Every MLS outfit has traces of foreign influence on and off the pitch. Certain sides have chosen a domestic-heavy route, but several others have designed winning blueprints that hinge on foreign players and managers.

On Wednesday, the San Jose Earthquakes continued their surge towards that latter path by establishing a heavily Swedish identity with the signing of Magnus Eriksson from Djurgardens IF in the Swedish Allsvenskan.

Atlanta United has had almost three weeks to figure out how to approach tonight's game against D.C. United, but I have strong doubts that they're going to change much. Tata Martino has his system, their roster hasn't really changed much, and there are few players outside of their normal starters that are making a real push to get more time.

Last week it had emerged that United had met Holland manager Louis Van Gaal and even though the rumours were then swiftly denied by the club, the news was enough to place Moyes' future under a cloud, particularly as an increasing number of fans seem to have turned on him.
