Seattle

Despite our most recent result Lodeiro's impact on the team has still been enormous. Four Four Two goes as far as to describe it as historic in the context of MLS midseason signings.

The official Sounders site asks the (presumably rhetorical) question of if the Sounders defensive line will see a shakeup during this break. With the return of Roman Torres, it seems all but inevitable.

Hope Solo has determined that she will not play in the NWSL for at least the rest of this season.

MLS

Nigel De Jong's move to Turkish club Galatasaray is now official. The Nutmeg views the move through much the same lens as many MLS fans. Oddly, that satirical post may be more respectful of the player than the official MLS farewell video.

In a less expected blow to the Galaxy, it has been determined that Gyasi Zardes will miss the rest of the season due to injury.

With the sudden loss of two significant players, LA is going to have to make some adjustments.

Will Johnson can't understand why he wasn't called up for the Canadian National team. I'm sure that we all feel extremely sorry for him.

Chicago Fire fans continue to hope for a change of ownership. Hot Time In Old Town has provided a list of reasons for the current owners to sell the team.

When New York City FC was at the top of the table, it was primarily due to the strength of their road record. This makes it all the more problematic for them that they are winless in their last 5 road matches.

Robbie Keane went out on a high note scoring a fantastic goal in his last match representing Ireland.

USA

The US National Team match tomorrow against St. Vincent and Grenadines is likely to see a head-to-head Sounder matchup between Jordan Morris and Oalex Anderson, who scored the only goal for his side the last time they met the US.

The biggest tactical question for the US Men is much the same as it is for the Sounders. How will they adjust to missing Clint Dempsey?

Another MLS player that will be missing from the lineup is Jermaine Jones, who has left the camp to continue with his rehab.

With her recent ban and her decision not to play for the NWSL, the next question is if Hope Solo will ever play for the National Team again.

Heather O'Reilly is set to leave the squad under much better circumstances. She has announced her retirement after 15 years of play.

Jurgen has finally commented on earlier rumors that he was in the running for the open position to manage England.

World

Fox Sports' continued efforts to court soccer fans are not going that well. Their ratings for Bundesliga matches continue to decline.

It's been a while since we've talked about Qatar's progress preparing for the World Cup. It seems that everything continues to be on track, despite some economic downturn.
