiting Henry for an MLS league that, whilst accused of lacking quality, certainly does not suffer from a shortage of ambition.

"Thierry Henry is one of my favorite players of all time. He has spoken in the past about coming to MLS to play soccer," Hanauer said recently.

"I am now in a position with the Seattle franchise to consider such a player. It would be irresponsible of me not to explore and consider a possibility like this."

Microsoft to sponsor Seattle's new MLS team

http://msn.foxsports.com/soccer/story/8186252/Microsoft-to-sponsor-Seattle's-new-MLS-team

SEATTLE (AP) - Microsoft Corp. will become the naming sponsor for the Seattle Sounders FC when the expansion Major League Soccer team begins play in the 2009 season.

The world's largest software maker's Xbox 360 Live brand will be prominently displayed on the front of the Sounders' green and blue jerseys.

"Microsoft is the place to be in Seattle," Sounders co-owner Joe Roth said of the Redmond-based company.

"The big decisions are the critical decisions. They're the one's that matter," the Hollywood filmmaker added. "Seattle being the city turned out to be a critical decision, my partners turned out to be a critical decision, Microsoft coming in on the ground floor with Xbox, a critical decision. Now, we've got to put a team together."

Nearly a year from still taking the field, the franchise has checked off every major mark on its to-do list, from securing corporate sponsorship, to the creation of its own fan organization that will have the power every four years to vote out the current general manager if the team fails to perform.

Tod Leiweke, CEO of Vulcan Sports and Entertainment, a partner in the ownership group, said Wednesday the team has accepted deposits for more than 16,000 season tickets and is on pace to potentially own the largest season ticket base in the league.

The sponsorship deal with Microsoft for its video-game system is to last five years at a reported $20 million. Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices Division, said the global scope of soccer, and the growth in the United States was key component in Microsoft's participation. The connection with a local sports franchise in its infancy, was important as well.

"It's the global sport, and all our employees, partners and customers are soccer fans it turns out when you go around the world," Bach said. "It's a great opportunity in a local way, to begin the process of connecting with that audience. And when you see what is happening with soccer in the United States, we know it's going to continue to grow and be a major sport. It's exciting to be in on the ground floor."

Microsoft will now join companies like Best Buy, Glidden and Herbalife paying to have their logos plastered across the chest of MLS team jerseys. Bach said proving that such a sponsorship is of value for the company and its employees was the biggest obstacle when past sponsorship proposals have popped up.

"Over five years, they're going to put a great product on the field, the league is going to continue to grow and we're going to look back and say it was absolutely the right step for us," Bach said.

Now the Sounders' challenge turns to filling out a roster that has only one signed player - Sebastian Le Toux, who plays for the Seattle Sounders in the United Soccer League. General manager Adrian Hanauer has made recruiting trips to South American, Europe and Africa in recent months. The ownership group is open to signing a designated player, but wants any big name the team signs to be part of the Seattle community.

"We've had numerous conversations with other players, agents, scouts. We have short lists put together of players around the world, from designated players all the way down to backup players," Hanauer said. "We haven't made any decisions yet ... but we're getting things pretty well organized and we have a good idea how we want to build the team."

The team unveiled its new primary jersey at the announcement at Qwest Field, and the rave green-with-blue-piping kit has the words "Xbox 360 Live," a leading Microsoft product, emblazoned on the front with the Sounders FC logo on the left shoulder.

Additionally, Xbox 360 will be the presenting sponsor of an annual Sounders FC international tour and will sponsor the playing surface at Qwest Field when the team begins play next year, to be called "The Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field."

Title: MLS to Add two new teams in 2011
Post by: Bakes on July 24, 2008, 07:40:22 PM
In addition to the new team in Seattle (2009) and Philadelphia (2010)... MLS is looking to add two more teams for the 2011 season:

"Expansion was a popular topic of discussion, particularly in Toronto where TFC's success has created speculation that other Canadian cities may be contenders for a new MLS club. Garber said that Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver are on a short list that also includes Atlanta, Las Vegas, Miami, Portland, St. Louis and possibly a second New York team.

Garber dismissed concerns that the MLS owners would be more apt to favor U.S. expansion teams than Canadian ones.

'I think that's a quintessentially Canadian way of thinking that Canadians won't be able to compete.' Garber joked. 'We don't have a market reacting quite the way we've experienced in Toronto; that's a pretty good leg up on many other cities.'

The commissioner said that the new Seattle team has already sold close to 16,000 season tickets in anticipation of their 2009 debut, and the Philadelphia club coming in 2010 have close to 5,000 season tickets sold. These two teams will raise the league's total to 16, and Garber said the short-term goal is add expansion clubs in two of the aforementioned group of contending cities and then re-evaluate the situation. He said he hoped to have more details on new teams by MLS Cup in November."

They better not sleep... I don't think the league would grant a franchise to a team that doesn't have a plan to move into a soccer-only stadium w/in a couple years.  The league has tried to piggy-back on the existing sporting infrastructure but they long ago realized thru efforts in Columbus, and much later Chicago and Houston... that soccer-only stadiums provide the degree of intimacy and the type of environment that generates passion among fans.  It's actually laid out right here which direction the league is movin in on this issue:

"Get all MLS teams playing in team-owned and operated soccer-only stadiums that are integrated into their communities: Garber said that by 2010, 12 of the league's 16 teams will be in soccer-specific stadiums, including Real Salt Lake's new home opening next season, New York in late 2009, Philadelphia in 2010 and new stadium projects underway in San Jose and Kansas City.

Could be sheer ignorance on my part Mose... maybe I'm not appreciating the level of support for and the appeal of the sport among the Qubcois, but to me there is more groundswell support for soccer in B.C. Vancouver is a hotbed of soccer activity in Canada, the sports' roots are well-entrenched there, and a team there would seem a perfect and natural rivalry for the expansion FC Seattle squad. I'm sure a similar argument can be made relative to a Montreal team and TFC... I just think that in terms of a primacy, Vancouver will come first... with Montreal being a logical target later on.

Of course, they also buss and get the stadium seized by the city, but they have a new owner with apparently deep pockets.
Might just be a function of market size and a sweet spot.

As for Miami, some places just don't do sports for whatever reason, too much other things to compete for your cash and time, too far to drive, the place hot like hell and you want man to sit outside....

I was real surprised when the Fusion folded back in the day. I don't know the area to say what people's tastes are like, but I'm thinking that Miami itself doesn't really have the type of crowd that would support a football team... them transplanted Cubans eh care about no football. I was thinking given the size of the WI community north of Miami, if they situated it closer to Ft. Lauderdale where man doh have to drive 45 mins to get to the stadium then it might have a shot. But then you have to turn around and market the team to the community with targeted advertisement, just as DC United did with all dem Central Americans in the DC Metro area. Outside ah dem you'd swear DC United never had ah chance, de way the team went after dem.

I hear you. However, Montreal is actually very well supported. I'd actually say it is probably one of the best supported teams in the USL, if not the best. Actually one of the reasons we have the new stadium is that the old one was regularly overcrowded. The support is there and the team has always had strong ties to the community.

Vancouver's problem might be, as Palos said, the lack of a stadium. Funding may also be an issue for both teams. Apparently it cost TFC $10mil to join MLS when they did. Not bad, but that fee is projected to rise to at least $40mil by the time Montreal and/or Vancouver are up. I understand the Montreal owners are looking for a partner. Vancouver unless I'm mistaken are having some funding difficulties.

Whatever happens though. I'd like to see all 3 teams in the MLS.

As far as I know, Vancouver has no funding issues. Jes dotish resident and politician issues.

As for crowd support, TFC first, then Montreal, then Vancouver. The only pro sport Vancouver truly cares about is hockey. Otherwise, save for a few pockets of die hards, everybody else too wrapped up in biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, camping, complaining, and huggin trees.

As I said, as far as pro sports and entertainment goes, it's a loser town.  NBA Basketball was doomed to fail from de time in dey inaugural season, dey select Bryant "Big Country" Reeves with the #1 pick in de draft & left town as soon as it could. 

They never had or could sustain a MLB team.

BC Lions have the same popularity as polo

And to top it off, the only pro team they care about SUCKS, has never won a Stanley Cup, and missed the playoffs this past season.

One advantage both Montreal and Vancouver have, are existing teams with rich histories:

The Whitecaps have been around for roughly 35 years, and are the oldest professional club in North America. They have a billionaire owner and now Steve Nash NBA MVP, (who has been a Whitecaps fan since he was 6 yrs old) is on board.
MLS have already approved their plans to move into a renovated BC Place. Back in the day of Empire Stadium, the Whitecaps used to draw crowds of over 20,000. They are former champions in the NASL, CSL and now USL First Division. They also beat TFC at BMO Field, and tied them in Vancouver, in Voyageurs Cup action. Not to mention beating the LA Galaxy in Edmonton in front of over 30,000.

The Montreal Impact just opened their new soccer specific stadium, Stade Saputo. It's a beautiful 13,000 seat stadium, and the pitch is said to rival anything in the world (unlike TFC's BMO Field, which has FieldTurf). Plans are already in place to expand to 20,000 seats. Montreal are former USL First Division champions, and seven time Voyageurs Cup winners, beating TFC at BMO Field this year to claim the Canadian championship. Montreal in USL regularly out draws MLS clubs. They are also owned by the Saputo family, which are worth billions and are the fifth richest Canadians.


Any new club (including Ottawa) starting from scratch can't touch any of this.

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2008112426_apsocsoundersfckeller.html

Seattle Sounders FC to make player announcement  

SEATTLE
The Seattle Sounders FC has scheduled a Thursday afternoon news conference to announce it will sign a major player - although the club won't say who. Published reports say goalkeeper Kasey Keller, part of four U.S. World Cup squads, will join the expansion Major League Soccer club.

Keller, 38, is from Lacey, about 60 miles south of Seattle. He would be the second player signed by the team. In May, the Sounders signed forward Sebastien LeToux.

Both the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and The Seattle Times report that Keller will sign with the Sounders, who begin play in MLS in 2009.

Keller has played 102 games for the U.S. national team. He played on the country's World Cup squad in 1990, 1998, 2002 and 2006.

He has played the bulk of his professional career in Europe.

Keller spent last season with Fulham in the English Premier League.

good to see... Keller is a close second to McBride as my favorite yank.  The man was just stellar between the post for so many years and a generation of American keepers have him to thank for their foreign careers.



Sando prince yuh eh lie... as enthusiastic about the league as I was back in '96 the quality on the field was abyssmal.  They ent exactly easy on the eyes yet... but talent-wise they've grown by leaps and bounds.

After seeing NE Revs lose to Joe Public  twice over the past week, i seriously have to question the quality of the MLS league

I hear the commentators make excuse after excuse about injuries, not focusing on the competition etc but Biotches Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

they never stood a chance vs our underpaid bunch of caribbean heros

its no wonder Scott Sealy is considered a boy wonder out there but when he returns home he dosent seem to show up for the games, not to be harsh on scott but would he make it in EPL or championship league 1 etc? i dont think so

My conclusion is drawn, W connection, Jaboleth, Joe Pub could box in the MLS any day

Recognize!!! Big up Joe Pub for representing!!!

ps: alot of the above is just pride speaking, not statistically drawn
and lots let not get emotional for the women out there

Mock,
          As much as I am delighted with JP's performance(it is the best by any T&T team, national or otherwise), I would not go so far as to say the MLS is boo. NE has injury and fatigue problems. They thought they  might be able to squeeze past JP. They may have taken JP  for granted before the first game last week, but that lost in Macoya burst their bubble. Overall the MLS is better that the PFL. The PFL can be a good league. but they need more financial support from the business community. But the most crucial support is FAN SUPPORT. That is sorely lacking.

I stand corrected now that my blood has cooled down from the win, its the excitment

from what i saw really NE didn't look like a side with energy, really tired, that being said i still didn't see any player who i wish to have on say my national side
its like no one from NE showed up for the game, clearly MLS could do with some talent,

I guess that is why becks is there just to add that little sparkle, cause as is apart from possible superior fitness, the league is somewhat dull, chivas tries to bring the mexican influence but more is needed to bring the US MLS to life maybe some saudi will buy a team and throw say like 1 billion behind players lol

U still think we do have local and regional talent that can box with the best of em in MLS any day

I think if PFL teams used to get a few thousand supporters every week and better coaches  it woulda be very exciting and we would have seen some even better players and teams coming out of the league. Intercol football has been so exciting over the years because of the support. Imagine if PFL teams got good coaches and good support. Trinidad football would have been leaps and bounds from where it is right now....and teams would have been playing good attractive 'trini' football...Go T&T !!!

Mock and Ponnox, I ain't trying to rain on the  parade. I am one proud Trini ball jumbie tonight. And I am not a JW fan.

If the top four or five teams get decent financial support so that they can give the players some monetary incentive, I am sure we can compete with MLS. Right now we not as consistent. We win on this year, lose the next two years and then come back and win the4th year. That to inconsistent. If JP can perform like that again next year, then there is real hope. But the Socawarriors.net forum should organize for the two games to be place in the archives. I would buy if the are for sale.

Going back to the commentators. All those american commentators are crap except for the couple that do champions league on espn and the few from FSC and Gol tv. Those former UMNT players turned analysts are really hurting the sport, with their lackluster broadcasting skills and clearly biased stance. Especially during the world cup. It is really hurting the image of football in America atleast for those who are already fans.

Haahahah ent!

Flawed logic based on two games. So Houston beat Pachuca so the MLS is better or equal to the Mexican League?
EPL Teams have lost to MLS teams so, the MLS equal to EPL?
Joe Public won their game and that is a great result for them. Now they move on and let us wish them well.
The true test will be how they progress in the league

Sounders FC Opener Set for March 19 on ESPN2

http://www.soundersfc.com/article.aspx?id=2628

RENTON, WASH. The inaugural Seattle Sounders FC game will be featured as Major League Soccers opening date for the 2009 season, it was announced today. Sounders FC will host the New York Red Bulls on Thursday night, March 19, in a match nationally televised by ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.

Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. Pacific Time at Qwest Field. Sounders FC will be making its debut as the 15th team in MLS. New York is the 2008 MLS Cup runner-up.

By being selected for the first match of the 2009 MLS season, this presents an opportunity to show a national audience what all the excitement is about in Seattle, said Sounders FC majority owner Joe Roth. Our supporters will be in full voice and, along with our players, wearing green. It promises to be quite a spectacle.

The balance of the First Kick (MLS Opening Weekend) schedule features five matches on March 21 and another on March 22.

It was also announced that Seattle will be the guest for the Toronto FC home opener April 4. That match is scheduled for a 12 noon Pacific kickoff.

The complete MLS schedule will be released in early February. Each team will play a 30-game regular season. Each team will play every other MLS team home and away, for a base of 28 games. Two additional games against intra-conference rivals will complete each teams league schedule. The regular season ends on Oct. 25.

Since the franchise was awarded in November of 2007, over 18,000 season tickets have been purchased. Over 14,500 votes were cast in naming the team and results will be announced later this week regarding the recently concluded votes for naming both the marching band and members association.

Season tickets are available by calling 1-877-MLS-GOAL or by visiting www.SoundersFC.com.

The Sounders FC kit, including home and away uniforms, will be unveiled Thursday, Dec. 4, during a fashion show which will raise funds for the Seattle Childrens Hospital Research Institute and the Quest for the Cure. Guild

Sounders FC added 10 players to the roster following the Nov. 26 expansion draft. Altogether, there are now 14 Seattle players, including midfielder Freddie Ljungberg and goalkeeper Kasey Keller. Both played for English Premier League clubs during the 2007-08 season.

Sounders FC Make Zakuani Top Pick

(http://www.soundersfc.com/uploadedImages/Home/Articles/090115zakuani640.jpg)

RENTON, WASH. The Seattle Sounders FC selected University of Akron forward and Generation adidas member Steve Zakuani with the first overall selection in Thursdays Major League Soccer SuperDraft.

Steve has all the tools, a great pedigree, and grew up in the Arsenal youth system, said Sounders FC Owner and General Manager Adrian Hanauer. He had a very good college career and we think has the potential to be very explosive and a very exciting player. He is also a very good young man.

Zakuani, who was born in the Congo but raised in England, led the nation in scoring with 20 goals and seven assists in 23 games in 2008, while being named Soccer Americas Player of the Year. Zakuani was also a finalist for the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy, awarded to the top collegiate soccer player. Before coming to the U.S., Zakuani, 20, played with the Arsenals youth teams of the English Premier League from 1997 to 2003.

I heard a few things a couple of weeks ago, but up until the last second, I had no idea, Zakuani said of being the No. 1 pick. It's a great honor, and I'm so excited. I'm ready. I'm going to go in there, train hard, catch up to the level of play and hopefully contribute right away.

