Uber might need to become a branding partner of the Tacoma Rainiers after four members of the team couldn’t get a flight from Phoenix to Albuquerque so they took a $683 ride together.

MLS

Greg Vanney may not have won a MLS Cup yet (though his side did get the more shots in one), but he was kept over hiring Jason Kreis for 2016 after being bounced from the 2015 playoffs.

Who would you put in your MLS Best XI for the first half of the season? Hint: if you didn’t pick a Sounder, you might work for MLS (or just be a bit realistic right now).

USL attendance is creeping upwards and while S2 is not near the top, Louisville City FC broke the 10k barrier when hosting rivals FC Cincinnati.

With the group stage of the Gold Cup over, it’s time to step back and look at each player’s stock going forward with the USMNT. One Sounder went up, one went down, and it makes no sense to me.

The Chicago Red Stars coach has opinions on Star Wars. I still haven’t seen most of them and find them boring, so I have no more bad opinions on them. Go read Rory Dames’ thoughts.

Hype about Christian Pulisic is not slowing down, nor should it after this dominance in a friendly against AC Milan.

Monday seemed so calm when PSG merely seemed to be willing to pay for Neymar. It has very quickly become a reality and the deal is almost done.

After grabbing a red card and some injuries, Jose Mourinho’s side had some time to reflect on their friendly against RSL, noting that MLS is getting better.

Ever quit your job and then ask for it back hours later? That’s what Antonio Cassano did with Hellas Verona and against common belief, he gets to keep it!
