Nikolic's goal-scoring tops Audi Player Index

Five Aside

How will VAR be implemented in Major League Soccer?

The FC panel review the implementation of VAR at the Confederations Cup, and Raf Honigstein offers a plan to improve it.

If there was one message that was hammered home by Howard Webb, the Professional Referee Organization's manager of VAR (video assistant referee) operations, in Friday's online seminar about the implementation of VAR in MLS starting on Aug. 5, it was that VAR is to be used "with maximum benefit but with minimum interference."

Webb, a former World Cup referee, spent just over an hour explaining the key times when VAR is used, which break down into four major categories: goals, penalty kick decisions,...

New York Red Bulls' Jesse Marsch sticking to his ideals in MLS

Jesse Marsch discusses New York's win over San Jose, the transfer window and facing Minnesota United for the first time.

While pragmatism is the default setting for in Major League Soccer, Jesse Marsch, coach of the New York Red Bulls, has been wedded to his singular philosophy through thick and thin. Marsch describes it as "transition football times 100."

Broken down into layman's terms, his system involves a high and dedicated press, red-and-white shirts in opposition faces even when -- especially when -- the other side has the ball deep inside its own half.

Deployed with the requisite focus and intensity,...

Chicago seeks Eastern Conference supremacy with win over NYCFC

Relive how Nemanja Nikolic has risen to be a prolific goalscorer in MLS this season.

It's somewhat anticlimactic after seven games Wednesday night, but MLS is back in full swing this weekend after the Gold Cup break. Here are three games worth keeping an eye on in Week 20.

East contenders Chicago, New York face off

A battle between second and third in the Eastern Conference takes place at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. The Chicago Fire enter the game as one of the hottest teams in the league and a have a chance to leap back into first place with a point or more in the Bronx....

David Beckham's LA Galaxy debut: An oral history on the 10-year anniversary

Relive the best of David Beckham's LA Galaxy debut against Chelsea on July 21st, 2007.

It was on Jan. 11, 2007, that David Beckham officially signed with the LA Galaxy. But amid subsequent news conferences and photo shoots and handshakes, it still didn't seem quite real. That changed almost six months later on July 21.

On that day, Beckham suited up for the Galaxy for the first time. True, on the surface the match was a meaningless midseason friendly against a Chelsea side trying to get ready for the Premier League season. But it was the first time that observers could say to...

Guzan's adaptation in Atlanta will help determine his place at the World Cup

Brad Guzan sits down for a discussion about returning to MLS with Atlanta United, his time in the Premier League and more.
Brad Guzan expresses disappointment after the United States surrendered the lead in their Gold Cup draw against Panama.

If some veterans arrive in Major League Soccer from Europe with little left to prove, Brad Guzan's situation is very much the opposite.

Less than a year from the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the hotly contested No. 1 goalkeeper spot for the U.S. men's national team is within Guzan's reach, but Tim Howard still stands in his way.

Guzan, 32, could make his Atlanta United debut as early as Friday night at Orlando City (7 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN), having signed from the English club Middlesbrough...

North American sports culture helping MLS clubs buy into analytics

Taylor Twellman looks ahead to 2018 and the potential of Los Angeles FC to put pressure on LA Galaxy in their debut season.

To start out the 2017 season, D.C. United scored just four goals in their first six games. Worse, head coach Ben Olsen's boys were shut out four times. Under normal circumstances, this lack of production would have been cause for concern.

But Stewart Mairs, the team's director of soccer strategy and analysis, had a note for the manager. D.C.'s expected goals, a value that tracks how much a team should be scoring, was much higher than the actual number of goals the team had scored. In other words,...
