The answer is yes, but there are some links from people with a more in-depth explanation.

Seattle

LEVYFilms picked up some great footage of Cristian Roldan’s goal on Sunday. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s worth checking out.

MLS

On the list of things that, in context, don’t matter, no soccer matches have been moved (yet) out of the Houston area, though one was delayed. If you want to know how to help Houston as Hurricane Harvey moves out, there are plenty of ways.

The club that used to be the biggest threat to run away with the West has started slipping, and now it seems like a fair time to question: will FC Dallas even make the playoffs?

If you were like me, you bet big on Atlanta United having a great double-game week in MLS Fantasy. Instead, they had a poor showing, grabbing two goals and only one point between their matches with DC and Philly. There’s no reason for fans to panic in the Dirty South, though.

USA

If you like scarves, then this Nutmeg News article might be for you. An old article is resurfacing about how having a scarf wall is the sign of a bachelor pad. Yes, I have a scarf wall.

If you aren’t an Arsenal fan, you’ve probably enjoyed Arsene Wenger’s coaching at one point or another. If you are an Arsenal fan, you’ve probably spent a lot of time incredibly angry at the Frenchman. After the poor showing against Liverpool, it’s time to let him go. If Wenger is let go, what does all this mean for his legacy?

Arsenal is starting to come to terms with how to handle players that are refusing extensions as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is being transferred to Chelsea. A club that really “needed” another winger/wing back.

Across the city Slaven Bilic is on a very, very short leash and probably should be on his way out the door after West Ham has started off pretty poorly.

It’s never to early to sign transfer documents! Liverpool is signing Naby Kieta from RB Leipzig, except he won’t join the Merseyside club till the summer of 2018.

Over in France, Paris Saint-Germain is doing their best to break every finance rule laid out by UEFA. To get around FFP, Monaco is “loaning” Kylian Mbappe to the Parisian club.

As a community, soccer might be the place where we can start to break down the stigma regarding mental health. This piece on Roker Report (SB Nation’s Sunderland blog) is a great read about how it can happen.