With the first pick in the second round (16th overall), the Sounders FC selected Wake Forest University defender Evan Brown. A top defender in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Brown contributed to 14 shutouts in 2008 and 15 in 2007, a single-season shutout record en route to the NCAA College Cup title. His 89 games played ranks as the sixth-most all-time at Wake Forest.

Azusa Pacific University defender Jared Karkas was chosen with the first pick in the third round (31st overall). A 22 year-old native of Upland, Calif., Karkas was an NAIA first-team All-American. He started all 22 contests during Azusa Pacifics 2007 NAIA title run, anchoring a defense that posted program single-season records of 14 shutouts and a 0.49 goals-against average.

Seattles final selection in the fourth round (46th overall) was Harvard midfielder/forward Michael Fucito. An All-Ivy League first-team and Academic All-Ivy League selection as a junior and senior, Fucito compiled 20 goals and 12 assists in his final two seasons for the Crimson.

All SuperDraft selections are expected to report to Seattle later this month for preseason training. The Sounders FC begin its inaugural MLS season by hosting the Red Bull New York Red Bull at Qwest Field on March 19. Season tickets are available by calling the Sounders FC at 877-MLS-GOAL or online at www.soundersfc.com.

Sounders FC to Host Chelsea on July 18

http://www.soundersfc.com/News/Articles/2009/02-February/Chelsea-Announcement.aspx

(http://www.soundersfc.com/~/media/83C12962179B4583A3F182CA96DBBB08.ashx?w=591&h=440)

Blues make first visit to Seattle since winning Premier League titles.

RENTON , Wash. - Seattle Sounders FC will host Chelsea FC, winners of five major English titles in the past five seasons, Saturday, July 18, at Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field, it was announced today. Kickoff is set for 12 noon pacific time and the match will be televised live on ESPN2.

This will be unlike any international game ever played in the Pacific Northwest, said Sounders FC majority owner Joe Roth. Chelsea is one of the top clubs in the world, and they are playing the home team, our Sounders FC, backed by our loyal supporters. The atmosphere that afternoon will be incredible.

The match is part of the Sounders FC full 18-game season ticket package. To date, the club has sold 19,800 season tickets. Seattle opens its first Major League Soccer season at home on March 19 against the New York Red Bulls.

We are delighted to be opening our preseason preparations in Seattle, said Peter Kenyon, the Chief Executive of Chelsea FC. It is a fantastic city and we have great memories of our time there in the summer of 2004 which went on to be a great season for us. The Sounders FC will provide us with a real test and we are happy that a sporting city like Seattle now has its own new soccer franchise as it is important for the development of the game in the United States. We will be bringing a full strength squad so it should be a great game."

Chelsea features a star-studded lineup led by captain and defender John Terry and midfielder Frank Lampard-both members of the English National Team-and other accomplished internationals such as Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack and Deco.

In anticipation of the demand for tickets, seating at Qwest Field will be expanded to include the upper bowl for the Chelsea game.

Chelsea will be making its first trip to Seattle since the London club certified its standing as one of the worlds powers by winning back-to-back Premier League championships in 2004-05 and 2005-06.

The Blues finished second in the EPL the past two seasons and in 2008 they were runners-up in Europes most prestigious competition, the UEFA Champions League. The recent run of success also includes an FA Cup (2007) and two Carling Cups (2005, 2007).

This marks Chelseas fourth visit to Seattle and second to Qwest Field. In 2004 the Blues defeated Scotlands Celtic, 4-2. The original North American Soccer League Sounders won a friendly, 2-0, at the Kingdome in 1977. Chelsea first toured in 1967, defeating a local amateur side, 5-0, at Memorial Stadium.

An on-sale date to purchase tickets exclusively for the Chelsea match will be announced later this spring.  Season ticket memberships that include the Chelsea match are available by phone at 1-877-MLS-GOAL or online at www.SoundersFC.com.

It's official: Whitecaps joining MLS in 2011
 
By Ian Walker, Vancouver SunMarch 18, 2009

(http://a123.g.akamai.net/f/123/12465/1d/www.vancouversun.com/1402788.bin)
It's a good news Wednesday for Vancouver Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi, as he talks about the franchise joining Major League Soccer (MLS) for the 2011 season.

The Vancouver Whitecaps will join Major League Soccer for the 2011 season, it was confirmed today, in what may be the worst-kept secret in Lower Mainland sports circles.

MLS commissioner Don Garber made the announcement at a posh and packed press conference at the Westin Bayshore. Garber praised the team's ownership group for convincing MLS that Vancouver was a viable market for its 17th franchise.

"It's a very passionate soccer market and an ownership group that gets the game," said Garber. "Our goal is to become one of the world's best soccer leagues. The addition of Vancouver will help us get to that point."

Current Whitecaps owner Greg Kerfoot is heading the Vancouver ownership group. Joining him are NBA star Steve Nash, San Francisco Giants co-owner Jeff Mallett and Boston Celtics co-owner Steve Luczo. The group paid US$35 million for the franchise, down from the $40 million price tag MLS was originally asking, but more than the $30 million the Seattle Sounders paid two years ago. Seattle makes its MLS debut on Thursday in the league's opener agianst the New York Red Bulls at Qwest Field.

Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi cautioned there is a chance the team name could change once it joins MLS, but not if he gets his way.

"The Whitecaps name has a lot of equity," said Lenarduzzi. "There is a lot of things we need to make decisions on. There may be people out there that think it may need to be something other than that."

Vancouver will have the second MLS team in Canada following the successful launch of Toronto FC in 2007. Toronto FC has sold out every home game, capped season tickets at 16,000, and has a season-ticket waiting list of over 14,000.

The Vancouver expansion team will play at a renovated BC Place Stadium., which is set to undergo $365 million worth of improvements, including a retractable roof.

Kerfoot is the owner of Vancouver Whitecaps FC and former CEO of Crystal Decisions Software. Luczo is president, CEO, and chairman of the board for Seagate Technology and part owner of the NBA's Boston Celtics. Mallett is part owner of Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants and is the former president and COO of Yahoo! Nash a guard for the NBAs Phoenix Suns is a two-time NBA MVP, and along with Mallett, is an investor in women's professional soccer.

(http://www.soundersfc.com/~/media/345CEB994E3C414CA9FF24D458419ED5.ashx?w=591&h=394)

FC Barcelona, one of the worlds most popular and successful clubs will return to the United States this summer to take on the Seattle Sounders on Wednesday, August 5 at Qwest Field in Seattle (7:30 p.m. PT).
Rumors started kicking around the internet last April that the Sounders FC was seeking to bring Thierry Henry to Seattle. It was announced Friday that it may become a reality, as Henrys FC Barcelona club will come to Seattle August 5 to face the Sounders FC at Qwest Field.

I know there were a lot of rumors out there, so I guess in some ways some of them are true, owner/GM Adrian Hanauer said.

On the heels of their victory over Chelsea to advance to the Champions League final against Manchester United on May 27 in Rome, Barca joined with the Sounders to make the announcement this morning.

For soccer fans, the friendly will provide another opportunity to see some of the top players in the world. Along with Henry, Barca features such stars as two-time runner up for FIFA Player of the Year Lionel Messi, Cameroon striker Samuel Etoo and 2008 FIFA Player of the Year finalist Xavi, among others.

As a fan, Im beside myself to have a chance to see those teams and measure our team to see where we are on the world stage, Hanauer said. We also wanted to make sure we gave value to our season ticket holders and that we rewarded their belief in us. Its a hard economic time and that makes it hard to commit to the team the way they have. This is our way to say thanks to those fans.

With Chelsea already on the schedule July 17 at Qwest Field, Hanauer looked at Wednesdays Champions League semifinal a bit differently.

It was exciting. You watch it a little bit differently knowing that those players will be here, Hanauer said. Then you start thinking about the players we have to match up with those are some of the best players in the world.

The August 5 game is added to a growing list of marquee games at Qwest Field this year. In addition to the Sounders FC friendly against Chelsea in July, the US National Team will face Grenada in the CONCACAF Gold Cup July 4 and Seattle will host the 2009 MLS Cup in November.

Bara is in the midst of one of their best campaigns in recent history, and in position to win all three of their major tournaments: Spains La Liga, UEFA Champions League and Copa del Rey.

After a season in which weve played great soccer and based on our unforgettable experiences in past tours, we at FC Barcelona are excited to take our great players and performances to our fans in the United States once again, said FC Barcelona President Joan Laporta. Together with MLS and SUM, we look forward to great competition from the Galaxy and Sounders, and leaving our mark on the West Coast of the U.S.

Seattle looking niiiiiiiiiice!


Nice attackng football... very attractive in fact.  Great facility... not sure how the other games are, but this is a nice turnout to see LA.  Field not pristine, but decent by MLS standards.  Ah couda do without de confetti on de pitch doh.  Keller looking boss... Freddy playing nice ball... Jaqua is a real nice pick up... I think Riley will be quite a steal too, man playing real lively in defense and supporting de attack well.  More I see of this team the more I like.


And de uniform is boss... easily the nicest kit in MLS  :beermug:

Sounders FC wins U.S. Open Cup

Roger Levesque, Fredy Montero score goals in Seattle's 2-1 victory over D.C. United

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/sounders/2009795563_sounders03.html

By Jos Miguel Romero

Seattle Times staff reporter



WASHINGTON Robert F. Kennedy Stadium, as the sign hanging from a wall in the lower level read, is a place where eagles dare. Wednesday night, it was also the place where Sounders FC won its first trophy.

The first-year Major League Soccer club stunned the home side, D.C. United, 2-1, in the U.S. Open Cup final, giving Seattle a major soccer tournament championship in its first season in existence. Seldom-used forward Roger Levesque scored the goal that eventually made the difference in the 86th minute, putting in cross from teammate Sebastien Le Toux.

Fredy Montero, Sounders FC's leading scorer, though often panned by fans, achieved hero status when he knocked in a deflection for a goal in the 67th minute for a 1-0 Sounders FC lead. Levesque's goal made it 2-0, and goalkeeper Kasey Keller rescued his team with key saves in the closing minutes after a D.C. goal by Clyde Simms.

After the final whistle, Sounders FC players charged onto the field and embraced, then ran to a corner where fans were seated and acknowledged them.

Seattle became the first MLS expansion team to win the U.S. Open Cup, the annual club championship of America, since the Chicago Fire in 1998. But it took persistence, and a red card to D.C. goalkeeper Josh Wicks in the second half that had United playing with 10 men.

Missed quality chances, which have plagued Sounders FC, were a factor once again. But D.C. United also failed to capitalize on good shots, and Sounders FC did well to keep up an attack and not be on its collective heels much in the first half.

Montero was involved right away. His direct shot off a cross from Steve Zakuani in the 10th minute was batted away by Wicks, who thwarted the Rave Green numerous times.

In the 19th minute, Wicks deflected midfielder Freddie Ljungberg's shot, after Le Toux had fed Ljungberg with cross to the middle. The 35th minute saw Montero try a header on a pass from Leo Gonzalez, but it went over the goal.

The best chance for Seattle in the half, though, came about a minute before halftime. Le Toux, playing well in place of normal starter Nate Jaqua, fed Montero for a header that Wicks somehow deflected.

Wicks had four first-half saves. Keller wasn't called upon much for saves in the first half, but D.C.'s off-target shooting kept the game scoreless for the first 45 minutes.

One could only Imagine that Montero say something about Wicks sister.
Because, that is as much as I would concede as a reason fir that rediculous stamp and red card.

Not sure how they could say that Seattle "stun" DC... how can you stun a team playing with 10 men?

As for the card, Wicks is a cunny... that was the first thing grab my attention after the ball hit the back of the net.  I was like "wait, what he juss do there??".  I was surprised the ref didn't spot it or more Seattle players didn't rush him.  That was bush league.

I would not say "stun" but you must admit Seattle looked the better team all night, especially in the first half, just was not putting away chances. DC only went to ten men after conceding the 1st goal, which damper a pretty good night for Wicks....i guess he was Stunned by the goal and had a dotish moment. Apart from that he "saved" DC all night. Remember also, Seattle was on the road and a rookie team, DC I think were the defending US Open champs.

I definitely wouldn't say that Seattle were the better team all night... Keller had to dig deep into his past to pull off a couple saves himself.  Seattle started hot but DC eventually settled into the game, in fact I'd say it was 50-50, anyone's game until the goal was scored.  All that other stuff about Seattle being on the road and DC being defending champs eh really swaying me.  This is MLS, teams don't really enjoy much of a home field advantage in this league, certainly not playing before a half-full stadium as DC was at RFK tonight.  As for defending Cup champions... yeah, but they've been middling all year.

I'm not taking anything away from Seattle... nice team, great way to start your initial campaign with a trophy.  I'm just not buying this big upset that the headline writer is trying to sell.  Expansion team or not all you have to do is look at their records:

DC       7 wins, 5 losses, 11 ties

Seattle 8 wins, 8 losses, 10 ties

Pretty even record I'd say.

His full name is Tupac Amaru Shakur- named after Don Tupac Amaru who was a Peruvian civil rights activist/revolutionary who was executed after attempting a native indian uprising against the Spanish colonists....Tupac Amaru himself adopted the amerindian name over the spanish name he was given at birth.

2Pac is just a creative variation used as a stage name.

Two-boys may have equal significance...until we know what that significance is- it's kinda funny..admit it.

Sounders FC Announce Two International Friendlies  

http://www.soundersfc.com/News/Articles/2010/04-April/Sounders-to-host-Boca-Juniors-and-Celtic.aspx

Jai you coming for the Boca Game?  ;D

(http://www.soundersfc.com/~/media/19A7725C19814500B677F90678E6BE78.ashx?w=591&h=340)

The Sounders will host Boca Juniors on May May 26th and Celtic on July 18th
RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Sounders FC announced today they will host Argentina's Boca Juniors, on May 26 and Scotland's Celtic on July 18 on the Xbox Pitch at Qwest Field.
 
"We promised our fans a diverse flavor of international soccer and are thrilled to bring Boca and Celtic to the Pacific Northwest," said Sounders FC Owner and General Manager Adrian Hanauer.  "These two storied clubs have secured their place as elite franchises during the last century."

The two friendlies are part of the 18-match season-ticket holder package. A third match will be announced soon. Tickets will go on sale for Boca Juniors on Monday, May 3 at 10 a.m. Tickets will go on sale for Celtic on Tuesday, June 1 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at www.soundersfc.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, the Qwest Field Box Office, or by calling
800-745-3000.
 
Boca Juniors is Argentina's most popular club, as well as the most successful on the international front, with three world club championships and six Copa Libertadores (South America titles). Boca, founded in 1905 and named for the Buenos Aires neighborhood of La Boca, wears a distinctive all blue strip with a yellow panel across the chest. Among its famous players is Diego Maradona, the co-player of the 20th century who retired there in 1997. Boca is the first Argentine club to play in Seattle and the first South American club to visit since 1983.

(http://www.soundersfc.com/News/Articles/2010/04-April/~/media/82EB0CDE1D9E43C482D1C7695A4BFD86.ashx?w=250&h=400&as=1)

Celtic is making its fourth trip to Seattle and its third to Qwest Field. Winners of a record 34 Scottish cups and 42 league championships, the "Bhoys" from Glasgow boast a huge worldwide fan base. They are instantly recognizable for their green-and-white hooped jerseys. Celtic was the first British club to win a European championship in 1967. It met the NASL Sounders in 1981, and returned to face Manchester United in 2003 and Chelsea in 2004.

It's Official
http://www.mlssoccer.com/news/article/commentary-dero-ny-finally-get-their-no-10
The New York Red Bulls finally got their No. 10.

New York GM Eric Solr had been saying for months that the club had been pursuing a playmaker, and in Dwayne De Rosario, thats exactly what RBNY get. Now in his 11th year in MLS, the 32-year-old De Rosario has 74 goals and 52 assists in the regular season, most of them coming from the hole just behind a pair of strikers.

Thats an area RBNY manager Hans Backe has wanted filled since his arrival. The design is to play a 4-4-2 midfield diamond similar to Real Salt Lake. In DeRo, the Red Bulls now have someone who can approximate the play of Javier Morales and take some of the creative burden off of Thierry Henry and Dane Richards.

Theyve also gotten older and sacrificed a good chunk of depth. And for all of Backes talk about the Supporters Shield, this trade doesnt help New York in that regard as De Rosario is likely to be gone for a good portion of the season representing Canada at the Gold Cup.

Instead, this is all about the need to win MLS Cup. DeRo has four of those to his name; the rest of the RBNY roster, combined, has three.

On the Toronto FC side of the ledger, this trade is about two things: improving the defense immediately, and improving their long-term prospects as a club.

Tony Tchani is the big catch here. The big central midfielder struggled for a few months coming out of college, but he flicked a switch sometime around June of 2010 and, through the summer, was one of the best players in New York.

