Major Link Soccer: Drogba returns to Montreal

Perhaps what Didier Drogba likes more than anything else is a "welcome home" party?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports


Hopefully you didn't miss yesterday's Sonarfeed FIFA Charity Tournament at the Berliner Pub in Renton, because it was massive fun. I had the great honor and privilege to be the first of Cristian Roldan's many conquests in a 3-0 first-round loss. Roldan didn't manage to score a goal with Roldan, but that's what fans like us are for:

After seeing a number of homegrown prospects get allocated elsewhere, The Brotherly Game is a little salty about Jordan Morris' new Seattle Sounders FC contract.


JK guys, Didier Drogba is still a Montreal Impact(?)

Possibly in an attempt to avoid the former Chelsea star, Nigel Reo-Coker is rumored to be on the way out of Quebec.

The New England Patriots and Denver Broncos/Peyton Manning have met in the playoffs more often than not over the last 5/20 years. Prepared to tempt fate, the Colorado Rapids made a wager with the New England Revolution to see which of their current/former stadium roommies would manage to move on to the Super Bowl for the second time in the last three years.

Denver won (Thank GOD.) Don't be confused by the new official Revolution Twitter handle.

Continuing the trend of football teams making me angry, the new combined home of Atlanta United and the Atlanta Falcons will not be ready for the start of the 2017 season. This will put United out on the streets of Hot-lanta The ATL for their first three months of play. Now they could take the Toronto route and just not play at home, or they could shoehorn the entire production into the clearly-unfit-for-American-sports Georgia Dome.

The new jerseys are starting to appear, starting with Real Salt Lake's "red" home kit.

"San Diego Zest FC"


The Women's team have their own great young hope, the 17-year-old Mallory Pugh. Pugh managed a goal in her USWNT debut. Hey Reign FC, we can haz her now?


Now with France's oldest club, Bob Bradley continues to run through the walls that stand in his way.
