Chelsea knocked off Tottenham 2-0 at Wembley Stadium to win the Capital One Cup, Jose Mourinho's first piece of silverware since returning to Stamford Bridge. Blues' captain John Terry called the win massive and hinted it could spur them on to more success this season.

Will win propel Chelsea to Prem and Champs Lge trophies?

Major League Soccer makes a UK move, but can it take the scrutiny?

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

Despite there being no end in sight in the CBA standoff between Major League Soccer and its players, the league has taken a step across the Atlantic.

This week, MLS (in harmony with its global media rights agent, IMG) has entered a partnership with Rupert Murdoch's Sky Sports, which will see the British TV company screen games twice a week during the regular season and throughout the playoffs.

For the league, now in its 20th year, it's a signature seal of approval from another recognized media partner....

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....

NYCFC, David Villa move beyond the Lampard mess and finally take the field

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

This is the second in an occasional series by ESPN FC columnist David Hirshey, a lifelong NYC soccer fan who covered the New York Cosmos beat. David will follow the creation and trajectory of the newest Major League Soccer team, New York City FC, offering his fan's perspective on the fledgling club throughout its maiden season in 2015.

Ever since NYCFC unveiled the marquee face of its franchise in July only to find out in December that, oops, the player actually belonged to a different team, the...

Why Major League Soccer is edging toward a work stoppage

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

As the days tick by until the start of the Major League Soccer regular season, the labor situation involving MLS and the MLS Players Union looks increasingly grim. So grim is the reality that, by my estimation, there is a better than 50-50 chance that there will be a strike.

Never mind the discussions about minimum salaries and the salary cap. Without getting into specifics, an MLS source indicated over the weekend that MLS is committed to increasing both. Rather, it is the diametrically opposed...

New York City FC leave Manchester as their own team ahead of MLS debut

David Villa revealed his delight at scoring New York City's first goal in the club's inaugural match, a 2-0 friendly win over St. Mirren.
New York City FC manager Jason Kreis won the MLS Cup with Real Salt Lake in 2009. Now he faces the challenge of leading a brand-new club.

MANCHESTER, England -- A couple of days after the deal for New York City FC was announced in May 2013, I was at the Manchester City team hotel in New York, on the eve of their Yankee Stadium exhibition game vs. Chelsea.

As various club officials milled around the lobby, I heard the familiar buzz of Mancunian accents, idioms and references that still, rather charmingly, hover around City, no matter how international and monied their current incarnation has become.

Given my history with both cities...
