Seattle

Reign’s Katie Johnson is having a great start to her first year in the NWSL, and people are catching on.

While you are busy “getting hype” for this weekend, remember that a former Sounder is back in town training with the boys.

MLS

David Beckham may still be toiling in getting an MLS team off the ground, but his play in MLS has not gone unnoticed, as he’ll be on his first ballot for the US Soccer Hall of Fame.

Atlanta United has done a lot to be involved with their community, and getting local celebrities to be involved in their’s is a big part of it. MLS sat down with Mike WILL, the music producer, on what makes Atlanta United.

Brad Guzan is done with playing across the pond, and is ready to join up with his new side in Atlanta. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he appears to be excited for the change.

USA

Bad news for USMNT fans that wanted to see Bobby Wood come to MLS (it wasn’t likely by any means), as the striker signed a new deal with Hamburg SV.

More not-so-good news, Gedion Zelalem potentially will miss almost a year after his U20 World Cup was cut short with an ACL tear.

With the June World Cup Qualifiers coming up it’s time to start guessing who will get a call up; two Sounders are projected to get the call, and they are who you think. It doesn’t matter who you ask as MLS agrees with Stars and Stripes that we’re gonna lose them for a bit.

World

Manchester United is back in the Champions League after disposing of Ajax in the Europa League final in Stockholm, knocking the Dutch side out 2-0.

Leo Messi is guilty thanks to Spanish law, though he likely won’t have to go to prison for tax fraud. All that said, Messi will likely serve 21 months on probation for the three counts.

Perry Kitchen had really started to find himself at Hearts, even being named captain at one point, but, after a coaching change, the midfielder found himself out of favor and will likely leave the Scottish side this off-season.

NBC Sports handed out their awards for the Premier League season and a few names show up consistently, like Dele Alli and N’Golo Kante.