He showed toughness and poise on the ball, a decent passing eye and willingness to combine. Defensively, he worked hard and by sheer virtue of physical stature and his ability to cover ground, he made himself an asset.

Tchani, who turns 22 in less than two weeks, is still raw, but it seems certain that TFC manager Aron Winter will start him immediately in the middle of the Reds 4-3-3. That gives the Dutchman another young, gifted central midfielder he can mold tactically for the long haul, and more cover for the leaky defense in the short-term.

Defense is where Danleigh Borman, whos been with the Red Bulls since 2008, will find himself. A natural left-footed player, Borman is still learning how to play left back. Hes had some highs particularly in a few good US Open Cup outings early last year and some lows. But in either case, he represents an upgrade for TFC.

Borman, who is 26, is small but pacy, and an able crosser who likes to push into the attack with overlapping runs. Hell certainly get his chances there, as the ability to generate attacks from the fullback spot are an essential ingredient of Winters 4-3-3.

The final piece of the puzzle is a 2012 RBNY first round SuperDraft pick, likely to be somewhere in the teens. Obviously any draft pick is hit-or-miss, but TFC fans can be content seeing that their manager is planning for the future in a way the club has mostly failed to do through their first four years of existence.

On Thursday night Philly played LA, Birchall and Daniel started.
Birchall had a real nice 1-2 and a shot but the keeper saved well.

Is what you able to negotiate, plus Sealy have tenure in de league. It's not about who starting and who on bench. Daniel have 46 national senior team caps, 8 goals, World Cup Qualifying experience, and 5 years playing pro ball. Holder only has national youth experience, and he jes graduate from college, but he and Keon making de same amount.

Not all of the foreign sides are selling out stadiums like a United, Barca, Real. Also as much as the MLS may have improved the football I find it more  enjoyable to watch when,  it involves two sides play,who may be equal in talent or close to it.

      I agree and understand what you are saying but if you want to improve or measure your ability this is the opportunity to do,we see enough Barca play United etc etc all the time.Could you imagine these teams coming to T&T and eh play us,how would we feel.

Fagundez shines for Revs, tallies in first MLS match

Despite his tender age and his lack of experience, New England forward Diego Fagundez said only one thing went through his mind as he stood at the halfway line and prepared to enter his first MLS match.

The first thing I thought was that I needed to try to help the team score a goal, Fagundez told MLSsoccer.com after the Revolution's 3-2 loss to Chivas USA on Saturday. And I did.

It took the 16-year-old Home Grown player about two minutes to accomplish his objective. Fagundez embarked on a darting run at the edge of the penalty area and tempted Chivas USA defender Heath Pearce a seasoned defender who has logged plenty of games at the international level and in the European game to haul him down for a penalty kick.

Keane heading to Galaxy.
ESPNsoccernet staff


Tottenham striker Robbie Keane is closing on a move to MLS side LA Galaxy, according to reports.

Keane is unwanted by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp and said last week that he expected to tie up a move before the end of the transfer window.

The Irish international played in a friendly on Wednesday night against Croatia in Dublin, but is believed to be flying to LA to sign a contract worth a reported $9 million over next two years.

Keane was linked with a transfer to the MLS 18 months ago, with wife Claudine quoted as saying: "Would I like to see him play for a team like LA Galaxy? Yes, I would love that, but it changes all the time."

The striker's departure would open up room for a loan move for former Arsenal frontman Emmanuel Adebayor, who has also been told that he has no future at Manchester City.

Spurs striker Robbie Keane joins MLS side LA Galaxy

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/14525931.stm

Tottenham striker Robbie Keane has joined Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy for an undisclosed fee.

Keane, 31, who had also been linked with Leicester City, said he was "honoured, delighted and very excited" to be joining the American side.

Details of the transfer fee and length of contract have not been announced, but it is reported to be a 3.5m deal.

"I have always wanted to come and play in MLS so it's the perfect combination for me and a dream come true," he said.


Keane made 254 appearances for Spurs during his first spell at the club between 2002 and 2008, scoring 107 goals.

He moved to Liverpool in July 2008 but spent only six months at Anfield before returning to White Hart Lane.

However he failed to hold down a regular first-team place, amid competition from Jermain Defoe, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Rafael van der Vaart and Peter Crouch.

Galaxy general manager and head coach Bruce Arena said: "Robbie Keane will be a great addition to our club.

"I have followed his career and have always respected his ability as a competitor and a goalscorer."

A statement on the Spurs website said: "The club can announce that it has reached agreement with Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy for the permanent transfer of Robbie Keane.

"We wish him all the best for the future."

The striker has scored 51 goals in 108 games for Ireland and 123 in 306 games in all competitions during his two spells at Spurs.

He started out at Wolverhampton Wanderers before joining Coventry City in 1999 for a then British record fee for a teenager.

Twelve goals in 34 games earned a shock move to Inter Milan where he spent 18 months before joining Leeds United.

Hardly.

There was/is a perception that certain players wouldn't consent to playing in the MLS. The comment was not influenced by a price tag, be it exorbitant or a steal. I'm not placed to make that call. The comment was influenced by the value added to the team and league with respect to the intangible value/benefits that deals such as these bring to the MLS.

The article refers to an "undisclosed fee"? How do you know whether he has been compensated to excess? Regardless, the parties are free to arrive at any amount they deem mutually satisficing, regardless of what parties external to the agreement think.

Over time, deals such as these will facilitate further inroads by the MLS.

This is the first time an MLS club has paid a transfer fee for a foreign player, and as such it is a dangerous precedent that has been set as far as the lesser established, less wealthy MLS clubs.  European clubs can now reasonably be expcted to demand transfer fees for future players and that inevitably will lead to higher costs to MLS clubs.

In light of the foregoing, and in light of the fact that we are talking about a "perception"... LA Galaxy paying the first ever transfer fee for a foreign player, and one clearly past his prime at that, certainly puts paid to my comment as I see it.

Fans look: Columbus Crews best value players of 2011
By Christopher Cantwell, Yahoo! Contributor Network
Sources: MLSSoccer.com, TheCrew.com, MLSPlayers.org.


In a tight salary cap league, it is always important for Major League Soccer teams to find some great players at an even better value. The Columbus Crew have been no exception in 2011, getting big contributions from players nowhere near the top of the team's payroll.

Here is a look at who I feel are the Crew's best values of 2011:

5. Josh Gardner - $49,200 - Gardner has been pretty consistent in the midfield throughout 2011 for the Crew. When called upon, he has logged big minutes and started 19 times for the Crew. Since playing for the Galaxy a few years back, Gardner played in the U.S. lower divisions and most recently with the Carolina Railhawks. The Crew were able to pick him as a bargain for the 2011 campaign.

4. Tommy Heinemann - $42,000 - Heinemann has been used more in a substitute role for the Crew, but still has started 12 times while notching three goals and one assist in his first MLS season. Like Gardner, Heinemann was picked up from the lower divisions after a great 2010 with the Charleston Battery. With three goals and one of the lowest salaries on the team, Heinemann is easily one of the best values in the cost-per-goal category.

3. Julius James - $72,169 - James, picked up after D.C. United let him go, has been a huge part of the Crew's backline and has played and started in 29 matches so far in 2011. James play in 2011 has began to make him a regular call-up to his native Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors.

2. Robbie Rogers - $140,000 - Rogers' salary barely cracks the top 10 on the Crew, yet he is a U.S. international and has recorded a team-high seven assists so far in 2011. Rogers is at the end of his contract, and the Crew will likely have to pay much more in 2012 to keep him around in Columbus. His play has put him back in the USMNT picture under head coach Jrgen Klinsmann. Rogers has also added two goals during the campaign. At the beginning of the season, Rogers seemed to possibly be out of the Crew picture. But in 2011, he has been a huge part of that picture.

1. Sebastian Miranda - $115,000 - Miranda has been great and has helped replace long-term pieces of the Crew defense during the offseason. He is the only Crew player to start and play all 32 games so far in 2011, while logging over 2,800 minutes. He has also added two assists.

In a tight salary cap league, it is always important for Major League Soccer teams to find some great players at an even better value. The Columbus Crew have been no exception in 2011, getting big contributions from players nowhere near the top of the team's payroll.

Here is a look at who I feel are the Crew's best values of 2011:

5. Josh Gardner - $49,200 - Gardner has been pretty consistent in the midfield throughout 2011 for the Crew. When called upon, he has logged big minutes and started 19 times for the Crew. Since playing for the Galaxy a few years back, Gardner played in the U.S. lower divisions and most recently with the Carolina Railhawks. The Crew were able to pick him as a bargain for the 2011 campaign.

4. Tommy Heinemann - $42,000 - Heinemann has been used more in a substitute role for the Crew, but still has started 12 times while notching three goals and one assist in his first MLS season. Like Gardner, Heinemann was picked up from the lower divisions after a great 2010 with the Charleston Battery. With three goals and one of the lowest salaries on the team, Heinemann is easily one of the best values in the cost-per-goal category.

3. Julius James - $72,169 - James, picked up after D.C. United let him go, has been a huge part of the Crew's backline and has played and started in 29 matches so far in 2011. James play in 2011 has began to make him a regular call-up to his native Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors.

2. Robbie Rogers - $140,000 - Rogers' salary barely cracks the top 10 on the Crew, yet he is a U.S. international and has recorded a team-high seven assists so far in 2011. Rogers is at the end of his contract, and the Crew will likely have to pay much more in 2012 to keep him around in Columbus. His play has put him back in the USMNT picture under head coach Jrgen Klinsmann. Rogers has also added two goals during the campaign. At the beginning of the season, Rogers seemed to possibly be out of the Crew picture. But in 2011, he has been a huge part of that picture.

1. Sebastian Miranda - $115,000 - Miranda has been great and has helped replace long-term pieces of the Crew defense during the offseason. He is the only Crew player to start and play all 32 games so far in 2011, while logging over 2,800 minutes. He has also added two assists.


Tallman, you hear Mauro Rosales making 42 grand??? I don't know how d frig Seattle get a man like he on that salary.

Galaxy Notebook: Birchall could replace Juninho

CARSON, Calif. Throughout the year, LA Galaxy midfielder Juninho has been one of the club's most consistent players. The second-year loanee from Sao Paulo made major strides since his first season and is a key player on both sides of the ball.

Juninho, though, will play no role in Thursday's return leg against New York (11 pm ET, ESPN2/TSN2), but Galaxy coaches have some experience to turn to on the bench.

Chris Birchall has played at the highest level before World Cup, World Cup qualifying, MLS Cup playoffs. The Trinidad and Tobago international hopes to add Thursday's match to his rsum.

"With the center midfielder we're losing in Juninho, there's only a couple of choices," Birchall told reporters at training on Tuesday. "I haven't been told for definite if it's going to be the case. I'm obviously hoping so because it would be a nice game to step into, but anyone who steps in is going to do a great job because that's the kind of squad we've got."

Birchall appeared in 23 matches this season, a year after logging 25 in helping the Galaxy win the first of two consecutive Supporters' Shield titles. In 2011, Birchall has been part of the rotation at midfield, appearing at times on the right flank in addition to the middle. Against the Red Bulls, Birchall will look to make it tough on opposing attackers who will certainly come into the Home Depot Center with one objective.

"All out attack, really," he said. "They have nothing to lose. They have to win the game. I'm sure that will be the emphasis. With the players they've got, the pace they've got they can do that to anyone on any given day. Hopefully that's not going to be us."

I saw Birchall as well and he looked good in the Def Mid role. When it comes to the national team tho I think Hyland is the better in that role. Our mid field is a strong point for once.
Title: Re: List of Trinidad and Tobago MLS players.
Post by: Jayerson on November 04, 2011, 08:09:01 AM
He had a good game for the role he played. Did the usual stuff, track players, close the passing lanes, made himself available for the pass. His passing and composure on the ball has improved. He had an excellent long range shot in the first half that the keeper could not hold and Robbie Keane had a great chance to score from the rebound but the keeper saved the rebound.

Depending on the formation being employed, there's room for both Birchall and Hyland. For a game of this importance because of the position we're in Birchall needs to be there, he's been there, done that, two world cup campaigns and a WC under his belt.

i for one believe that both should play especially if we are playing against stronger opposition to help protect the back line. Our creative attacking avenues should come from the wings on both sides with the two strikers. In either event both central midfielders are capable of joining the attack if required.

could never get people's fascination with 4-4-2 as it relates to TT, just never feels like a good fit for us..........to me anyways :P and lends it self to easily to "boom kick" ball, I think we generally look better in 4-3-3 variants, I know its still inconclusive and different personnel and may yield differing results, but 4-3-3 is working..... I would go 4-2-1-3 and have hyland and birchall sitting behind hector

then withdraw birchall or hyland for Tinto if yuh find yuhself needing more attacking thrust in d late stages

Nah man.....4-3-3 will quicker give yuh that voom kick than 4-4-2. Our players are not technical and and fit enough to play that 4-3-3. Even if we did a 4-2-1-3, I don't see us having the player right now to play in that attacking mid position. I talking about a real tactical genius, not ah fella who could make some passes. Also we don't have that up and back winger or wing back for that matter. Carlos, some might say, but that's about it. It is a struggle to get our wingers to track back over the course of 90 minutes. Factor in the inconsistencies of our CB and we can be in real problem. In the 4-3-3 your back 4 must be good at defending in 3s (at the International level they have to be great).

The 4-4-2 is best suited to us right now I believe. It naturally give proper balance across the field. Our winger can attack as they like knowing they have cover, Wingbacks can go further up the field, overlapping wingers leaving the winger to cover, or the many variants that can happen on the wing in the chains on the side. Also with KJ as our major target we will have a great option for cross balls in 1v2 situations in the box. Therefore, it will not always be necessary to get that extra players all the way forward to assist on crosses coming in the box. The wingers can pinch in to the middle to help out the central players if under pressure, etc.

and yet we were largely ineffective in 4-4-2 for first half of d b'dos game ..........like I said different personnel may yield different results, we could maybe play 4-4-2 the same way we looked in d second half with a "holder" and "runner" but the 4-3-3 experiments have looked much more promising thus far....JMO

The Philadelphia Union have signed defender Sheanon Williams to a new contract, the club announced on Wednesday.

The 21-year old, originally signed on Aug. 31, 2010 from the Harrisburg City Islanders, has emerged as one of the top right backs in Major League Soccer. Since taking over as Philadelphia's starting right back less than two weeks after signing, Williams has started all 40 games in which he has appeared, scoring a goal and adding three assists.

His parents were born in T&T so he is eligible to play for us, but at this time he is committed to the US. He has played for the US at the U-17, U-20 and now U-23 level.

That was his second yellow and he should have been sent off promptly at that point - even though it was less than a minute left. The ref lost control right at the end there and didn't realize.
Was awesome to be there. Full capacity 50,000. T-38 fly over at the start. Fireworks display at the end. Little fourth of July thing going on. That free kick was nice, but the next two LA goals were gifts by total defensive lapses. Luckily the Quakes pulled it out. 7 goals in all. Was a fun game.

Ronaldo: I hope to play in MLS
By ESPN staff


Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo claims that he would like to follow David Beckham and play in Major League Soccer before the end of his career.

Ronaldo, 27, is the world's most expensive player after an 80 million move to Madrid from Manchester United in 2009. The former World Player of the Year was in blistering form last season and netted 69 goals in 61 games for his club.

And while there is no suggestion that Ronaldo is thinking of leaving the Bernabeu at any point soon, the Portuguese would like to head to America in the future.

"I think they do it well," Ronaldo told the MLS website when asked for his thoughts on the league. "To come here and do the preseason, for me it's great, because this county is brilliant - the mentality of the people, the conditions.

"(They) are in the right place. I think the soccer here, they do it the best (they) can, but it can be better. So if I can help there to be better soccer here - I they're great, they are in a good way, and I hope to come here to play one day."

Red Bulls youth coach slashed to death (http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/1184845/red-bulls-youth-coach-slashed-to-death-in-nyc?cc=5901)
October 8, 2012
 
 
NEW YORK -- A 25-year-old youth soccer coach was fatally slashed in the neck and torso and his ear cut off in one of New York City's busiest neighborhoods last weekend, and police Monday were hunting for the suspected killer.

Michael Jones, a native of Liverpool, England, was a coach with the New York Red Bulls youth training program. He lived in West Harrison, in Westchester County.

He was on 14th Street in Manhattan's Union Square at around 4:30 a.m. Sunday when he was seen arguing with a man. Jones had earlier been out with his girlfriend but they parted around midnight, police said. Police were called the bloody scene where Jones lay on the street. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police late Sunday released surveillance footage of the suspected slasher, a man with a ponytail wearing a dark jacket. No arrests have been made.

The New York Red Bulls issued a statement, calling Jones a "fantastic coach who loved soccer."

"This is truly a sad day for our soccer community and we will do our utmost to help authorities in their investigation of this case. Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael's family at this time," the team said.

