Can Any MLS Clubs Upset Their Liga MX Opponents In The CCL Quarterfinals?

With five MLS clubs and three Liga MX sides making up the quarterfinals of the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League, the stage is perfectly set to deliver the matchups we all want to see.  

While one MLS side is guaranteed passage to the semifinals (Atlanta and Philadelphia do battle in the quarters), we’re eagerly anticipating 2018 CCL finalist Toronto against 2014 CCL winner Cruz Azul, reigning MLS Cup titleholder Columbus taking on 2019 CCL victor Monterrey, and 2020 MLS is Back Tournament champ (the highest accolade around) Portland clashing with 2016 CCL top dog América.   

Mexico’s Charlyn Corral Stars Alongside Salah, Pogba, Beyoncé In New ‘Impossible Is Nothing’ Campaign

Back in 1974, adidas began associating itself with the “Impossible is Nothing” slogan, which was an extract from a Muhammad Ali quote.

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

Players Unite In Calling Super League The Dumbest Conception Of All Time

The cat is out of the bag as 12 “leading European clubs” have thrown it all away in pursuit of securing the most gluttonous bag in the history of football. It’s difficult to see these historic institutions — Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and AC Milan among them — as football clubs at this point; they’re self-serving vehicles of greed that operate as welfare for billionaires. We should amend the “FC” abbreviation on these clubs’ names accordingly.

On The Chopping Block: Seven Premier League Starters Who Could Be Benched Next Season

Something we often forget about professional footballers is that unlike most of us, they actually have pretty lousy job security. A manager will bench a player who is playing poorly without any second thought because the success of the team is more important than any individual player. 

Of course, the starting lineup is always fluid, but players have to fight every week to make the starting XI, even when it seems like their position is secured. And eventually, every player will be replaced; it is only a question of when. 

A Reminder Of Why Braces, Caps And Hat Tricks Are Called Braces, Caps And Hat Tricks

Why are two goals called a brace? Does a CAP mean career appearances? When does the hat do a trick and is it a kick flip?

These are all questions that non-soccer regulars may have asked themselves at one point. The Beautiful Game has some unique terminology that not everyone knows the root of. This article will act as your cheat sheet on why these terms are used and where they came from.

In case you have some sort of three-question quiz coming up, you can come back to this article for the answers.

First on the list is the brace.

Los 10 Latinos Más Valiosos De La MLS 2021

Este 16 de abril retorna la MLS y el sabor latino será uno de sus principales condimentos. Uno dato revelador es que dentro de los 10 futbolistas más valiosos o mejor tasados de la liga, según Transfermarkt, nueve son latinos. Quien rompe ese dominio es el español Alejandro Pozuelo.

El Top 10 latino está conformado mayormente por jugadores que ya llevan al menos seis meses en la competencia. La única excepción es el brasileño Brenner, quien es uno de los refuerzos del FC Cincinnati para la campaña 2021.

MLS Delivers Most Accessible Season Ever With 100+ Games On National TV

The 26th season of Major League Soccer begins on Friday, April 16, with a nationally televised match between the Seattle Sounders and Minnesota United on FS1 (a rematch of last year’s unbelievable Western Conference final). The MLS national TV schedule 2021 grows from there with FOX Sports, ABC/ESPN and TUDN all broadcasting a historic amount of games.  

No UCL Football For First Time Since 2015 Would Prove Disastrous For Dortmund

DORTMUND WOES

The18 Debuts Its New Clothing Line For The American Soccer Fan

Since the beginning of time humanity has sought to cover its dirty bits. 

From sewing fig-leaves together and crafting loin-cloths in the Garden of Eden to oozing swagger in a turtleneck and chain combo, humankind has always been on an insatiable quest to combine the elements of decency and drip. 

However, these pieces might fit right, feel good and come at an affordable price, but do they do enough to support your viewpoint on how implementing promotion and relegation throughout the American soccer pyramid would win us the 2026 World Cup?
