A fairly blockbuster MLS “trade” happened Tuesday afternoon, as Kansas City sent longtime striker Dom Dwyer over to relative league newcomers Orlando, who had been trying to acquire Dwyer for years.
Major League Soccer, the famously cowardly league so afraid of things like “competition” and “risk” and “good ideas that might hurt some obscenely rich guys a little in the short term but will reap immeasurable rewards in the future” that it concocted up some bullshit closed-league format to encase its teams in safe,…
Hector Villalba blasted a long-range, 86th-minute goal that proved to be the winner as Atlanta United beat Orlando City in a match that saw the visitors place a taunting billboard in central Florida, only to see that billboard defaced by Orlando City supporters.
In U.S. Open Cup action, second-tier clubs Miami FC and FC Cincinnati each played one of the biggest games of their existence. Miami took on newly formed MLS side Atlanta United, while Cincy battled the second-place MLS Chicago Fire—and both came up winners.
Clint Dempsey silenced a Portland crowd—briefly, before they picked up a chant telling him to fuck himself—with a stoppage-time goal that earned his Seattle Sounders a 2-2 draw in their rivalry matchup against the Timbers.
Just over 30,000 people filled Nippert Stadium last week to watch FC Cincinnati upset the Columbus Crew 1-0. It was a huge victory for the nascent USL squad as they eye an expansion bid to join Columbus in MLS. But a move to America’s top tier comes at a cost: A new stadium.
Orlando City SC forward Cyle Larin was arrested early this morning for driving under the influence after driving on the wrong side of the road in Orlando.
These junk-grabbing Orlando City supporters were not successful in keeping NYCFC from opening the scoring on a PK early in today’s nationally-broadcast MLS match.
Miami has not had an MLS team since the Miami Fusion closed down in 2001. A joint bid between Barcelona and Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure failed in 2009, and the league stayed out of Florida until Orlando SC entered the league in 2015. Five years ago, MLS czar Don Garber first broached the idea of plopping an…
The MLS players’ union, as it does every year, released the salaries for all of its current players today. Former Real Madrid legend and Orlando City SC midfielder Kaka once again topped the list for highest paid players with $7.17 million in guaranteed compensation.

Tim Howard has been suspended three games by MLS for what the league is calling an “inappropriate fan interaction”—in this case, telling a fan to “fuck your mother” or some variation thereof.
NYCFC had a one-goal lead late in their road game against the Philadelphia Union this evening. David Villa made sure they took home the full three points with a ridiculous chip from 50-55 yards out.
Former Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has been making the seemingly requisite rounds on the European star retirement circuit for a few years now. In 2012, he signed with Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua; in 2013, still an able contributor, he joined Galatasaray for a spell; he returned to Chelsea in 2014 for a…
FC Dallas trailed Liga MX club Pachuca 2-1 in the second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal on Tuesday night, but with the score tied 3-3 on aggregate and 1-1 on away goals in its final minute, it looked destined for extra time.
St. Louis is one of 12 cities vying a spot in the next round of MLS expansion, which will see four new teams join the league over the next few years. Sacramento is virtually assured a spot, despite some wild ownership shenanigans, which means that the other cities up for a spot face stiffer competition than the odds…
