US Men’s Game Against Egypt Canceled

Egyptian_Football_AssociationCHICAGO (Jan. 31, 2011) – The U.S. Soccer Federation has announced that the match between the U.S. Men’s National Team and Egypt has been cancelled due to the current conditions in the country. The teams were scheduled to meet on Feb. 9 in Cairo. After exploring other options, the U.S. has determined it will not play a match on this fixture date.

“We were excited about the opportunity to play against Egypt, but due to the current situation all parties agreed it was best to cancel the match,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “We appreciate the efforts of the Egyptian Football Association and the U.S. State Department as we worked through this situation.”

The USA’s next international friendlies will be played in March, beginning with a match against two-time FIFA World Cup Champion Argentina on March 26 in East Rutherford, N.J. Kickoff at the New Meadowlands Stadium is set for 7 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN2 and Univision. Three days later, the U.S. hosts Paraguay at LP Field in Nashville. That match will be televised live on an ESPN network and TeleFutura beginning at 7 p.m. CT. Fans can follow both matches live on’s MatchTracker and on Twitter website for escorts

Kelly Ross For President (of the MYSA)

On March 5, 2011, the Missouri Youth Soccer Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting in Columbia, Missouri.

The Annual General Meeting is the one opportunity for all member clubs to assemble in one location, for one common purpose; the continued future of the Missouri Youth Soccer Association.

At the AGM, the business of the membership is conducted which includes, but not limited to: approval of the coming seasonal year’s budget, approval of the actions of the board of directors, annual awards, and officer elections. This year, elections for the office of president and secretary will be conducted. Depending on the outcome of the presidential election, there may be a special election for the office of vice-president.

I, Kelly Ross, current MYSA vice-president and Executive Director for Lake Country Soccer have declared my candidacy for the office of president of the Missouri Youth Soccer Association. Travis Ross (no relation), the previous president, resigned this position last July 2010. I have served in an “interim president” capacity since.

I would like to take this opportunity over the next few weeks, leading up to the AGM, to share my goals and objectives for MYSA if elected president. I have five specific areas I believe MYSA needs to channel its energy and focus including enhancing and improving programs, activities, events and membership services. Each week, I will expound on one of the five different areas that I believe requires our greatest attention.

The five areas of concern are:
1. Financial Accountability, fiscal responsibility and transparency
2. Personnel and Human Resources
3. Coaching Education
4. State Programs, activities and events
5. Non-Profit Board orientation & education, Steve “Ole” Olson has graciously allowed me the use of his web site to promote my campaign for the office of MYSA president. Please look for my thoughts coming soon.

Most importantly, we are strongly encouraging every MYSA member club and league to send an authorized delegate to the AGM on March 5th. For more information on the MYSA AGM, visit the MYSA web site at You can send me an email; or

The final Club tournaments of the season wrapped up yesterday, with over 100 area girls from three Clubs (Springfield SC, Missouri Elite FC and Total Prodigy) competing in the Showcase of the South. Gorgeous weather and pretty good results in Little Rock for our girls, look for reports as they come in.

Now they focus on recovering and spending time in the weight room along with some road running. The first practice will be Monday February 28th and based upon the chatter I see on Facebook, the girls are looking forward to the upcoming season which can begin March 18th.

Coaches/Boosters – please download this Schedule_example and return it to me!

That’s especially true for the seniors on the defending State Champion Springfield Catholic squad. The Irish return a Senior Class that is most responsible for the regular run to State that has marked this program recently and is shooting for their 3rd straight trip to the Final 4. It includes:

Rachel Scott, GK – 2nd Team All-State
Carsen Baron, D – 1st Team All-State and co-Defensive Player of the Year, Missouri
Rebecca Mayus, D – 1st Team All-State and co-Defensive Player of the Year, Missouri
Natalie Smid, M/F – 1st Team All-State, co-Regional Offensive Player of the Year
Andrea Parker, M/F – Honorable Mention All-State,
Shelby Hatz, F – 1st Team All-State, co-Regional Offensive Player of the Year

Add in juniors Bekah Bade (who scored the game-winner in the title game) and Megan Goetzinger, 2nd Team All-State and 1st Team Regional players, along with seniors Emily Ortega, Jordan Banasik and Courtney Devlin and Head Coach Ben Timson will need to manage the program to peak in May while offering the underclass opportunities early in anticipation of next year. That includes a player that could very well be in the starting lineup on March 18th in freshman Nicole Ortega.

My coverage area for the coming season will include:
7 Class 1 teams, including defending State Champion Springfield Catholic.

6 Class 2 teams, with 5 teams in District 11 battling for their first ever District title now that Bolivar has moved North to District 12. The Liberators will be in a three-way race with Harrisonville and Warrensburg for the opportunity to advance from District 12

16 Class 3 teams, including Sectional champions Nixa. Willard looks to be well-positioned to earn their 2nd straight District title in District 12 as does Rolla in District 10. Nixa will work hard to defend their title with Glendale and Kickapoo the most likely challengers. Ozark will face a challenge with the loss of their senior class from 2010.

matthew le tissier

Matthew La Tissier, Southhampton

matthew le tissierFrom the Guardian – The Joy of Six: Training-ground set-piece goals From Ernie Hunt’s classic to a magic Matt Le Tissier moment, here are half a dozen goals created on the training ground

Watching La Tissier was a great treat during the 90’s, and that’s the same timeframe Cantano
It’s often said that Matthew Le Tissier didn’t make the most of his sublime talent, though only by the clumpish and irritating. The man scored pretty much every memorable goal of the 1990s, for goodness sake, barely having to break into a brisk walk, never mind a run, for a single one.

From his long-range thrike against Blackburn Rovers to his juggling act at the Dell versus Newcastle United, nearly all Le Tissier’s strikes were instinctive, of course. Which is one of the reasons why this effort stood out from the crowd: a simple ball rolled back by Jim Magilton, allowing Le Tissier time and room to flick it into the air and brush a dipping volley into the net.

Insouciance in art form, it was Le Tissier’s career in microcosm; in fact it could only have been more definitive had he been holding a parcel of fish and chips under one arm while using the back of his free hand to stifle a yawn. A simple trick, granted, but then there’s nothing like watching the experts executing the basics just so. Football’s version of Delia boiling an egg.


If you made it this far and your a Manchester United fan, you’re about to be rewarded. Go back to the original link above and check out the final two videos and some old time views of one of my favorite players – Gordon Strachan – and Alex Ferguson as Strachan’s manager first at Aberdeen and then in his first month at ManU.
