Major Link Soccer: Capos, Capos Everywhere

Columbus' longstanding rivalry with capos is now over. Also, Jeff Cassar's replacement will be named today.

The Alliance Council took moment away from updating their bylaws and reworked the Supporter's Group section with the SGs and the best interests for each side in mind.

Cyle Larin is quickly becoming a great goal scorer with Orlando City, but, if he is eyeing a move, he's getting some eyes back from a Merseyside club.

Real Salt Lake did a head scratcher when they let Jeff Cassar go after only three matches. It appears they are already ready to announce a new permanent head coach, at 1pm.

In case you want a spoiler alert, look at who is rumored to be announced, and yes it is the name everyone expected.

Seattle's largest rival already used capos but now our largest fake, created, organic Eastern conference rival is getting them, too, because they never complained about them before and everyone definitely wanted them.


The USMNT drew in an ugly match down in Panama, but hey, Clint Dempsey scored, so that's cool.

One of the best players in this cycle of World Cup Qualifying has been Christian Pulisic, and as he aims to take claim of best young American, Bruce Arena wants to remind people he was grown in the USA.

Clint Dempsey is one of the best goal-scorers the US has ever had and his success has been chronicled here on SaH, but we aren't alone in telling his goal-scoring legacy.

Not all things USA-related need to be USMNT-related, right? Didier Drogba is back in US news! He appears to be signing with Phoenix Rising FC of the USL, joining the elder statesmen portion of the squad that already includes Omar Bravo and Shaun Wright-Phillips.


US soccer talent is starting to get recognized in Europe, with teams taking shots on American youngsters, especially Schalke.

Cursing at a referee might get you a card, cursing at assistant ref even less likely in most matches, but Leo Messi learned the hard way that sometimes abusing a sideline referee will get you a four match suspension.

CONCACAF was not alone in playing World Cup Qualifiers; every federation did, with AFC and Oceania getting close to locked up after this break's matches.

Obafemi Martins can heat up a stadium with his play, as we well know. In Seattle it meant goals and flame throwers though his current club, Shanghai Shenhua, likely will request no flame throwers for the time being after their stadium caught fire.

Unfortunately there are only a handful of professional games globally and only one remotely accessible for US viewers.
