It’s been an odd off season in MLS. Unlike years past where there was a definite lull in the amount of stories and headlines coming out of the league during the winter months leading up to the season, there was a near constant flow of announcements this time around. From Toronto FC’s seismic signings to […]

WSOTP Pod: Season 1 Episode 17 I’m not sure if you noticed last week or not, but there was a lot going on in the world of soccer. On and off the pitch, there were nearly too many story lines to keep up with. Not only was the long-awaited draw for the 2014 World Cup held last […]

while the world’s footballing attention is rightfully focused on the bright lights of the europe’s almost-biggest stage this week, let us not forget that the biggest game in north american soccer takes place this week too (1opm est, fox soccer channel). so as we all try to digest both champions leagues’ actions and results this […]

i made a decision today, and that decision is to quit being upset with USSF and sunil gulati for bringing back bob bradley. my problems with bob as the USMNT manager are well documented, though he’s done an admirable job at the last two major tournaments. however, being the smartest retard in our group this […]

europe is in full swing now, with the last of the major european leagues kicking off this weekend. my spurs pulled off their second miracle in less than four months by qualifying “spanking young boys” in the second leg of their champions league qualifier. so needless to say, i’m in a pretty upbeat mood. so […]
