How to build a roster from scratch

Major League Soccer

Transfer Rater: Brandt to Liverpool

Robbie Keane shows son who's boss in garden kickabout/life lesson

Drew Brees sends Southampton his well wishes, Robbie Keane doesn't let up versus his young son and more in The Sweeper.

Messing around in the garden with his son, Robbie Keane was suddenly struck down by a chronic case of CDS -- Competitive Dad Syndrome.

What started as a gentle kickabout quickly got serious when the former Republic of Ireland striker belted a shot past his boy and into the top corner.

Keane's reaction, hilariously, was somewhat less than magnanimous.

"What do you say about that, little Keano?"

Somebody's got to teach the lad that life can be harsh -- who better than Robbie Keane?

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.

Transactions that stand out in quiet 2017 Major League Soccer offseason

Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar examine the impact NYCFC's Maxi Moralez and RSL's Luis Silva can have for their new clubs this season.
Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar discuss Fredy Montero's return to MLS, and other players' reaction to the move.
Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez react to reports American international Josh Gatt could be joining Minnesota United.

The preseason friendlies are getting more frequent, the CONCACAF Champions League is about to resume, and the seasonal flurries of trade rumors are beginning to die down as rosters fill up for the 2017 MLS season. Which have been the most significant transactions of the offseason?

It's perhaps not as clear-cut as in other years, when clusters of aging designated players defined the story of the offseason. Perhaps that's in part due to the Chinese Super League's skewing the market for superannuated...

After heavy investment in attack, MLS teams are spending big in defense

Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar discuss Fredy Montero's return to MLS, and other players' reaction to the move.
MLS teams have more room to pay big money for defenders, like LA Galaxy's recently re-signed Jelle van Damme.

You don't have to go back too far in Major League Soccer to see that high-priced signings were almost the exclusive purview of attacking players. It made sense. In a salary-cap league, that was where teams -- especially those willing to shell out money for the league's highest paid players -- could get the most bang for the buck. But this offseason, there has been a noticeable shift in where teams allocate their precious financial assets.

So far this preseason, based on releases of player signings...

Chicago Fire under pressure to deliver in 2017 following painful rebuild

The FC crew discuss the manner in which the Red Bulls went about trading Dax McCarty to the Chicago Fire.

"For me, this year is the year for Chicago Fire. We have nothing to lose this year, and I'm so confident that we'll do great things."

Speaking with ESPN FC from preseason camp, David Accam is feeling positive for the first time in a long time. After two years in which his individual play drew praise but not enough points for a losing Chicago team, Accam has noted the offseason influx of players like Dax McCarty, Nemanja Nikolic and Juninho, and is looking forward to finally enjoying a positive...

San Jose Earthquakes' barren spell has clock ticking on coach Dominic Kinnear

Herculez Gomez says Chris Wondolowski is being underutilised with the Earthquakes under coach Dominic Kinnear.
Quincy Amarikwa left a $2,200 tip for a cabbie in Las Vegas, which Herculez Gomez says is a testament to his character.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- As San Jose Earthquakes general manager Jesse Fioranelli sits down in his chair, it's clear he hasn't quite settled into his new digs at Avaya Stadium.

The pictures adorning the wall and desk in his office belong to the previous occupant, Dave Kaval. While remaining the Quakes' team president, Kaval has moved up the 880 freeway to Oakland, where he's taken on the same role with the Oakland A's of Major League Baseball.

The state of Fioranelli's office -- which he's occupied a...

After a breakthrough in 2016, Toronto FC looks to build perennial success

Jozy Altidore reflects on the agony of losing the MLS Cup Final and how Toronto FC must use it as motivation.

There's no crueler way to lose a final than on penalty kicks, at home, to a team you didn't allow a shot on goal during 120 minutes. The two months that have passed since Toronto FC watched the Seattle Sounders steal MLS Cup at frigid BMO Field in December haven't changed that fact for TFC coach Greg Vanney.

Yet Vanney has a simple reminder for his players as the Reds enter the final stages of preparations for a 2017 season in which they'll be among the title favorites: last year is long gone.
