Alessandro Del Piero: "Yes, it's true. This summer I'm going to the USA .... On holiday."


Steve Cherundolo will be in a MLS team uniform when the summer transfer period ends.


Toronto FC drew 18,394 for their Sunday game against Seattle. Is that their first ever non-sellout?!?!? Maybe not, but the honeymoon is over. On the other hand that may help as now they won't have to constantly be playing on honeymoon legs.


Simon Kuper of the Financial Times writes that Barcelona is where Jose Mourinho really got his start and came into his own. Now Barca fears him.


Jozy Altidore after his brutal head butt ended his season at Hull City:
@JozyAltidore17: I'm so sorry about yesterday. Made a stupid, immature and costly mistake. I apologize to hull city and the fans who I let down. I let my emotions get the best of me and lost my composure. Believe it or not this year playing for hull was to date the best trip I've ever been on.


Jonathan Tannenbaum of reports on a bus of Philadelphia Union fans getting a rain of rocks supposedly from some New York Red Bulls fans that broke 3 windows. Idiots are everywhere.

DC was off this weekend.


Danny Cruz - Houston - 2 Yellow Cards
Krzysztof Krol - Chicago - Red Card


All 16 teams will be in action next Saturday.


Dwayne DeRosario was named MLS Player Of The Week.
-I would have gone with Marco Pappa personally.


Steve Davis of Sports Illustrated always has the best analysis from MLS games, and here is his Five things to take away from Week 5.


Kyle McCarthy of with his Monday MLS Breakdown, focuses on Conor Casey and other USA forward hopefuls, plus 11 questions, thoughts and answers.


Jeff Carlisle of ESPN Soccernet with his Week 5 Wrap Up.


Ridge Mahoney of Soccer America with Six thoughts from MLS Week 5.


Frank Dell'apa of the Boston Globe talks to New England coach Steve Nicol about all the rough play in the league so far this season.
-I have been stunned at how brutal some of the games have gotten at times.


Steve Davis on Daily Soccer Fix gives good grades to 2 new MLS coaches.


Jack Bell of the New York Times gives us his impressions of new Red Bulls left winger Brian Nielsen. Thumbs up.


Ryan Johnston of Sports Net sees Preki taking TFC by the scruff of the neck and dragging them to victory.


Houston was hoping that last years surprise centerback Geoff Cameron could move forward and do the same thing in the attacking midfielder position, but this will now not happen as Cameron suffered a bad knee injury in their game against Chicago. Well, its bad - ruptured PCL and done for the season.
-Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle with the full story.
-So how do they replace Cameron who was replacing Holden who was replacing DeRosario? My guess is that Brad Davis slides inside with Cory Ashe on the left wing. But that is not the same.


Word circulating around the globe this afternoon says David Beckman will not be healthy for the Galaxy this season as his achilles injury will not be healed in time. We shall see.


Hey Fire fans, I don't care what the weather was like, you got outdrawn by Columbus!


In the Chicago v Houston game the referee Ricardo Salazar proved he cannot keep a game under control by have to hand out 8 Yellow Cards and 2 Red Cards in 9 minutes!!! (79th-88th minute.) Just brutal.


I am a Roger Torres fan! How come he keeps getting subbed out. Is Peter Nowak giving him the Freddy Adu treatment?


New England must now always be included in the group with Dallas & Colorado for those who cannot sell tickets to see their team play. But at least New England get's decent newspaper coverage in Boston. Those other two get minimum word count.


I will say this, I don't know who most of those guys who lined up for Toronto are, but its the second or third game in a row for most of them, and stability leads to success. They are still far from world beaters, but at least I knew what I was going to see as soon as I saw the line up on Sunday.


For two teams who are struggling I sure found that Chivas v San Jose game entertaining, with the better team winning. And some amazing goals too, not to mention some surprising young players getting the job done for both teams: Blair Gaivn, Chukwudi Chijindu and Michael Lahoud for Chivas, with Brandon McDonald, Steven Beitashour and Ike Opara for San Jose.


And what a smokin goal by Sacha Kljestan. Check the vid at the 00:36 mark.


On the other hand, Kei Kamara had the weirdest miss I have ever seen (the ball did go in off his hand, but did he miss it with his foot??). I know I could have scored this one! Video, at the 1:25 mark.


