Major Link Soccer: Everyone Loves Pulisic

New, comments

As US qualifiers approach, everyone wants to talk about Pulisic and Dos a Cero.

Seattle

NBC's Pro Soccer Talk has made the only correct choice for MLS rookie of the year by selecting Jordan Morris.

The Sounders have done pretty well in the post season so far and have hopefully shed some playoff baggage.

According to ESPN, Seattle is slightly favored over Colorado and, as we all know, early predictions about slim victories almost never go wrong.

MLS

Since both sides in the Eastern Conference final are Canadian, it's a lock that a Canadian team will make it to the US soccer final for the first time in over 30 years.

Much to the chagrin of most Real Salt Lake fans, the team has signed head coach Jeff Cassar to a new 3-year contract.

Cassar spoke kindly Javier Morales' contributions to the club in the wake of his departure, but Morales has made clear that the departure was not of his choosing.

Speaking of disasters, Chicago Fire fans were only temporarily pulled from their despair by the success of the Cubs.

Sebastian Giovinco's agent has responded to Italian coach Ventura's statement that success in the MLS doesn't matter.

Miami is really really close. No, seriously, they really mean it this time.

LAFC has put a clear focus on interacting with supporters well in advance of the team's existence. They have invited supporter groups to review and provide feedback on stadium plans.

For some reason, Bruce Arena is hopeful that Gerrard will stay around.

USA

The Midfield Press has a summary of the ongoing expansion and contraction of MLS, the NASL, the USL, and the Canadian Premier League.

In the eve of the upcoming US qualifier, everyone is talking about Christian Pulisic.

Also worth noting is the recent form of Jozy Altidore, who has found himself in a hot streak for Toronto and, hopefully, for the USMNT.

Since we'll be playing Mexico in Columbus, everybody wants to talk about Dos a Cero.

World

In upcoming meetings, the International Football Association Board may look at expanding the video official trial to include medical staff that could stop a game due to injury.
