It sure looks like Joevin Jones wants to return to Sounders

The former Sounders left back is dropping some strong hints on Instagram. Joevin Jones left the Seattle Sounders last offseason on somewhat questionable terms, basically going AWOL at one point and apparently upset with how his contract negotiations were handled. But less than a year after joining 2. Bundesliga side SV Darmstadt 98, Jones is dropping some pretty strong hints that he might want to come back. In comments on two different Instagram posts by Cristian Roldan and Osvaldo Alonso, Jones expressed a desire to play for the Sounders again. Of course,...

Sounder Data: Is MLS losing its parity?

If you feel like the gap between the best and the worst is growing, you’re not wrong. Greetings, compatriots! This is shaping up to be quite the season, isn’t it? Teams around MLS are breaking records for both success and failure in 2018. Wednesday was the perfect example. We saw the Sounders, a team who now holds the record for consecutive regulation wins and consecutive playoff appearances, versus Orlando City SC, a team who now holds the record for worst-ever defense by goals allowed. Two teams are on pace to break the best points-per-game this year too: Atlanta United and New York...

Already a playoff lock, FC Dallas isn't taking it easy: 'We have ... the possibility in our hands to control our destiny'

Already a playoff lock, FC Dallas isn't taking it easy: 'We have ... the possibility in our hands to control our destiny'

FRISCO -- With two matches left in the MLS regular season, the math can get a little complicated as teams try to figure out what they need to happen to get their preferred playoff seed - or get into the postseason at all. FC Dallas knows it will be playing on and now has its sights set on finishing atop the Western Conference. With a one point lead atop the table, FCD isn't doing any calculations ahead of Sunday's showdown with second-place Sporting Kansas City. "I think it's quite simple. It's the final of the conference, so we're going to approach it like that," center back Reto Ziegler...

The Coddling of the American Soccer Mind

The Coddling of the American Soccer Mind

There are a couple refrains I'm tired of hearing from U.S. men's soccer pundits/apologists during and after the two most recent international breaks. The first is the caveat, "Yeah, but it's Brazil." Or "Colombia." Or basically any other opponent from anywhere on the planet except CONCACAF and most of Asia. As if those teams are simply untouchable.Granted, Brazil was clearly the better team when they beat the U.S. 2-0 last month - as Brazil clearly has been for pretty much always. But at the same time, we're not talking about 1970 Brazil here. It hasn't won the World Cup since 2002, when it...

The Vancouver Whitecaps play their final away match of the 2018 season. We scout the LAFC match, and sit down with Alicia Rodriguez to get her insights on LA’s inaugural season...and some familiar faces. Los Angeles Football Club Scouting Report LAFC are a potent club in their inaugural season. They are second in league scoring, only two behind Atlanta United FC (67 to 65), and have three players with 10+ goals. Behind them are two good playmakers in Feilhaber and Nguyen.
