10 things we learned from gameweek 4 of MLS

Here are the 10 things we learned from gameweek 4 of MLS. 1. Why did we play this weekend?  MLS has consistently played through FIFA international breaks.

The result...

Sounders Down in Dallas

A bye week is supposed to bring rest, relaxation, recovery, and resolve. But, this past bye week for the Seattle Sounders has been anything but those things. The Sounders were already expecting to miss Clint Dempsey & Marco Pappa to international duty, but they weren’t expecting Deuce to pull his hamstring just hours after he got to Europe. There was hope that both Tyrone Mears...

Revenge Is Best Served On International Break

Clint Dempsey. Blas Perez. Out. Kyle Bekker, body slam connoisseur and professional retribution artist, out. You at least wanted to see if he’d try again, right? There it is. You can tune out this moment. There is probably a rerun of Married With Children or perhaps a consolation match of the men’s NIT to occupy your Saturday night. I don’t want to live in a world where I can’t...

USMNT returns to Switzerland with progress in mind

ZURICH -- In the shadows of the apartment blocks and the mountains scattered around Switzerland’s largest city, the U.S. national team whirred to life once more on Friday.

MLS should not play through FIFA dates; By Steve Davis

A lot of us in soccer media have said this already. For years, in fact. But we keep saying it because … well, because it deserves to be said. Again and again until something changes. MLS is about to plow through a FIFA fixture window, and every time it happens we mark it down under “bad policy.” National teams have gathered for friendlies in this “FIFA fixture window”...

Around the League: Seattle leans on wide play to add variety and create operating room

SEATTLE In full flight, Seattle presents a direct, potent threat few teams can thwart. The preferred modus operandi unlocks teams with a series of vertical passes through midfield to provide Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins with the necessary supply. It is a brisk and often overwhelming gambit given the movement of the front two and the speed of the combination play. Opposing teams...
