teams are only scheduled to play once in Houston this season thanks to the new unbalanced schedule
MLS rolled out for the 2012 season.
Sporting KC ended the Disney Pro Soccer Classic in disappointing fashion tonight. With a win
guaranteeing them a spot in the consolation game Sporting KC on paper looked like they'd be able to

field against DC United.

My word. I really have hit rock bottom. Lookalikes. Still, you get what you pay for, I
suppose. Man United crashing out of Europe was a serious Lol-cano, obviously.Â Experts are callingÂ
it theÂ worst team in the history of everything. Not just football, everything. Cricket, Rugby, The
pre-Raphaelite movement, cutlery, space, pencils, ZZ Top, the Iron Age, everything And,
for no other reasonÂ other than I can,Â here's Phil Jones looking like a loveable Disney swine.
Roma's American owner Thomas DiBenedetto came out a few weeks ago and discussed his dreams to bring
an American player onto the squad. The tycoon sees the rapid rise of the sport within his homeland
as an untapped resource. After signing a deal to use Disney's Orlando facilities for the winter, an
American player would further help enhance Roma's popularity within the United States.
Do you recall, just a few weeks back, when we featured the Pixar-themed fantasy football kits of graphic designer Martin Turner (@martin_turner) here on Pies?
Well, just as he promised at the time, Martin has returned with a second instalment, this time inspired by Sulley from Monsters Inc, Eve the robot from Wall-E, Sadness from Inside Out and Lightning McQueen from Cars.
This weekâ€™s topic is less of a hot button issue, but it dives into player performance ahead of the Unionâ€™s preseason tournament in Disney. Who will stand out in this weekâ€™s big preseason test?
It has been quiet...too quiet. This week has certainly been a lull in the action. Unlike the jittery unrest Union fans have felt earlier in the preseason, Philadelphia fans have felt more along the lines of being satisfied full after a big meal in recent weeks.
TFC needs time to gel, time to connect and iron out the creases. I missed the first half so I am unable to give you an impression of Jackson, Gilberto and Morrow. Bradley looked strong in his part of the second half. However he was not strong enough to drag the others into smart plays and passes.
Miller Named Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week Cavalier senior forward earns national award after four-goal week CHARLOTTESVILLE â€“ Virginia senior forward Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.) was named the Disney Soccer/NSCAA Player of the Week on Wednesday, as announced by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Steve Zakuani's return and assist should be the glory of the game. That moment put smiles on so
many faces. After many long months of hope Zakuani returned to the pitch and performed admirably.
September 2nd isn't a day that will be remembered as a the Sounders first ever US Open Cup win, but
as the day that Steve Zakuani didn't just play, but played well and was clearly a starter.

On Monday, we showed you how popular midfielder Graham Zusi is here in Orlando with the local
media. The Studio 90 Extra Time Podcast decided to get in on the action, too, and had the hometown
boy on the show to talk about his call-up to camp in the Sunshine State.
Graham Zusi started for the Men's National Team in January's 1-0 win over
Zusi started in the USA's first two matches of 2012, consecutive 1-0 victories against Venezuela
One of the intriguing - and sometimes scary, let's say - aspects of being in Florida is the
opportunity to see alligators. As you ride around the Disney complex, you can often spot them in
the waterways that travel throughout the park property, as several of the players can attest. No
matter what, you certainly don't want to approach them.

So here we are the preseason is over and now we can begin to get back to normal around here with
the season opening up this weekend. Can you believe it? It seems November to this point in March
has flown by with transfer moves, loads of different MLS drafts, preseason tournaments and plenty
of talking points for the new season.
In today's age, you could be mistaken for thinking that's Inter's latest signing. It's actually
the now infamous 9 year old who help up a sign at the San Siro this weekend which read "Could
you win, please? Otherwise they make fun of me at school! Thank you. Filippo."
The Disney adaptation will turn out a heroic come from behind victory with appropriate
orchestral accompaniment, but they lost 3-0 their 5th loss in 6 (hence the sign).
