New, 111 comments

The Colombian is rumored to MLS, but we’re not sure where. Also some great stories about sports losses as a child.

Seattle

S2 has a time change coming up; their August match at T2 is moving from August 18th to 17th. It’s probably related to the Timbers moving their August 20 match against the Red Bulls to the 18th.

Kevin Parsemain, the Gold Cup hero and Sounders legend, is about to take on the USMNT.

Some people would like to know what’s going on with the Sounders Community Trust, and I completely get that.

MLS

With the transfer window open, what does every MLS team need? Also what is the likelihood each club makes a splash? Seattle is well a “no duh” to make one.

An option for teams that need winger help: Dilly Duka. Besides having a great name, the rarely used player for the Crew was waived by Gregg Berhalter’s side just as the window opened.

Plenty of MLS players are good. Some of those are underrated, and some of them are named Miguel Almiron and Josef Martinez.

LAFC still needs someone at a helm for 2018 and Guillermo Barros Schelotto is the big target that is now reportedly unavailable.

The league will eventually need to make a decision on who gets to join in the final four expansion spots, and right now there’s a couple frontrunners.

Juan Quintero is tied to MLS again, and this time it’s with Chicago Fire. The Fire seem to be doing something right, we’ll see if they’ve got the allocation money to buy down David Accam and get the deal done.

Hot Time in Old Town are less bullish on the rumor and, while it appears Quintero is heading to MLS, it might not be Chicago. I’d like him in Seattle, though after yesterday’s comments on James and his signing, this means that he’ll sign with Bayern instead.

It’s not the most detailed review, but if you want to know about all the options of soccer in New York (not New Jersey), and how they compare, an NYT reporter has you covered.

Up north, 86Forever is having Supporters Week. The first part of the series focuses on what Fan Services with the club sees this all as.

USA

If you think there is a double-standard between Bruce Arena and Jurgen Klinsmann then...you’re wrong! Well, you might be right, but Arena gets his grace period, or something like that.

One of the USL III teams appears to be going to Fort Wayne, Indiana. With interest and a bunch of millennials, the city seems like a great place for a new USL III side.

Real Madrid is coming the US to face the league’s “best”. we already know that James Rodriguez isn’t coming, but who is and isn’t seeing the bright lights of the MLS All-Star game?

Klinsmann’s German trial was a success and now he’s got a new job. Oh, it’s Jonathan and not Jurgen, and it’s at Hertha Berlin.

SBNation writers summed up their worst loss as a child in sports, and there are some pretty good stories in here. If you feel like sharing yours, please do.

Frank Lampard has a lot of money and in turn owns a lot of houses. One of those pads is rented to a... just read the article because it’s funny and leaves me without words.

Wayne Rooney is out at United and the now longest tenured player, Michael Carrick, has been named captain.
