Ale Bedoya wore the captain’s armband in the USMNT’s Gold Cup opener. Bedoya played primarily on the right side. It is worth noting that he was limping a little when he was subbed off, but I cannot find any updates, so at this time, I am assuming it is nothing major. Hear him speak about it.

How often have we heard this? “Goalkeeper Andre Blake kept his side in the game with several super saves”. He earned Man of the Match honors and served as captain in Jamaica’s 2-0 win. Highlights.

In case you’re wondering how the Union decides who takes a PK, Curtin leaves it up to the players.

It is not a good idea to grab Gooch by the neck.

Chuck Booth makes the case for Jack Elliott as rookie of the year so far. Do you agree?


Bethlehem extended their unbeaten streak to 7 with a 2-0 win over Red Bulls II. Starting XI. Nanco and Najem combined to create the first goal, while Moar set up Herbers for the second.


Miami FC won the NASL Spring season.

The USL surpassed 1M in attendance this season.

Neal Patterson, part-owner of Sporting KC, passed away this weekend. RIP.

Around the globe

All the scores from the Gold Cup thus far.

The United States drew Panama 1-1 on a goal by Dom Dwyer. The USMNT simply did not play well. There were reasons for concern, but also reasons for optimism.

Manchester United and Everton have essentially swapped strikers, with Lukaku on his way to Man U for 75M pounds and Rooney heading to Everton.

Superfan Bradley Lowery lost his battle with cancer. RIP.

Highlight of the day

Romario Williams scores from an impossible angle.


  1. Might want to rewrite that first sentence.

  2. Times like this I wish EPL did trades

    “Yeah, we’ll give you $72m quid for Lukaku, oh, and uh, we’ll throw in Rooney on the deal…”

  3. Andy Muenz says:

    Fully 25% of the teams in the Gold Cup this weekend had current or former Union players as captains.

  4. Any news on Mo Edu?
