This is American Soccer is one of the most literate blogs covering the sport. Unlike those of us who whip off a couple of snarky comments while linking to a grab bag of different stories, (ahem) blogger Adam Spangler takes a different approach.

I know Kljestan reasonably well, but chatting with him on a regular basis after training or in the locker room after games is no substitute for hanging out with him, his family and friends at length.
