Coming into tonight’s game the Sounders are on a 4-game losing streak,...

Club World Cup Prediction (2014)

For those unaware, there is a thing called the Club World Cup. It would be like if the San Antonia Spurs played the champions of all the other continents in a short tournament (I realize I’m changing the format of Champions League and neglecting the rest of CONCACAF, but work with me). There has been nothing consistent, but the NBA champions have played the...

Is Costa Rica Here to Stay?

I’ll admit it. This was supposed to be an England/Costa Rica post-game report. I was too distracted by the Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz (Luis Suárez) biting incident, and then, well, games, games, games.

MLS Single Table and Relegation

I was just listening to today’s MLS Talk podcast and I had to say something about the relegation topic. This is going to be brief because I don’t have much time at the moment. If the MLS is going to continue to expand, relegation/promotion solves a lot of problems. 1) It gives teams at the bottom (and the top of the “2nd division”) something...
