I can't possibly be the only one confused about Jurgen Klinsmann's opinion of MLS. In the latest move of Klinsmann's "he loves us, he loves us not" saga, the USMNT coach is saying that due to the level of competition in MLS, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey have a lot of extra work to do to keep up their skills.

Next year MLS will be offering select season-ticket holders the opportunity to have their face displayed on the back of their favorite team's jersey, collage style.

The latest city to put its name in the ring for MLS's 24th expansion team is EL Paso. Why would MLS want to expand to El Paso?

The USMNT's U-23s fell 3-0 to Brazil yesterday. Seattle's own Jordan Morris played 82 minutes before being subbed off.

David Beckham recently launched a $60 whiskey. Is this better than his video game or advertisement for Japanese chocolate covered nuts? Only you can decide.

After injuring his knee in Friday's USMNT game against Ecuador, Joe Gyau looks to be out until around January. The Borussia Dortmund winger tore his lateral meniscus, and will undergo surgery back in Germany.

Is Jermain Jones's next role for the USMNT at center-back? Tune in today at 5:00 pm for the US's friendly against Honduras to find out.

FIFA sponsor Coca-Cola is asking for greater transparency in FIFA's World Cup 2018 and 2022 probes. Whether this could bring about actual change or is just lip service depends on who you ask.
