Sound Off - Thunder doesn't scare Brad; Zidane on Bale; #USAvMEX prep

Did you guys know that USA-Mexico is tomorrow? It's going to be off the chain, for serious.

Another match, another three points for your Seattle Sounders Football Club. Up next is a visit from Real Salt Lake on Friday...but before that a massive USA-Mexico match in Columbus and this gem of a "Sound Off". Dig in, Rave Greenies.

In his first column as a Goal, uh, columnist, my good buddy Ives Galacrep waxes no why Jermaine Jones needs to step up for the USA. (Goal)

Right there with him at Goal, Kyle McCarthy takes a closer look at Sporting Kansas City and its recent sale of long-time forward Kei Kamara to Middlesbrough. (Goal)

Ricky Lambert is being asked to score goals for England...and this is why England won't be winning the 2014 World Cup. (

So there was once this guy named Zinedine Zidane. He once signed for Real Madrid for a mere €75 million. He has come out and said that Gareth Bale's fee was way too high...and that his was, too. (

Would you look at that! Seven wins in eight matches puts the Sounders second in Sports Illustrated's power rankings. (

The USMNT is in a cheery mood ahead of its match with Mexico, despite the poor result in Costa Rica. (

Bruce Arena = not a happy camper. (

So MLS and EA Sports have a little cover vote thing going on for FIFA14...and Clint is one of the options. If he doesn't win, I'll eat my hat. VOTE. (

Hey look! The Three Stooges are playing soccer in China now! (Deadspin)

One Direction is a pretty big deal, apparently. Who knew? (Who Ate All The Pies)
