Anthony Pulis -- not that one -- hired as manager of USL side Saint Louis FC

There was good news and bad news in the Pulis family today. In a rather bizarre turn of events, one Anthony Pulis landed a job on the same day that one Tony Pulis lost his.

Anthony Pulis, the son of former West Brom manager Tony Pulis, was named manager of Saint Louis FC in the United Soccer League on Monday, the same day his father was relieved of his duties as the Baggies' boss.

The younger Pulis played for a number of teams in England, after coming up through the ranks with Portsmouth and before...

Seattle Sounders


Been there, done that. This Seattle team knows all the trappings that come with a conference final, so experience is most definitely on the side of coach Brian Schmetzer's men. The Sounders also boast an impressive attacking force that can strike in various forms. If you...

Shorthanded Toronto's depth will be tested by Columbus' methodical style

Taylor Twellman and Adrian Healey preview the Eastern Conference final first leg between Columbus Crew and Toronto FC.
Columbus midfielder Wil Trapp chats with Julie Stewart-Binks about #SaveTheCrew and what Columbus will expect from Toronto.

After Supporters' Shield-winning Toronto FC saw off the New York Red Bulls, and Columbus Crew SC rode a commanding first-leg win over New York City FC, the Eastern Conference final is set. Graham Parker assesses how Toronto and Columbus match up (first leg Tuesday, 8 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN).

Columbus Crew SC


Columbus has shown already in these playoffs that it will play the game and not the occasion. Even as an existential storyline about the team's very future hangs over...

Making sense of Caleb Porter's departure from the Portland Timbers

Steve Nicol believes a clash with ownership was the driving force behind Caleb Porter's departure from the Portland Timbers.
After Caleb Porter's departure from Portland, Herculez Gomez explains why he wouldn't make sense for the United States.
Houston overcame an early Portland goal to shock the Timbers and progress to the Western Conference Final against Seattle.

Caleb Porter's decision to leave the Portland Timbers -- and that's the way it's being painted at the moment -- mystifies on a host of levels. Porter is leaving one of the best jobs in MLS, a team with an owner willing to spend, a talented roster and fantastic crowd support.

So why would he do it? Usually these types of things come down to money and control. The fact remains that half of the coaching staff are holdovers from the John Spencer era. GM Gavin Wilkinson retains significant sway over...

Toronto's Vazquez left to pick up slack left by suspended Altidore, Giovinco

Following their on and off the field clashes against New York, Ale Moreno believes Jozy Altidore and Toronto FC need a serious change in behavior.
With two stars out for Toronto FC in the first leg, Steve Nicol says Columbus have a chance to put the tie away early.

Going into these MLS Cup playoffs, it was hard to see a team that'd be likely to take down Toronto FC. On Sunday, the Reds showed that their greatest rival may be their own tempers.

In an incredibly tense Eastern Conference semifinal second leg vs. the New York Red Bulls, Toronto fell 1-0 but advanced on away goals. The chippy affair seemed to follow the blueprint of a playoff hockey game, with face-to-face encounters brewing nearly every five minutes at BMO Field. It made for scintillating viewing,...

Roldan's constant evolution in Seattle has made him among Sounders' best

Clint Dempsey was able to come back from a heart condition and silence all doubters with a superb 2017 season.

SEATTLE -- When Cristian Roldan was a boy, he fantasized about one day pulling on FC Barcelona's famous blue-and-garnet jersey.

Like many soccer-crazed youngsters of his generation, Roldan idolized Barca midfielders Andres Iniesta and Xavi. They shaped how he saw the game. They were the guys he lined up alongside in his daydreams.

Most of us outgrow such adolescent fantasies by the time we hit our teens. Roldan's experience has been the opposite -- if anything, he's grown into his.
