Standard Liège fans have long memories. Today, former Red Steven Defour made his return to the stadium where he made his name, only this time playing for Standard's rivals Anderlecht.

The Seattle Sounders hosted the Portland Timbers last night, and it was no ordinary match. It was the nationally televised home debut of newest Sounder Clint Dempsey, and it was held in a sold-out CenturyLink Field. So the home faithful pulled out all the stops.