The New York Red Bulls are a Major League Soccer team.

NY wife-beat rap for Dallas soccer teams CEO
By Jamie Schram (New York Post)


A birthday weekend in New York turned ugly for the hulking CEO of Dallas professional soccer team when he was busted for allegedly beating and suffocating his wife in their luxury hotel room, law-enforcement sources said yesterday.

Hal Douglas Quinn, head of the Major League Soccer club FC Dallas, allegedly attacked Elizabeth Quinn, 46, after an argument at around 2:45 p.m. Saturday at The Alex Hotel on East 45th Street, the sources said.

It was his 50th birthday party Friday night. We had a lovely night, and unfortunately things went wrong, Elizabeth told The Post, adding that they plan to stay together. They have two small children.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Quinn allegedly pummeled his much-smaller wifes face and body, choked her with both hands, and held a pillow over her face until she passed out, the sources said.

Quinn was arrested at 4 p.m. on charges of assault and strangulation, and his wife was treated by paramedics at the scene for injuries to her face, arm, legs and eye, which was swollen shut, the sources said.

She was then taken to New York Hospital.

Quinn was released on $20,000 bail following his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Elizabeth did not provide cops with a motive for the alleged assault, according to the sources said.

In these cases, which are usually he said, she said, there is often another side to the story, and there certainly is one here, Hal Quinns lawyers said in a statement.

Quinn, who lives in Dallas, was in town with friends just visiting, said his lawyer, Alan Futerfas.

A spokeswoman for FC Dallas did not immediately comment.

Quinn is due back in court tomorrow.

The sports executive was a managing director and senior vice president of NFL International for 14 years before he became president of Soccer United Marketing in 2004.

FC Dallas hired him in 2010 and attracted its biggest crowd ever last July, according to a report.

But while attendance is up, the team itself isnt doing so well.

FC Dallas did not make the MLS playoffs this season, finishing sixth in the Western Conference.

MLS, France launch coaching exchange.
By Associated Press.


NEW YORK -- Major League Soccer is sending its youth academy coaches to study abroad.

Personnel from teams in North America's top pro league will visit France's national training center in Clairefontaine. Coaches from the French soccer federation will teach the same player development skills they use at the club level there. Material from MLS, as well as the U.S. and Canadian federations, will also be in the curriculum.

The program features two weeks of immersion at the international youth academies of top European teams, including Real Madrid, Lyon, Paris Saint-Germain, Stuttgart and Athletic Bilbao.

As part of the arrangement, French officials will visit the sites of MLS teams to review youth academy procedures, and help coaches qualify for elite coaching licenses.

MLS faces attendance challenge
By Paul Kennedy, Soccer Business Insider, socceramerica.com


Thanks to rising attendance, Major League Soccer has had a strong story to tell.

MLS averaged 18,807 fans a game in 2012 -- up 17 percent in just three years -- ranking third among American sports leagues, ahead of the NBA and NHL and behind the NFL and MLB, and sixth in the world among soccer leagues behind only the Bundesliga (Germany), Premier League (England), La Liga (Spain), Liga MX (Mexico) and Serie A (Italy).

(Both the Dutch Eredivisie and French Ligue 1 have both experienced decreases in 2012-13 that should drop them below MLS.)

But MLS faces perhaps its most challenging year in the last decade. For the first time since adding Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA in 2005, MLS will not welcome an expansion team or open a new stadium.

And it won't get the corresponding bump in attendance that these expansion teams and new teams have brought, especially in recent years.

Of the eight teams that averaged above the 2012 average of 18,807, seven were teams that arrived or opened a new stadium in 2009 or later. There was a difference of an average of almost 10,000 fans per game between those teams that arrived or opened a new stadium in 2009 or later and those teams that arrived or opened a new stadium before 2009.

For MLS to boost attendance this year, it will be entirely based on year-to-year jumps -- quite a challenge given that many of the best-drawing teams are at or near capacity to begin with.

More than ever, it will be back to basics for MLS clubs, making the work of ticket salespersons critical if MLS is to continue telling a positive storyline.

New teams/new stadiums (2009-12)
2012 AVG. TEAM (FIRST YEAR)
43,144 Seattle Sounders (2009)

City owners set for MLS franchise
By Kristan Heneage


The head of the owners of Manchester City is reported to be close to buying the franchise for a second MLS team in New York, the New York Times has reported.

Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, part of the Abu Dhabi royal family, whose private investment group owns City, is ready to invest a $100 million "expansion fee" to create the 20th MLS team. It will be based in Queens, may be called New York City FC and could begin playing in 2016.

The paper reported that a deal for the construction of a privately-funded $340 million stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park was close, and an announcement on the new franchise could be made prior to May 25, when City face Premier League rivals Chelsea in a New York friendly.

Last week, the New York mayor, Michael Bloomberg, told reporters: "Hopefully, we're getting close to announcing a new soccer stadium here in Flushing Meadows Park."

Recently-deposed Premier League champions City will be making a third visit to the US in four years. Their City in the Community programme has seen pitches built across the country, including in Manhattan, in recent years.

Despite the franchise deal reportedly being at an advanced stage, the New York Times also reported that hurdles remain.

These include concerns over park space being lost to the stadium, and the need to gain planning approval for it.

City officials recently confirmed that they were in "active discussions" with the MLS about the proposals.

Stefan Szymanski, a professor of sports management at the University of Michigan, was quoted in the New York Times report as saying: "These are long-term investors - the Warren Buffetts of the Middle East.

"It almost doesn't matter what plays inside the stadium. It's the location, the city, that indicates it's a good investment."

Manchester City have not commented on the report.

San Jose Earthquakes 1, Norwich City 0

Norwich slipped to a first defeat on their USA pre-season tour against a well-drilled San Jose outfit at Buck Shaw Stadium in the early hours of Sunday morning (BST).

Cordell Cato pounced a rare error from Russell Martin to calmly slot underneath Mark Bunn in the seventh minute. City gave debuts to both Dutch imports Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Leroy Fer but it was the MLS side who looked more likely to add to their slender lead. Citys club-record signing van Wolfswinkel earned himself a first half yellow card after a brief running skirmish with Quakes defenders Brad Ring and Dan Gargan. Fer looked an imposing figure when he was introduced at the interval but City were unable to seriously threaten home keeper David Bingham.

Chris Hughton kept only four of the starting line up from the midweek win over Mexican side Dorados de Sinaloa with Adel Gafaiti, Nathan Redmond, Alex Tettey and Jacob Butterfield all included again from the outset. Chris Hughtons men got off to the worst possible start when Cato struck - much to the delight of the Ultras stationed behind the Norwich keepers goal.

City upped the ante with Anthony Pilkington sneaking behind Seven Beitashour before Jonny Howson tested Bingham from 20 yards out but the Quakes keeper parried to clear his lines. Walter Martinez then drifted away from Dani Ayala but dragged wide of Bunns goal as the MLS side exhibited little trace of any inferiority complex in the early stages.

Van Wolfswinkel displayed his pace and predatory instincts to race in behind Beitashour after anticipating Javier Garridos raking clearance but the Quakes defender recovered to intercept. The Dutchman then demonstrated his will to win despite the relaxed surroundings with a minor spat that started with Ring and ended with his team mate Gargan booked for an aggressive shove.

Pilkingtons free kick was plucked by Bingham before Redmond capitalised on defensive hesitancy to round Bingham only for Ring to foil the recent Birmingham signing. Van Wolfswinkel evened up the crime count after a lunging challenge on Ring earned him a debut yellow card and Garrido joined him for a clip on goalscorer Cato.

Ring bravely threw himself at van Wolfswinkel with the Dutchman ready to test Bingham five minutes prior to the interval, but San Jose finished the stronger as Mehdi Ballouchy sidefooted over from 20 yards after some sharp interplay around the edge of Citys penalty area.

Hughton rang the changes again at half-time in a repeat of the opening tour win over the Mexicans. Fer was the headline introduction with van Wolfswinkel making way for midweek goalscorer Luciano Becchio. Wes Hoolahan was also introduced for his outing of the tour in place of Butterfield. Fers goalscoring instincts saw him advance but unleash a rising hit that flew over. The dangerous Martinez then burst away from Ayala but skied over John Ruddys bar.

Pilkington teased his way into the Quakes area before sliding to Becchio but the Argentine could only strike a grounded home defender. Ayalas affirmative action halted Marcus Tracy at the opposite end after the hosts sprung a sharp counter.


San Jose skipper Ramiro Corrales momentarily had Ruddy scrambling across his goal with City still second best in the sparring. The England keeper then dropped sharply on his goalline to foil Sam Garza after City were cut open down their left flank. Garza curled a golden chance wide to seal the win in the 87th minute after racing beyond a tiring City backline but guiding two yards beyond Ruddys left-hand upright. Shea Salinas had the final say when he slalomed his way around Ryan Bennett but fired over.

San Jose Earthquakes: Bingham, Beitashour (Bernardez 62), Ring, Gargan, Stewart (Morrow 62), Cato, Ballouchy, Corrales, Garza, Salinas (Martinez 52), Tracy (Jahn 71). Subs (not used): Newton, Baca, Cronin, Lenhart.

U.S. calls up 23 players for camp
August 11, 2013
By Associated Press


Former Iceland international Aron Johannsson is among 23 players called up for the U.S. soccer team's training camp in Sarajevo ahead of its exhibition against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Johannsson is awaiting completion of paperwork that would make him eligible to play for the U.S. The forward, who plays for AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands, needs approval from FIFA to make the switch because he played for Iceland in eight qualifiers for the 2012 UEFA Under-21 Championship.

The 22-year-old was born in Mobile, Ala., but moved back to his parents' native Iceland when he was 3.

Most of the players called up for the three-day camp are based in Europe, though coach Jurgen Klinsmann did bring in Seattle's Brad Evans and Eddie Johnson. Mexico-based Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Michael Orozco Fiscal also were included on the roster. U.S. captain Clint Dempsey, who just completed a move from England's Tottenham Hotspur to Seattle, was not brought in.

The Americans, who have a record 11-game winning streak, play Bosnia-Herzegovina on Wednesday in Sarajevo. It is their only game before World Cup qualifying resumes Sept. 6 in Costa Rica.

"Our European-based players are just getting started with their seasons and this gives them a chance to get going a couple weeks before our big World Cup qualifiers," Klinsmann said. "We're also excited to bring some new faces into the senior team and have them start to become part of the group."

Team

Goalkeepers: Cody Cropper (Southampton, England), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, England), Tim Howard (Everton, England).

Defenders: John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin, Germany), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City, England), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana, Mexico), Brad Evans (Seattle), Michael Orozco Fiscal (Puebla, Mexico), Michael Parkhurst (Augsburg, Germany), Tim Ream (Bolton, England).

Midfielders: Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes, France), Michael Bradley (Roma, Italy), Joe Corona (Tijuana, Mexico), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg, Norway), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim, Germany), Jermaine Jones (Schalke, Germany), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht, Belgium), Danny Williams (Reading, England).

Forwards: Jozy Altidore (Sunderland, England), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna, Austria), Eddie Johnson (Seattle), Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar, Netherlands), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich, Germany).

I guess you can throw Nick DeLeon and Shaenon Williams if we're not talking about capped Trinis.  I think Molino and Cato have the brightest future as far as the list goes.  Both are LOVED by the fans and club and while Molino plays a more important roll and will get a ton of learning experience playing with the likes of KaKa, I think the MLS is soon to start reaching out to more Caribbean players. The combine earlier this year was a good start.

As such, Sac Republic should be on a young baller's radar.

Sacramento? That will be four teams based in California. Unless they movie Chivas to there. Heard them talking about Las Vegas and Atlanta. Atlanta would be a good place for a Trinidadian to fit nicely into the team and adjust easily. So many Trinis there. If I young player in Trinidad right now I would be trying to get a link up with NYCFC with their direct link to MCFC, that's a route to England. All we have to do is improve our rankings. 

When Orlando enter the MLS, are we sure they taking their players, or will the recruit players that are MLS level.

They can sign their own players, yes. Eg. Kevin Molino was their first MLS signing.
However, there will also be an expansion draft and they can draft unprotected players from current MLS teams, this will take place in the off season before they join the league next year.

Thierry Henry announces his retirement from soccer to join Sky Sports in London
MLS Soccer

Thierry Henry has subbed off for the final time in his career.

On Tuesday morning, the French legend, who spent the past four and a half years with the New York Red Bulls, announced his retirement from soccer. He will now move back to London and join Sky Sports.

"It has been an incredible journey and I would like to thank all the fans, team mates and individuals involved with AS Monaco, Juventus, Arsenal FC, FC Barcelona, the New York Red Bulls and of course the French National Team that have made my time in the game so special," Henry wrote on his Facebook page.

Henry, 37, is retiring after more than 20 years as a professional. He leaves the game as one of the most feared strikers of his generation, having scored more than 350 goals in all competitions, including 52 total for the Red Bulls (regular season and playoffs) and a club record 228 for Premier League side Arsenal.

The 2006 FIFA World Cup saw Henry again leading the frontline for the French team that reached the final, where they lost to Italy on penalties after Zidane's infamous headbutt on Marco Materazzi. Henry again scored three goals in the tournament. 

In 2007, Henry left Arsenal to join Spanish powerhouse FC Barcelona, where he helped the Blaugrana win consecutive La Liga titles in 2009 and 2010 as well as the 2009 UEFA Champions League.

After three years at the Camp Nou in Barcelona, Henry was ready for a new challenge, and MLS and the Red Bulls came calling in the summer of 2010. A lifelong fan of New York City, Henry embraced the Big Apple and immediately injected a new energy into the club, who had opened Red Bull Arena earlier that year.

Over four and a half seasons with the Red Bulls, Henry built on his already formidible legend, scoring 51 goals and 42 assists in 122 regular-season appearances. In 2013, he led the Red Bulls to the Supporters' Shield, given annually to the club with the best overall record. It was the Red Bulls' first major trophy.

But Henry could never get the club the ultimate prize in MLS: the MLS Cup. The closest he came was this past season, when the Red Bulls fell at the penultimate stage, losing to the New England Revolution in the Eastern Conference Championship.

Henry announced he would leave the Red Bulls a few days after the loss to the Revs. He will be rememberd as one of the best players in MLS history, a description which is only partially captured by the individual honors he picked up: three appearances on the year-end Best XI and four AT&T MLS All-Star nods.

Beyond the statistics and the accolades, he will be remembered by soccer fans around the world for his grace, his creativity, and his competitiveness.

Brek Shea closing in on move from Stoke City to Orlando City
It looks like Brek Shea's rough stint abroad is officially coming to an end.
The 24-year-old U.S. national team winger is in the process of sealing a move to MLS expansion side Orlando City, according to Stoke City manager Mark Hughes.
"We envisage Brek completing his move to Orlando," Hughes said Thursday via Stoke's official Twitter account. "It hasn't been confirmed yet, but he was in the building yesterday trying to tie it up."
Shea, whose impending move to Orlando City was first reported by the Orlando Sentinel, has made just three first-team appearances for Stoke since joining the Premier League club in January 2013. The Texas native has also played 14 matches in the Championship during loan stints to Barnsley and Birmingham.
Before moving to England, Shea compiled 19 goals and 14 assists in five seasons with FC Dallas -- finishing as an MVP finalist in 2011.

Home openers on March 14 feature Vancouver at Chicago, Philadelphia at Salt Lake and Toronto at Columbus. New England hosts Montreal on March 21, when NYCFC is at Colorado. The following day, the Red Bulls host D.C. United.

Montreal plays its home opener March 27 against Orlando. Toronto will spend two months playing on the road during renovations to BMO Field before its home opener against Houston on May 10.

2014 in Review: New York City FC dream big and make a splash ahead of inaugural MLS campaign
The year started with a coach and a sporting director.

It now finishes for New York City FC with a growing roster of 19 players, including Designated Players David Villa and Frank Lampard, and a hunger from a fan base already featuring 11,000 season ticket holders for the start of the inaugural season.

A few days removed from leading Real Salt Lake to the MLS Cup title game, Kreis ended his seven-year run with with RSL and was announced as the first NYCFC head coach on Dec. 10, 2013.

After an early January unveiling, Kreis immediately jetted off to Manchester to familiarize himself with sister club Manchester Citys set-up, beginning a year-long

On June 2, the club announced the signing of its first player all-time Spain leading scorer David Villa. More than a month later, Lampard was introduced as the second Designated Player.

As those two cornerstones fell in place, Kreis and his staff starting using their knowledge of the league to bring in a group of experienced MLS players, the team revealed a new jersey and crest, and the puzzle of the expansion team started to take form.

Buzzworthy moment

There was already a buzz when NYCFC announced Villa as the team's first player. It went to another level in late July when Lampard was introduced to the media at a press conference in Brooklyn.

