    The defending and goalkeeping for a couple of those goals is horrific. Some good goals though.

    haha ok I understand why you don't support RBNY after our first meeting this season! And yes Red Bull Arena is very nice. It reminds me of a small Allianz Arena only the outside doesn't change colours.

    No I doubt they will be in MLS they will start in the lower League USL Pro or NASL. We don't do promotion or relegation. Plus there are more city's that need a team other than a second New York. I think another issue is that they are Umbro only and MLS is Adidas until 2018. Our league just like what the A-Leafue had has a monopoly on Kit supplier.

    Ahhh, fair call. Hate it how shirt manufacturers have to supply for each team. Our league has just stopped that and we're seeing some brilliant Adidas, Errea and Hummel kits coming out.

    Yea a while back MLS had every major shirt sponsor. It's a shame that it's gone the league looks like zombies now.

    Watching Real Salt Lake V NY Red Bulls on ESPN just now and one of the fans is singing IJCGE, funny that a song we actually started is sung at American games now.

    Chicago Fire fans have been signing it at most home games since last season. Not sure when exactly it started but it is sung at most Fire home games.

    The one issue I have with MLS supporters groups is the recycling and copying of songs. I hear the exact same stuff on every telecast.

    You could always connect with your local supporters group and change that, y'know.

    There's nothing in San Diego and I'm almost always out of the country anyways. Tijuana is the team here, MLS missed its chance unfortunately. :54:

    Such an odd move. No income tax in Washington state though. I'm worried about him, at his age, playing on turf in a league with the physicality of Scotland right before a World Cup.
