Headlines
U.S. Soccer has selected Dave Sarachan to lead the USMNT in their friendly agaisnt Portugal in two weeks. Sarachan was a long time assistant to Bruce Arena. Since most of Arena's staff are still on the payroll, the federation felt it made sense for one of them to step into the role, as opposed to Tab Ramos, who has spent his time with the U-20 team. They also mentioned that the search for a permanent head coach will not be a swift one and a strategy for selection is still being worked out. There's no real rush for one, either. The USA doesn't have a competitive match for about two years after their elimination from the World Cup.

LA Galaxy fired general manager Pete Venegas yesterday. The team missed out on the playoffs and came darn close to finishing with the worst record in MLS this year. Head coach Sigi Schmid will assume player personnel responsibilities for the future. Schmid was brought on to lead the struggling team at the end of July, but things were beyond repair. Now, he will have the winter to construct his side with the aim of returning to the playoffs next year.

As far as actual playoff teams are concerned, Sporting Kansas City got some bad news about their goalkeeper. Tim Melia will miss the knockout round match agaisnt Houston Dynamo thanks to the hamstring injury that's kept him out for the final three games of the regular season. The Dynamo will be without defender A.J. DeLaGarza, though, who tore his ACL in the season finale and will miss the entire playoffs.
