MLS in Yankee Stadium completes New York City soccer tapestry
by Mike Woitalla on Friday, May 22, 2015 2:15 PM EDT
Three days. Not much time to soak in a city's soccer culture. But this is New York City. And it helps that I'm at the apartment of Soccer America columnist Paul Gardner.

The remarkable Clive Toye -- who brought showmanship, excitement and color to American soccer
The debt owed by American soccer to Clive Toye is a vast one. It is not too much of an exaggeration to say, flatly, that without Toye's blind faith in the sport in the 1970s, pro soccer in the USA would have withered and died.

"The problem is I think with people in Europe -- and this won't be Stevie's case because I've already told him how difficult the league is here -- is that people think they're coming over here to finish their career and it's a holiday, but when you play for the Galaxy, that's not the case. You're coming over here to win things, because that's what is expected because we're one of the biggest teams in the MLS and we have standards here. The league is a tough, tough league."

-- Robbie Keane on what friend and soon-to-be LA Galaxy teammate Steven Gerrard will face when he joins MLS in July. (ESPN FC)
