Major Link Soccer: Return of Cerberus

Gspurning teases a return, Jozy experiences Canadian courtesy, and officiating gone awry in Philadelphia.

Michael Gspurning dropped some news on twitter.

It seems unlikely that he'll be returning to Seattle, but as Seattle does still hold his MLS rights we will presumably receive something in exchange for those rights.

The wonderful performance on Sunday made it easy to forget what the team was missing. Michael Azira also deserves a lot of credit for how easy it was for us to overlook the whole... hole left by the Honey Badger.


MLS narrowly avoided a work stoppage by coming up with an agreement in principle last Wednesday. They are now working towards formalizing this agreement. Apparently, this never actually happened the last time around.

Jozy Altidore had an action-packed debut for Toronto, scoring two goals and earning MLS Player of the Week status.

Earlier this week you probably saw the photo of a Vancouver Whitecaps fan reacting to Jozy's goal. USA Today caught up with that fan and asked Jozy how he felt about the photo. (this article contains a refreshing lack of drama.)

Less publicized fan behavior in Vancouver was that of fans throwing beer at Jozy as he lined up for a corner kick. To their credit, the Southsiders are not ignoring this action and are instead openly condemning the fans responsible.

The match between the Philadelphia Union and Colorado Rapids got more than a little bit out of hand. The rumor is that Silviu Petrescu has been suspended by PRO due to his missed calls. This is unlikely to be much consolation for Philadelphia, as CJ Sapong has been diagnosed with a cheek fracture and a concussion from an elbow to the head.

The events of the match might have you question whether or not the Rapids are qualified to provide input on professional soccer management, but they are working with University of Colorado to do just that.

NYCFC will play their first game at Yankee Stadium this weekend. Their housemates are already fretting about how soccer might affect the field. At least one blogger is reporting a possibility that they will be kicked out of Yankee stadium within a year if they damage the field for baseball.

We are still a week away from the Earthquakes officially opening their new stadium, but has it already been outed as an Illuminati Conspiracy?

David Beckham is preparing to unveil yet another plan for a stadium in Miami. Is the third time the charm?

Arlo White shared this interesting tweet showing what's popular this week on Sky Sports.
