English Premier League Jerseys CSA’s decision on BMO Field splits Canadian supporters_3

“The reality is that it made sense to play the games in Toronto, to minimize the travel as much as you can, and not have the players crossing time zones,” Hart told reporters at a press event on Thursday. “We felt that in Toronto, the dressing room, the field, everything feels like home. In discussion with players and with staff, we thought the best thing to give us an advantage would be to actually play in Toronto.”

That didn’t necessarily sit well with those in Vancouver. Vancouver Sun writer Russell Berrisford questioned the validity of comfort over character for the Canadian team, considering that it "isn’t a team that is interested in engaging with a huge swathe of the fan base."

"What this group of players really need is to step outside of their comfort zone and be made to realize that they need to produce on the field (any field) rather than be worrying about how happy they are with the hotel buffet," Berrisford wrote on Friday.

Aside from logistical and geographical issues, Hart said that another major thing going for Toronto is the playing surface. BMO Field has had a natural grass surface for the past two years, while BC Place and Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium – which hosted games for years before switching to an artificial turf field – do not.

Mexico Liga MX Jerseys Kick Off- US do it again, stun Canada amid controversy_3

Star striker Christine Sinclair, who scored all three of Canada’s goals, summed up her feelings afterwards into 36 words, all of which made it crystal clear how devastating the defeat was for a team that appeared to have the final in their sights with minutes remaining.

"We feel like we didn’t lose, we feel like it was taken from us," said Sinclair. "It’s a shame in a game like that, which is so important, that the ref decided the result before the game started.”

Coach John Herdman also laid the blame at the feet of Pederson for making what is certainly an exceedingly rare call, one US coach Pia Sundhage said even she hadn’t seen before, and labelled the victory lucky.

"The ref will have to sleep in bed tonight after watching the replays," Herdman said. "She’s got that to live with that. We’ll move on from this, I wonder if she’ll be ableto.”

CARSON, Calif. – The LA Galaxy haven’t played once this season with the backline that was the foundation of their dominance en route to Supporters’ Shield and MLS Cup championships last year. Might that quartet debut in Sunday’s SuperClasico against Chivas USA?

Could be. All four first-choice defenders in 2011 – Sean Franklin, Omar Gonzalez, A.J. DeLaGarza and Todd Dunivant – are healthy, and following last week’s 4-0 disaster at Seattle, head coach Bruce Arena is mulling his options.

DeLaGarza and Gonzalez, whose center-back partnership dates to their days at NCAA champion Maryland, would love to see it.

“It’ll be nice [to get the old] backline together,” Gonzalez, who just returned from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, said after Thursday’s training session at Home Depot Center. “Maybe sometime soon we’ll be able to see it.Wholesale soccer uniform If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. We ended on a high note last year, so maybe we should get the backline back together.”

Five MLSers have been named to United States national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s 23-man roster for the upcoming “five-match tournament,” which includes three friendlies and two World Cup qualifiers.

The first friendly is Saturday against Scotland in Jacksonville, Fla. (8 pm ET, NBC Sports Network, live chat on MLSsoccer.com).

The five MLS players are Nick Rimando (RSL), Geoff Cameron (Houston), Kyle Beckerman (RSL), Landon Donovan (LA) and Chris Wondolowski (San Jose).

Four players originally called into this week’s camp were released back to their clubs, including Chivas USA’s Juan Agudelo, Sporting KC’s Graham Zusi, and young Germany-based players Danny Williams and Alfredo Morales. Agudelo and Zusi should be available for their clubs this weekend; on Satuday, Chivas USA host the Seattle Sounders and Sporting KC welcome the San Jose Earthquakes.

Following the Scotland friendly, the USMNT will then host Brazil at FedEx Field outside of Washington, D.C., on May 30 and travel to face Canada on June 3 at BMO Field in Toronto.

Klinsmann will then lead the side into the first games that count of his US managerial career. The US' 2014 World Cup qualification begins with a home match against Antigua and Barbuda on Friday, June 8, in Tampa, followed by a trip to Guatemala on Tuesday, June 12.

Dutch League Jerseys All-Star preview- De Rosario ready to lead MLS vs. Chelsea_8

defenders, 13 midfielders and 7 forwards.

HEAD COACH: The MLS All-Stars will be coached by D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen. Serving as Olsen’s assistant coaches will be Philadelphia Union interim team manager John Hackworth and the D.C. United technical staff of Chad Ashton, Pat Onstad and Josh Wolff. A native of Harrisburg, Pa., Olsen won eight total trophies as a player for United, including two MLS Cups (1999 and 2004). He was a five-time All-Star (appearing in the 1998 & 1999 matches), the 1998 MLS Rookie of the Year, the 1999 MLS Cup MVP, the 2003 USSF Humanitarian of the Year and was named to the MLS Best XI in 2007. Olsen took over the head coach position midway through the 2010 season and was officially named to the position on November 29 of the same year. This season, he has led the Black-and-Red to a 10-7-3 start to the 2012 campaign with the team currently sitting in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Mission accomplished.

The Seattle Sounders had hoped to lock up their spot in the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals by winning Wednesday’s match against Marathón in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. With their 3-2 victory, that’s exactly what they did.

FULL LINEUP AND BOX SCORE

“It’s tremendous,” Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said. “It’s a goal we set for ourselves that we wanted to qualify tonight. We were able to accomplish that. I was really proud. We put a lot of players out there who aren’t regularly in our starting lineup, but I thought they came through and played very, very well.”

