Ever wonder how MLS owners actually turn a profit?

Around the globe

After sitting out of Liverpool’s matches for health concerns, Coutinho has been cleared by his doctor to play for Brazil in their World Cup Qualifiers.

Arsenal have allegedly rejected a 50 million pound bid for Alexis Sanchez from Manchester City.


  1. Serious Clark? says:

    one of best MLS coaches ever signs on to assist another of the best MLS coaches ever to help a team leaking too many goals against.

    • LA is out of the playoffs too.
      Just with a more massive budget

    • And Union hired Fred and Kleberson, both barely speak English.

    • I won’t argue one bit about the pedigrees of Dom and Sigi, but I wonder if they haven’t been left behind as coaches. As much as I believe a coaching change would be the best move the Union can make, I really wouldn’t be excited to have Sigi here. Maybe that’s ridiculous. Just my gut.

      As a Reds fan, I’m happy Coutinho is sticking around…. The whole transfer madness for the club has been pretty remarkable. Good bit of drama to distract from the institutional ennui that is the Union.

      • Neither one of them would be my first pick for a new Union coach, but I would take Sigi in a heartbeat given no other choice. Either one of them are upgrades to our current situation.
