When Seattle meets Vancouver this weekend, the normal intrigue of a Cascadia match will undoubtedly be ratcheted up as the Sounders face off against Fredy Montero.

FourFourTwo points to Joevin Jones as an example of how evolving MLS tactics have added more complexity to managing the salary cap.

This interview with Atlanta's Kenwyne Jones has an odd focus on hair styling, but also gets the player's opinion on Promotion and Relegation in the US.

US Soccer

Didier Drogba is soon to be back playing in North America, but it won't be for MLS. He has signed as an owner/player for Phoneix Rising of the USL.
