The floodgates have opened. MLS news is coming thick and fast as GMs, coaches and scouts work to build opening day rosters that will get them into the playoffs.

Finally, more drama for the Canadian national team as Octavio Zambrano lasts just 10 months as the head coach of the men’s national team. His replacement? Well, let’s just say you’ll want Daniel Squizzato’s explanation for why John Herdman, previously the women’s coach, is switching roles.
