Live MLS preseason video: Portland Timbers vs. Sporting Kansas City

Saturday, January 31, 2015, 5:30 PM
For some fans across Major League Soccer, it might feel like the 2014 MLS Cup final only just ended.

Even as the outdoor temperature for many... Read more

How would free agency in Major League Soccer actually work?

Saturday, January 31, 2015, 12:38 PM
As I write this post on Saturday morning, just hours remain in the life of Major League Soccer's current collective bargaining agreement with the Major League Soccer Players Union. It seems more likely than ever that there will be a work stoppage for the first time in the league's 20-year history... Read more

Manolo Sanchez hopes to earn place in MLS SuperDraft spotlight

Wednesday, January 14, 2015, 4:16 PM
Manolo Sanchez could just as easily have been a baseball player instead of a soccer player. The University City native spent as much time on diamonds as rectangular fields while growing up. But once soccer really took hold of him, it never let go. Over the years, the world's game has led Sanchez... Read more

Frank Lampard coming to New York in July, but the furore isn't done yet

Friday, January 9, 2015, 11:39 AM
I am as sick of the Frank Lampard tug-of-war as everyone else. The rumors and deceit - including at least one outright lie, by my count - have given a black eye to Major League Soccer, Manchester City, New York City FC and the player himself. Now, after weeks of confusion, Lampard has finally spoken... Read more

Union loan Zac MacMath to Colorado Rapids

Tuesday, January 6, 2015, 4:02 PM
It's no secret that the Union have spent many months trying to get rid of goalkeeper Zac MacMath. They tried repeatedly to trade him, to no avail.

The Union only lost one player in Wednesday's expansion draft, but it was a player for whom many observers had high hopes. Brazilian forward/midfielder hybrid Pedro Ribeiro is headed to Orlando City.
