Major Link Soccer: US Set to Play Serbia in January

It's too early to be bored by recaps of the Sounders' amazing season, and to help you out FourFourTwo goes back even further in covering the eight years of build up to this season.

For even more celebration, the Sound of Soccer podcast has recorded their first post-cup episode.

Stefan Frei has commemorated the the victory (and his save) with a new tattoo on his magical left hand.

In case you haven't gotten your recommended hourly dosage of save replays, MLS put together this montage of how it was called across the world. It's worth watching, even though the video editor for some reason felt it necessary to conflate the Brazilian and Panamanian broadcasts.

Perhaps I alone missed this in the torrent of MLS Cup coverage, but credit to the lone Toronto supporter who stayed to congratulate the Sounders supporters.


The Guardian has put together their MLS end of season awards, which included a couple of Sounders.

Toronto FC may not have won the cup, but they seem to have won themselves a few more fans, and have now sold more than 19,000 season tickets for 2017.

The initial roster of invitees for the MLS combine has been announced; two University of Washington players made the cut.

Jermaine Jones appears set to join the LA Galaxy after they obtained his rights from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for some draft picks.

It's possible that Jones could be joined in the midfield by compatriot Joe Corona, but that would depend on the team finding something else that they could trade for his MLS rights.

Following huge changes in the coaching staff and roster, along with the impending introduction of LAFC, the LA Galaxy will be under a lot of pressure to perform.

Speaking of LAFC, all indications is that there will be another expansion draft next year, despite some earlier reservations.

Orlando City's stadium is coming along nicely, and the team is showing off their safe standing supporter terraces. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit jealous.


The first game of the post-Klinnsman era is officially set for January 29th in San Diego, where the US Men will take on Serbia.
