When extremist “ultras” aligned with Israel’s right-wing government, mayhem followed.

Armenia and Azerbaijan will not host international matches in the next week for security reasons. (Here’s a good summary of the conflict.)


  1. Just dropped in to acknowledge The Lawrence Arms reference. The Broadways (Chris and Brendan’s first band) and The LA are two of my favorites. Give them a listen if you haven’t, along with The Honor System (other offshoot of The Broadways). They’re all tip top.

  2. Dan C (formerly of 103) says:

    Martinez is leaving on the international break. If Creavalle is injured and the Serbian kid still isn’t ready, then Monteiro to the 5, Aaronson to the 8 and Fontana to the 10 is probably the best option. Just leaves the bench paper thin.

  3. Atomic Spartan says:

    As fans, we need to do something to express our appreciation to el Brujo for staying with the U. Missing out on getting a cap has to suck.

  4. Just saw that FIFA is forcing the Union to release Martínez to the Venezuela national team, so he will miss the next 5 games. That is a big blow to the Union, and I think that ends any hope for them winning the Eastern Conference Title or the Supporters Shield…

  5. That’s sucks about El Brujo, totally agree Monteiro should go there. Interested in what a front two of Kasper and Corey might look like…….that could be a handful for opposition in this league.
