Major Link Soccer: Yankee Stadium is a rhombus

Union coaches aren’t happy with Yankee Stadium and a Swedish club is getting bailed out by Manchester United.

It’s always good to hear someone praising Seattle! Well, maybe it’s more of the NWSL itself Jess Fishlock is praising.

Key Arena’s remodel will have a lot of different hoops to jump through, including tax credits and landmark status.

Not Seattle, but it seems like a thing Seattle would consider doing; the police dog that was fired for being too nice in Australia received a promotion to stay with the government.


Geometry lesson, what’s a rhombus? Yes, it is the shape of the field at Yankee Stadium when it is modified for soccer, at least that is what some Philadelphia Union coach(es) think.

One difference between MLS and other major US sports is the release of players for their national teams. An expected evil in soccer but a stark difference from other sports.


Club America is coming back to the US for a friendly at the same stadium as Manchester United. Except it is a week apart and they are playing another Liga MX side, Monarcas Morelia.

The result for the USMNT on the field against Mexico was great; a road point at the Azteca is worth doing cartwheels over. Univision scored even more with over eight million viewers.

Turns out Juan Carlos Osorio didn’t care for the US playing style that stymied his attackers, calling out Arena’s defense tactics before running to the airport.


The “Road to Russia” includes a stop in Russia for some sides for the Confederations Cup. Mexico is your CONCACAF representative and New Zealand plays the part of lovable Oceania side that will get beaten to a pulp.

After beating up the right side of the USMNT’s defense, Hirving Lozano is likely leaving Mexico to sign with Manchester City. Though he’d play for PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands for two years on a loan first.

Victor Lindelof is going across the city from Lozano to Manchester United, and the £30.75 million deal will help out two clubs - his outgoing club SL Benfica and his first club, Vasteras, who get about €2m from the deal.

Tottenham Hotspurs legend Gary Mabbutt went into the hospital for heart surgery and is doing fine, leaving the hospital yesterday.
