Seattle

We are now just a few days away from the 22nd MLS Cup and second straight featuring Seattle Sounders FC and Toronto FC. MLSsoccer did a position by position breakdown. Apparently, they feel Toronto is the better team.

We all know the story of how Clint Dempsey had to miss the final last year after being shutdown due to a heart issue. This time around, Clint hopes to be more than just a cheerleader.

This year’s MLS Cup will have some added angles this year. There will be helicopters and coaches will be mic’d up. Let’s hope that nobody says any dirty words and lets also hope that ESPN doesn’t miss the winning goal. Yeah, I’m talking to you FOX Sports.

We don’t know if the Crew will be in Columbus come 2018. However, we do know that some version of the Crew will be the same. Columbus announced that they secured a permanent deal for Artur after he spent the last year on loan from Sao Paolo FC.

It sounds like Drew Moor almost became a member of the Philadelphia Union before eventually signing with Toronto prior to the 2016 MLS season. He;s been huge in helping turn around Toronto’s defense the last two years.

Russell Teibert will remain with the Vancouver Whitecaps after signing a new three-year deal on Wednesday.

I have a real hard time putting this here. In case you missed it, former Seattle Reign FC head coach Laura Harvey was named the first head coach of the newest NWSL team, the Utah Royals. Take a look at how she became their first coach.

It’s not often that a professional English soccer player plays in Argentina. Wait, it’s never happened. That is until David Olaoye decided to give it a try. He talks about why he did it.
