Sacramento Republic's Rodrigo Lopez scores super Charlie Adam-esque goal

It's not often we stray into the wild and untamed confines of the United Soccer League (i.e., the third tier of the North American football pile) here on The Toe Poke, but we would be remiss not to share the following goal with you.

What you're about to witness is a 60-yard missile to rival the one scored by Charlie Adam from well inside his own half against Chelsea a week or two back.

The man responsible: Sacramento Republic midfielder Rodrigo Lopez, who glanced up, saw Whitecaps keeper Spencer...

Kaka scores wondergoal for Orlando City and the Colorado Rapids add a DP

Our experts weigh in on the motives behind a potential strike in the MLS.

This is normally the time on the calendar when thoughts turn to the best way to celebrate the opening weekend of the MLS season. For fans lucky enough to hold tickets to an opening week home match as well as those who watch the league from the comfort of home, the long-awaited return of games is an opportunity to get excited about the teams and storylines that will carry their interest from March until November.

Unlike most years, however, the prospect of a strike could delay the start of the season....

February is normally the time when teams in Major League Soccer head off to sunny destinations in Florida and Arizona to play preseason tournaments and get ready for the upcoming season. This year, Austin, Texas, was the site of a preseason tournament, a first for the city.

Yet instead another humdrum affair among four teams -- D.C. United, Columbus Crew SC, FC Dallas and the hometown Austin Aztex of the USL Pro -- there was clearly an emphasis on claiming the top prize. Was it the satisfaction...

D.C. United wins a preseason trophy plus America's new star soccer couple

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno sits down with Sporting KC forward Dom Dwyer as he believes his side are preparing for a special 2015 MLS season, and proclaims he is quite the singer.

The countdown continues, with the planned start of the MLS season, March 6, creeping closer with every minute. As team preparations kick into high gear, coaches are fleshing out their best lineups in preseason matches from Arizona to Manchester.

Although preseason doesn't have any bearing on the upcoming season, there are hints of what's to come in each match, even it isn't always obvious at first sight.

With this period still being the offseason, the focus remains split between the on-the-field...

MLS players' strike: Explaining reasons behind the potential work stoppage

Former MLS player Alejandro Moreno thinks the players are ready to strike, while former New England Revolution coach Steve Nicol thinks a new collective bargaining agreement will be agreed upon.

Things have never been better for MLS. The league continues to grow both in terms of the number of teams and attendance. Frank Lampard, David Villa and Kaka are all poised to begin their first seasons in MLS. Nothing can halt that kind of momentum, right?

Actually there's something that could stop the league dead in its tracks -- a strike by the players. Jeff Carlisle answers all the pertinent questions on the matter.

Q: Why would the players strike?

A: MLS and the MLS Players Union are trying to...

L.A. at the White House, Orlando's buzz, Oyongo's contract issues?

ESPN FC's Adrian Healey and Taylor Twellman discuss the changing dynamic in Major League Soccer, where the "big shots" of the U.S. squad like Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley are returning to MLS and receiving quite large salaries.

The latest week in the painfully slow march to the first match of 2015 pushed the calendar past the one-month threshold in the countdown to the new season. With camps in full swing and coaches now putting their players through their paces in preparation for the resumption of competitive soccer, fans are starting to ramp up their own excitement. A low hum of anticipation emanates across the land from places like Orlando, where thousands of purple-clad supporters anxiously wait for their team's first-ever...
