Houston fires their coach, the US men defeat Ecuador, and Lalas drops some beats

Music?

It's the moment you've all been waiting for. Alexi Lalas has released his fourth album.

Seattle

S2 will be facing Timbers 2 tonight in Portland at 7:00 pm.

At Memorial Stadium, Seattle Reign FC face the Arsenal Ladies in a friendly, which happens to be the former team of both Laura Harvey and Kim Little.

Deandre Yedlin is currently with the US Men's National Team while he waits to find out where he will be next season.

MLS

After starting the season so badly that they are below us in the table, the Houston Dynamo have fired coach Owen Coyle.

A lot of things went wrong with New York City FC's disasterous matchup against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday, but it's probably fair to put at least a little bit of the blame on their stadium situation.

As bad as things went in the stadium, there were even more problems out front where supporters of NYCFC and RBNY yet again met up with the NYPD.

Sacramento continues to push for MLS expansion. Their newly planned stadium would seat 19,621 when it opens.

USA

The US Men defeated Ecuador by score of 1-0 yesterday in front of a disappointing crowd of less than 10,000.

The winning goal was scored by Darlington Nagbe in the final moments:

Jordan Morris wasn't the only controversial omission from the US roster for Copa America. Top Drawer Soccer thinks that the Omar Gonzalez omission was even more glaring.

World

You may or may not have heard of an Argentinian player by the name of Lionel Messi who will be visiting Seattle in next month. Just in case, Sports Illustrated has a long form piece to familiarize yourself with the star. Oh, and their coverage of soccer made one old sports fogey FURIOUS.

Everything that Jose Mourinho does right now is apparently worthy of news. Even just leaving his home is a subject for full coverage.

We'll have to wait and see if Chelsea opts to file any DMCA claims against that coverage, since they apparently own the rights to Jose Mourinho's name and signature.

Vice has focused themselves on one of the most obscure soccer leagues in the world, the Ugandan prison league.