Michael Lewis of Big Apple Soccer wonders where everyone was on Saturday? Less than 16,000 showed up for the third league game at Red Bull Arena, and the team is winning. Plus it was beautiful weather outside. And it was against Philly! So what gives?


Raul of Real Madrid messed up his ankle, so what does that do to his potential trip to MLS?

NSC Minnesota Stars 1-0 Tampa Bay Rowdies
Crystal Palace Baltimore 1-3 Puerto Rico Islanders
-Sun Apr 25
Montreal Impact 1-1 Portland Timbers
Austin Aztex 1-2 Rochester Rhinos
-Wed Apr 28
NSC Minnesota Stars v Rochester Rhinos
-Thu Apr 29
Portland Timbers v Vancouver Whitecaps


Standings (As of Thu Apr 25):
NASL Conference>
7 Vancouver - 3 played (+3 GD)
3 Carolina - 2 played (+1 GD)
2 Miami - 2 played (0 GD)
1 Montreal - 2 played (-2 GD)
0 Baltimore - 2 played (-3 GD)
0 St Louis - 4 played (-7 GD)
USL Conference>
7 Portland - 3 played (+4 GD)

6 Austin - 3 played (+2 GD)
6 Minnesota - 4 played (-2 GD)
4 Rochester - 3 played (0 GD)
3 Tampa Bay - 2 played (0 GD)


Not surprising after a few rounds that Vancouver and Portland are at the top. I don't expect anything else all season long. Puerto Rico and Montreal should be there are well.


Another Win! 4 games and 6 points, I will take that! Stars beat Tampa Bay in their inaugural home opener. Yes it was classic bunker ball, but it was a win and a team that wasn't even alive 4 months ago is deserving of patience on how they get the job done. Upon reflection I am happy.


The NSC stadium looked sharp all around, including that incredible new scoreboard!!! I have to get a picture of it in action for all of you. Next home game is Wednesday, so how about then?


What fires me up the most is that incredible old-timey scoreboard! Wow. And the clock face lights up! Double Wow. Check this out:

Lot's of great game coverage in words and video on the first ever home game from Inside Minnesota Soccer.


Jason de Vos of the CBC on Charlie Davies and any chances of him being healthy for the USA team.


Martin Rogers of Yahoo Sports on the relationship between Davies and England's Ashley Cole, plus other World Cup Group C news.


Rogers also wonders about the mental state of Jozy Altidore, with other news from the weekend.
-I am not worried about his head. And neither should you be.


The teams participation in the International Tournament of Gradisca (Italy) was canceled due to all the flight complication from the volcanic ash chaos.


What an idiot: Jozy Altidore was tossed from the Hull City game on Saturday for a headbutt! Here is the video. And an article from the local Hull paper.
-He has been given a 3 games suspension with only 2 left to play, so his career at Hull is effectively over.
-Hull are also just a whisker away from relegation, needing to win both of their last two, while West Ham lose both of theirs.


Maurice Edu & DaMarcus Beasley and Rangers have won the Scottish Premier League championship again! Edu played the full 90 in the big game while Beasley watched from the stands.
-The Scotland Herald sees this team as "a good vintage."


Marcus Hahnemann and Wolverhampton got the 1 point they needed to avoid relegation for this season. They are safe!


Jonathan Spector and West Ham need 1 point from 2 games to guarantee safety.


The regular season ended on Friday for Charles Kazlauskas and Helmond Sport in the Dutch Eerste Divisie (2nd division). They finished 6th which puts them in a spot for the promotion playoffs.


Jay DeMerit is out of the Watford line up for another week with a stomach muscle strain of some sort. Not good.


Odds are strong that Stuart Holden will resume full time training with Bolton this week.


The regular season ended on Sunday for Freddie Adu & Eddie Johnson and Aris Thessalonika, but the team finished 5th which puts them into the 4 team playoffs for European cup spots next season.
-The 4 teams play a full home and away round robin tournament to decide who goes where. Starts on Wed Apr 28.

May be a little early to hand Ajax the Dutch Cup this year. It went under-reported, but they recently decided to change the Final this year to a two-legged series due to security concerns. The 2nd leg is next week sometime at Feyenoord.

well, we all know that MLS is considered a 'holiday' to top players around the world, so the question begs- which team, Alessandro?
