It's that time: time for links

New York Red Bulls

It's MLS All-Star voting time - and there are eight Red Bulls on the ballot (before we get carried away, there are eight players from EVERY team on the ballot). VOTE RBNY.

Giovanni Savarese is not inclined to play down the RBNY-Cosmos US Open Cup match-up.

Mike Petke is as puzzled as the rest of us about RBNY's up-and-down 2014 season.

MLS

When NYCFC does eventually get some players, we know one or two (or three) will be BIG names. The first of those is looking a lot like David Villa.

Robbie Keane's club vs country dispute is resolved: he will play a couple of games for Ireland in June, and miss one game for LA.

This is worse for Costa Rica than Real Salt Lake, at least in the short term, but RSL forward Alvaro Saborio is out of the World Cup and most of the rest of the MLS regular season.

NWSL

Mexico international Monica Ocampo is enjoying her time with Sky Blue FC.

Chicago Red Stars 2-0 win over Sky Blue this week was the club's fourth road win in a row.

Houston Dash, meanwhile, has lost six of its last seven, but is guaranteed to appear in one-third of NWSL's nationally televised games, including the one against Sky Blue on August 9.

US Soccer

Sports Illustrated has got to the second-best of its Top 10 US Soccer goals.

The Onion may have issued the final word on the Landon Donovan matter.

The New York Times caught up with the Ghana national team, USMNT's first opponents in Brazil.

Other

Rickie Lambert, who got cut by Liverpool's youth system and was scoring his first goal as a pro for Macclesfield Town around the same time Steven Gerrard was getting his first goals for England, is officially a Liverpool transfer target.

The Guardian offers a list of the top 100 World Cup players of all time.

Alexi Lalas has jumped on the World Cup song gravy train.
