Storylines for every Week 14 game.

Timbers have signed Congolese center back Larrys Mabiala. He will not be eligible to play until the secondary transfer window opens on July 10.

Minnesota United has their stadium funding, but it sounds like there was a ton of not-so-on-the-level wrangling involved in getting it done.

The NY teams have managed to make their own fans upset with them by overpricing USOC tickets. Amazing.

Around the globe

The U-20 USMNT are back in action tomorrow morning with a 7AM EST game against New Zealand.

Timmy Chandler has withdrawn from the USMNT camp due to injury, and from what I can find, he will not be replaced on the roster.

    “NYCFC’s third match in six days will come against a well-rested opponent, as the Union will have an entire week to prep for their I-95 rivals”
    Some of the team will be very well rested, having not really played much at all this season.

  2. This morning’s U20 WC game between Germany and Zambia was awesome! Zambia was up 3-1 in the 86th minute only for Germany to score 2 goals and tie it up to force extra time but in extra time Zambia knocked Germany out. What a drama and exciting soccer!! So glad I have FS2!

    Here is my first request that we look to vote as many Dallas Stars into the All Star game as possible since that’s the team the Union play 3 days later.

      I like your tactics!

    • Old Soccer Coach says:

      remember the all-star game that had Pirlo and Villa when NYCFC had a game 2-3 days later? They both started, played 20 minutes, dressed, left the stadium and were in the air flying home before the final whistle.
