Kevork Djansezian

You made it through Monday, congratulations. We are still seeking our first win but Harry Shipp continues to impress. Let's all just soak this in for the moment. We have a homegrown player who is the most impressive rookie of the season. It's a good day.

Sporting KC release another player

Sporting KC released defender Mechack Jerome. The Haitian international played in 16 games since joining in 2013. This move might be another move to create cap space for a new player. It'll be interesting to see who comes in.

Indy Eleven sign Kleberson

As their marquee signing, Indy Eleven have signed Kleberson. The former Manchester United and Philadelphia Union midfielder signed on for two years. This is a very good signing for the team, and he will be available for today's friendly against the Chicago Fire reserves.

Orlando stadium approved

Orlando City SC make another move in their preparation for MLS by having their stadium construction plans approved by the Orlando City Council. The details of the agreement show plans for a stadium with a capacity of 18,000 and cost around $84 million. The team hopes to open the stadium in the summer of 2015.

Beasley, Orozco out of USA friendly

Beasley and Orozco's club Puebla announced that they would not release the duo for the friendly versus Mexico. Since it is not a FIFA date, teams are not required to release their players. Puebla has been struggling so it seems that they think the team needs a few more days of practice together. This leaves the U.S. short at the fullback position.

Seattle Distracted by the ref?


Think Kansas City will make a big signing? Predictions for Indy's season? Excited for Orlando? Thoughts on U.S. friendly? Sympathize with Seattle?
