  • After far too long (March 19, 2011 if you're counting), Stuart Holden returns to the field, playing the final 16 minutes in a 2-0 FA Cup match against Sunderland. "It felt amazing to be back out on the field doing what I love again," Holden said in an email to The Associated Press. "All the hard work over the past year during some really tough times prepared me well for this moment. Onwards and upwards from here, the work doesn't stop now. It's only the beginning of the next step to playing every week!" His brother Euan attended the game and took the excellent picture shown above.

  • Chris Wondolowski gets a sandwich named after him, which is just like the most perfect thing on so many different levels.

  • Michael Bradley smile alert! Check out the 1:40 mark of this excellent KickTV spot detailing Roma's recent training trip to Florida. Come for the smile, stay for the awesomely nutso supporters.

  • Robbie Rogers and Leeds United part ways amicably. The former Columbus Crew star made four appearances during his time with the English club while injuries kept him on the shelf for most of the stay. Chances are that he'll be returning to the United States, although his rather difficult exit from the Crew might make things a bit more difficult. Still, if he can stay healthy, Rogers could be an important piece to a team.

  • Brek Shea heard you haven't renewed your FC Dallas season tickets yet, and he means to do something about it. Would a pretty terrible promo help? Shea, so goofy yet so wooden at the same time. Dude's a heck of a soccer player, though.

  • Livestrong tries to strong-arm Sporting Kansas City into continuing to pay for the rights to name their stadium, but SKC president Robb Heineman is all yeah, about that. Burn.
