Seattle was never the home of dreams for David Estrada. The former/always Sounder rode the bench more often than not, until the club moved on. And so did Estrada, now becoming a productive cog on the USL Sacramento Republic FC.

Yakima United will host a friendly which will include the Sounders women.

You probably already know what they look like, but here's a link to the current MLS standings. Note how four Eastern Conference teams have more games than points, while every Western Conference team is averaging at least one ppg.

New York City FC dwells in the basement, with a single win to their name. Their Philadelphia Union neighbors are reminding them that it isn't usually easy to be an expansion team. Even if they're terrible, Hudson River Blue argues that expanding to Yankee Stadium pushes the league towards its long-term goal.

The Detroit City Football Club is looking to upgrade from their fourth-tier standing and high school stadium and become a legitimate professional soccer club. The club has had a top-flight crest and great support (considering the level of play) for years, and is now looking for financial backers to help them join either the USL or NASL. If they make the jump, watch for DC FC to become the latest American Soccer success story.

Scoring wasn't exactly the biggest priority for the Columbus Crew 2014-15 offseason, but their acquisition of Kei Kamara has paid off in a big way. The man does look good in a yellow construction cap.

Looks like Ronaldinho will retire at the end of the year, which dashes the hopes of many Red Bull New York fans. But wait! Alberto Aquilani is rumored to be interested in joining MLS!

Rather than be LAFC'd across town, Chivas USA Academy coach Brian Kleiban will be taking his services to the LA Galaxy. The Goat Parade believes that many of the team's most talented players will join him.

Eight members of a Corinthians supporters club were gunned down in cold blood during a club meeting in Brazil. Police have determined that the rivalry match the next day did not play a role in the murders, instead related to ties the group had to a now-defunct prison.

The President of FIFA is claiming that he's lobbying for four full CONCACAF spots in the next World Cup. See, this is the RIGHT way to buy votes.
