    The Atlanta/Columbus game was mad, how did it finish 0-0?

    Hahahahaha.

    But yeah 0-0 was madness, awful pens from Atlanta too.
    Atlanta were going to slip up somewhere to be honest. Its been coming for weeks.

    They had 2 or 3 good chances to seal 2nd place and avoid that knockout game but it just never happened for one reason or another. Coupled with all the Atlanta hype, the writing was on the wall so to speak.

    I thought they looked knackered. Josef looked nowhere near as energetic as usual and was regularly slow to get back onside if he did make a run. Almiron struggled to get in the game though could just as easily have won it with one of three wonderstrikes that went close, I wonder how fit he was.

    I don't think they will ever get relegation from MLS but USL could totally do promotion and relegation between all of their leagues though.

    Reports are saying Brad Friedel is going to be the new coach of New England. Should be interesting.

    I can't say I know of any of them but based on off-season rumours it looks like MLS clubs are actively recruiting South American attackers. Likely to be some real gems in there and a few more Almirons.

    MLS says Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, and Sacramento are the four finalists for two expansion team slots to be announced in December.

    No St. Louis.

    Cincy showed huge support for their USL side that made a deep run in the US Open Cup. Should be interesting to see who gets the teams.

    Cos it's warm and has David Beckham. I'd accept Joe Cole and the Tampa Bay Rowdies too.

    I'm nervous about all this expansion.

    Yes Atlanta appears to have been a roaring success. But at some point they're going to completely whiff on a couple cities and hopefully that doesn't start the league on a spiral.

    Sadly not. Because the fucking geniuses put a championship game at 4PM in the afternoon local time when I'm still at work. For one of the teams that means 1PM is the start for their fans (Seattle). It's ridiculous that they couldn't get a prime time slot for the championship.

    True. Expanding to that untapped Euro market. Nothing quite like a subzero game to really entice people over.

    It's unfortunate what a polarizing figure Bradley is. The man plays such a useful, valuable game. But it's always either feast or famine in his evaluations by folks, with one seemingly always a heated reaction to the very idea of the other.

    Speaking only to his national team play and criticism here as I've only caught a smattering of his club side.

    His style of play at times can look lazy and when his team loses it gives the impression he didn’t care enough.

    He ran that game from start to finish. First ever 10/10 I've given at work. Delighted with that, thoroughly deserved win for TFC. Hopefully the cup is on display when I'm there next year.

    Nashville joining MLS. Still bitter of people not voting for a stadium here because St. Louis would have been one of the teams added.

    Here is the list of people going for US Soccer President in Feb.

    Paul Caligiuri, Kathy Carter, Carlos Cordeiro, Steve Gans, Kyle Martino, Hope Solo, Michael Winograd, Eric Wynalda

    I believe Carter is the one that MLS commissioner is backing

    Should be interesting to see how this shakes out and what it does for our nationals teams and what not in the future.

    Mad results in that opening weekend. No Red Bulls or Chicago Fire playing until next week though?

    What a bounce back for TFC tonight in the champions league. Sure the pitch was an absolute embarrassment (who could have predicted 3 games in 9 games in Canadian winter might lead to an awful pitch?). But after that shocking defeat to Columbus on the weekend, beating Tigres is great.

    Still everything to play for in the second leg though since they did get that away goal.

    Same for Colorado. There's an odd number of teams this year so 1 or 3 teams take a break each week.

    Its been a great week for MLS in the champions league in general. The return legs for both TFC and Sounders are going to be tough but if they can make it through along with Red Bulls it would be a massive moment for MLS and could signify a big turning point.

    Its been a great week for MLS in the champions league in general. The return legs for both TFC and Sounders are going to be tough but if they can make it through along with Red Bulls it would be a massive moment for MLS and could signify a big turning point.
    Ah yes the new LA team now.

    Good that all 3 MLS teams won their 1st leg QF.

    MLS goes 2 for 2 last night advancing to the semis. Seattle will look to make it 3 for 3.

    Giovinco with another amazing free kick.

    Now TFC's reward? Likely Club America. Great.

    Glad to hear that MLS teams are doing well. They crash and burn so much at this stage because of the timing of it.

