Major Link Soccer: DeAndre Yedlin settling in at Sunderland

DeAndre Yedlin is finally settling in at Sunderland, having learned some hard lessons along the way. This Sports Illustrated profile details how his ability to look forward has aided growth with USMNT.

The obvious joke here is: Should OYO Sports' "training cart bundle" include the entire team?

MLS

Remember how much you whined and complained about the expansion draft? Turns out a lot of teams feel the same way as MLS is apparently discussing the possibility of getting rid of the expansion draft for the next round of teams in 2017. Instead, Atlanta United and Minnesota United would be compensated with extra Allocation Money and international roster spots.

Speaking of expansion teams, it appears MLS has finally given David Beckham's group an actual deadline on their Miami plans. The group has until Dec. 5 to present stadium plans to MLS, which is hardly looking like a slam dunk at this point. Of course, it could also be a ploy to get Miami pols to play along.

The Timbers player you most love to hate may be on his way out, or at least that's the speculation over at Stumptown Footy.

Despite a bunch of teams launching USL affiliates with unique branding, the New York Red Bulls are sticking with "II."

Men In Blazers had their little convention last weekend and apparently a lot of people attended. Hudson River Blue dutifully shares many of the details, while the New Republic gives a bit more of an outsider's view.

World

The friendly between Belgium and Spain was postponed due to a terror threat.

There's a good deal of Sounders-related interest in the World Cup qualifier between Guatemala and St. Vincent & Grenadines and you can watch it on NBCDeportes.com. S2's Oalex Anderson is coming off a goal-scoring performance against the United States and Ezra Hendrickson is an assistant with Vincy Heat, while Marco Pappa is a key componenet of Guatemala's attack.

The man with the beautiful "Gooooooooooooooool" call, Andres Cantor, will be calling the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in the United States after signing an extension with NBC Deportes.