The Chelsea legend said he was ready to be an ambassador for the sport in North America, in the same vein as David Beckham when he signed with the LA Galaxy.

Its important, and Im very aware of that role. I take it very strongly, Lampard said of his new role. Hopefully my football will do the talking. But as an ambassador to a new franchise, I think its important not just what we do on the pitch, but embracing the community.

Lampard would soon be loaned to Manchester City, where hes performed well in a second stint in the EPL. The possibility of a loan extension with the high-flying Blues has created its own worldwide buzz.

Stadium situation

The new franchise's first home stadium was announced in April, with the iconic Yankee Stadium serving as a temporary home for the 2015 season.

But where will the clubs permanent home be built? That is still very much up in the air.

The first site to be discussed was Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, even before the club was announced. That all but died, however, following opposition from parts of the community about building a stadium on parkland.

There were talks of a stadium across from Yankee Stadium, but New York City major Bill de Blasio expressed opposition. Then, NYCFC was reportedly interested in a site by Aqueduct Racetrack, back in Queens.

But the year ends without any concrete plans.

Supporters groups

The day it was announced there would be a second MLS team in the New York City area, Chance Michaels started a fan blog. Then in July, Michaels started a membership drive for the clubs first supporters group.

I honestly didnt know what to expect. When we first started this, there werent any players, there wasnt a logo, there wasnt anything, Michaels said. I thought if by the first match we could have 500 paid members, Id be happy. We passed 500 members in three weeks.

After a vote on the name, the Third Rail was born and the team itself immediately embraced the group.

They participated in what the badge was going to look like, we let them choose where they wanted to sit at Yankee Stadium, NYCFC Chief Business Officer Tim Pernetti said. Thats the culture were trying to create. I think supporters are growing because they have access to this club.
Coaching philosophy and tactics

Kreis said he was hired for a reason, and part of that reason was the attractive, possession-oriented soccer he employed at Real Salt Lake, usually with the team set up in a 4-4-2 diamond formation.

A former MLS star himself, Kreis explained that he learned the importance of building a team starting with the center of the park in his second year at RSL, and promptly backed up his words with the signings of Lampard and Villa.

As weve gone from there, were looking for players to compliment those two players styles and also fit in with the way Manchester City wants to see the game played and also the way Claudio and I want to see the game played, Kreis said. Were always looking for players who fit into the style of soccer and the type of group we want to be.

Needs

1. A full roster: The roster has increased from six players to 19 in about two weeks following the conclusion of the MLS season, but it is still very much a work in progress.

The next phase, according to Reyna, includes college and international players.

The acquisition of the former will play out in the days leading up to the 2015 MLS SuperDraft on Jan. 15. As for the latter group, there's a possibility of up to four Manchester City youth players coming on loan, while Kreis and his staff have been scouring South America in an attempt to find the same kind of quality players he was known for signing at RSL.

2. Another DP: Kreis and sporting director Claudio Reyna have said that the club wants to bring in a third Designated Player prior to the start of the season.

Will that player be a USMNT regular? Perhaps Jozy Altidore or Mix Diskerud? Or could it be another international star? Maybe Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, who has also been linked to the New York Red Bulls?

Its all a bit murky right now and part of a roster build that has been less than fun for Kreis.

Right now it feels like torture, Kreis said. But come Jan. 24 when we have the whole group together and were on the soccer field and Im a soccer coach again, Im going to be extremely happy that we were able to do it.

MLS is  not that bad. There are some teams that are more exciting than others and I'm sure if they did good television coverage the game out look more exciting. I've always had a problem with how they present the product. The audio, the camera angles and announcers are all poor. I'm sure that Seattle Sounders, LA Galaxy and now New England Revolution are about as good as a middle table EPL teams.

Here's how they can improve their league

- Increase salary cap (pretty obvious)

-Better production for games (Announcers over explain things, quote meaningless stats. The cameras are too far, can never tell who ahs the ball, I hate hearing the sound of the ball and even in noisy stadiums they don't let you hear the crowd, they don't do slow-mos , nothing just bland production and I find American accents extremely annoying when listening to commentary and they aren't witty like English commentators either. just awful).

-Stop acting like players on their last legs are stars. ( the world laughs at the them when they do this).

-Stop Adidas sponsorship. ( Some might disagree but the kits look similar to me and Adidas makes some boring kits  to begin with) No team has a strong identity except maybe Redbulls and Seattle.

Stop the Conference non-sense. I saw Seattle play LA five  times in one season in regular MLS play. What is the point of that. Why can't they play each team Home and Away. Teams in the West will always have a it harder to win the Supporters Shield because that conference is much  harder.( for those of you that don't know, the Shield is given to the team with the most points at the end of the regular season) When you have to play LA, Portland, Salt Lake five times, meanwhile some teams in the east have to play lame teams like Chicago, Toronto, Columbus and DC it's no wonder the Eastern teams win the Supporters shield more often. Also the playoffs are unfair because the teams are harder in west and teams from the east just need to be good enough. They should make brackets that mix from east and west to decide the Championship.

No more expansion draft- By having new teams pick from an already talent deprived pool just makes the talent even more diluted. New teams, sign new players and trade when the window opens like normal. How stupid is it that teams have to submit a list of players 11, that they want to protect from being drafted to Orlando or NYCFC. You could end up loosing a valuable player.  Like Portland didn't protect Ricketts ( their starting Goal Keeper) and he was taken by Orlando. Why couldn't Orlando  just buy a  new keeper.

No more games during the International Window.

The commissioner needs to stop arguing with Klinsmann. Jurgen doesn't give a damn and the commissioner is just there arguing over everything he says. At the end of the day America is not a country with footballing knowledge, no one respects the commissioner (not even in America) but people do respect Klinsmann.



That's just my take on what I've seen from watching and following MLS.

Jamieson's star shines bright for LA & US l De Rossi reportedly interested in New York move
Here are the top 15 stories everyone's talking about this morning:

1. PATH TO PRO

USL is quite rightly being touted as an ever-more important rung on the ladder of professional soccer in the US, particularly with the growing number of MLS development sides. But it's not all wunderkinds and five-star prospects: there's always been room for guys who fall more into the "solid pro" category, and perhaps no-one better epitomises that than Luke Mulholland, the Real Salt Lake midfielder who worked his way up from the USL PDL to being a regular starter for one of the better teams in MLS.

2. MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Let's not forget the wunderkinds, though. Having made an impact for the US U20s in CONCACAF qualifying, Bradford Jameson IV is showing the benefits of regular playing time for younger players in USL and according to the LA Galaxy II star, as far as development goes, I think its going to be influential in the future of US Soccer.

3. PROVISIONAL PLAYERS

Jamieson and 20 others are in the first U20 camp of the year for the US. Head coach Tab Ramos named both a 21-man camp and a 35-man provisional U20 roster for the upcoming CONCACAF Championship. There are 10 MLS players amongst the 35 names included, from which Ramos must select 20 by Friday.'

4. HOUSTONS NEXT TARGET?

It seems that the Houston Dynamos signings wont stop with Erick Torres, as reports over the weekend indicate the club could be closing in on 27-year-old Spanish defender Raul Rodriguez, currently with La Liga side Espanyol. The veteran center back would certainly fill a need.

5. AGITATED AGENT

The Dynamo have also expanded their current roster by officially signing Re-Entry Draft selection Chandler Hoffman. However, while the club also picked up Samuel Inkoom in a trade with D.C. United, it seems the Ghanaian's representatives have some issues with the deal.

6. LAFCS LATEST ADDITIONS

LAFC have added a further two individuals to their ownership group with Lon Rosen and Tucker Kain, both currently executives with the LA Dodgers, coming on board for the new MLS Franchise. That brings the group to 24.

7. DE ROSSI AND THE BIG APPLE

Could an Italian World Cup winner be on his way to MLS? According to stories from Italy, Daniel De Rossi is considering a move stateside for the next stage of his career, with both the New York Red Bulls and New York City FC said to be interested in the 31-year-old midfielder. Take this one with a gigantic grain of salt as De Rossi, a former teammate of Michael Bradley who's perhaps best-known in US circles for breaking Brian McBride's face at the 2006 World Cup, looks the part of an AS Roma lifer.

8. NOUVEAUX AJOUTS?

A more reliable source is reporting that the Montreal Impact are on the verge of adding a pair of DPs ahead of the 2015 preseason, and could find a third, non-DP player in the mix as well. Given their heavy early-season schedule -- they're in the CONCACAF Champions League knockout rounds, remember -- the earlier the better for any and all new additions at Stade Saputo.

9. A CAREER IN SOUTH KOREA

Hey, ever wondered what Ryan Johnsons up to since leaving MLS? Well, it looks like the Jamaican international is heading for a reunion with another former MLS man, Vancouver Whitecaps boss Martin Rennie, with reports that the striker is set to sign for the Scotsmans South Korean side Seoul E-Land.

10. GARGAN TARGETS MORE

While Dan Gargan was brought into the LA Galaxy squad last season to provide much needed depth, circumstances meant that the versatile 32-year-old ended up in a starting role for much of the year. Will Gargans performances have been enough to earn him a regular spot in 2015?

11. THE EXPORT BUSINESS

While MLS players enjoy a well-earned holiday rest, Christmas is a particularly busy time for Americans in England, with export standouts Geoff Cameron and Brad Guzan both finishing the year with shutouts in the English Premier League.

12. HOWARD TARGETS 2018

Tim Howard, meanwhile, played no part in his Everton sides 3-2 loss to Newcastle United having picked up a calf strain in the Boxing Day clash against Camerons Stoke City. Off the field the US international, who still hopes to play in the 2018 World Cup, has revealed that speaking to President Obama on the phone was nowhere near as daunting as an angry Sir Alex Ferguson.

13. KLJESTAN IS AVAILABLE

Could a Sacha Kljestan move to MLS still be on the cards? The US international certainly looks like he might be going somewhere after Belgian side Anderlecht revealed that the midfielder is available for a fair offer.

14. MEXICO: A TOP 10 TEAM?

Under manager Miguel Herrera, the Mexican national team seems to have found its way again. Herreras aims for 2015 are to win the Gold Cup and reach the final of the Copa America, and MLSsoccer.com contributor Tom Marshall thinks there should be a third target on the list: get Mexico back into the top 10 in FIFAs world rankings.

15: THE OTHER GIANTS

If Mexico gets into the top 10, where does that leave the US? They're currently ranked 27th by FIFA, third place in CONCACAF behind Costa Rica (16) and El Tri (20), and have plenty at stake in this summer's Gold Cup. Here's Ives Galarcep's early prediction for Jurgen Klinsmann's roster.

According to Soccer America:

Quote
In yet another twist to the story, it appears there was no loan deal between NYCFC and Manchester City, which means Lampard was never owned by NYCFC, which claimed in its signing announcement on July 24 it had signed him to a two-year contract beginning Aug. 1.

Nowhere does NYCFC ever refer to Lampard being on loan, and the MLS Players Union does not include him among the NYCFC players on its Sept. 15 salary list. He'd be on the list if he was on loan from NYCFC to Manchester City. Wednesday's announcement refers to Lampard's contract being extended, not a loan agreement being extended.

Steven Gerrard signs 18-month LA Galaxy deal
UK Guardian


http://www.theguardian.com/football/2015/jan/07/steven-gerrard-contract-la-galaxy-liverpool

Steven Gerrard will join Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the season in an 18-month deal worth around 4m a year, describing the move to the MLS club as a match made in heaven.

Gerrards departure will end a 27-year association with Liverpool, with the captain to start playing for Galaxy in July. With the franchise having won the Major League Soccer Cup three times in past four years, Gerrard wants to end his career on a winning note.

The times right for myself and my family for the change, for the fresh challenge, he told the LA Times. I want to finish my career very strong. I want to add some more medals and trophies to my collection. So I think its a match made in heaven. One of the reasons why I chose LA Galaxy was because of the success theyve had recently but also the plans for more success in the future.

Bruce Arena, the Galaxy coach who has been in charge for all of the three MLS titles over the past four years, said: Steven Gerrard arrives in July and by then we will certainly have a plan available. Hes a player of quality. Im not concerned about how hes going to fit in. We have a club with a proven history of success. All those things go hand in hand in making LA Galaxy a very attractive team for players such as Steven Gerrard.

The Galaxy president, Chris Klein, said: We just started thinking in the universe of players that are out there, we want to make a decision on what signifies a Galaxy-designated player. When we look at that, Steven Gerrard is the perfect fit with what he brings to us on the field and the character that he has off it.

Confirmation of the deal came after the fallout continued over the manner of Gerrards leaving of Liverpool. The 34-year-old said he would still be at Anfield next season had the club offered him a contract extension last summer and not in November, by which stage Brendan Rodgers had made clear Gerrard would no longer be an automatic selection.

If a contract had been put in front of me in pre-season I would have signed it, Gerrard told the Liverpool Echo. Id just retired from England to concentrate all my efforts on Liverpool. I didnt want my club games to be tailored.

My injury record had been fantastic for the past two and a half years and I had a great season from a personal point of view last season. Its all ifs, buts and hindsight now. That period between the summer and the end of November gave me thinking time.

Theres no blame and Im not angry about it. There are other people in the squad and the club had other things to worry about. Liverpool Football Club have been unbelievable for me since I was eight years old. This club has helped me fulfil my dreams over and over again. There is no finger pointing from me towards the manager or anyone else at the club.

Danny Murphy believes the manner of Gerrards departure stinks. The former Liverpool and England team-mate of Gerrard told Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: You can only be judged on the season youve just played and, last season, he was terrific. He probably felt hed warranted a new contract at that point. Liverpool let it get to November or December before they offered him anything. In fact, that offer was only triggered by Stevie going out in the press and saying he hadnt been offered a new deal. That says to me that the club, and Brendan [Rodgers], were already thinking about him moving on.

Each manager has his own opinion and Brendan is not going to come out and say, that was my decision. It stinks a bit that they treat a player like that. We saw the same thing with Chelsea and Frank Lampard. Clubs say: We have offered him a new deal but its always on reduced wages. Its not how you should treat someone whos put their all into a club.

Title: MLS and British broadcaster Sky Sports announce groundbreaking partnership

MLS and British broadcaster Sky Sports announce groundbreaking partnership
MLSSoccer.com


Major League Soccer announced on Wednesday that it has partnered with British sports broadcaster Sky Sports to televise league matches live in the United Kingdom, marking the first time Sky Sports will own MLS broadcast rights. The four-year multimedia deal begins with the kickoff of MLSs landmark 20th season.

As part of the new agreement, Sky Sports will broadcast at least two MLS regular-season matches each week, as well as the AT&T MLS All-Star Game, every MLS Cup Playoff game, and the MLS Cup final. The matches will appear across Sky's family of networks.

The UK-based broadcaster will also carry weekly MLS highlights across various platforms, including Sky Sports News and SkySports.com.

Sky Sports will also broadcast at least one match from MLS's new "Decision Day" the recently announced format change for the final day of the MLS regular season, during which all Eastern Conference games will be played simultaneously at 5 pm ET (9 pm UK time) followed by all Western Conference games at 7 pm ET (11 pm UK time). Many of the matches are expected to determine the final spots for the MLS Cup Playoffs.

MLS on TV: Find out where you can watch MLS games in the US and Canada
As MLS continues to grow into a global brand, we are excited to partner with Sky Sports, a leader in the UK TV market, to bring the sport to millions of soccer fans, said Gary Stevenson, president and managing director, MLS Business Ventures, in a statement. 2015 is a milestone year for MLS including new stars, new clubs and a new brand. Sky Sports will help continue to grow the League and clubs worldwide.

Football in the US and Canada has enormous potential for growth and we cant wait to bring this competition to our viewers for the first time, said Sky Sports Managing Director Barney Francis. Thierry Henry has joined us [as an on-air pundit]. He created fantastic memories in MLS, and we look forward to seeing more of those great stories from across the Atlantic.

Henry played for the New York Red Bulls for nearly five seasons before retiring from the game after the 2014 season.

I saw the passion of the fans in the US and Canada," he said in a statement. "They have always had it for other sports but they also have it for football now and its going to be huge in years to come. Sky Sports is the best place for the game, to bring it closer to fans in the UK and build MLS even more.

Henry is just one of several Sky ambassadors. Another is David Beckham, the retired two-time MLS Cup champion with the LA Galaxy who is currently spearheading an MLS expansion bid in Miami. He sees the new deal with Sky Sports as another step in the evolution of MLS. 

"This is another important moment that shows the continued growth of MLS," he said in a statement. "I have seen first-hand how popular soccer has become in America. Having fantastic partners such as Sky Sports on board will not only add to the coverage of the game, it will also broaden its appeal outside of the US."

The deal was negotiated with MLS new global media rights agent, IMG, as part of a continued focus to bring MLS to more fans around the world and grow the relevance of the league.

