On MLS: Shea, Barnes should both benefit from blockbuster trade

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

Brek Shea and Giles Barnes were both in need of a change of scenery, and both big-name players received that on Saturday night as Orlando City and the Vancouver Whitecaps swapped the players in a blockbuster trade just one week before the regular season was set to begin.

Shea's career in Orlando started strong under Adrian Heath, but injuries combined with a regime change in central Florida led to less playing time for the former Stoke City and FC Dallas man toward the back end of the 2016 season.

Orlando City will look to keep itsunbeaten run alivewithout the services of Brek Shea.

MLS announced on Wednesday that it has suspended Shea for one match for a foul in last Sunday's4-1 Orlando City win over the Portland Timbers. The fullback's suspension stems from a tackle on Dairon Asprilla that was deemed"serious foul play that endangered the safety of an opponent" and Shea will sit out Friday's meeting with the Philadelphia Union as a result.

Brek Shea has been a fringe player for the U.S. Men's National Team for quite some time due to form and fitness, but his play in the 2016 MLS season thus far makes him a serious candidate to feature for the U.S. at this summer's Copa America Centenario.

Determining Brek Shea’s best position

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

What is Brek Shea's best position? Shea has always been a player with a lot of potential, yet he hasn't truly fulfilled that potential. There was a three season span in which Shea looked like he would become the premier player in Major League Soccer, as he tallied 19 goals in 77 league games (11 of those came in 2011).

From the Stump: The Timbers Need to Get Tougher to Get Calls

The Portland Timbers are good sports. Throughout their time in MLS, the Timbers have rarely been instigators or enforcers. They're never among the league leaders in red cards, and have rarely been the subject of Disciplinary Committee action.

And that's a good thing.

But right now it's killing them.

MLS still targeting USMNT players in Europe? There are hardly any left; By Simon Evans

World Cup Buzz at related • 2 views

MLS Commissioner Don Garber re-opened his dispute with Jurgen Klinsmann last week when he said that the league would continue to pursue U.S. national team players regardless of what the national team coach thought of that approach.

While the comments sparked another round of debate about the relationship between Garber and Klinsmann, the reality is that this is mostly hot air because when it comes down to it, there aren't really many Americans left in Europe to tempt back.

Surely you've heard that before; this is hardly a recent thing. Going way, way back, left back was a mostly unsettled spot for Steve Sampson, then for Bruce Arena, then for Bob Bradley and now, generally, for Jurgen Klinsmann.
