    I was looking for some books on US soccer. More emphasis on the international scene than the domestic leagues. I know of Roger A's two books but any more would be much appreciated.

    Soccer in a Football World by Dave Wangerin isn't a bad place to start.

    Just go to amazon, and look at what people who have bought those books have bought.

    Long Range Goals, Beau Dure - a history of MLS.
    Distant Corners, David Wangerin - vignettes about individual subjects in US soccer history (e.g. Bill Jeffrey at Penn State, the NASL's Oakland Clippers, etc.)

    Colin Jose has some excellent statistical references for the ASL (1921-1933) and the NASL.

    Dave Litterer has a great list here:
