Seven months down in the season, one more to go.

It seems so hard to believe but we haven't seen a ton of Moises Hernandez since May. International call ups were part of the story but so was some not-so-good play. But seriously, just 33 minutes since May. That seems like a massive drop off.

Lots of people want to see the USOC become something more than what it is today. Hopefully a nationally televised game tonight will help spark that for some.
SKC looks to continue their recent run of success in the USOC while the Union just look to get some silverware to salvage their season like DCU did a couple years ago during their awful regular season.
And more on the Union's side of things here in this piece. I guess a part of me is rooting for them.
Ugh. Just when we don't need a good team to be healthy, the Sounders are hitting their stride and are starting to close some gaps in the standings.
The headlining players across MLS (DPs) were all big last weekend scoring 17 of the league's 32 goals. Not bad given the money spent on these players.
Boy these are some serious allegations being thrown out here. More and more, folks defending the NASL seem like loonies while the rest of the US soccer world seems to sit back at shake their heads at them. Also, bringing up the talk about the stadium requirements and what not is a little silly. Sure 15k is a higher number than some can do but I see it as the US just has higher standards in general for things like this. Why play in a 8k stadium when a 15k looks so much better?
From the minute this proposed tournament was introduced I thought it was a bad idea. Yes, the money is going to be there for it if it happens but considering the travel for everyone involved, it just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
Once again, talks of a team on the west coast for the NASL aren't likely to happen just yet.
