In this edition of me telling MLS coaches and GM's how to improve their side (fun times!), we will only cover three clubs. But these are three of the most consistently competitive teams around, and each is looking good again this season.Over the last decade, today's trio has combined to chalk up two league crowns, another pair of MLS Cup appearances, three Supporters Shields and four US Open Cup

In what may be his last game for loan side Vitesse, Matt Miazga helped earn them a Europa League invite for the fall by scoring in their final tie-clinching 2-1 win at FC Utrecht on Sunday night. The well-buried header accounted for his fourth goal of the season, easily a new career best for the US defender.

Caretaker USMNT boss Dave Sarachan has summoned 22 players to camp to prepare for next Monday's friendly with Bolivia in Philly. I really can't have complaints about who was called on this type of roster (though I will have plenty to share if this squad ends up playing another old-style 4-4-2) . It's just a shame that guys like Amon and Saief are on the mend, and must miss out.

Some may argue that a couple other teams should be mentioned along the mighty best of the East, but I'm limiting this group to proven MLS Cup contenders.Atlanta UnitedYes, the Five Stripes are generally riding a steamroller early in the season. And yet, one couldn't help but worry about their postseason prospects if they don't replace the offseason sale of Carmona.

Talk about good camera timing. Watch how the Timbers Army experienced Samuel Armenteros' late winner against LAFC on Saturday. *RAW* video of Timber Jim leading You Are My Sunshine and that magical @SamArmenteros Sunshine Goal (plus an appearance on the capo stand). Too awesome not to share. #RCTID #PORvLAFC pic.

I actually meant to start this mini-series last Monday, but that's just how busy work and family matters have been. Let's get straight to business, which is picking that one particular thing every MLS club requires to raise their game. Everybody can use something to improve, right? Some of them are obvious, some are a battle royale of problems.

Always leave 'em wanting more...

In the final game of his Greuther Fürth loan spell, Julian Green fired a nifty loan goal winner at Heidenheim that clinched 2.Bundesliga survival for his temporary employers. Not bad for a goodbye. - Greg Seltzer

The Zlatan-ification of American entertainment is well underway, folks. Not to be outdone by their current superstar, former Galaxy glamour boy David Beckham makes an amusing cameo with Ryan Reynolds in a Deadpool 2 promotional clip. - Greg Seltzer

We had a pair of Americans light lamps overseas this past weekend. We'll start with Matt Miazga, who struck while wearing the Vitesse armband for the first time. It was his third goal of the season, and helped post a 2-2 draw at Willem II on Sunday. The other weekend scorer was Sundsvall winger Romain Gall, who continued his torrid start to the campaign with a consolation double as their

We conclude this post-storm with something truly important. In case you missed this on Tuesday ... On the next... Arrested Development — Arrested Development (@arresteddev) May 1, 2018 That's a big game brace of info if I ever saw one. And then, yesterday, Ron Howard comes along to complete a spectacular Arrested Development hat trick.

The second order of return business is the small slew of goals scored by Americans playing in Europe this past weekend. I know we're almost to the next round by now, but a lot of folks probably missed at least some of these. We'll start in Denmark, young FC Nordsjælland winger Jonathan Amon scored a terrific opener in what would eventually turn out to be a 3-1 loss at tabletop Bröndby.

Will Ferrell hits the bullseye.

We are now back from a long vacation in the Netherlands. I can't describe how good it was to be roaming the streets of Amsterdam on a bike again. And to be back at my home studio for some killer classes. And and and, you get the idea. But now it's time to return to business, so I'll start catching up with a trio of quick posts.

This should be interesting.

We had a trio of goals from our ex-pats last night, including Rubio Rubin's debut strike for Tijuana. It capped an 3-0 important win for the playoff-hunting hosts (and perhaps tenderized Chivas for Toronto FC a little). Elsewhere, Jann George hopped off the bench at halftime to strike a decisive double in Jahn Regensburg's win at Greuther Fürth.
