Case Open

I am truly not smart enough about business matters to explain the possible splintering ramifications for MLS and/or future youth prospects from this. I kinda assume they would be significant. Either way, in my admittedly lay opinion, it seems that it would be both reasonable and beneficial for America to fall in line with the world on this particular issue.

Five days after the US stunned the Dutch in Amsterdam, surely they couldn't pull off the same trick again in Germany against the World Champions?

Once again, some doubts have been quelled by the US in these tough European environments. Or, similarly, Michael Bradley is still as good if not better than he's ever been.

Sepp Blatter reneging on resignation shows his power

If you went out in the streets and fired off guns in the air on the day Sepp Blatter resigned as FIFA President, you were obviously premature in your celebration. Or mistaken. Or maybe both.

You see, Uncle Sepp has become that senile man we all love to invite over for Christmas dinner, allow to unwrap his latest tie, but then return him to the senior-care facility that his 79-year old, dementia-ridden mind needs to survive.

May there be a bit of flair for MLS in Year 20?

While there are devotees of the Pro Evolution Soccer and Football Manager franchises, EA Sports seems to have the market cornered in terms of eyes and/or interested parties. Previously they had unveiled that women's national teams would be available for FIFA 16, and in their gameplay trailer, released at E3 (the Entertainment and Electronic Expo), they have a rendered Century Link Field, home of Major League Soccer's Seattle Sounders.

Wales’ victory over Belgium shows they are ready to compete on the big stage

World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Three years ago, I drove across the United Kingdom just to see a soccer match. Stupidly I had planned a vacation during an international break and the one exciting match occurring in the U.K. during that time was the Wales versus Scotland World Cup qualifier. Both countries were languishing near the bottom of their group, but inspired by the intersectional rivalry, I joined the Wales FA and purchased a ticket to sit across from the Wales bench, next to the supporters' group.

We've all been there, suffering at the hands of an interminable video game. The rage. The despair. The absolute f**king bullshit on toast.

That was the exact gamut of emotions experienced by FIFA 15 fan Mario Thiessen, who recently descended into a fit of blind fury after botching a dramatic 90th-minute penalty while playing as Bayern Munich.
