After the announcement that they’d be getting a team of their own in 2019, FC Cincinnati fans have begun organizing an event in support of their neighbors to the northeast. #SaveTheCrew

Or maybe it will be PSG’s TIm Weah who steals the spotlight? Or maybe all of the above?

Tim Ream will be in the Premier League next season, while Lynden Gooch will be in League One.

And the USMNT plans to get over their no-World Cup hangover with October Friendlies against Argentina and Colombia.

  1. God bless you, Matt Doyle. May you please be right.

  2. “One less excuse to criticize Hope Solo’s off-the-field behavior.” – I guess this means you feel she is treated harshly?
