Sporting Kansas City-Galaxy Preview

The last time the Los Angeles Galaxy lost at the StubHub Center, the 2014 season had gotten off to a negative start. Now 25 matches later, it's probably safe to say the defending MLS Cup champions have ironed out any deficiencies in their home building. That streak could face a stern test with Sporting Kansas City visiting Saturday night for a matchup of the last two league champs...

Will American’s soccer ideologies survive the move to the mainstream? By Simon Evans

When I moved to the United States from Italy a little over eight years ago, one of the several motivating factors behind the decision was the desire to take a break from soccer. Covering Serie A in Italy for eight years, pretty much all-day, every day, took me to the brink of soccer burn out. The move to Florida, covering the NFL, NBA, golf, tennis and cricket in the Caribbean,...

Vancouver Look to Improve Form vs Galaxy

For the Vancouver Whitecaps the first four games of the 2015 season have been far from pretty. Arguably the first half of their season opener versus Toronto FC was the most pleasing to the eye, a game they would eventually lose due to missed opportunities. The 7 halves succeeding that first half have been pretty underwhelming. Yet somehow the Vancouver Whitecaps sit all alone in...

L.A. Ex

By Marco Cummings To say the least, the 2014 season was a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows for the Colorado Rapids. Following the hiring of club legend Pablo Mastroeni as the team’s head coach, the club raced to an upper-mid table start, only to lose team captain Drew Moor for the season (ACL). They eventually tumbled out of playoff contention, as the club went winless in its...

Bob Bradley is a fine coach and capable of securing a big European role

Bob Bradley cuts an imposing figure on a touchline. Booming voice. Chiseled features. Wilting stare. And you’d kill for his posture. On Sunday afternoon, it was Bradley standing ramrod straight for 90 minutes on a clear, chilly Portland day, coaching his Norwegian outfit Stabaek in a friendly against the Chicago Fire. His counterpart, Frank Yallop, only made it off the bench once...

MLS championships odds are out; See who the books favor

Since the L.A. Galaxy ushered in the Designated Player era with David Beckham’s ballyhooed signing back in 2007, we have all argued about whether spending big for stars was “essential” or merely “helpful” in the MLS title chase? Oddsmakers have just provided a little more food for thought in the ongoing debate. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook this week posted MLS championship...

Western Conference still strongest in MLS despite new additions in East

Quick quiz: Which team from the Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference can best compete for the landmark 20th league title this season? Answer: It’s a trick question, of course.
