Who's Up For A Game Of Uno With Gramps News

Best banner I have seen hung in a MLS stadium this season - in front of the most ardent TFC supporters, it simply read: WE DESERVE BETTER. Oh how they do. Come on MLSE, prove to your teams fans that you will not treat them like Maple Leafs and Raptors fans.


What a start! Danny Cepero made his debut in goal for the New York Red Bulls, and scored on a free kick from 81 yards away. This was the first time a goalkeeper has scored in MLS, outside of a Penalty Kick. The Bulls won 3-1 and continue their charge toward the playoffs.


Huge thumbs up! Former USA great Earnie Stewart is the Technical Director at NAC Breda in the Dutch Eredivisie and has led the team to the top of the table! Fantastic for them and him!! Hooray Earnie. Boo Earwax!


You need to go check out this great video highlight blog Yanks Abroad Soccer Highlights. They have clips of Americans playing in Europe & Mexico. Great job done by Matt.

It seems that former Mexico coach Ricardo La Volpe never learns to keep his mouth shut. Remember when he used to rag on the USA team, and then lose constantly?

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy with a 70's mustache.
