    Sporting News reporting that MLS has helped CONCACAF countries compete and improve. Costa Rica seems like a legit power.

    The article was even more poignant after US elimination tonight, Sounder player scoring one of the two goals keeping us out. Disgraceful result for US.

    Although I'd disagree with the last paragraph. It isn't helping US talent.

    I guess you're right as displayed tonight. Watched the game with my son to get him hyped for the World Cup...fortunately like many US fans he is far more interested in Real Madrid.

    Columbus to Austin? If true or of it pans out could or will negatively impact San Antonio's MLS bid.

    I always thought that Columbus was a strange place to have a team. Would be a shame if they moved though, imagine spending the last 10/15 seasons watching them for the team to just go somewhere else.

    Yeah, Columbus seemed like a novelty - Green Bay. Unfortunately demand seems so high for a franchise that Crew owner can leverage (or black mail) public financing. I presume that the 12 cities looking for expansion teams are precluded from negotiations with exisiting franchises otherwise there would be a bidding war for Crew.

    Phoenix has stared their media campaign to push for a franchise;

    I figure Phx will get a franchise and Hibs will visit during the 2022 World Cup winter break

    Out of 12 cities bidding for four new MLS franchises Nashville has been chosen as the first. Maybe the success of Atlanta in their first MLS season helped the choice for another Southeast team.

    Sacramento gets snubbed. I think the MLS wants to see who else can get their act together before risking Sacramento. Possibly St Louis or San Diego.

    Hopefully this is good news for Phoenix, they need western teams, and are waiting to see who else emerges before making any commitments. With Austin maybe canceling out San Antonio and Sac being snubbed, opening there for Phoenix Rising FC.

    I see Miami has officially been named as a new franchise today.

    I talked to an Uber driver a few days ago in Miami. He said Beckham had bought a load of land for building the new stadium.

    Doubt Beckham did - he's too savvy for that, won't be his money!

    Still 3 more to go, Miami deal done years ago. Still looks like Cincy will be next and Sacramento will be shafted. Detroit won't build a football specific stadium so who knows for the final two....Phoenix still a possibilty!!

    The land around stadiums usually becomes more valuable as surrounding amenities compete for rents. He might have the city build the stadium but I bet he has bought surrounding tracts to develop into hotels, condos and retail.

    Think that was the deal in Nashville, developers got the land around the stadium as part of the deal, with further development plans in place.

    Might be worth buying a few lots around the proposed site in Phoenix.

    Looks like the first derby game today might be fun. I have season tickets for both LAFC and LA Galaxy so will wear a Hibs jersey to the game.

    Amazing game you got to see.
    (Ibrahim was offside on second I think, but who cares)
    Stadium energy looked great on TV.

    I thought he was offside in the replay too.

    Unreal contest and a great display by LAFC for a lot of it.

    Ibrahimovic's first goal was amazing to watch and I had to celebrate it.

    Great derby and good signs for football in LA. Although a couple of thugs tried to start a fight at the end, most of it was good enthusiastic support.

    I'm buying my LAFC shirt this week. Love the design. Still wearing Hibs jersey at Derby games!

    Season Tickets to both, that's quite a bit football. I am curious to see LAFC, but Galaxy is more accessible (in-laws in OC). Hope to go once this year.

    And if anyone noticed Phoenix Rising FC ran an ad right at the start of halftime; forget Detroit n Sacramento- Phoenix is rising.
