Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports


It's a day of the week, so there are more stories about Jordan Morris. This time Grantland looks at Morris' rise through US Soccer.

Joe Roth may have competition in the "Hollywood mogul funding Seattle sports" market. Thomas Tull of Legendary could be behind the Tukwila NHL/NBA plan.

Major League Soccer

The Impact lost to Club America in CONCACAF Champions League action. Like so often happens, they looked fine over the first leg and a half of the final. Like so often happens, they looked poor for the final 45 minutes of the champoinship. Saputo's team inspired huge crowds and got the city behind their local team.

MLS righted a wrong and took away Jermaine Taylor's red card.

Retroactive suspensions came down and former Sounder Servando Carrasco will miss the weekend. That means he won't be wearing the silvered argyle thing Sporting KC announced yesterday.

LAFC doesn't want good soccer players in their system because they smell like Chivas USA. Nguyen didn't say smell was the reason, but the stench of Chivas USA pushed LAFC to ignore an entire academy of talent.

Other LA can't pass anymore. That should help them deal with not having Donovan, Sarvas or the injured Keane.

Here's another Ronaldhino rumor. It's a Thursday and he still plays when he feels like it, so he's connected with MLS.

Burgundy Wave ponders a larger MLS with less travel.

Union fans are their own worst enemies. Which really sucks, because the opposition on the field is better than they are.

United States

Morris might get to play Qatar twice over the Summer as the US U23s get ready for the Olympics. In addition to the Toulon Tournament the US U23s are playing England and Qatar.

Nothing says first tier sports like expansion to Hartford. The NASL wants to be there. It would be their second city in the Northeast. They still don't have a team in the Pacific Time Zone.

World Soccer

Milan wants a brand new stadium - that's smaller than the current one.

Arsenal are the best EPL side of 2015. One problem, their season is 2014-15.

Newcastle United and other teams will play a preseason tournament in Texas. The shirtless wonders will finally be warm. Lyon, Pachuca, Swansea , Malaga and Raja Casablanca join the Geordies.

Hey, the EPL didn't hemorrhage money last year. That's new.

PSG doesn't want Zlatan to leave yet.
