Arsene Wenger told Arsenal's website that he thinks the MLS is a good place for past-their-prime European players.
Boy do we love the Internet. An awesome designer by the handle of Skaranger13 created home and away kits for all 50 states.
Sure it might of been for fun, but we all have our allegiances to our home states and these kit designs are straight ballin! Take some time to check out your state's kit and go through the other 103 home and away kits. The designer did a pretty awesome job taking each state's identity into account and it shows in all 50 different designs.
Part of the majesty of sport resides in its ability to explain life. There can be more truth in one good competition than an entire Sunday church service. Soccer’s function as a microcosm of life is arguably the most direct in all the sports - and perhaps that is why the planet is so enamored with it.
Admittedly, I cannot consider myself the biggest fan of Major League Soccer. Sure, I went to a DC United game this season and was aware that they ended up with the best record in the Eastern Conference, but other than that, I cannot say I knew much about the squad, as my primary focus was on the English Premier League. But given the dearth of other successful sports in this town, I told myself that I would follow United throughout their run in the MLS Playoffs this season.
Thirteen U.S. senators sent a letter to Sepp Blatter and Sunil Gulati asking for the use of grass instead of turf in the Women's World Cup.
There is not a country in the world that does not have a dark side to its history. Call it human nature, but the huge strides made by the human race in the past few centuries are rivaled only by its tragic missteps.
Explaining one of the weirdest playoff formats in sports
Soccer in the United States is exemplified best by one word: transition. If there really is World Cup winning glory in the future of the United States Men’s National Team, then the current era must be considered its awkward years. U.S. Soccer is getting there, but it is often painfully clear that, as far as the country has come, it has so much further to go.
It is a typical morning in Joensuu, a moderately-sized college town in Finland. There is a slight chill in the air of this industrial city on the Pielisjoki River as 23-year-old American Nathan Stockie wakes up and plans out his day. He has plenty of time to kill, as he does not have to be at work until 4:30pm that afternoon. What type of work does an American do in a Finnish town that does not require him to be there until 4:30? Bartender? Bouncer? Not quite. You see, Nathan is a professional footballer.
Here at The18, we love DeAndre Yedlin. We love him for his ridiculous athleticism, his ridiculous sense of style, and his, hopefully not ridiculous, upcoming move to Tottenham.
