New, 6 comments

What once was thought as rumor or conjecture is now a legitimate discussion topic by the two federation decision makers.

United States:

Discussions around a jointly hosted World Cup between the United States and Mexico are beyond rumor, with officials on both sides openly discussing the prospect.

U.S. Soccer is going the extra mile by upping their youth teams travel mileage, with the U-20 Women's team training in Papua New Guinea this week.

As many seasons away from MLS come to a close, with others just beginning, now is a good time to take a look at the state of the American soccer player abroad.

With the final roster deadline for Copa America fast approaching, having several prospective players find their scoring touch leaves Jurgen Klinsmann with a good problem to have.

MLS:

prior to their upcoming match versus the Sounders, FC Dallas got back to their winning ways in a method all to familiar to Sounders fans: heartbreaking goals by Walker Zimmerman.

Herculez Gomez has surprised many with his continued minutes in the Sounders starting XI, but if he continues to channel those doubts into his play on the field, it might become harder and harder to get him back on the bench.

MLS's continued growth could be beneficial for the markets that get awarded teams, but the possible stagnation of the cities left on the outside looking in is cause for concern.

The recent move to incorporate picture in picture to their broadcasts has lead to continued to dissatisfaction with Unimas' Friday broadcasts.


USL:

With the quality of play continuing to increase in the USL, so too does their need to find talent, as their scouting network continues to grow for the second straight year.

Seattle:

Guillermo Delgado of the Sounders U-23's was named a player to watch for the upcoming PDL Season.

The World:

Just when it looked like he was out, Chelsea pulled John Terry back in (by offering him a one year contract).

A terrorist attack on a Real Madrid Supporters Club based in Iraq lead to devastating tragedy, with sixteen dead and twenty injured.

Playing in a Legends Match, Jorge Campos was able to encapsulate what makes him so awesome into one glorious diving header-celebration combo.

C.D. Palencia of Spain's Fourth Division took their rallying cry around tearing off their skin for the club to a new level, via their latest kit unveiling.

While being a professional referee may seem like a tough job, being a drunk professional referee has been proven to be impossible.
