- The best soccer stadium in America (the Portland Timbers’ home) is getting 4,000 seats better to the tune of 50 million (privately financed) dollars. That’s how you do it, Merritt.
- Does MLS (and the U.S. national team) have a goalkeeping problem? Arena ain’t having it: “I think you’re making an awful lot out of a couple of games. Did any attacking players miss a goal this past week or two? I don’t think you look at a game and draw all these conclusions. You look at the body of work that players present. You don’t look at one game or two games when there’s a mistake.”
