2. Professional soccer is here to stay in America. Now we need some covered terraces at stadiums, especially in the Pacific Northwest.
3. I've been critical of DeAndre Yedlin this season, but his ability to cross balls has improved dramatically since the start of the year. Once he improves his passing while under pressure, he will become a member of the USMNT.
4. In 2014 Eddie Johnson will have a designated player contract in MLS. The question is, will that be with Seattle? Dempsey and Martins are automatics for DP's. Will the Sounders choose Rosales, Johnson, Alonso or someone new as their third DP?
5. If I was the general manager of an MLS side, for the price, the first player currently in the league that I would want to build my team around...Osvaldo Alsonso.
7. Why hasn't the best ginger in MLS, Dax McCarty, been called into a USMNT camp?
8. In less than 24 hours the grounds crew at CenturyLink Field was able to remove the football lines on the field prior to kickoff of the Sounders-Red Bulls match. Why cant the Gillette Stadium crew do the same prior to Revolution matches?
9. Once again, Thierry Henry, skipped out on an opportunity to play on FieldTurf. If the Red Bulls have to play a playoff match on FieldTurf, what will the hand-ball Frenchman do?
10. Happy for Mike Petke that he decided to add a coat to his outfit for the second half. Is it fair to say, he has the best style of anyone that has ever attended Southern Connecticut State University?
