re: "Legendary Announcement" - Austin FC is your newest MLS squad - Michael Stein
I think the Texas teams’ struggles are easily explained. Dallas plays in Frisco, which is way too far north for most people in Dallas-FTW to even consider going to games. And they do a horrible job of marketing the team. They’ll start selling out soon because Frisco is growing like crazy, but the...

re: "Legendary Announcement" - Austin FC is your newest MLS squad - Michael Stein
I’m not happy with how this team came to exist, but at least it didn’t kill the Crew. I think the team will be a huge success, in spite of Precourt. Precourt is a snake, but he’ll probably sell the team once the new TV deal is negotiated in 2022. He doesn’t have the money to keep up with where th...

re: Sigi Schmid passes away at age 65 - Michael Stein
Between his time at UCLA, various stints in MLS, and the youth national teams, Sigi had a huge impact on American soccer, and was successful nearly everywhere he went. Many professionals were mentored by him. He will be greatly missed. RIP, Sigi. ...

re: Do y’all think that Cincy FC could be the next ATL - Michael Stein
If Jorge Mas is able to execute his full vision for Inter Miami, meaning 100% approval for all his development plans for the property, I think they will be the next “superclub” in MLS. They will have the money and appeal to sign players most MLS teams couldn’t dream of. I can even see Ronaldo retiri...

re: Ottawa Fury FC future in doubt - Michael Stein
Yeah. That’s exactly what they’re doing. CONCACAF is arguing that since the CPL is finally established, there’s no need for Ottawa to be granted special permission to play in the USL anymore. But since Ottawa wasn’t expecting this to happen, they’re kind of screwed. It could cause the team to tempor...

Building a SSS would be a needless waste of money for Atlanta when they draw huge these crowds. It’s not gonna happen. Same for Seattle. Teams like New England and NYCFC should absolutely get a SSS, though. MLS needs to crack the whip on that....

Atlanta’s midfield is so good at winning 50-50 balls. They always put themselves in the right spots. It’s impressive to watch....

re: tOfficial 2018 MLS Cup Gamethread -- 7:08 on FOX - Michael Stein
Should be a great game. Atlanta will be heavy favorites, but Portland certainly are capable of getting the job done. They are full of veterans who won this game 3 years ago, and won’t be intimidated. I expect Atlanta will be agressive, and Portland will sit back....

re: MLS Playoffs - Michael Stein
Diego Chara is the master of committing hard fouls, while never getting sent off. He has a TON of career yellow cards, but not a single red card. He’s a great old-school enforcer type player, despite not being a big guy....

I’m guessing we’ll see Sporting KC play very conservative in this first leg, like they did in Salt Lake. Portland will be aggressive and direct....

re: MLS Playoffs - Michael Stein
Great performance by Atlanta. Smart adjustments. I really thought this would be the year the Red Bulls finally won MLS Cup after years of postseason failures. Atlanta are just two games away, now. Winning MLS Cup could really put the Red Bulls on the map in that market, instead of being an af...

re: US U20 vs Mini Mexic*nts - CONCACAF final - 6PM - Michael Stein
A lot of rumors have him heading back to Milan. I can’t blame him for jumping ship after the Galaxy wasted a very productive season from him, and are generally a poorly run organization. It’s not 100% done yet that he’s leaving, but seems more likely than not at this point. ...

re: US U20 vs Mini Mexic*nts - CONCACAF final - 6PM - Michael Stein
Great win. We were by far the best team at this tournament. Tab Ramos deserves a lot of credit. It’ll be interesting to see if he is offered an assistant’s job for the senior team. I’m not sure he would even accept that. Alex Mendez’s performance reminded me a lot of Pulisic’s performance at the ...

re: MLS Playoffs - Michael Stein
Alright, so the conference finals are all set now. Atlanta vs. New York in a great Eastern final, and Portland vs. Kansas City in the West. The East is guaranteed to send a team that hasn’t won before. Games begin in two weeks, due to the international break....

The Red Bulls often struggle with attendance, but Red Bull Arena looks packed tonight. Great to see. Attendance is all they are missing to be a model MLS organization. Other than marketing, they are A+ in all other aspects....