Title: Growth of MLS not only making U.S. stronger, but its CONCACAF rivals too
Post by: Tallman on September 23, 2015, 01:56:49 PM
Growth of MLS not only making U.S. stronger, but its CONCACAF rivals too
By Noah Davis (ESPN FC)


When the United States men's national team lost a shocker to Jamaica in the semifinal of the 2015 Gold Cup, the Reggae Boyz got goals from Darren Mattocks and Giles Barnes. The two attackers play in Major League Soccer -- for the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Houston Dynamo, respectively -- and so do five of their teammates from the squad that pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history.

A growing number of MLSers are making national teams around CONCACAF. Forty-five players appeared in the 23-man rosters for the regional championship with another 18 listed on the preliminary team sheets. Even accounting for the dozen Americans in the 45, that's a record number -- one that demonstrates MLS's growing influence on the national teams that most frequently play the Stars and Stripes. Players from CONCACAF countries who come to the U.S. find an improving league, good pay and excellent conditions. The opportunities, in turn, create stiffer competition for the red, white and blue.

"Yes, 100 percent," said Alvas Powell, a defender for the Portland Timbers who appeared in the Gold Cup along with Mattocks and Barnes, when asked whether having so many players in MLS made Jamaica a better team.

Costa Rica's Waylon Francis agrees. "To be honest, coming here and playing in a different country exposes you to different things and gives you, what I would say, a better edge," the Columbus Crew defender said. "It has benefited our national team in many ways."

Joevin Jones, who played with W Connection in Trinidad and Tobago before joining the Chicago Fire, sees the Soca Warriors benefiting as well. "We are improving because almost all our players play abroad," the midfielder with 38 caps for his country said. "A lot of them play in MLS."

The fact more of CONCACAF's best find themselves in MLS isn't a bug; it's a feature, which is a part of the league's grand plan for improvement. "If we have more players who are playing for national teams in CONCACAF, that's a good indication that we are succeeding," Todd Durbin, MLS's vice president of player relations, told me a few years ago. "We want the best players in CONCACAF to believe that MLS is the best place for them to play, the best place for them to compete and the best place for them to continue their careers."

At the 2003 Gold Cup, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama and T&T had a total of five players who called MLS home with the vast majority of their players playing in their domestic leagues. (Panama and T&T didn't even qualify.) During the 2015 version, 32 MLSers represented those six countries. This season, for the first time in MLS history, more than 50 percent of the league's players were born outside the U.S.

This dynamic creates a conundrum. A better MLS is better for American players, but it also improves the fortunes of the U.S.'s CONCACAF opposition. And more foreign talent limits the opportunities for Americans. There are only so many roster spots, after all.

The question is whether the success in drawing skilled men from around the region negatively impacts the U.S. national team. The short answer is yes because it's helping all national teams improve, especially the ones from smaller countries with a developing soccer program. Panama and T&T, specifically, have seen their Elo ratings rocket from 1367 and 1394, respectively in Sept. 2003, to 1671 and 1579 at the beginning of this month.

This isn't entirely due to MLS, but it's part of the equation. Several of the region's players say infrastructure is better in the U.S. than in leagues in Central America and the Caribbean, and MLS provides a stage for someone such as Honduras' Andy Najar to be seen. If it wasn't for his time at D.C. United, would Anderlecht have come calling? Probably not. Finally, MLS creates opportunities for younger players from CONCACAF countries, which increases the difficulty for the U.S. to qualify for important age-group tournaments such as the U-20 World Cup and the Olympics.

However, it's not entirely a bad thing for the U.S. to face better teams in CONCACAF tournaments. If head coach Jurgen Klinsmann wants competition, he's going to get it as MLS helps other national squads improve. And let's face it: Even increased competition shouldn't lead to losses; the Americans should still be a superior side to all regional opponents with the possible exception of Mexico.

For every Jamaican player MLS gives an opportunity to, it gives at least one and probably two or three to young U.S. talents -- especially as the reserve squads in USL and the development academies gain traction. Three years ago, 56 of the top 100 American players were MLS-based but only three of the top 20. As of August, it's 60 out of 100 and, remarkably, 10 out of the top 20. Aron Johannsson was the only American scorer in the 2015 Gold Cup who doesn't play in MLS.

One thing is clear: the influx won't stop. If anything, it will speed up. As more players from individual countries find success in the league, they open up opportunities for their countrymen and others from around the region.

Jones considers Daneil Cyrus, who had a short stint with Sporting Kansas City in 2011 and is now on loan with the Chicago Fire, one of his best friends. Powell asked Ryan Johnson and Donovan Ricketts about MLS before Powell moved to the Timbers. They told him it was a good league with great young talent. Francis talked to MLS veteran Alvaro Saborio before making his move.

"Luckily, us Ticos have had some success here in the league, and it is good not only for Costa Rica but Central America," Saborio said. "I think that also fires up the guys, the young players that want to go out and take care of their business and come to this league."

Powell agrees: "A lot of young players have already moved to MLS, and a lot of young players would love to come to play in MLS, 100 percent right now."

When they do, the Americans may suffer more defeats like the Gold Cup debacle, giving Klinsmann another reason to express his ire at the domestic league.

Watched part of that game. Missed the penalty but word is that Joevin never touched the guy. As for the pass to Dempsey, JJ got to the byline and laid it back for Dempsey at the top of the box(put it on a plate for him really). Dempsey went for the far post and missed just wide.

Title: 2017 MLS Thread.

MLS releases full 2017 schedule, including break in July for Gold Cup
BY DOUG MCINTYRE (ESPN).


MLS unveiled its 2017 season schedule on Thursday, and for the first time it includes a break for the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The domestic league will go dark for almost two weeks during a major international tournament for the third time in four years, with no games scheduled between July 7-18.

MLS also took time off during the last two World Cups and for last summer's Copa America Centenario. Last year's hiatus for the U.S.-hosted Copa had no negative impact at the gate or on television viewership, as MLS set attendance and viewership records last season.

But as much as the move shows how the league has evolved over its 22 seasons -- MLS played through the World Cup in 1998, 2002 and '06 -- it's also a practical matter. With so many players from around the CONCACAF region now dotting MLS rosters, many teams would have struggled to put a quality product on the field during the competition.

However, MLS will continue to play with a reduced schedule through most FIFA windows.

Six teams -- Columbus Crew SC, Minnesota United, the New England Revolution, New York Red Bulls and Portland Timbers -- have games slated for March 25, one day after the U.S. national team faces Honduras in a high-stakes qualifier for next year's World Cup in Russia, and three days before another pivotal qualifier in Panama.

A half-dozen clubs will also play games during June's international window, in part because the schedule is so packed.

The arrival of Minnesota and Atlanta United as expansion teams brings the total number of regular-season matches to 374, an all-time high. Each club will play 34 games in all, the same as last year. The two newcomers will face off on March 12 and Aug. 13, with ESPN networks broadcasting both meetings.

MLS announced the home openers for each team three weeks ago. The season opens March 3, when Minnesota travels to Portland.

Among the other key matches are a March 5 tilt between Orlando City and New York City FC that will serve as the curtain-raiser for Orlando's new downtown stadium.

Atlanta will christen Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the home it is to share with the NFL's Falcons, on July 30 against Orlando, while the defending champion Seattle Sounders will meet Toronto FC May 6 in a MLS Cup rematch.

The league has also taken steps to reduce the number of games played during the day in blistering summer temperatures. Just nine matches will be held on early summer afternoons, down from 15 in 2016.

Five of those games will be played in cooler northern climates in Minnesota, Montreal Portland, Seattle and Toronto. Another is set for Atlanta's new digs, which will feature air conditioning under its retractable roof.

The final weekend of the regular season -- dubbed "Decision Day" -- will again feature all clubs kicking off simultaneously, with one small change from last year. Because expansion swelled the Eastern and Western conferences to 11 teams each, one inter-conference matchup -- between the Chicago Fire and Houston Dynamo on Oct. 22 -- was necessary.

That anomaly could last more than one season, as LAFC is currently the only guaranteed newcomer in 2018.

MLS players weigh in on expansion, pro/rel, Beckham and playoff structure
ESPN Staff


MLS players are split on whether the league should expand past 24 clubs -- though many think the target of 28 teams is too low -- as well as instituting promotion and relegation, a survey conducted by ESPN FC shows.

On the condition of anonymity, ESPN FC asked 140 current MLS players from 21 teams (New York City FC declined to participate) what they believed was the ideal number of teams.

At 25 percent, the most widely selected answer was 24 clubs, with another 27 percent choosing fewer, 44 percent choosing more and 4 percent declining to answer.

"I think there are certain markets that aren't up to par, and I think 20 is the ideal number for a single-table format, which I think would work best," one Eastern Conference player said.

The addition of Atlanta United and Minnesota United this season puts 22 teams in MLS, and LAFC and David Beckham's plans for a Miami club will bring the number to 24.

In January, MLS received bids from 12 different markets hoping to be among two more teams that will join the league by 2020, with another two to follow after that, for a total of 28.

While 19 percent of players thought 28 teams was an appropriate number, 21 percent thought that the league could afford to move to 30 or more in the years to come.

"It's kind of unlimited," one Western Conference player said. "The U.S. is a special country. You have 50 states. There are a lot of people trying to get a professional soccer club at the highest level. 32 maybe? We have the capacity to have a couple divisions of top quality soccer in the United States."

One midfielder went even further, saying: "I'd like to see 70 top-class teams. Why not? Every state should have a team, and the big cities should have two. There are 72 pro teams in England, and it's tiny. This is a huge country. Look at all the markets that are popping up. Business people wouldn't invest if there wasn't a demand. This sport is growing like crazy."

Promotion and relegation

As the league expands, 54 percent of MLS players say they would be in favor of instituting promotion and relegation, with just 40 percent against and 6 percent declining to answer.

"I think it just adds to the competitive nature," a Western Conference player said. "Teams on the bottom have no incentive to get better. It will spark owners to get more interested in their clubs, or get new owners who have a passion for the game."

The results are a reverse from last year's survey, when 51 percent said they would be against a pro/rel system, though it's more in line with the 2015 survey that showed 64 percent in favor.

"I don't think there are enough strong teams to do that and if I put myself in the owners' shoes I would not want to add that sort of risk to my investment," another Western Conference player said. "Maybe down the line in 10 or 20 years, but not yet."

Beckham's Miami plans

With so many cities competing for so few spots, players were also split on whether Beckham's quest to start a Miami club will ever come to fruition.

Beckham and his partners first announced their plans in 2014, but after a number of failed efforts to find a stadium site, only 48 percent of MLS players asked said they believe the club will ever play, while 45 percent said it would not and 7 percent declined to answer.

"There are too many hurdles. It's just not a good sports town," an Eastern Conference player said. "I don't think it was smart from the beginning and I think there are a lot of other cities that are more deserving, more prepared and would do better for the league."

A number of players noted the difficulties the NBA's Miami Heat had selling out games even when LeBron James was on the team, though one midfielder thought the new club's star power would make a difference, saying "If anyone can get it done, it's Beckham."

Schedule and playoff length

The current playoffs format features 12 teams and last year's postseason lasted from Oct. 26 to Dec. 10 with an international break built in.

A majority of players -- 68 percent -- believed those six and a half weeks were too long for a team to maintain momentum, but an overwhelming 84 percent still viewed winning the MLS Cup as more important than the Supporters' Shield for the top regular-season record.

"No one remembers the Supporters' Shield winners," one player said.

But players aren't aiming to reduce the length of the season at the expense of their national teams, with 82 percent against the league continuing its policy of playing through international breaks.

MLS will take a two-week July break this year during the CONCACAF Gold Cup but a limited number of games will still be played on dedicated FIFA dates throughout 2017.

While many players noted it wasn't fair to clubs to play without their top players, one defender said it helped to level the playing field.

"It adds some flavor to the league," he said. "For younger guys who are looking to make it, it's a good opportunity. And I think it shows who the best teams are, who has the best depth."

MLS clubs off-loading T&T players like hot bread.
By Inshan Mohammed.


Since this country's 2-1 victory over the United States in last month 2018 World Cup qualifying match at the Ato Boldon Stadium, things has been going soar for T&T players who ply their trades in the U.S at a rapid rate.

The T&T defeat subsequently meant a lot as it resulted in the Americans being knocked out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, a first since re-entering the tournament in 1990 and now, T&T players seems to be paying the price?

Ironically, back in 1989 it was the Americans doing the damage when they sneezed past T&T 1-0 in Port of Spain that dashed T&T hopes of qualifying for the 1990 World Cup finals, instead USA were the ones going to Italy. The United States have participated at the 1930, 1934 and 1950 World Cups but did not see another one until 1990 which came at the hands of Trinidad and Tobago.

To start things off, Kenwyne Jones were first to be dumped by his club Atlanta United, spending only one season with the MLS team in it's inaugural 2017 season. Jones, 33, played 17 games and scored 2 goals for them since joining the club on the 15th of July, 2016. Last week the giant striker also announced his retirement from the game.

Former W Connection right-back Shannon Gomez, 21, also made way after his club New York City FC had his options exercised for the 2018 campaign. New York City FC initially signed Shannon Gomez as a Discovery Signing on loan from W Connection on March 3, 2016 before making the move permanent in the off-season. Gomez joined Pittsburgh Riverhounds on loan from NYCFC for the 2017 season on June 29.

Colorado Rapids announced yesterday that they too will not exercise contract options on Mekeil Williams. The 27-year old T&T defender had signed for the Colorado based club on the 4th of February, 2016, he played in 38 games for them. The well traveled center-back played for a couple of clubs in T&T including Ma Pau and W Connection, he also played in Denmark, Poland and Guatemala before going to the U.S.

Last but not least, Cordell Cato became the latest T&T player to be expelled by his employers. San Jose Earthquakes said they will not exercise options on the speedy winger for the upcoming 2018 season. The Carenage-born player, made 111 appearance for the club, racking up 7-goals. Cato was traded to the San Jose Earthquakes on March 1, 2013, by his parent club, Seattle Sounders. The former San Juan Jabloteh and Defence Force attacker, still, only 25-years of age should not have any problems finding another club with his talent and experience.

Joevin Jones however got one over his club Seattle Sounders when he refused to renew his MLS contract after spending a season long with the club and instead opted for Germany to join SV Darmstadt 98. Jones emerged as one of the leagues best left backs in his first season with the Rave Green. He scored 3 goals, made 63 appearances and is on the verge of creating history with the most assist for a defender, Jones, currently at 11 already for the season. The talented defender also played a monumental part in the club's push for back-to-back MLS titles. Sounders won the MLS Cup for the first in it's club history in 2016.

Meanwhile, with still roughly 14 T&T players left in the USL and NASL leagues and one in MLS (Kevin Molino) time will tell if indeed T&T players are really paying the price for what is considered by the Americans as their most embarrassing defeat in it's country soccer history.

and usually the reverse is true, because we beat them they would normally seek out TT players. However, note, none of these players played a part in that or a few games. Speaks as to those players present quality. Hopefully they land on their feet and get back to achieving their full potential and goals.

In addition, Seattle coach all of a sudden played JJ, a regular attacking force as wing back. He therefore had to be coming from to far back to often. He should have had the same strategy as the semi - or most of the season. The pipe was still stronger, but with TO adjustment , the strategy brought more pressure. We all know what pressure does.. buss pipe, for those that forget.

But according to the sports media, this Capitals win is the biggest thing since Redskins beat Buffalo in the Super Bowl in 1991. But the Caps parade is real impressive.

Coinciding with LGBT pride month celebrations across the world, Minnesota Uniteds Collin Martin made a big announcement that could have positive ramifications across all sports.

In a message posted across his social media platforms, the 23-year-old publicly came out as gay, becoming just the second player in MLS history to do so, following former U.S. Mens National Team winger Robbie Rogers. Since Rogers retired after last season, Martin is the only publicly gay player in the league.

Union trade all their MLS draft picks to FC Cincinnati, deciding draft isnt of much use
https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/union-trade-all-their-mls-draft-picks-to-fc-cincinnati-deciding-draft-isn%E2%80%99t-of-much-use/ar-BBS2GhE


As Ernst Tanner prepared for his first MLS draft as Union sporting director, he did his due diligence watching college prospects on tape and at the recent scouting combine.

He came away unimpressed.

So unimpressed, in fact, that the Union traded all five of their draft picks this year to FC Cincinnati for a pile of cash in MLS' allocation money system.

The Unions top pick was to be No. 13 in the first round, a slot that would have given them a fringe first-team player at best. They also had the Nos. 5 and 13 picks in the second round (29 and 37 overall), and the 13th pick in the third and fourth round (61 and 85 overall).

Cincinnati sent over $150,000 in general allocation money, and will send $50,000 more for the 2020 season based on performance metrics achieved by whichever players they pick.

