Someone get Alexi a cowboy hat and a duster...

I'm not much of a gal fan, but it'd be nice to see Becks get one last title before he leaves.

congrats. My hope now is that Seattle doesn't implode as they plan for next season. Lots of blowback from the fans. Most of which don't understand league restrictions to begin with.

Lots of domestic soccer news:

- Here's the Re-Entry Draft list. It could change if clubs make deals with players before Friday. But there are some big names. Who knows, maybe Toronto will pick de Guzman back up

- Olave and Espindola traded to NYRB for allocation money. Wow... and in further gutting of RSL, Johnson was sent to Portland

- Portland sent Kosuke Kimura to NYRB

- Justin Braun will continue to be punted around the league, this time to Toronto

- NYRB put a big red bow on Kenny Cooper and is looking for offers, which is absolutely ridiculous. "Hey, thanks for scoring 18 goals. Now don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out."

- Sacramento is starting a USL PRO (3rd tier) franchise, the name to be chosen by the community. This is a few months after initial rumors of MLS expanding or moving a franchise to Elk Grove (Sacramento suburb.) USL PRO is also adding franchises in Tampa and Phoenix

- LA Galaxy are still the MLS Champs... not news, just wanted to mention it again

I find RSL moves interesting too. The three they got rid of were real thorns in Seattle's side. There is some talent out there to be had that will fit Seattle's needs, but in general it seems like a lot of teams are just dumping payroll more than anything else.

And yes, congrats on the cup win. Let's hope Donovan gets the playing bug back after a break. I will miss Becks too.

Right now looking at things and having experienced the NASL I am a bit concerned about the clubs who are trying to go cheap. We're only as strong as our worst club.

Well Portland, Toronto, and Chivas are making big moves both on and off the field so that may help in general.
