MLS Regular Season
TORONTO – Milos Kocic, the proud father of newborn triplets, will likely get the start in goal against the Chicago Fire at BMO Field Wednesday (7 pm ET; TSN2 in Canada, MLS Live in the US).
But head coach Paul Mariner said he will take into consideration the circumstances before he makes a final decision about what would be Kocic’s first game since Aug. 18.
WAYNE, Pa. – To say the Philadelphia Union are young would be a serious understatement.
Let’s take a look:
• There are 16 players on their roster younger than age 24 – the most of any team in MLS – and key starters Michael and Gabriel Farfan only recently turned 24.
• Their average age is 23.57.
• Their No. 1 striker (Jack McInerney) is 20, their starting goalkeeper (Zac MacMath) is 21, and their longest-tenured defensive starter (Sheanon Williams) is 22.
MONTREAL – Zarek Valentin's only crime was getting injured, really. And while he was out, three Serie A veterans all took places in the Montreal Impact's backline at the same time.
It would be perfectly normal for the 21-year-old defender let pessimism get the better of him. Yet Valentin is keeping his spirits up.
NEW YORK — Marcus Tracy is on his way back home.
After spending the last three seasons with Danish side Aalborg BK, where he was a teammate of current Chicago Fire star Chris Rolfe, the league confirmed on Tuesday that the out-of-contract 25-year-old forward has signed an MLS deal.
The former Wake Forest star will find out his new MLS home in a weighted lottery that will be conducted on Thursday, Sept. 13. Clubs have until end of day on Wednesday to confirm whether they will participate in the lottery.
Fichar a Fredy Montero ha sido un gran negocio para Seattle Sounders, y no sólo en lo futbolístico.
Según la revista Forbes, la cuarta camiseta más vendida de la MLS pertenece a Montero. El delantero colombiano sólo es superado por Landon Donovan, Thierry Henry y David Beckham.
CARSON, Calif. – When Jorge Vergara assumed full ownership of Chivas USA last month, the move was just the latest in a string of transactions that have left the club without much solid footing over the last three years.
Since the 2009 season, Chivas have been one of the more unstable franchises in the league. Turnover among players, coaches and front-office personnel has all but created the need for a revolving door at the club’s facilities.
Perhaps that is a reason behind the team’s recent struggles.
