MLS, US players on playing alongside Kyle Beckerman

This nice piece on Kyle Beckerman over at gives some good perspective on how he performed in the Gold Cup and what his position brings to the table. While he's sometimes been slated for who-knows-what-reason (perhaps it's the hair), it's nice to see him getting some recognition from people who actually understand his position.

Interesting to note: El Salvador's coach Augustin Castillo describes how he tried to set his side out to limit Beckerman's tactical involvement and failed.

Also interesting is this little quote from one Mix Diskerud: "He wins so many balls and is a really good team player. It's just fun to stand next to him, watch him do his thing and then suddenly you have the ball and you can make a play."

Grantland: MLS's most interesting rivalry

Graham Parker of Grantland (a fine writer, I must add) penned this piece on the fascinating rivalry between Real Salt Lake and Sporting Kansas City.

Are we truly diametrically opposed in tactical considerations?

Attinella back with RSL

Jeff Attinella has returned to the squad, leaving us again with four goalkeepers. He won team of the week honors once during his time with Ft. Lauderdale Strikers of the NASL. Does this open an opportunity for the young Lalo Fernandez to go on loan? He's impressed during the reserves matches he's played this season.
