Hello folks! It’s early in the morning and I don’t have much for you since I head home for the holidays today, so let’s just jump right into the news:
The USWNT and Orlando Pride star Alex Morgan is taking her talents to Olympique Lyonnais for the 2nd half of their season. She’s slated to return in June for the start of the NWSL season, but she outlines the reasons for her decision for The Players’ Tribune.
ICYMI: D.C. United finally agrees to a loan deal for Costa Rican attacker Jose Guillermo Ortiz. How will he fit into the Black-and-REd offense? Color me excited to see him run defenses ragged.
Real Madrid keeps on winning. This time, they won their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for sport, who reduced their transfer ban to just one signing period. This means that Los Blancos will be able to resume signing new players in June.
Of course FC Barcelona wasn’t going to let Shanghai Shenhua pay anyone more than they pay Lionel Messi. They’re already starting to work on an extension that will pay the phenom more than what Shenhua will reportedly pay Carlos Tevez.
English fans, particularly at Swansea, haven’t been taking Bob Bradley seriously because of the way he talks? Maybe they should listen to what the former United States manager has to say, because they aren’t winning anything else not listening to him.
3 trophies, 2 losses. That’s what Zinedine Zidane’s record looks like, a remarkable accomplishment for the man who took over for Rafa Benitez at the Bernabeu just under a year ago.
Shoutout to our coach Ben Olsen for being one of the first MLS coaches to complete this advanced course for aspiring American coaches.
USMNT striker Bobby Wood made some people look silly yesterday. Take a look at this goal he scored for Hamburger SV.
That’s what we got for today. The comments are open, so tap a sip of coffee and head on in!
