New York City FC’s vision of living up to its namesake with a venue close to the heart of the city isn’t going so well. The Major League Soccer expansion club, set to temporarily play in Yankee Stadium for at least 2015, is back to square one on a finding stadium site. An attempt to secure land in the Bronx fell through on Tuesday, forcing NYC FC to look elsewhere. A property in Queens is next in line.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Galaxy coach Bruce Arena had some interesting things to say about MLS in an interview with the Washington Post last month, and now he will be fined heavily for it. MLS commissioner Don Garber plans to slap Arena with “a major fine” over comments he made criticizing the MLS single-entity structure and a failed deal to bring Sacha Kljestan to the Galaxy.

And the Seattle Sounders, potential favorites for winning this year’s MLS Cup, were crowned the winners of the U.S. Open Cup late Tuesday. They beat the Philadelphia Union to earn their fourth Open Cup.

  1. Arena is right! MLS is a comple joke when it comes to transfers, they pick and chose what they want and the clubs have no say, it’s ridiculous! MLS will cause their own destruction with such archaic “rules”