    MLS announced a match between the La Liga champ and MLS champ and it will be an ongoing thing. This is nice. I remember that year they tried to do a tournament with MLS teams and La Liga teams and the interest was not there and they only did it once. Just doing the champs facing off to gain some interest is probably better. Our teams are still play each other in the champions league.

    FFS. Trump is going to cost us the World Cup bid. Already going to be a fight even though it shouldn't be and of course don't forget we were screwed over already. But he needs to shut his mouth. grumble

    So seeing the various talks and rumors of Rooney moving to DC United. I am a DC fan and that would be cool to see him here and all but at the same time why would he want to come to DC. We have not been good at all in a few years now and in last place right now even.

    That red card decision is whack, how can anyone who has seen VAR in action think it's a good idea?

    End of the day it's still CONCACAF trained refs that are making the final VAR decisions. The Higuain call was right in my mind but the lack of consistency with missing the Martinez swipe undermines it.

    It was a trip, it wasn't a red card. Not reckless, no studs, low chance of injury and he's on control. The fact it's trained referees doesn't make the blind bit of difference, it's proven to just be giving them two bites at giving the wrong decision. The only difference is it's ruining the experience for the TV viewer and dramatically ruining the experience for the match going fan.

    What about the Waston decision the other week? It cost 5 minutes of game time to get a video review and ultimately give a red card. The red card then got overturned in midweek. It's so so bad.

    You misunderstood what I was saying about concacaf refs. They are the absolute worst refs in the world.

    Having said all that, I still like the idea of VAR but I think for many things it's taking too long to make a decision. I also disagree that it ruins the experience for the TV viewer. For controversial calls they get replayed all the time anyways VAR or not. For people in the stadium though it is how long it takes that ruins it and until they can speed it up it will continue to be a downside.

    Getting the correct decision though in my mind is always going to be the most important, the problem is many times they still don't.

    It's nice that this also guarantees that this way the US at least qualifies for the World Cup in 2026.

    Rooney signs with DC United.

    I am excited but shocked at the same time. I like he is coming to my team but surprised he is signed with the worst team in the league. Hope he can help turn things around for them though as time goes.

    Just saw highlights of the game but nice start for him and hey DC won in the debut of their new stadium. Pretty sure they are still in last place though even though I love them.

    DC turning things around at least short term with Rooney as the new captain. The other day he ran back and made a great defensive stop and brought the ball forward and made a great cross for Acosta to put in the winning goal in stoppage time. Yesterday he had two goals including one from a nice free kick. Lets see if DC can keep it up.

    Well at this point I will be happy if they just don't finish last. If they build on this for next season it all should be good. I am glad we got Hamid back for now as well.

    What a turn around. Rooney might have been the spark they needed. They are on the cusps of the playoffs. They could get there.

    I am trying to not get my hopes up again. Gerber has basically said that if St. Louis can get a stadium deal in place with a stable ownership group we will get one of the expansion teams. Hell before the public vote last year that shot down the stadium deal MLS said if we were awarded a team that we would get the all-star game within five years of joining the league.

    Again I am not getting my hopes up. This is a different group and different deal and looks like won't need a public vote because they are not asking for as much help from the city so only the aldermen would vote on the legislation needed to get it done. That is great and probably increases the chances of it getting done but just have trouble believing that it will get done.

    But we shall see.

    Okay guys. I need someone to buy this poor man a Rooney DC United jersey. I was excited about him coming but never thought he could turn things around like he did but he sparked something. They clinched a spot with a game to go. What a turn around. Lets see how the playoffs go.

    My hopes are up again. St. Louis Aldermen approved tax breaks for the ownership group to build and pay for the stadium. No public funding. Ownership group is paying for it all. Big move towards MLS

    So looks like St. Louis is in a pretty good spot to land a team in MLS. We shall see.

    The local USL Championship side Saint Louis FC will be hosting the Chicago Fire in the 4th round of the US Open Cup here in a couple weeks. I would love to go see that. Fully expect the Fire to send a reserve squad mostly and probably will still win but still always cool to see an MLS side come to a lower division side for a US Open Cup match up.