Although the Sounders’ starting lineup featured seven changes from Saturday’s MLS affair, they came out looking like the much better team and controlled possession for much of the first half. That paid off when Sammy Ochoa got his third Champions League goal of the campaign on a header from a Mario Martinez cross in the 11th minute.

Mexico Liga MX Jerseys Fantasy Fixes- Forwards will get busy in Round 28

*Reminder #1: The cut-off time to make roster changes is 15 minutes prior to the scheduled kickoff of the first match of the week. This week, that deadline is 7:45 pm ET on Wednesday, September 5.

*Reminder #2: Nine different teams play multiple games in Fantasy Round 28.

Top Players in Round 27: Shalrie Joseph and Ramiro Corrales – 19 points

Key Injuries: OUT – Saër Sène, Teal Bunbury, Daniel Woolard, Torsten Frings, Shea Salinas, Justin Mapp, Hamdi Salihi

Last round kicked off the Fantasy Cup Challenge. For those not moving on, don’t get discouraged, there’s no (tangible) prize for the winner this year – just bragging rights. If you are moving on, however, advancing to the next round will not be a cakewalk by any means. The competition will get tougher and the amount of transfers you make will eventually catch up with you. Pay attention to the upcoming fixtures and make sure you aren’t loading up on players with multiple byes in the rounds ahead (i.e., Montreal do not have a game in Round 30 or 32).

Round 28 will run from Sept. 5-15, so be sure to set your lineup and subs accordingly. As always, pay attention to this weeks’ injury report (Note: Saër Sène has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the season) and don’t forget to review the list of suspensions as well. Be on the lookout for those players missing time due to International duty as well.

Fredy Montero, $11.3m, Seattle Sounders (110 points, ninth among forwards)

Montero got shut down in Round 27, but look for that to change significantly in Round 28. This time, he’ll have two games to help him climb up the forward rankings. Remember what he did to Chivas USA less than two weeks ago? Let me refresh your memory – three goals, one assist and 20 total points. Montero has acquired the reputation of being a late starter the past few seasons. If there’s any truth to that, you shouldn’t waste any more time picking him up. He’s scored seven goals in his last seven games, and before last weekend’s match vs. FC Dallas, he had racked up 48 points in his previous six outings combined – 8.0 points/game. Trust me, with multiple games coming up for Seattle in Round 28 and 31, Montero is someone who will intimidate almost any opponent you face off against in the weeks ahead – don’t let it be you!

Chris Rolfe, $6.5m, Chicago Fire (62 points, 27th among forwards)

You might be thinking to yourself, I haven’t heard much about Chris Rolfe lately, and while that may be true, the stats don’t lie – 11 key passes, 31 recoveries, four goals and 36 total points in his last six matches. He’s getting more minutes at forward than anybody else on Chicago’s roster, and even when Oduro subs on, Rolfe tends drop into the midfield where he can create chances for others. Similar to Seattle, Chicago play multiple games in Round 28 and 31. Plus, at $6.5m, you will not find a more intriguing option at forward. Save some money with this transaction and use the extra cash elsewhere.

Matt Reis, $5.6m, New England Revolution (117 points, eighth among goalkeepers)

Reis was a bold recommendation in Round 27 (according to some of my colleagues), but those of you who came along for the ride were suitably rewarded. Reis landed on the Dream Team for the second time this season, logging 16 total points over a two-game span. In Round 28, he’s due for another multi-gamer, this time, however, against much stronger opponents – D.C. United and the Columbus Crew. His matchups aren’t flattering by any means, but instead of wasting your only waiver on a 'keeper, consider saving it to fill a position of greater need.

However, If you have the funds available and only wish to change up your goalie, I recommend securing Michael Gspurning, $6.2m, Seattle Sounders. He has a home game against a struggling Chivas USA team and an away matchup vs. Portland. Both teams are capable of scoring, but these are two of the more favorable matchups for any keeper this week. If you can’t afford him, I’ve listed below some other 'keepers I like this round as well – all capable of grabbing that ever so beloved clean sheet.

***Other Notable Goalkeepers: Sean Johnson (CHI), Matt Pickens (COL), Milos Kocic (TOR)***

Chad Marshall, $7.2m, Columbus Crew (83 points, T-38th among defenders)

Marshall missed eight games due to concussion symptoms earlier in the season, but lately he’s been showing no ill effects, helping one of the hottest teams in MLS climb up the Eastern Conference standings. Somehow he has placed himself among the top 10 in CBIs (clearances, blocks and interceptions combined), with 197. Want to know how many have come in the last three rounds? Ninety-four. You’ll only be able to take advantage of Columbus’ games in hand for the next two rounds, after which they’ll be playing just one game a week to finish the season. Marshall is a bit pricey, but remember, he started the season at $7.5m – making him somewhat of a bargain now.

Steven Smith, $4.6m, Portland Timbers (45 points, 15 games played)

It’s easy to siwholesale soccer kitst here and recommend the heavy hitters, but the fact of the matter is that you need those inexpensive players to produce as well. Smith, while playing on team that’s given up the third most goals in 2012, has still managed to score six points on six different occasions this season – two of them coming in the last three weeks. Now, if you have the money to get a Chad Marshall or a Jeff Parke, by all means do it. But if you’re like me and have most of your money invested in attacking players, then Smith is a great bargain to sub in. I have Connor Lade, but this week he only has one game and I’m not banking on him to get a goal or hold the Crew scoreless. Smith, on the other hand, has multiple games, including one against a Rapids side that’s tied for sixth from the bottom in goals scored this season.
