First Class: NASL Team of the Spring 2016

The final week of the Spring was rather exciting. Indy Eleven remained undefeated but, more importantly, rallied to score the four goals needed to win the Spring title over the New York Cosmos. It was an exhilarating performance from Indy as they thrashed the Carolina Railhawks. I wanted to wait until

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 8

I've been fantastically wrong in my weekly predictions, and it's been wonderful. This season's NASL is perhaps the most competitive yet and certainly the most interesting (infuriating). There have been superb individual performances every week from nearly every team regardless of outcome. So, as we move towards the conclusion of

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 7

It might be a bit late. I usually try to get out our Best XI ahead of the league's official Team of the Week, but I thought this week to lie in wait. I've got to say that with only a couple of agreements, my Best XI doesn't quite match

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 5

New York Cosmos goalkeeper Jimmy Mauer was by far the best between the stick this week. Centerback Timbo for the Ottawa Fury was more than a match for Miami FC's 'offense' while managing to score the opening goal. But the Fury need to make a decision about who to pair with

Indy Eleven: Bring on Edmonton

INDIANAPOLIS: The past weekend sought to be another 3 points to Lady Victory as the Eleven rallied to beat Rayo OKC in Oklahoma City last weekend. Now the Eleven will host their 3rd home game of the season against Canadian side FC Edmonton. Coming into this match we have to keep
