The Sounders aren't the only MLS team seeing their players depart the league. After only one year on the team, the Chicago Fire will be losing David Accam to Stoke City of the Premier League.

Although only 22 years of age, Luis Gil has spent 6 years working at some level with Real Salt Lake. Now the US youth international will be moving to Liga MX and Querétaro

The most prominent potential loss from MLS is that of Didier Drogba. The Montreal Impact have admitted that they are not in control of their star's destiny.

I'm not aware of any MLS stars moving to the Bundesliga, but they are certainly open to the possibility with the league CEO stating that an American star would be  "a dream come true".

While several players have been moving upwards (or at least laterally) with their careers, Frank Yallop hasn't been so fortunate. He is the latest MLS coach to make a move down to the USL.


The US Women had an undeniably successful year with their victory in the World Cup, but has a wrap-up of all of their activities this year.

Michael Bradley is your US male player of the year. American Soccer Now has some thoughts on the selection and the overall state of the team

Finally, the newly-formed US Men's U-19 team reportedly will be coached by goalkeeper Brad Friedel.
