American Soccer Roundup - Holiday Edition

Since I was slacking on posting updates over the past few days, I figured I would link a few of the more interesting stories that I came across over the break. In a big move for the reigning MLS Cup Champions, the front office resigned Chad Marshall to a multi-year contract with the Crew. Andrew Hush over at ESPN posted the second part of his interview with Clint Dempsey (Part 1 is right here), and Buzz Carrick continued his series of articles profiling the college seniors we might see in the MLS draft. Check out the lists for midfielders and defenders. O and last but not least, check out this article from Steve Davis for ESPN, profiling the power players of professional and international soccer in the United States. Davis gives us a nice glimpse of the people behind the scenes of the leagues and teams that we follow.
