    Loons’ sudden lack of depth being tested

    Way back at the start of the MLS season, it looked like one of Minnesota United’s strengths this season was finally going to be team depth. I wrote about it, in the context of Kervin Arriaga, who at the time was going to be a useful midfield backup. The Loons had multiple options for many […]

  • Robin Lod is Officially MNUFC’s top-choice striker… What does that mean?

    The Finnish international has now scored in three straight games for Minnesota lined up at the 9 position. In total, he’s scored six goals and has added an assist through 13 matches this season while finding himself in the starting XI.

  • Match Preview: MNUFC at Dallas

    Last season, games against the Texas teams kept the Loons afloat in their chase for the playoffs. This season, the Loons have already gone to Texas once, and it wasn’t pretty. This one’s at the slightly odd time of 6pm on Sunday evening, but it’s not a national TV game – it’s on Channel 23 […]

  • Match Preview: Nashville SC at Minnesota

    Ah, Nashville. It’s the home of country music, delicious hot chicken, and 93% of the bachelorette parties that take place east of the Mississippi River in any given year. And of course, this year it’s also home to some Western Conference MLS action, because nobody at the league office in New York owns a map! […]

  • Match Preview: Minnesota United at Philadelphia Union

    Let’s go! Minnesota United enters its 2022 campaign similar to virtually any other team in their sixth season of existence. With the highest expectations they’ve ever had. A revamped pool of strikers and increased depth nearly everywhere on the pitch springs hope and optimism from the Loons’ faithful, who saw a club unable to get […]
