MLS ’13 Extra – NASL Preview

While we tend to focus on Major League Soccer and the National Team on this blog, we also like to pay tribute to the other competitions that are staged in this country and our neighbors to the north, Canada. In that spirit we preview the North American Soccer League. The NASL, after two solid seasons of rebirth as the USSF’s 2nd tier, enters a new chapter in their progression as they have changed their scheduling structure for the 2013 season. This idea for split seasons has been adopted from leagues that start in Mexico and go all the way south ... Read more

MLS ’13 – A Pivotal Year For Landon Donovan

When we’re starting to take down those 2013 calendars in order to prepare for 2014, one would imagine that the landscape for the US Men’s National Team and Major League Soccer could be quite different than it is right now. We’ve been waiting to hear what America’s most heralded player, Landon Donovan, was going to do in 2013. That news finally came across the wire on Sunday, as it appears Donovan will soon make his return to the playing field. He will be rejoining the Los Angeles Galaxy to train towards the end of March, a development that will no ... Read more

Remaining Matches Draw, Lessen The Sting Of US Loss

The result in the afternoon tilt between the USA and Honduras was not a pretty one. After reasonably positioning themselves in the first half, the second stanza could have been brilliant with a second goal or at least a possible draw. But as we all saw, the mental mistakes coupled with inspired play from Honduras dropped the US. Los Catrachos grabbed the full three points. But while USA supporters resigned themselves to the thought they had already fallen three behind multiple teams with the loss in Honduras, something strange happened later that evening. Out of nowhere, we saw the remaining two ... Read more

We try to follow their process through the internet and try to discuss the positives or the negatives of their performance.   Altidore, the subject of racist actions in Holland But when an unfortunate situation comes up, you would assume it’s a nasty injury that could sideline them for a couple of months. Sadly that’s not the case when it came to Jozy Altidore in a KNVB Dutch ... Read more
