The Football News

MLS Chester SoccerThe race for the next MLS expansion spot just got a little simpler with MLS Commissioner Don Garber and FC Barcelona representatives today announcing that they were both backing out of negotiations on the subject.  Seems as though Miami is not ready for another franchise:
After extensive discussions and collaborative evaluation a decision was made that at this time because it was determined that it was not feasible to launch a Major League Soccer team in South Florida in 2010 due to adverse market conditions.

I'd rather see Miami never get a new team seeing as how the last one there crashed and burned mostly due to the city and its citizens themselves.  Unlike San Jose where the ownership was who was really at fault.

MLS Not to move forward with Miami expansion

AC Milan cheif Adriani Galliani confirmed earlier reports of the supposed loan deal between them and the LA Galaxy for David Beckham.  Nothing from the Galaxy camp yet.


In the Barclay's Premiership today Chelsea downed Portsmouth 1-0 at Fratton Park, Liverpool 2-0 over Sunderland at Anfield, and West Brom fell victim to Bendtner & Arsenal at home 3-1.

Tonight will see the Houston Dynamo in Cancun for the return leg of their Quarterfinal CONCACAF Champions League match-up against Atlante.  The Dynamo need a win or a 2-2 draw or better to advance as the home match last week ended tied 1-1 and atlante leads on away goals.  A loss or a scoreless draw will see their run in the CL end.  Catch the match at 9PM Central Time on FOX Soccer Channel or FOX Sports World Espanol.
