Quick Hits


  • We will be releasing episode 89 of the MLS Talk Podcast tomorrow with MLS, USL and Open Cup news. Look for it early tomorrow afternoon.
  • I will be at Tropical Park Stadium tonight for the Open Cup game between Miami FC and last year’s runner up Charleston. You can look for my tweets on the game if you have a twitter account @kkfla737
  • Episode 90 of MLS Talk Podcast/Brazil-US post game will feature Phil Schoen from GOL TV and Martin Rogers from Yahoo! Sports and will be released about 3pm ET Thursday.
  • Thanks for all the feedback on our post Italy articles and podcast. It’s a unique time for US Soccer with increased interest in our national team and more and more exposure to international football. Truthfully, as someone who has watched the national team for twenty five years I am probably more critical now than previously simply because I feel a great deal is at stake currently, largely because  we have finnaly gotten the attention of many in the mainstream sporting press and sports community.
  • Former LA Galaxy Assistant Afshin Ghobati has Iran closing in on a World Cup birth.
  • I received my confirmation of membership to the new US Soccer SC today(logo above). I have dabbled with supporters groups in the past and in the early days of the internet relied almost exclusively on Sams Army’s website for information about the USMNT. I will continue to support American Outlaws and Sams Army but felt in the interest of full disclosure here if the issues of supporters groups ever come up on this site, to reveal that I have formally joined the new supporters group.
