News and Notes


  • The US opened its quest for a birth to the U-17 World Cup with a 5-0 thrashing of Cuba. Jack McInerney has two goals and two assists.
  • Charlie Davies scored the winning goal in Hammarby’s 3-1 victory over Djurgarden on Monday.
  • John Carver has been once again fined by MLS for public criticism of officials. Ironically enough, Carver’s TFC side has dropped seven points to FC Dallas the last two seasons in controversially officiated matches.
  • Golden oldie week as  Kansas City’s Josh Wolff is MLS Player of the Week and Miami’s Diego Serna wins the USL-1 award.
  • Defending USL-1 Champion Vancouver is winless in three matches after drawing with Austin last night. The Axtex tied the match on a goal from Gifton Noel Williams. Williams who has 72 career goals in England’s Championship is one of the bigger name signings by a USL-1 club in recent years.
  • Simon Evans of Reuters has one of the best ever pieces written on the soccer scene in South Florida, the area I have called home for 30 years.
