DAVID VILLA WINS BEST MLS PLAYER AWARD

It came as no surprise when New York City FC star David Villa was awarded the Best MLS Player honour by ESPY.


The ESPN network had an annual ceremony where the former Barcelona man was named the winner of the award ahead of his rivals.

FC Dallas star Matt Hedges, Philadelphia Union keeper Andre Blake, Seattle Sounders shot stopper Stefan Frei, and New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips were Villa’s rivals but he defeated them all to the award.

The Spanish striker has proven that it was no fluke when he won the MLS MVP honours award after scoring 23 goals in 2016. So far he has scored 12 goals in just 18 games in the current campaign. He largely helped NYC FC reach their first playoff last term. Continue reading →

SOUNDERS PICKS TWO PLAYERS ON FIRST DAY OF 2017 MLS SUPERDRAFT

Seathle Sounders FC has selected two players on the first day of the 2017 Major League Soccer SuperDraft held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.


The SuperDraft is an annual event that takes place every January of each year, in which the teams of Major League Soccer select players who have graduated from college or been signed by the league. Instituted in 2000, the MLS SuperDraft is designed to ensure strict parity in the league, allowing the weaker clubs to develop their rosters.

The Rave Green (as they are also called) made Stanford’s U.S.A born defender, Brian Nana-Sinkam their last selection (22nd overall pick) in the first round, then chose Ghana international Dominic Oduro in the final selection (44th pick) of the second round.

The 22-year old Nana-Sinkam started 67 of 71 appearances over four seasons at Stanford. He was a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCCA) champion in both 2015 and 2016 where he played alongside Sounders FC homegrown player and 2016 AT&T MLS rookie of the year, Jordan Morris.

2016 was a historic year for Seattle Sounders for various reasons

Seattle Sounders finished their 2016 MLS campaign by snatching the 4th spot of the Western Conference and this is a very impressive feat to accomplish for a club that was positioned in the bottom spots in the earlier stages of that season of the MLS.


The MLS outfit that is currently being guided by Brian Schmetzer later went on to secure their first MLS Cup ever in the entire history of the club.

Being able to go from the 9th spot in the MLS to snatching the 4th position is what Seattle Sounders went through in 2016 and it was a memorable thing to achieve but something that make it even more meaningful is the fact that Seattle Sounders was able to win their first MLS Cup after defeating Toronto in a dramatic penalty session.
