Seattle Sounders will wait until the summer before making transfer decisions

Seattle Sounders general manager Garth Lagerwey has indicated that the team will wait until the summer before making any investment decision.


He said that they are investigating a couple of players but will need to continue watching them before making any transfer dealings.

Sounders head coach SigiSchmid also said the same thing to the media. Schmid told reporters that he will have to sit down and analyze each player before making a decision about signing. He said that he is not going to buy new players just for the sake of buying and that the new players should really add value to the club.

It is expected that Seattle Sounders will be adding a couple of players to the team to help boost their chances of winning a trophy. Based on the comments of both the General Manager as well as the Head Coach, it seems that they already have made their choices, and they are just waiting for the right moments to finalize their deals.

Shinji Kagawa is starting to be an influential player again for Borussia Dortmund

Shinji Kagawa is starting to be an influential player again for Borussia Dortmund and is starting to show glimpses of what he had done in his first tenure at the club.

Kagawa had emerged as an absolute belter of a player at Dortmund in that two-year tenure and had attracted big clubs with his classy style of play.

He signed for Manchester United in 2012 which was thought to be a career defining move for him, but, it turned out to be otherwise as he failed to progress any further at Old Trafford and probably went in the backward direction instead.

When he rejoined Dortmund the previous summer, he was only a fraction of the player which he was when he had left the club and there were concerns among his well wishers regarding where his career was going.

But, of late, that is in 2015-16 Season, it’s been a different story for Kagawa.

It would probably be an overstatement to already say that the Japan international is at his best now, but, it can be safely said that he has been playing far better this season than he had been playing in the past couple of seasons.

The Dortmund Chairman Michael Zorc is also a happy man to see Kagawa delivering.

He applauded the playmaker while speaking to media recently.

Zorc said, “Shinji is setting up goals more frequently than before which is very, very good news. He has become vital to us again.”

“He is someone who is energetic all the time and just keeps going.” Continue reading →

Major League Soccer is still not right up there in terms of the game standard

The Major League Soccer is still not right up there in terms of the game standard, but, the way it is developing every season, the time is not that far away when it will start giving tough competitions to the big leagues in Europe.

The fan following of some of the teams in MLS is just remarkable.

Seattle Sounders probably have got the most passionate fans. In almost every game that they play at their home stadium, it happens to be jam packed.

The average no. of people that were present during the home matches of the Sounders the previous season was more than 43000 and that’s not bad at all.

It’s actually better a number than what some of the clubs in Premier League achieve.

And, not only do the Sounders’ fans come in big numbers, they create an electric atmosphere too. They are full of passion, make noise, sing songs and stand right behind their team. Continue reading →

New Role good sign for John Carver

Newcastle United’s caretaker manager John Carver believes that he will be able to succeed in his role and get a permanent position at the club, but he places his hopes on the club providing him with much better players.

Newcastle are far from being consistent in the second half of the season and this is widely linked to the managerial ability of Carver. Alan Pardew was a Newcastle manager for four years and during this period he finished the season just outside the top four in the 2011-12 season. He managed to achieve this despite being on a limited budget.

Carver has no complaints about the players he has at his disposal, but in the huge number of injuries mean that he has had to put together a makeshift defence for matches against top teams. This coupled with the lack of a motivational factor for the players has resulted in the club winning just one out of the last five matches. Despite this, they remain a comfortable 10 points away from the relegation zone with eight matches left. Newcastle are almost certain to stay clear of relegation if they win another match. Carver has pointed out to the injuries to key players like Stephen Taylor, which has seen him use players out of position in the defence. Continue reading →

New York Red Bulls going under Many Problems

Things are not quite the same at New York Red Bulls anymore. Thierry Henry has gone and so has Mike Petke, two of the defining personalities at the club in the recent past.

A big chunk of the fanbase of the Red Bulls did not like Petke’s sacking.

The 39-year old might not have been able to make the Red Bulls finish at the top of the pile in the Eastern Conference last season. But, the fans still wanted him to carry on.

The club board, however, did not have the same thinking and Petke was told that he was not wanted.

Jesse Marsch has landed to take his place and he is not a new name to the Major League Soccer. He has had a long stint as a player and as a coach too in the league. So, he knows how it works there in America. Continue reading →
