Major Link Soccer: Tragedy in Bucharest

Orlando City uses a lot of words to say nothing, Scurry should be in the Hall of Fame and more than a dozen other soccer stories for your Saturday.


'Pinoe's new clothing line wants you to be the best you.


Orlando City and Stoke City have an official partnership of gobbley-gook that replaces their unofficial partnership of sharing ownership.

Alejandro Bedoya is probably coming to MLS during the next two transfer windows. Atlanta United may be a good fit.

Former Sounders forward/midfielder Shalrie Joseph was once the greatest central midfielder in the league. Few people remember this because his final days were wandering around chasing money with Seattle and Chivas USA, rather than saying goodbye to New England Revolution fans. Shalrie wants to finally say goodbye.

The Glass House down in Portland is turning a profit for the city. That's impressive and rare.

Atlanta is going to start their 2017 with a substantial road trip. They look to Toronto for hope... poor guys.

Red Bull New York earned a point because Thierry Henry is a ghost.

The Columbus Crew wanted a player from Egypt but Ismaily rejected the transfer fee.

BMO is bigger, better (maybe)and Toronto FC might just be good.

LAFC is going to have a stadium. Miami isn't, still.

United States National Team

Briana Scurry didn't make the Hall of Fame this year. It's getting kind of stupid, because she clearly belongs in it. The problem may be the voting process rather than the keeper's resume.

World Soccer

Just a story about the Russia Mafia (no one talks about the Italian Bratva, do they?) infiltrating soccer clubs. Go on about your business and do not ask questions.

Venezeula's girls U17 soccer team dealt with challenges beyond mere soccer on their way to winning the CONMEBOL tournament. You also should read Unusual Effort's look at the best comebacks in CAF history.

Liverpool's 26,000 season ticket holders and other fans will only get 10,000+ seats in the Europa League final. Some people are outraged.

DeAndre Yedlin might have saved Sunderland from relegation. If they win their match on Wednesday they cannot go down.

Arlo White talks about Leicester, which challenges me to type Leicester.

"It feels like it's happening in a parallel universe," White said in a phone interview Friday. "It's so surreal, so incredible, so fantastic. Leicester fans, I think, have had the greatest experience of their lives. The nerves have been settled, the panic is over, the anxiety can be put on the back-burner.

"They can show up at the King Power Stadium tomorrow to full enjoy what will be the best day in the club's history and the best day in a lot of people's lives."

Patrick Ekeng started his Friday knowing he would play soccer for Dinamo Bucharest. Sadly, Ekeng is now no longer with us. The Cameroon national collapsed and died during the game.
