• MLS holds on to Pablo
    An attempt to acquire Colorado Rapids midfielder Pablo Mastroeni has, at least for now, been quashed by MLS. Italian Serie B club Brescia has inquired about taking Mastroeni on loan for the upcoming season, but Rapids coach Fernando Clavijo says the terms, as he understands them, are unacceptable. "The deal, as it is now, makes no sense for anybody," said Clavijo Saturday prior to the Rapids' 4-1 loss to Dallas. "Not for Pablo, not for the league, not for Colorado. We would never stand in a player's way if he had the opportunity to go somewhere, but Pablo, perhaps more ...

    "No-Brainer." That's how former U.S. international John Harkes describes his decision to leave the D.C.

Broendby finished second last season and did not qualify ...
  • New Era In New York
    How long will it take Bruce Arena to make New York Red Bull into a semblance of a competitive MLS team? In the short term, he'll have to rely on his tactical knowledge and motivational methods, since the team is tight up against the salary cap, it has no allocations, and the rumors of a "secret meeting" by which the MLS Board of Governors "approved" a mega-player acquisition for Red Bull New York appear to be nothing more than rumors. The return of Youri Djorkaeff can help, assuming Arena can sort out the wants and needs of Djorkaeff and Amado ...
