Philadelphia Union Continue Defensive Makeover [Dave Zeitlin, MLSSoccer.com] - A year after being signed by the squad, Arrieta peaced out.  More on what our squad has been doing with the defense during the offseason.

4-3-3: Go Big or Go Home [Eli Pearlman-Storch, Philly Soccer Page] - A good thought peace and what the Union might look with a 4-3-3 formation.  A swarming four man attack would mean more goals.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC Fill First Two International Slots [Nick Rosano, Goal.com] - With the signings of midfielders Nizar Khalfan and Gershon Koffie - from Tanzania and Ghana, respectively, featured on Vancouver's second division team in 2010.

Kenny Cooper Being Introduced at 10:30 AM [Geoff Gibson, Stumptown Footy] - That's 1:30 pm for east coasters.  Cooper is headed back to the MLS - he started in the Manchester United youth system - and he's likely to be an immediate staple for the Timbers.
