Jurgen Klinsmann Criticism is Meant To Soften MLS’ Shell

EPL Talk at related • 2 views

Our readers have already read a few stories about the Klinsmann/Garber mud-slinging affair. Don Garber finally took the bait, as Klinsmann had spent the better part of 6 months goading him into a war of words.

For instance, Klinsmann begrudgingly took a whole host of MLS players to the World Cup, only to watch them put in some of the ugliest performances the side has ever seen.

DC United 2 Fire 1 - recap and ratings

Fire Confidential | ChicagoNow at related • 1 view
DC United's current season is a case study for the Chicago Fire. After completing one of the worst seasons in MLS history in 2013 with only three wins, DC has bounced back to finish atop the Eastern Conference. By completely revamping their back line and most of the remaining eleven, save Perry Kitchen and Nick DeLeon, DC was able to rebuild in the course of one off season.

A goal and an assist Saturday night from Eddie Johnson propelled DCU to a 2-1 win over Chicago and the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

For the last time in this 2014 MLS regular season, D.C. United wore black. And perhaps also for the last time in this 2014 MLS regular season, television sets across the District wore the same.

D.C. United vs. Chicago Fire MLS TV/streaming, lineup, previews, prediction and gamethread

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

A win or draw will clinch first place in the East for United, who will host a Chicago Fire team that has been looking at these final games as an extended preseason after a very disappointing 2014.

Clinching first place in the Eastern Conference requires just one more point from D.C. United, and it's a deceptively important achievement.

D.C. United versus Chicago Fire lineup: Eddie Johnson a starter again

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

Eddie Johnson makes his return to the MLS starting ranks as D.C. United look to lock up first place in the Eastern Conference.

D.C. United comes into this game with one thing in mind: locking up first place in the Eastern Conference. A draw or a win will do that for D.C. United, and they are playing against the draw kings of MLS, the Chicago Fire, but a win keeps them above other playoff teams in the race to host MLS Cup.

Yeah, so I have had time to think about the Don Garber response to what I would consider Klinsi's fairly obvious remarks about the potential form issues that occur when a top USMNT player goes back to MLS (and other such matters). Calling a press conference to essentially launch a fit finished with a threat toward the national team coach looks extremely childish and actually may be damaging to

Innocence Lost: The dataization of MLS

MLS is wired. The ingratiation of data collection and management tools have the ability to change the game in ways we haven't even dreamed up yet. Could the dataization of MLS lead world soccer into a Brave New World?
