Major Link Soccer: Dempsey Speaks and Fans Listened

Clint Dempsey is a big part of the Seattle Sounders, unfortunately health issues keep him off the field during the magical run. They didn't keep him away from the celebration.

Dempsey let it be known that now "Portland can't say Sh********t."

One Club man Zach Scott (needs to be put on this list, btw) goes out a winner in Seattle. Scott joins a list of notable players who retired after winning a championship. For Scott and his family, it was the perfect sendoff to a storied career.

Sounders academy product Azriel Gonzalez has been called into the U16 national team for the IMG Cup. This is the third camp that Gonzalez has been called into.

Besties, BFF's, Buddies, Homies, Friends - call it what you want, Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan take the best selfies.

Major League Soccer

A total of 37 players are eligible for Free Agency, MLS style. How many will retire and how many will find a new home?

The LA Galaxy didn't have to look far for their next coach, as Curt Onalfo has been named head coach of the Galaxy. They also acquired the rights to sign Jermaine Jones, a right they will presumably exercise.

Seattle did not lose a player in the expansion draft, but then again are we sure Atlanta and Minnesota knew what they were doing?

Speaking to the Guardian, Seamus O’Brien admitted to $30 million in losses since 2013. However, he claims that the business is fine. No wonder the Cosmos might be finished.

U.S. Soccer

Can America get youth development in soccer right and stop the winning at all costs mentality? One author seems to think the pay to play system is holding us back.

An American has won the Scottish Premier League player of the month. Bjorn Maars Johnsen has been scoring goals in the SPL; can he do it for the USA?

Tobin Heath has taken home top honors for the USWNTHeath was excellent for the Lady Nats this year and excelled with the Portland Thorns, as well.

World Soccer

Last season Leicester City shocked the world, winning the English Premier League title against nearly impossible odds. Now, they're into the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time ever. They couldn't possibly make it to the Champions League final... but they could.

Ronaldo was the winner, but how did the rest of the finalists fair in the Ballon d'Or?

Usually when you are arrested for DUI it means you willfully consumed alcohol. For Yaya Toure it was important that he told the judge that he didn't intentionally consume alcohol - all very strange.

The FA's new uniform deal with Nike is worth over £400 million and will see the England national side continue to don jerseys produced by the sportswear company.
