A goodbye for now
   January 31, 2016 (9:05 AM) by Matt Benson

Hey guys, I am guessing you have probably noticed by now since I have barely touched the site, but I am officially going on “hiatus”.  I think that is the word bands use when they break up but leave the door open slightly for a potential return.

I started this site on January 31, 2010 and it is now January 31, 2016.  It was a fun ride and thank you very much for coming back all these years, but my life has changed a bit and it is not allowing me to run this site the way I would like to.  I am still going to have the @socceroverthere account going with retweets of news and the usual horrible jokes during USMNT games.

I want to say a special thanks to Howie Michaels, Jon Arnold, Will Reno, John D. Halloran, Roderick MacNeil, RJ DeMello and David Ansell.  Go follow them on Twitter and continue to support them like you have this site.  They helped this site many times over the years and they are still doing great things within the online soccer community.

I was a nobody in 2010 when I started this site and now it is 2016 and I am still a nobody but I know a lot of new great people within this online soccer community.  So thanks for the ride.

My sort-of State of the Union regarding the site
   December 15, 2015 (8:15 AM) by Matt Benson

So you might have noticed that I have disappeared over the last two weeks.  To get right to the point, the last couple months have been overwhelming between work, this site and other aspects of my life.  I am a little burnt out on everything.

I don’t want to shut down the site for good as there is five years of hard work between myself and others on here, so my plan of action right now is to take off the rest of this month (while also stepping back at some other things in my life).  Hopefully things can calm down then I can get back at it at some point in January with some recharged batteries.

I am sorry to those of you who have relied on this site for news/goals/highlights and want to thank the many dedicated fans who have kept coming back to the site over the years.

Have a happy holidays and see you guys in 2016.
