If you live in Lehigh Valley, check out the SoccerFest & Viewing Party at SteelStacks. It’s presented by Bethlehem Steel F.C. and they’ll screen every match from today until July 15.

Henrik Larsson says Sweden is better off without the “best ever” Ibrahimovic.

Flashback to a quick bit from the British sitcom Gavin & Stacey when they riffed on England’s 1990 song:

The Union will be in Newtown for Friday’s Portugal/Spain match.

At Curtin’s weekly press conference, he hinted that they have an idea how long Medunjanin’s suspension will be.

Josh Yaro is back on concussion protocol.


Bethlehem Steel F.C. and F.C. Cincinnati played last night, as did F.C. Monmouth and New Jersey Copa F.C. Both matches delivered the same result: 2-2.

PSG avoided Financial Fair Play sanctions but must raise immediate funds to satisfy the UEFA.

Anthony Martial wants to leave Manchester United, says agent. Whatevs.

Highlight of the day



  2. Shame for Yaro. Concussions suck and he’s probably stuck with them now.
    If Martial wants to come to the Union I think we could find a spot for him…

  3. The Bobby Boswell comment is hysterical; I want to know where to find it in the course of the 2022 qualifying.

  4. el Pachyderm says:

    Saudi Arabia would do well to hire Bielsa next.
    then say… how much do you want.
    in other news, when does team USA play?

  5. Great start for Russia. Travesty that Saudi qualified and not Holland, Italy, Chili, USA, etc.
    My sister sent me a video of the FanFest in Moscow and it was packed and had a great atmosphere.
