The Crew don't play the LA Galaxy at all this year...so, no chance to see Perry Kitchen in Columbus during the regular season MLS matches, unfortunately.

...98 games in the Premier League puts DeAndre Yedlin on the verge of joining a select group of Americans to have achieved the century mark in the English Premier League. Only three other field players besides DeAndre have started more than 30 games in a season (Geoff Cameron, Clint Dempsey x2 and Brian McBride x2).  ...

 

... To me it is unreal how undervalued his accomplishments are. Regardless, he’ll continue to be a polarizing figure for his country. He’s a great player and with Reggie Cannon and Sergiño Dest pushing him at the right back position for the national team will be challenged for years to come. For club he’s battled for his career and doing some amazing things in the top flight league in the world. Cheers to DeAndre Yedlin as he hopefully rings in the new year with a century in the Premier League.

Since it is December 26th, and we're talking International Leagues - Happy Boxing Day to All the Zips SOC fans!  Watching Chelsea v. Southampton right now, looking forward to Man U and Yedlin's Newcastle with my leftover lunch feast, and wash it all down this afternoon as my fellow Kopites and I gather for a pint to watch our beloved Liverpool duel it out in a first v. second match-up with Leicester City.  What a GLORIOUS Day it is/will be.....

Curious ...  Michael Obafemi's goal, Chelsea (no Zips), Southampton (no Zips) are related to the Zips in Pro Leagues how???

Lest the writer forgets, 4+ years ago Caleb and Darlington won an MLS Cup together in Columbus for the Portland TimberFC. Let's get that MLS Cup for Columbus now!

The first 2 rounds of the MLS draft occurred today.

Tom Smart was selected as the 19th pick in the 2nd round (45th overall) by the LA Galaxy.

Rounds 3 and 4 of the draft will occur on Monday the 13th

Zips have had players drafted(or signed as homegrowns) in every draft since the 2008 MLS draft
