Starting Eleven Football Blog Roundup

Some Valentine's Day footballing love to the soccer blogosphere this morning. Here's a bunch of news and notes...
  • MLS Rumors is out in full force with a bevy of rumors about the next wave of international stars headed for fame and fortune in the U.S. How about Ronaldo? Harry Kewell? Craig Bellamy? Many more…
  • My Soccer Blog quotes an MLS source that Philadelphia will be MLS’ 16th franchise. St. Louis, meanwhile, like its beloved Cardinals, will have to wait ‘til next year.
  • As Chelsea welcomes its players back from the African Cup of Nations, it’s still without John Terry. No captain? No problem says FootballingWorld. Check out their pick for the man to wear the armband.
  • Kartik at American Soccer Spot reminisces about the U.S. lone victory over Brazil, 10 years ago last Sunday. It’s a good read and there’s some interesting insight, in particular about Kasey Keller.
  • Finally, Stateside Footy praises US Soccer’s scheduled friendly against England scheduled for May 28 at Wembley. He reports talks are under way for another match against a top five team in June: Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Spain and Germany are the current top five.
