Roy Larner took on the trio because “I’m Millwall”, also could Jordan Morris replace Romelu Lukaku?

One fan is breaking down how to get the boys back to the MLS Cup because, right now, they are just average.

MLS

What do Romelu Lukaku and Jordan Morris have in common? They are strikers. That’s pretty much it, but our friends over at Royal Blue Mersey are making a case that maybe the young American could replace the Belgian at Everton.

One of the best broadcasters in MLS is Julie Stewart-Binks, and not just because of her comments on Caleb Porter. Style Girlfriend did an interview with her about being a broadcaster and men’s fashion.

Not surprisingly, TV soccer audiences trend younger; in the “no duh” category is that golf’s TV viewers are trending older.

With Ramadan underway one thing most people don’t consider is the impact of fasting on observant players. The Rapids Mohammed Saeid is one of those, but you’d never know it from his performance levels.

David Beckham is finally getting closer to a Miami MLS side with approval from Miami-Dade County’s commissioners buy the land he needs for a stadium. Becks will still need city approval but we’re getting somewhere; the time really might be now for Miami FC.

Up the road in Orlando, the OCSC escaped with a draw after going to nine men. The Lions will appeal the first red of the night handed to Rafael Ramos by Ted Unkel.

A supporter unhappy with Ted Unkel’s decisions had posted his contact info online: one, don’t do that, and two, the club released a statement and I think it was a little Lite Ranch in its response.

We know at least one (other) team, San Jose Earthquakes, is going to bring in a reinforcement, as the club has stated it’ll be a “significant player” announced by the end of the month.

Atlanta United and its supporters have done a great job at starting from scratch and intertwining everything unique to Atlanta, including their music. Supporters will be rolling out a song remixing Childish Gambino.

Everyone is still waiting to find out what exactly the Houston Dynamo supporters did at FC Dallas, but they are getting sanctioned for it.

USA

US Soccer has $100m in spare cash, so how should they spend it? LeagueApps FC has their thoughts on how to spend it on growing youth soccer.

Yes, the USMNT play Mexico next weekend, but before that the Red, White, and Blue have to play Trinidad and Tobago and you shouldn’t forget that.

ICYMI, Clint Dempsey is really really close to breaking Landon Donovan’s scoring record with the USMNT, but he’s maintaining it’s not a primary goal for him.

The new 3rd division of US Soccer is expected to launch in 2018, except this isn’t the one related to USL, but to NASL and NPSL called the NISA.

World

Roy Larner, a Millwall supporter (because of course Millwall), showed his fandom and love of London by taking on the London attackers with his bare hands.

The news of Cheick Tiote’s passing is still fresh, and the former Newcastle man received a tribute from Coming Home Newcastle for everything he meant to his old club.

Los Coyotes de Tlaxcala won promotion to Mexico’s second division for 2017-2018, but due to their stadium being too small, they’ll have to grow it before starting in the higher league.

The UEFA Champions League Final had a pretty good showing on the field as Real Madrid cruised to victory and an equally good showing on the screen, grabbing about three million viewers on Fox/Fox Deportes.