Though its a headline-grabbing move for the Union to give up on the draft, from a soccer perspective its not a bad thing. The caliber of players in college soccer has been declining for years, as most top youth prospects rise through MLS club academies and turn pro as teenagers.

Thats been the case for the Union as much as any club, and the Union now have a well-established track record of bringing those prospects into the professional ranks. Brenden Aaronson turned down a scholarship offer from Indiana University this past summer to sign a MLS deal, and Mark McKenzie left Wake Forest after one college season last January.

Tanner will hold a conference call with reporters later Wednesday night. This story will be updated then.

All the more reason why we need to develop players locally outside of the confinement of this current TTFA. I keep telling allyuh, TTFA, proleague are not the only game in town.

Happy for Henry, should be a good fit for him and he can build his resume as a manger. I wished Monaco would've given him more time build his team after he was thrown into a bad situation but I like this move for him, a page fro Patrick Vierra.

MLS owners predict league will surpass MLB, Premier League
RONALD BLUM (AP Sports Writer)
The Associated Press


NEW YORK (AP) -- Los Angeles FC lead owner Larry Berg predicts Major League Soccer will surpass Major League Baseball in popularity during the next 10 years and Inter Miami owner Jorge Mas maintains it will be of higher quality than the Premier League or La Liga by 2045.

The pair spoke at the league's kickoff event Wednesday, two days ahead of the start of its 25th season.

MLS anticipates the status of soccer in the U.S. will be boosted when the Americans co-host the 2026 World Cup with Mexico and Canada.

''We definitely have the demographics in our favor, both in terms of youth and diversity. So I think we'll pass baseball and hockey and be the No. 3 sport in the U.S. behind football and basketball,'' Berg said. ''I think we will be the league of choice. I think we're already a league of choice to a certain extent, whether we can be a top-five league or a top-three league will really come down at the end of the day to money, our ability to compete for players.''

MLS has increasingly attracted better players from South America.

''I think the good news is players want to play here,'' he said. ''We're the United States of America. People want to live here. It's an incredible lifestyle. The infrastructure is fantastic.''

Mas co-owns the Miami team that launches this weekend, partnering with former England captain David Beckham. He talked about what MLS will look like for its 40th year in 2045.

''I think the MLS will be one of the top sports leagues in the United States. I think it will be on par or exceed the best leagues in the world, the Premier League or Serie A or La Liga worldwide,'' Mas said. ''I think that the MLS 25 years from now will be Premier League-ish if we want to so-call it that on the metrics that leagues are measured by.''

MLS team under fire for telling out-of-work employees that Pepsi is hiring rather than support them
Jack Baer
Yahoo Sports


The United in the name Minnesota United apparently does not extend to some of the clubs gameday employees.

[ Coronavirus: How the sports world is responding to the pandemic ]

Minnesota United, one of Major League Soccers newer clubs, sent an email to employees on Tuesday that did not pledge to support them like so many other teams and leagues have done while the coronavirus crisis shuts down the industry.

Rather, the reported email told employees they were encouraged to file for unemployment benefits, and that the clubs partners at Cub Foods, PepsiCo and Target are hiring. The email was later leaked to a fan group of the club.

The email was confirmed by the Pioneer Press to have been sent by the team, which defended itself by saying that the email was part of a series of emails to roughly 100 workers:

Minnesota United told the Pioneer Press on Wednesday this email was plucked out of a series of four or five that intended to inform and communicate with a subset of about 100 workers mostly ticket-takers and ushers who work only a few hours at each Loons home game at the St. Paul stadium. These emails did not go to contracted stadium workers in food, janitorial and security services nor full-time employees, who are working from home during the health crisis.

The defense did little to stop online blowback for the message. Other MLS teams such as Atlanta United and Orlando City have pledged to pay hourly workers for postponed games, per the Press.

Minnesota United is principally owned owned by William McGuire, a former chairman and CEO of UnitedHealth Group. McGuire resigned in disgrace from UnitedHealth in 2006 amid allegations of backdating stock options, purported to be worth $1.6 billion. He eventually paid back over $400 million to the SEC and shareholders.

McGuire is joined in the Uniteds ownership group by the Minnesota Twins-owning Pohlad family (net worth $3.5 billion as of 2015), Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor ($2.8 billion) and members of the Carlons family ($2.2 billion).

Minnesota United isnt alone in cutting out gameday employees during the coronavirus shutdown, as the TD Garden owned by the Boston Bruins and leased by the Boston Celtics also reportedly informed its workers they were being laid off on Tuesday.

MLS mulling tournament format, neutral-site games if season returns
ESPN.


MLS commissioner Don Garber said that the league is "focused at getting in as many games as possible" but that the season's suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic will alter how they will be played.

Speaking to ESPN's Taylor Twellman, Garber said MLS is exploring alternative formats to completing the season, which has been suspended until at least May 10.

"From tournament formats and neutral locations, ultimately playing an abridged regular season, but doing everything to get as many games," Garber said.

Garber added that if and when play does resume, games would mostly be played behind closed doors in what he dubbed "MLS Studio" games.

"We might be playing further into the winter," Garber said. "That's even hard to imagine because we had a zero Celsius MLS Cup in Toronto in mid-December in 2017, but we're going to have to push this season as far as we can so that we can crown a champion in 2020."

On Wednesday, however, MLS released a statement saying the league realized that a return to action by mid-May was unlikely.

In the statement, the league said: "Although we hoped to return to play in mid-May, that is extremely unlikely based on the guidance of federal and local public health authorities. Our goal remains to play as many games as possible, and while we currently have enough dates to play the entire season, we recognize at this time that it may become difficult to do so."

Garber added that MLS is closely monitoring its counterparts in England and Germany in regards to how those leagues are implementing testing and training protocols.

MLS has a training moratorium for its players until April 24, but Garber said that would be extended "at least a couple weeks."

Garber also said "nothing formal" has been discussed as far as a reduction of player wages but that those talks likely will take place.

MLS Players Association executive director Bob Foose told ESPN's Jeff Carlisle last week that the league had not approached the union about players taking salary cuts, and added that teams are better equipped than others throughout the world to cope with the effects of the pandemic.

In light of Real Salt Lake cutting the salaries of some employees and furloughing others, Garber said he expected more clubs to make decisions on the salaries of non-playing staff.

MLS announced last week that it cut the salaries of its top three executives, including Garber, by 25%, while also reducing management and other staff pay.

Will David Beckham have the same effect on MLS as an owner that he did as a player?
Graham Ruthven
Yahoo Sports


It was just a few weeks before the start of the 2002 World Cup when David Beckham showcased his new mohawk haircut on the front cover of GQ. Gelled into a central fin and colored with a streak of blonde, the style was something Beckham and his wife Victoria Beckham came up with themselves. Before too long it was a staple of every barber in the country. Even [bankers] in the city were having it, said Adee Phelan, Beckhams former hairdresser.

That Beckham could take something so overtly ridiculous and make it mainstream underlined the influence he held over British culture. This knack for setting trends has defined his career both as a soccer player and a celebrity, and his 2007 move to the LA Galaxy allowed him to combine both as he became the very public face of soccer in the United States.

Beckhams impact on MLS is well-documented. Everything that has grown and developed the league over the past decade or so can be traced, in one way or another, back to the moment the Englishman landed in California. He is without any question the most significant player in the history of MLS.

Now, he is an owner, exercising an option written into his original MLS contract to buy a franchise for $25 million. Together with Bolivian businessman Marcelo Claure, Korean-Japanese tech billionaire Masayoshi Son and brothers Jorge and Jose Mas, Beckham led an ownership group which oversaw the introduction of Inter Miami to the league this year.

So will Beckham have the same effect on North American soccer as an owner as he did as a player? After all, where he goes, others follow. He is at the center of a business and celebrity world that can be alerted to MLSs potential. If he can get city bankers to go into work with a mohawk, surely he can attract a higher level of investment and a higher caliber of investor to the league.

Of course, MLS already boasts its fair share of high-profile club owners. Arthur Blank, the Home Depot co-founder with a net worth of over $5 billion, is the man behind Atlanta United. Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, bankrolls the New England Revolution. Then theres Red Bull, which counts the New York Red Bulls as part of its international portfolio of clubs. New York City FC is operated by City Football Group, the same group that owns Manchester City.

MLS has even attracted celebrities to its ownership circle. In fact, it has become something of a trend in recent years with Will Ferrell, Magic Johnson and Tony Robbins all co-owners of Los Angeles FC and Drew Carey, Macklemore, Ciara and Russell Wilson all shareholders in the Seattle Sounders. James Harden even has a stake in the Houston Dynamo, and Steve Nash is involved with the Vancouver Whitecaps. The argument could be made that Beckham has already played a role in luring many of these names to MLS.

Either way, MLS surely hopes Beckham will make the league even more attractive to even richer prospective investors. While the structure of American sports is traditionally socialist, favoring trades and drafts over a true free market like the one in European soccer, the success and failure of major leagues is largely determined by more capitalist factors. Nothing accelerates the growth of a sport in the U.S. like franchise owners with deep pockets. Only two current NFL owners, for instance, have a net worth of under $1 billion.

The success of Atlanta United since their introduction to MLS just three years ago shows what can be achieved with genuine investment both on and off the field. Indeed, they have raised the leagues ceiling and set a precedent for the rest of North American soccer to follow. More figures like Blank are needed.

Beckham has already succeeded in luring the sort of investment Inter Miami needs to become major players in MLS. Son alone is pegged at a net worth of $22.9 billion, making him the richest franchise owner in the league. Inter Miami might be restricted from ploughing riches into big-money transfers (due to MLSs structure), but such backing will certainly help them capture a notoriously difficult South Florida sports market.

The Inter Miami model covers all bases. In Beckham, they have a face recognizable to the American public. Behind the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, there is a group of billionaires to sign the checks.

Figures like Beckham can only do so much to make MLS attractive to prospective owners and investors, though. The league itself must make changes to its centralized structure if it is to take the next step in its development. Salary caps must be raised, or abolished entirely. Clubs must be allowed to sign more than just three Designated Players. Owners have to be able to spend their money. Otherwise, MLSs growth will always be limited.

MLS commissioner Don Garbers recent criticism of big city teams failing to make waves suggests there is an acknowledgement within MLS HQ of the investment and direction the league needs from big business to progress beyond this point. We have, unfortunately throughout the years, had some of our smaller markets be our most popular teams, Garber said earlier this year. And thats great, but weve got to get our bigger markets who have way more competition, and have a lot of history that theyre working through and working against Im looking forward to seeing them be more successful.

For every Atlanta United and LAFC, theres a San Jose Earthquakes. Its as if MLS is stuck between two different eras: the previous era, when the league would embrace almost any ownership group if it moved them into a certain market, and the present era, when the league has sought ownership groups ahead of new markets.

How it transitions between the two will determine MLSs future. In Beckham they have someone to help. Selling soccer in in the United States should be easy for someone who can make mohawks popular.

MLS extends training moratorium through June 1.
By Nigel Simon (Guardian).


T&T senior mens international USA-based Major League Soccer (MLS) quartet of Kevin Molino, Joevin Jones, his brother Alvin Jones and Greg Ranjitsingh will have to continue their outdoor team training fields for individual workouts, in compliance with detailed health and safety protocols that were created in consultation with medical and infectious disease experts due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic until June 1.

This was confirmed in a May 14 release by MLS who announced that the players will continue to be able to use outdoor team training fields for voluntary individual workouts.

A team training moratorium has been in place since MLS suspended play on March 12 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Players were allowed to begin voluntary individual workouts last week, in accordance with detailed health and safety protocols and in line with local public health or government policies.

In the release issued on Thursday, MLS said it has extended the small group and team training moratorium through, and including June 1.

MLS players may continue to use outdoor team training fields for voluntary individual workouts, in compliance with local health authorities and government orders, that were created in consultation with medical and infectious disease experts.

MLS training facilities remain closed to all players with the exception of those requiring medical treatment or rehabilitation, under the direction of the team medical staff, that cannot be performed from the safety of their residences.

While MLS players are expected to remain in each clubs respective market, the league will continue to review individual requests by players to relocate to another market by car, taking into account the totality of a players situation.

MLS and its clubs will continue to remain in close contact with the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and local health authorities on this continually evolving situation and provide further updates as they become available.

With those protocols still in place, midfielder Molino and goalkeeper Ranjitsingh who are both attached to Minnesota United began voluntary individual training on Tuesday at the National Sports Centre in Blaine, Minnesota, their first session at the venue since the season was suspended in March.

The older of the Jones' brothers, Joevin and reigning MLS champions, Seattle Sounders are also set to begin individual workouts while Alvin's Real Salt Lake will follow soon following two months of individual at-home training sessions.

There was also good news for other USA-based T&T players who are attached to clubs in the United Soccer League Championship Division and League One who began individual workouts on Monday.

Small group settings will be limited to up to four players, with no more than one athletic trainer and one member of a clubs technical staff allowed on each field during a session. Teams in areas where local and state recommendations for stay-at-home orders have not been lifted should not train or allow treatment that is prohibited by their jurisdiction. In addition, all clubs will notify the league of their plans to return to the teams training facility prior to re-opening and training is voluntary for players.

Among the players who returned to training were Andre Fortune (North Carolina), Leston Paul (Memphis 901 FC), Neveal Hackshaw (Indy Eleven), Duane Muckette (Memphis 901), Shannon Gomez (Sacramento Republic), Triston Hodge (Memphis 901 FC), Cordell Cato (OKC Energy), Kevan George (Charlotte Independence), Noah Powder (Real Monarchs), and Leland Archer (Charleston Battery), all in the United Soccer League Championship Division along with Josiah Trimmingham (Forward Madison) and Luke Singh (Toronto FC) of USL League One.

Further north, Canada-based Premier trio Akeem Garcia and Andre Rampersad, both of HFX Wanderers, and Kareem Moses (Edmonton FC) are all awaiting word on when or if their season will get going.

T&T MLS quartet cleared for small group training.
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T quartet of Kevin Molino, Joevin Jones, his younger brother Alvin Jones and Greg Ranjitsingh have been given the all-clear to begin voluntary small group training sessions with their respective US Major League Soccer (MLS) clubs.

This was confirmed in a press release issued by mlssoccer.com yesterday which stated that clubs may begin to use outdoor team training fields for voluntary small group training sessions in compliance with detailed health and safety protocols that were created in consultation with medical and infectious disease experts.

The release added: The sessions must not conflict with local public health official or government policies and provide the ability for players to step up their training while maintaining physical distancing protocols.

MLS issued a league-wide team training moratorium following the suspension of the 2020 season on March 12 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But, on May 6, players were allowed to begin voluntary individual workouts at outdoor team training facilities in accordance with local public health official or government policies with their respective clubs as the league-wide moratorium on full team training remained in place through, and including June 1 (Monday).

To date, midfielder Molino and goalkeeper, Canada-born Ranjitsingh returned to individual workouts with Minnesota United FC on May 12, Alvin resumed training with Real Salt Lake FC on May 7, and Joevin kicked off training with defending champions Seattle Sounders FC on May 18.

But with MLS set on resuming the season shortly, the league has outlined club-specific plan guidelines which must be put in place before initiating small group training sessions.

They include the submitting to MLS a club-specific plan that has been reviewed and approved by the clubs medical staff and local infectious disease expert as well as building on the health and safety protocols implemented for voluntary individual workouts, club-specific plans must adhere to the guidelines for voluntary small group sessions.

Also, during small group sessions, clubs must continue to maintain the health and safety protocols implemented for the voluntary individual workout sessions.

T&T's Canada-based players to begin training soon

Canadian Premier League (CPL)-based T&T trio of Akeem Garcia and Andre Rampersad, both of HFX Wanderers, and Kareem Moses of Edmonton FC are expected to be allowed to train outdoors with their respective clubs soon.

This is according to an article on sportnet.ca on Tuesday which said the decision to resume training was pending approval from their local authorities.

Both Garcia (23) and Rampersad (25) joined the Wanderers after a title-winning season in T&T Super League with FC Santa Rosa in 2019 while 30-year-old Moses is also in his second year at Edmonton having left Finland's FF Jaro in January 2019.

The league was slated to start its second season on April 11 but postponed the kickoff on March 20, saying it was following Canada Soccer Associations decision to suspend all sanctioned soccer activities and COVID-19 directives by governments and health officials banning public gatherings during the global pandemic.

The suspension of the regular-season came one week after the CPL said it was halting pre-season training for all its clubs for 14 days, and since then the league has remained on hiatus. Now the CPL is looking to resume training, although it may be a staggered return.

The league said Tuesday that it and its eight clubs are actively engaged with their respective provincial and municipal governments regarding approval required to return to training.

The CPLs clubs are expected to commence training shortly that will begin with non-contact individual or small group workouts on a rolling basis pending approval, it added in a statement.

