While other clubs preferred to make headline-grabbing signings this offseason, the Philadelphia Union took their time and for the most part stayed under the radar.
Coming off a season where they finished three points outside of a playoff spot, manager John Hackworth, Union CEONick Sakiewicz, and technical director Rob Vartughian took their time and did their due diligence on re-working their flawed lineup.
Manchester United has been linked with a number of players that might arrive to Old Trafford and help Moyes for the upcoming seasons but according to the former coach of the Premier League club, Sir. Alex Ferguson all that he needs is time to settle in.
Sir. Alex Ferguson recommended the club on placing David Moyes as the new coach of the squad but things aren't going on he would have desired and following the number of negative results, Moyes was recently even given an ultimatum of 12 matches for him to improve or else the club will be in search of a new club.
These days, it is common to hear soccer fans saying something like "of course, soccer is just like any other business now." It is a phrase intended to establish the speaker as a hard-nosed realist, puncturing idealistic delusions about the beautiful game with a knowing appreciation of the forces of profit and commerce that are now said to underpin the sport.
There are just ten games to go in the Premier League (that's right, just ten games!) and as the "games remaining" figure ticks into single figures for a host of teams this weekend, it really is the time of the season to make an impression. And that applies for plenty of sides.
This season is rather unique in that respect, because aside from Newcastle United and Southampton both of who are somewhat marooned in mid-table every team has something to fight for as the end of the campaign draws close.
Well Arsenal fans, we are into the last 10 Premier League games of the season. The Gunners had a fantastic first half of the campaign but have dropped off a bit in recent weeks. We are sitting in third place, four behind current leaders Chelsea and behind second placed Liverpool on goal difference. Man City [.
At 6:00 pm today, the news that Alan Pardew had accepted the charge of misconduct was announced by the FA, but Alan Pardew will also seek a personal hearing, as was reported this morning. Alan Pardew accepts charge of misconduct This is the statement issued by the FA: "Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has [.
One is considered to be one of the best young managers in world football, having managed FC Porto, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur despite being only thirty-six years of age. The other has won the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers as a player and has been a coach at Tottenham since 2008. It is strange how, the first manager referred to, is unemployed, having been sacked by Spurs and replaced by his former assistant Tim Sherwood.

¡Cuan bipolar es el fútbol! Un día te tiene en la gloria, en la cumbre; sientes que todo lo puedes ganar, crees que tienes a la mano todo lo que quieres lograr, pero de pronto y sin pensarlo, también te regala el otro lado de la moneda.
Al final de cuentas es algo que en la vida pasa siempre y no solamente en el fútbol, tal vez Monterrey se olvidó de eso cuando se ganaron campeonatos, olvidó que algún día el destino iba a cambiar y se iba a estar sufriendo por malas decisiones, malos resultados, malos jugadores, etc.
U.S. U-17 Men's National Team regulars Haji Wright, Christian Pulisic, and Alejandro Zendejas were selected by head coach Richie Williams in 20-player squad that is set to begin a three-match tour of the Pacific Northwest from March 7-18.
"If fatalism has a scent, Arsenal supporters wear it like eau de toilette." So said Sean Ingle in the Guardian this week and he has a point. Even when results are good, you always have the feeling that there's a touch of ennui rippling below the surface with Arsenal fans. We're always one defeat away from the window ledge.
I just can't believe it! Another seemingly innocuous injury to an Arsenal player ends up leading to another long spell on the sidelines. This time it is Jack Wilshere who is facing six weeks out of action. The 22-year old took what looked like a painful blow to the top of his foot from Denmark [...]
A brief moment of sanity before the next 9 months of craziness.
Putting my cards on the table before I get into a bit of a rant here. For the record, while this writer had qualms about bringing Eddie Johnson to DC, there really shouldn't be reservations about giving him Designated Player money.
D.C. United has shown Eddie Johnson the money, giving him a designated player contract.
Rumors of an imminent deal abounded today, with both Steve Goff and Brian Straus reporting that D.C. United was close to signing Eddie Johnson to a designated player contract. However, these reports were even more imminent than we thought, with D.
Final part of the depth chart for Sporting KC, up top. The three man forward line has been key for Peter Vermes high pressure 4-3-3. He requires a lot of work out of the forwads to be the first line of defense.
Center Forward 1. Claudio Bieler 2. Dom Dwyer 3. CJ Sapong 4.
Continuing to work forward through Kansas City's team, we move on to the midfield. KC saw no movement out from the midfield position, and only one addition, the signing of third round draft pick, Alex Martinez. As with the defense and the forwards, it's been all about the consistency for KC's midfield.
I don't know if I'm already old - I'm 35 now - but a couple of years ago I began comparing my childhood withthe children of these days.
I saw this mostly in the empty football fields wheremy friends, 90% of the children in my country - I'm italian by the way - and myself played every dayuntilthe sun went down, leading to the point where ourmothers would scream and shout to call us back home.
As the last two World Cup winners faced off in Madrid last night, there was very little learnt about the respective teams' prospects ahead of this summer in Brazil although Spain showed slight glimpses of the direction in which Vicente del Bosque wants to take the team through the ninety minute use of Spanish debutant Diego Costa.
In part 7 of our 2014 season preview for Oregonlive.com about the Portland Timbers, we look closely at the team's midfield. It was a source of strength in 2013 due to several player changes, and it would appear that 2014 will only add more talent to an already solid group of individuals.

The Unites States men's national team opened 2014 with a shaky, but still relatively dominant 2-0 win over South Korea from a sold out StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Chris Wondolowski bagged a brace in both halves to make his case for a ticket to Brazil. The San Jose Earthquakes striker scored in the 4th and 60th minutes with assists from Brad David and Landon Donovan, respectively.
Con las selecciones participantes en el Mundial de Brasil 2014 casi definidas, enFutbolFinanzas hemos querido hacer un ranking sobre los equipos más (y menos) valiososque estarán disputando el próximo mundial. Cabe destacar la notable diferencia entre España (equipo más valioso) con Irán.
Yazid Atouba, a second round pick last season who impressed enough in 2013's training camp to earn a few minutes early on in the year was waived today. The move gets the Fire down to 28 players on the active roster, which is where Frank Yallop has indicated he'd like to be to start the season. Staying at 28 will enable the Fire to potentially use two "on-budget" slots as allocation funding towards the salary cap.
Días rojos en Independiente... después (y sólo después) de cuatro partidos sin victorias, 2 puntos sumados sobre 12 jugados, los muchachos del plantel se encontraron con la noticia cuando entraban al entrenamiento en el predio de Villa Domínico. Como los dos puntos logrados (en 4 fechas), dos perros ahorcados y colgados de un árbol, atrás de uno de los arcos de la cancha principal, aparecieron con el alba.
Der Reisebus der deutschen Nationalmannschaft zur Weltmeisterschaft 1974
Als 1974 die Fußballweltmeisterschaft in Deutschland ausgetragen wurde, stellte Mercedes-Benz insgesamt 72 Busse für Spieler und Funktionäre zur Verfügung. Die damals ultramodernen Reisebusse vom Typ "Mercedes-Benz Omnibus 302-13 R Üh" waren je nach WM-Teilnehmer gebrandet.
Real Madrid have reportedly stolen a march on Manchester United by opening talks with Juventus over possible transfers for midfield duo Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal. The Juve pair are considered two of the world's best midfielders at the moment and United have been heavily linked with attempts to sign them.
