Andrew Caballero-Reynolds

What goes good with your breakfast? A set of Morning Links.

New York Red Bulls

Not only will the Red Bulls be without Ibrahim Sekagya, but Tim Cahill will also be unavailable for tonight's match against the Houston Dynamo.

MLSSoccer.com has a preview of NY v Houston.

MLS

We're starting two new features here at Once a Metro that take a look at MLS as whole. First up is Things we learned in MLS, and second is the MLS team of the Week.

The Professional Referee Organization (PRO) seems to finally be taking it's job seriously by taking a harder line with the referees.

NWSL

The NWSL's latest Power Rankings are out.

US Soccer

Jermaine Jones shows us how much of a man (and US Soccer fan) he is by getting a US flag star tattooed on his knee.

Miscellaneous

Barcelona was given a 14 month transfer ban by FIFA earlier this month. Now that ban has been temporarily suspended pending an appeal.

We're just over a month away from the World Cup, and there are major issues in Brazil.

Shares in Manchester United (yes, they are a publicly traded team) rose after the sacking of David Moyes.

Speaking of Moyes, follow SB Nation's live coverage of his firing here.
