Good morning folks! By the time you see this, I will be in the air on the way to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (via Barbados), where the USMNT will face the Vincy Heat on Friday. But, I couldn’t leave you all without the Wednesday word, so here you go:
Hope Solo was clearly upset that she was suspended from the USWNT and lets loose in a video recorded by a film company for a documentary. Also, it may be Closing Time on Hope’s soccer career as she has decided she’s done playing for the Seattle Reign for the rest of 2016.
Meanwhile, the rest of the USWNT charges on, as U.S. Soccer has added friendlies against Switzerland on October 19th in Sandy, Utah and October 23rd in Minneapolis at the new U.S. Bank Stadium.
The European transfer window closes today, so the transactions will be coming in fast throughout the day as teams in the major European leagues hope to solidify their rosters for the fall.
This is the epitome of sportsmanship and good on these youngsters to show some respect to their opponent after beating them in the final of the Junior Soccer World Challenge.

Bad news for the LA Galaxy as well as the USMNT as Gyasi Zardes has a broken foot and is out for at least the rest of the MLS regular season. Whether the recovery could creep into November and possible Galaxy playoff matches and/or United States World Cup qualifiers remains to be seen.
The England captain announces that 2018 is it for him on the national team, so let’s see if England can make a ru—wait...sorry. I can’t even finish that statement without laughing.
With that, it’s 7:00am, and I’m wheels up to the Caribbean in search of 3 points for the Yanks. Have a great day! The comments are open for business, and now I will check out my favorite airplane movie, the award-winning “Back Of My Eyelids.”
