    Yeah I wish I had the time to go watch games and support them more. They have their ups and downs but having a decent run this season and a great run in the Cup.

    Well looks like St. Louis is in the clear lead to get a MLS expansion team in the near future. That would be nice.

    I grew up hating any team in Chicago. Only exception was Chicago Bulls in the NBA back when I cared about the NBA. I am attached myself to DC United when MLS started. It will be nice to have a team here though.

    Haha fair enough. Is they mainly due to state rivalry then? I know Blues & Blackhawks hate each other in Hockey.

    Yup. Cards/Cubs and Blues/Blackhawks. Also had football Cardinals and Rams. Not so much rivals to the Bears but still a team in the same league as a Chicago team.

    So our local paper broke news last night citing an unnamed source that next week MLS will announce St. Louis as the newest expansion team to MLS. This is going to be awesome of this is actually true.

    update: Ownership group has announced a press conference for next Tuesday!

    The USL team is Saint Louis FC. So not sure if they will go with that since part of the owners in this group also own that team or if they will go a different route.

    Ok, just thought that was the nickname for the group put together to make the bid for the team/stadium.

    This group is called MLS4TheLou

    Maybe that was the name of the group that was not able to get the public funding for stadium.

    This group is paying for the stadium.

    Maybe. Other recent expansion teams into MLS came from USL and those teams no longer exist like Cincinnati and Minnesota.

    Another option would be for it to be a reserve team for the MLS team and stay in the USL. Lots of questions to be answered when they make the announcement.

    Ahhh, gotcha.

    At any rate congrats, dude. That town's deserved a first division side for a long time.

    My family on my mom's side is from there and my grandad and uncle both having played and coached up there have talked my ear off about their soccer culture.

    Really like the current look of MLS's franchise makeup. And with St. Louis locking down spot number 28 that only leaves two more before MLS hit their proposed 30 team mark. Sacramento from what I've read has been given the same exclusive rights St. Louis had to negotiate for the 29th spot, still up for grabs though. But assuming they nail it down then we're down to one more. Wikipedia tells me that one spot is down to Las Vegas, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Phoenix. A team in North Carolina would be nice given the kind of success NCAA teams have had there. Don't like Vegas at all, doesn't feel like a soccer town. Phoenix wouldn't be bad.

    The ownership group is having a happy hour for fans after the announcement at one of my favorite places to go. Ugh. I can't go because we are in the middle of moving plus I need to go to PA meeting at my son's school that night.

    It’s official. Team to start play in 2022 and it will not be the USL side. That team is not affected. Probably will end up being an affiliate or something though.

    Games are often scheduled to start at odd times here.

    Don't know for certain why but my best guess is it's related to the tv side of things. Something with either the broadcast or commercial time or even pregame nonsense like the national anthem.

    But seriously. This is the first time in my entire life that the Canadian men's team has beaten the US.

    Now yes the US is quite shit at the moment. But Canada is rising.

    The thing is that the US should be better than we are. Yes we suck on a various levels but geez we should be doing better than we are lately.

    Playoff games so far have been really good. Onto the final 4 this week.

    I’m going Seattle vs Toronto final again.

    The Pozuelo penalty at the end of the last game. The cheek on him. Second time this season against the same goalkeeper that he did the paneka. I think he did an equal amount all season.

    Pretty stoked about Tab Ramos taking over the Dynamo reigns. Not sure how he's done as a coach but he was the first name I remember latching onto to at the national team level as a kid. Hope be can turn things around.

    TFC vs Seattle for the championship, the third time in four years. Both of TFC's goals were bangers. I loved it so.

    I know going of FIFA player ratings is a bit daft, But that Josef Martinez is apparently the best player in the league?

    All Star game to feature MLS All Stars vs. Liga MX All Stars

    Meh. I may be old school but I just want to watch an all star game that is the east vs the west. Don't need to see an all star team take on another all star team or a club team from Europe or whatever.
