The Major League Soccer season is still two weeks away, but there were some major news stories making waves this week on the MLS landscape, with Landon Donovan and Robbie Rogers serving as the key newspapers in recent days.
In the latest episode of The SBI Podcast, co-host Garrett Cleverly and I discuss Donovan’s decision to delay his return to the LA Galaxy until late March, and we talk about the news of Robbie Rogers’ decision to come out as a gay man and step away from pro soccer.
Those are just two of the topics we discuss. We also touch on the U.S. Men’s National Team player pool as well as on who is doing well in MLS pre-season. We talk Chivas USA, and their unbeaten pre-season and their roster moves, and we also discuss the U.S. Under-20 national team as they prepare to kick off CONCACAF Under-20 qualifying later today.
Be sure to give the show a listen and let us know what you think about the topics covered.
