Major Link Soccer: The Mexican Migration

Everyone from MLS is off to Liga MX. An American group wants to buy Everton. And merry Christmas!

I don't know what an Arrow Liver is, and I refuse to find out, but here is a great interview with Seattle Reign's (currently Western Sydney Wanderers') midfielder Keelin Winters. I really hope her liver is OK.

Major League Soccer

After Luis Gil's move to Queretaro in Mexico, the southern migration hasn't stopped. Omar Gonzalez ended his seven-year stint with LA Galaxy to ply his trade in Pachuca (it was a free transfer).

LA is probably pleased with the cap room opened by the move, but there's just one problem: He's actually not easy to replace.

But that's not the only LA castoff. Juninho, the midfielder with a knack for ruining Sounders fans' days, is headed to Club Tijuana for an undisclosed fee. He is inexplicably still only 26. Good luck, Juninho. You are the worst.

When you're a fan of an MLS team, sometimes you have more wishes for your club than you do for yourself during the holiday season. The Bent Musket staff weighs in with what they would ask for in 2016 for the New England Revolution.

Speaking of wishes, or in this case demands, here's what Black and Red United would like to see from the new TV deal that will see all DC United games broadcast on various outlets owned by the same company.

Not all fans are happy with how it's shaking out, but the the San Antonio Scorpions NASL team seems to be like the eggs that have to be broken to make the omelette of a future MLS franchise in the Texas city (Does that make any sense at all? I'm sorry, I've got Christmas brunch on the brain). More details of the next steps for San Antonio soccer emerge.

Don Garber has suggested that MLS deserves more respect as a serious internationally-relevant league. Here's why some of the things MLS does under his leadership undermine that very idea.


This is not the first suggestion that English club Everton has serious interested buyers, and it's not even the first group of Americans who are at least kicking the tires (tyres?), but there's an investment group led by the former owner of the Padres and others that seems to have a lot of money they'd like to invest in delicious English toffee.

Speaking of foreign owners, Leicester City are having quite the year, and their Thai owners would like to thank the fans by buying each and every one in King Power Stadium a Singha beer to celebrate 2016.

Japan has abandoned a national stadium design that looked like the alien ship from the new Independence Day movie and gone with something actually attractive and relevant to Japanese culture.

Just in case you forgot, there is an FC Santa Claus, it is real, and it is adorable.

Merry Christmas! For those who don't celebrate it: Merry 25th of December! Discuss who got the best present below.
