Brendan Doherty, a native of a small town in Western New York that no one has ever heard of, loves soccer; watching, analyzing, discussing, writing about, coaching, and most importantly playing. A couple summers ago he had a Eureka! moment with his buddy while reading a soccer blog about Tottenham Hotspur (Cartilage Free Captain on SBNation); "Hey, I could do that stuff." Since that time he's written on a lot of topics but mostly USL-Pro and things related to Mexico and youth development. You can read his other work at Doherty Soccer and Soccer Newsday.
