    Kyle Beckerman retires

    Dallas beings in a defender from Eibar, New England a defender from Nacional in Columbia.

    Cobi Jones is going to run for USSF VP


      Dallas signed a winger from Colombia; Austin a Colombian defender from Guarani.

      Tommy McNamara re-signed with New England.

      Reentry draft part 2 was today, with the funniest part being Houston taking Joe Corona. Who was one of Austin's expansion picks. But he didn't opt out of the reentry draft, so he was eligible. So Austin loses a pick and their first player for nothing, and the Galaxy get $50K of allocation money for losing a player they'd actually already lost for free. And, he's probably going to back to Liga MX anyway.

      SKC signed a French MF for free from a Turkish club that stopped paying him.

      Sheffield United and Reading are looking at Lewis Morgan.


        Probably not the right thread but here are the highlights of the Los Angeles vs Tigres UNAL Concacaf Champions League final. Looks like Lionel Messi scored the winner !

        The complete match is also on the Concacaf YouTube channel, and Freesports in the UK are repeating the complete game a couple of times over the next couple of days.


          BWP signed with Columbus, Andrew Tarbell with Austin.

          Rio Grande Valley is revising their agreement with Houston. They'll handle their own coach and player roster from now own, supplemented with Houston loanees, so they can now enter the USOC.


            Washington Spirit trade for Emily Sonnett from Orlando in return for a player, a bunch of allocation dollars, and 2 1st round picks


              Philly is selling Mark McKenzie to Genk for $6M, some possible add-ons, and a 20% sell on clause.

              Brian Reynolds to Juve via loan to Cagliari for about $10M is the likeliest scenario for him at the moment.

              FC Cincinnati sign Ben Mines, Cody Cropper, and trade for Ronald Matarrita from NYCFC for $5-600K of allocation money.

              Miami re-signs Brek Shea, and Atlanta use their Aberdeen co-ownership to being in a Venezuelan defender.

              Sky Blue trade Mallory Pugh and another player to Chicago Red Stars for a bunch of first round picks

              The traditional camp cupcake friendly may be Serbia, in Orlando, 1/31/21.
