  • West Brom might be considering signing Tim Ream during the summer transfer window. The rumor mill puts the price around £4million, which seems like a lot but it's not our money. Bolton paid £2.5 million for the former New York Red Bulls defender who is both solid and versatile. No disrespect here, but anyone who had Ream as the two- or third-best field player in England 18 months ago is a liar.

  • Former ASN contributor Liviu Bird chats with Steve Cherundolo about retirement, coaching, and the future: “[Deciding where he will coach] is something that I think is just impossible for me to say right now. … I’ll make that decision when that comes. Coaching at some level in the United States, whether it’s in youth soccer or at a higher level—professional or in the national team programs—interests me very much. It’s something that I’d love to do.”

  • Michael Bradley could miss this weekend's match against the Colorado Rapids with "a couple of little strains." Sad. Let's watch his goal from last weekend instead of contemplating a Bradley-less match.
  • Graham Parker takes a long look at MLS ownership then and now. Commissioner Don Garber on the mic: “We called a meeting in 2002. At that time we had an ownership group for the Metrostars, we had our Miami owner, we had Phil Anschutz, the Krafts, and Lamar Hunt. [MLS President] Mark Abbott and I made a presentation to that ownership group where we laid out a five-year plan which would have required hundreds of millions of dollars of investment. It painted a bleak picture of what that investment would deliver five years later. And I will say that Mark and I did not recommend that they go ahead with that plan. I could not support this idea that they should continue to invest hundreds of millions of dollars without any indication that it would pay off."