All player workouts must be conducted according to the Canadian Premier Leagues return-to-training protocols. The priority of these protocols is the safety and well-being of players, technical staff and employees, as well as their families when they return to training.

Since suspending play, the league has asked the federal government for financial assistance during the global pandemic.

The league has asked Ottawa for short-term financing of $15 million, saying it is working on any and all scenarios related to playing a season in 2020.

CPL commissioner David Clanachan said the league needed help in the form of bridge financing.

The league moved to control costs last month with players having 25 per cent of their contracts deferred, while coaches, inclusive of former T&T senior team coach Stephen Hart (HFC Halifax Wanderers), technical staff, and club and league employees are taking unspecified pay reductions during this challenging time in order to keep as many people as possible employed.

In North America, 22 MLS teams including Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, have started voluntary individual outdoor workouts at their training centres.

Looking ahead towards a possible start of the season, the CPL has also approached the Prince Edward Island (PEI) government, one of eastern Canada's maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Gulf of St Lawrence, about the possibility of holding its 2020 season on the Island.

To mitigate the risk of someone in the league bringing COVID-19 to the province, the league is proposing everyone would quarantine for 14 days before arriving and then a further 14 days after that, for a total of 28 days.

The league would bring significant benefits to its summer season host. The 300 players, coaches and media would be on the Island for 60 days for a 36-game season. The games would be played without a live audience, for television broadcast only.

The league is planning to start the quarantine of participants on June 15, and MacKay the province will probably have to decide in the next few days.

Soca Warriors quartet talks MLS return, BLM.
By Colin Benjamin (Newsday).


T&T Soca Warriors quartet Joevin Jones, Kevin Molino, Alvin Jones and Greg Ranjitsingh will be back in action when Major League Soccer (MLS) returns in Orlando, Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex from July 8 - August 11 in the mini MLS Is Back tournament.

Unlike the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga and Italian Serie A, which have returned with its normal league format, this tournament will have a FIFA World Cup-style with all 26 teams divided into six groups. Upon completion, MLS plans to continue its regular season with a revised schedule.

Newsday spoke with the quartet about the MLS return amidst the covid19 pandemic and their thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement, after MLS recently formed the Black Players Coalition of the MLS.

Newsday : As part of the champions side Seattle Sounders, how much do you think the new World Cup-style MLS format will make it more easy or difficult for Sounders to win?

J Jones: I think its the right format at the moment since they (MLS) dont know what is going to happen afterwards given the virus and if we continue league right away if it would be cancelled. As a team, we (Seattle Sounders) are always looking to compete and win everything we play in.

Newsday: Having played European football in a country that has won multiple World Cup titles, how has that experience already improved your game?

J Jones: It definitely helped my game, its a strong recognised league. The people in Germany are more passionate about the league, its more physical and many second divisions around the world are like that. I thank God for the opportunity to play in Germany because as a kid growing up, I always wanted to taste European football. I was there for a year and due to family reasons I came back to Seattle, but I wouldnt rule out going back to Europe.

Newsday: Is the thought of playing in Europe something you are thinking of doing one day?

K Molino: For me, its whatever God has in store. If he thinks that is my next step I will accept it with open arms. Im in the last five months of my contract so we will see. Family is a big deal for me and I really want to be with my son, so if I have made that sacrifice for him, God is the boss and thats the guiding principle of my life and all my football choices. Im the type to make and score goals for my team so I want to push myself to add more goals to my game for now.

Newsday : Although first called up to the Trinidad team in 2016, it was only last year that you made your international debut, coincidentally, versus birth country Canada. Outside of MLS, what are your career goalkeeper ambitions with the Soca Warriors?

G Ranjitsingh: Although international football is on pause due to the virus, excelling at the club level will only help. So when those calls up come you are ready to represent your country in top form. It was great to come to Minnesota and have a familiar face in Kevin (Molino) in the locker room. So its great to have a fellow countryman and player very experienced in the MLS who I can relate to.

My goal has always been to play at the highest level in North America, which is the MLS, and push to be a starting keeper.

Newsday : Before playing in the MLS, are you glad to have experienced the USL instead of coming into the MLS from W Connection in the TT Pro League ?

A Jones: The USL definitely helped me a lot in my career coming into the MLS. I was thankful for the opportunity at OKC Energy. It was one of my goals going to USL to get to MLS after half of the season or one year of performances. The opportunity has come early as I hoped and Im grateful. Real Salt Lake has a very experienced group of players with guys who played in the premier league, MLS and all around Europe like Giuseppe Rossi, Kyle Beckerman, Nedum Onhua, Justin Meram. As young players, we have so much to learn from them and Im very thankful to be part of such a football club.

Newsday: Being in the USA, how has the Black Lives Matter movement affected or inspired you all as four of the many black and brown international players in the MLS ?

Molino: Sometimes its hard for me to voice my opinion on this because experiencing it is totally different from seeing or hearing about it. Coming to Minnesota I got a lot of information (that) a lot of Black people are killed not just by the police but in black on black crime. Now its time for us to put our foot down and value our lives because Black Lives Matter, but we have to come together as one. We as sportsmen have a big influence and impact a lot of people worldwide. So, I think its important that it starts with us.

J Jones: I think this a good move by the black community. Its been a while this has been going on and we are in 2020. Its time we stand up for each other In my career Ive never experienced none of those things, but I stand firm with the Black community and support it 100 per cent. Im very proud to be part of this league and club where Ive won trophies as we make this stand.

G Ranjitsingh: This movement is incredibly important. A lot of people of colour whether black, brown we experience these things on a daily basis and it doesnt always come to light. Growing up in Toronto, which is an extremely diverse city, I didnt understand racism because a lot of my friends at my wedding came from Caribbean, Asian, South American descent.

It was until I came to the USA going to school in Georgia understanding the history of the southern state and it not being that diverse thats when I started to recognise these issues directly, among my college friends or team-mates.

A Jones: As the saying goes who feels it knows it. So although I was never a victim, its my second year in America and just seeing how passionate and hurt black people out here are feeling we need a change.

Yes, everyones life matters, but all we all black Africans are asking is for us to be equal.

KEY DATES:

Group B, July 10: Seattle Sounders vs San Jose Earthquakes

Molino vs Jones for MLS Western crown.
By Jonathan Ramnanansingh (T&T Newsday).


FORMER MUCURAPO Secondary School teammates Kevin Molino (Minnesota United) and Joevin Jones (Seattle Sounders) will meet in the Audi 2020 Major League Soccer (MLS) Cup Playoffs Western Conference final on Monday.

A brace from Molino in the opening half of Thursdays conference semi-final spearheaded Minnesotas 3-0 triumph over top seed Sporting Kansas City.

One day earlier, Jones helped defending MLS Cup champions Seattle Sounders into their second straight conference final, courtesy a 1-0 victory over FC Dallas.

Seattle are one win away from making their fourth final in the last five years while Minnesota are into their first Western Conference final in only their fourth year as an MLS club. In 2019, Minnesota exited the MLS Playoffs in round one.

Molino is a contender for the MLS Playoffs MVP, having bagged two goals against the Colorado Rapids in a similar 3-0 round one rout two weeks ago. The 30-year-old midfielder has now tallied 13 goals and four assists in 19 games this season.

National mens coach Terry Fenwick has been closely following the pairs competitive exploits on the US circuit and is eager to witness Mondays conference final. He dubbed the pair a breath of fresh air to climax an unsettling year for T&T football.

After all of the issues regarding football, these two guys are flying the flag high for T&T. They alone, and without the national team, are putting T&T on the map because of their professionalism, energies and positivity moving football forward, said Fenwick.

The English coach considers Molino and Jones role models for the younger generation of national footballers.

He is in constant contact with the pair, among other foreign-based senior nationals, via WhatsApp. Fenwick rues the fact that Molino and Jones will be going up against each other and will not be able to share the title as teammates.

He added, The goals Molino have scored have been fantastic. They were great goals with good buildups that he was also involved in. Hes done a remarkable job and its absolutely a good look for him.

"Its a shame theyre not on the same team so they can both win.

On September 24, FIFA suspended the TT Football Association (TTFA) after ex-president William Wallace and his former executive challenged the global governing bodys decision at the local courts, instead of the Switzerland-based CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sport) to remove them, on March 17, and implement a normalisation committee, headed by Robert Hadad.

FIFAs decision to remove the TTFA executive was due to the $50 million debt accumulated by the local body.

The suspension was lifted on November 19 after an October 23 decision by the Court of Appeal for all legal claims brought against FIFA by Wallace, former vice-presidents Clynt Taylor and Joseph Sam Phillip) to be terminated.

In a recent interview with Newsday, Molino threatened the TTFA that he would hang up his boots if the fraternity does not get its house in order before the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers in March 2021.

Because of the eight-month legal wrangling between the sports global governing body and TTFA, Molino said the players have suffered the most.

Arguably T&Ts most talismanic striker of this period, Molino serves as a key asset to T&Ts chances of securing qualification for both the 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.

Fenwick understands the players frustration and called on the powers that be to observe the short- and long-term repercussions of TTFAs power struggle.

Its a big statement from a big player. His sentiments are right, because we all want to move the game on positively in T&T. Were all hoping he returns to the national team.

Football is not a corner-shop business any more. Its a huge conglomerate. World football is huge today. Weve got to take it seriously.

Unfortunately the warring factions on the ground here in T&T are not seeing it for the magnitude of how the games being played around the world and how its affecting players, Fenwick said.

The national coach acknowledged T&T football is going through a difficult time. He believes the squad will approach the coming competitive season with enthusiasm and clear intent to return the national team to a competitive standard in Concacaf.

Weve come to a very difficult time in T&T football and were trying to move it ahead. The best we can do at the moment is take it step by step. Were still looking at resources and finances coming from the normalisation committee and remain optimistic.

Molino double sends Loons to first MLS Conf final.
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T international Kevin Molino made it four goals in two playoff appearances as Minnesota United FC stormed into their first US Major League Soccer (MLS) Western Conference Final, after they shocked top-seeded Sporting Kansas City with a 3-0 road win, Thursday night in the Conference Semifinal stage of the Audi MLS Cup Playoffs.

Emanuel Bebelo Reynoso had three assists, twice setting-up the in-form Molino for first-half strikes before also whipping in a corner kick that Bakaye Dibassy headed home to cap a 12-minute blitz in the opening 45 minutes. Canada-born T&T target, goal-keeper Dayne St Clair made several key saves early on, allowing the Loons to silence the Childrens Mercy Park crowd shortly thereafter.

The 30-year-old Molino, who has 13 goals, the most in one season in the MLS, made it 1-0 in the 27th minute after being played through by Reynoso, beating the Sporting backline with combination play before he calmly tucked past goalkeeper Tim Melia.

The quality of Molino, who is out of contract at the end of the season, and Reynoso then surfaced when Minnesota opened a 2-0 lead in the 35th minute.

The former Boca Juniors midfielder clipped a left-footed pass to the Carenage-born T&T international, who volleyed home a right-footed shot after tracking the pass over his shoulder and toeing it inside the far post.

Just four minutes later, Dibassy powerfully headed home an in-swinging corner kick from Reynoso to seal the 3-0 win, beating Winston Reid to the cross in Sportings zonal marking scheme.

Sporting wasnt without chances, especially in the opening stages when Johnny Russell chipped goal-keeper St Clair in the second minute, only for centre-back Michael Boxalls header to provide a goal-line clearance.

The 23-year-old St Clair also pawed away a near-range header from Roberto Puncec in the 15th minute, keeping the ball by mere inches to deny Russell on a breakaway in the 14th minute.

Only a member of the MLS League for the past four years, Minnesota is now one game away from competing for the MLS Cup, but standing in their way is defending champion, Seattle Sounders, the club of Molinos close friend and fellow T&T international Joevin Jones, who will be aiming for a fourth final in five years.

The Western Conference final is set for Monday while Columbus Crew and New England Revolution meet in the Eastern Conference decider on Sunday, with the Audi Cup finals set for next Saturday. 

Molino is the undisputed playoffs MVP.
By Steve Zakuani (MLSSOCCER.COM)


The first half of this game was one of the weirdest 3-0 games Ive ever seen. Its not that Minnesota didnt deserve it, they did its that Sporting had enough chances to put the game to bed long before the Loons got going. The first 25 minutes of this game left me wondering how on earth Minnesota were still in the game. And then Molino woke up and continued to make his case for MLS Playoffs MVP, and just like that, Minnesota punched their ticket to the Western Conference Final.

Molino is a player Ive always liked but at times he has flattered to deceive. The talent is there, but he can be great one game and then anonymous the next. For one reason or another, hes found a zone right now that very few athletes reach. Hes in a place where everything he tries is coming of, things that take years to perfect look effortless for him, and he is putting the ball in the back of the next with an efficiency that any fox in the box would be proud of.

Hes been the best player in the playoffs bar none. Minnesota as a whole look incredibly deadly going forward and its not just Molino, its their entire attacking quartet of Robin Lod, Ethan Finlay, Reynoso and of course Molino. I absolutely love the way they get out on the break they attack with pace and purpose and look like they have a clear plan for what they want to do. Sporting didnt help themselves defensively, but this was more about how well Minnesota took their chances when they arrived.

The first goal was exceptional. The quick passing and off the ball movement was top notch as was the timing of both Molinos run and the pass from the ever-impressive Reynoso. That was Adrian Heaths team at their attacking best fast, precise, purposeful and deadly.

The Reynoso-Molino combination is eerily similar to the Lodeiro-Morris one that has worked wonders for the Sounders. You can know what they want to do, but its very difficult, if not outright impossible to stop it when its in full flow. They are not quite at the level of the Sounders duo yet because those two have produced performances that have translated into silverware. But, given time, and the current trajectory theyre on, this is a duo that can dominate for a while.

They are the perfect pair because their skill sets complement each other so well. One likes to run off the ball and get in behind, while the other seemingly has eyes at the back of his head and can pick a pass through any defense. Again, very similar to the Sounders duo. Reynoso has been a revelation. I judge players based on how good they make those around them and he is top-notch when it comes to that. Molino is a similar player to what I was: good on the dribble, can go left or right, but he is more than just a winger he is goal dangerous and also able to come inside and play-make at times. There arent many tandems Id take over Molino and Reynoso right now, they are absolutely flying.

Partially a tale of capitalizing on set plays and failing to convert chances on the other end.

The quality of Seattle's passing between both boxes is superior to Minnesota's.

Hard luck MUFC. A game is 90' + mins. Minnesota, stopped playing in the very late stage while Sounders, pressed and played with more heart as a true champion would. Soccer 101. Nobody/defender, last post for Minnesota, off the corner kick when Seattle, scored the winner.  To improve his game, St. Clair, needs to work harder though. Not good goalkeeping, piss poor defending and not holding up the ball were some of the errors that caused them to lose in de dregs.

MLS investigating Beckham's Miami team over Matuidi signing
AP


NEW YORK (AP) Major League Soccer announced Friday that it is investigating whether David Beckhams Inter Miami violated salary budget and roster guidelines by its signing of French midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

The 33-year-old Matuidi, a member of Frances 2018 World Cup champions, joined Miami on Aug. 13 from Juventus. Miami said it used targeted allocation money.

Each team was allowed two high-priced designated players whose budget charge could exceed the maximum plus a third if there was a $150,000 payment to the league split among other teams, under roster rules announced by the league on March 1 last year.

Ahead of its first season as an expansion team, Miami announced it signed Argentine midfielder Matas Pellegrini as a young designated player from Argentinas Estudiantes on July 26, 2019; Mexican midfielder Rodolfo Pizarro as a designated player from Monterrey on Feb. 17, 2020; and Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuan as a designated player from Juventus Sept. 18. Matuidi was not announced as a designated player.

In its March 1, 2020 announcement, MLS said its rules for the season gave each team a salary budget of $4.9 million for the first 20 players on its roster, although teams were allowed to spread that budget over 18 players, and the league permitted a maximum $612,500 salary charge per player.

Designated players carry the maximum budget charge even if above $612,500 (or $306,250 if signed in the summer transfer window).

In addition, designated players 20 and younger count a maximum $150,000, and from ages 21-23 count a maximum $200,000 ($150,000 if signed in the summer).

Each team could use $1,525,000 in general allocation money to buy down a players salary budget charge, and $2.8 million in targeted allocation money to sign new players whose salary and acquisition costs were above the maximum salary charge or to convert a designated player to a non-designated player.

The league did not immediately respond to an email Friday asking whether those rules were modified in the negotiation to restart the season following the break caused by the pandemic.

Miami said in a statement it intended to engage with the leagues review process.

Beckham, a former England captain and Manchester United star, is Miamis co-owner and president of soccer operations. Jorge Mas is the managing owner.

Miami finished 10th among 14 teams in the Eastern Conference with seven wins, 13 losses and three draws, and it lost to Nashville 3-0 in the first round of the playoffs.
