OFFSIDE REMARKS
On underachieving, watermelons and grapes

Years ago, some colleagues of mine were talking about the attributes of the U.S. men's national team. One of us said that the U.S. players never give up, that they would keep grinding away, even in defeat. Well, I never thought I'd see the day, but Saturday's fiasco of a third-place game turned into an embarrassment for U.S. Soccer and U.S. soccer.

July 26, 2015
EVERYTHING CHANGES
Addition of Pirlo, Lampard could be game changers for NYC FC

BRONX, NY---Most expansion teams find first-year success difficult to come by. Lineup and roster changes are inevitable. Sometimes they are successful, sometimes not so much. For New York City FC, the arrivals of Frank Lampard, who has yet to play because of a nagging thigh injury, and Andrea Pirlo, who made his debut in Sunday’s 5-3 win over fellow expansion side Orlando City SC, might have shifted the playing field. Perhaps even seismically.

CUTTONE’S CONCEPTS
Taking the long view with the US National Team

CHESTER, Pa.---Let’s be clear. Results matter in sports. Coaches who don’t get results get fired. It's plain and simple. But there are different kind of results. Yes, winning the Gold Cup, appearing in the final, even winning the third place game should mean something. Same for getting to the Confederations Cup, even though it is a contrived tournament created by FIFA to further clog the calendar and extract money from fans and sponsors. But not winning those competitions (or in the case of the Confederations Cup not getting there) is not the end of the world.

A TROPHY ON THE LINE
Winning ICC should give Red Bulls a lift

With a midweek 4-2 win over Chelsea in the International Champions Cup, the Red Bulls have a chance to win the annual friendly tournament.

TRAINING DAY
Thierry Henry amazes while practicing with his old club

It was a question said in jest and certainly answered in jest by Red Bulls head coach Jesse Marsch, who laughed when asked on Saturday if he will be trying to sign Thierry Henry for the remainder of the season.

REPORTERS NOTEBOOK
Red Bulls beating Chelsea with youth and reserve players is borderline absurd

If this match had actually meant something, Las Vegas would be swimming in debt right now. Somehow, improbably so, the Red Bulls beat Chelsea 4-2 on Wednesday. That the reigning English Premier League champions lost is shocking enough to most. That they did so with most of their stars playing is enough to make eyes pop.
