Bob Bradley's contract, Americans in transition, D.C. United news & notes, Insider live chat

*Bob Bradley's new contract with the U.S. Soccer Federation will expire Aug. 31, 2014 -- not immediately after the World Cup (like for most national team coaches) and not on Dec. 31 (the usual culmination of USSF coaching contracts). What does this tell us? It tells us that the USSF...

Friday Kickaround

*There's real grass at BMO Field in Toronto for the Real Madrid friendly (7:30 p.m., ESPN) -- but only for one glorious night. Real trained there in front of 18,000 fans. No so luck for Washington fans as Saturday's session at FedEx Field is closed to the general public. *Weather...

Thursday Kickaround

*It was a great night for MLS off the field as capacity crowds of 67,000 in Seattle and 20,000 in Bridgeview turned out for non-league matches.

Friday Kickaround

*Read Bloomberg's fascinating story about the potential economic darkside of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka signings. "These transfers are a serious challenge to the idea of fair play and the concept of financial balance in our competitions," UEFA President Michel Platini said. *Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones, whose father was...

D.C. United Will Play.....
