Am currently watching the Chicago Fire vs. DC United in the first round of the playoffs. Does anyone else on ILX follow the MLS?

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 01:54 (twelve years ago) link

PS Fire 1, United 0 at the half.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 01:54 (twelve years ago) link

We've all totally lost interest because our glorious hero David Beckham is no longer involved. Sorry.

Just got offed, Friday, 26 October 2007 01:55 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, that's right, my team kicked his broke ass out on Sunday.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 01:56 (twelve years ago) link

Any excuse to watch this again.

Just got offed, Friday, 26 October 2007 02:09 (twelve years ago) link

is blanco playing? soccernet isn't working for me right now

gbx, Friday, 26 October 2007 02:27 (twelve years ago) link

Golaso de De Rosario

Blanco started, but he hasn't had much of a game thus far.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 02:40 (twelve years ago) link

i'm marginally interested. when my town, seattle, gets a team in '09 i'm sure i'll be way more into it

jergïns, Friday, 26 October 2007 03:02 (twelve years ago) link

Some friends of mine saw (the US) Chivas this last weekend. Said it was straight bollocks.

admrl, Friday, 26 October 2007 04:31 (twelve years ago) link

Welcome, shit-talking British people.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 04:40 (twelve years ago) link

The game ended 1-0. DC put in their goal-scorers in the second half but they didn't do much of anything either. Leg 2 is in a week in DC.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:39 (twelve years ago) link

Also, it occured to me that Brits ought to know "bollocks" football when they see it, considering their national team.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:39 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, the British National Football Team has a long and varied history.

Dom Passantino, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:48 (twelve years ago) link

"Brits" = the English. No Scots would call themselves "Brits".

everything, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:51 (twelve years ago) link

Sorry, you're right.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:52 (twelve years ago) link

First round:

Chivas over KC
Revs over NY
Houston over Dallas
Fire over DC

After that, I don't know.

dan m, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:53 (twelve years ago) link

Any excuse to watch this again.

Great free kick, not sure about this "upper 90" term instead of the traditional "postage stamp" or even "top corner".

Is that Tim Lovejoy MLS show still on?

onimo, Friday, 26 October 2007 20:56 (twelve years ago) link

Conference finals are set:

✧✧✧@✧.✧.
K.C.@Houston

NE looked assy in their 1-0 win over New York. Aside from the fact that the Fire have to play in their huge, empty stadium, on turf, I think they have a great shot of breaking the playoff curse vs. the Revs. Houston should roll over KC.

So the season starts tomorrow, does anyone care?

dan m, Friday, 28 March 2008 18:29 (twelve years ago) link

Yes, I'm going to New Jersey to watch like 7 hours of MLS tomorrow, since our first game isn't until Apr 5.

lol: Riquelme to MLS?

http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-spw-soccer9apr09,1,6870991.story

dan m, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 15:23 (twelve years ago) link

Similarly, if Riquelme plays for Argentina in its June 8 friendly against the U.S. at Giants Stadium, all it will take for him to reject any move is one look at the dreadful, patched-up, threadbare, NFL-logoed carpet that passes for a soccer field at the Meadowlands.

ahahahahaha

Seattle Alliance, Seattle Republic and Seattle FC beaten out by popular opinion. New Team:

mizzell, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 16:53 (twelve years ago) link

meet the new team
same as the old team

dan m, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 16:55 (twelve years ago) link

with an FC!

mizzell, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 16:56 (twelve years ago) link

Dan kind of sold me on Emerald City FC, I don't think it got a fair chance...but good for them, anyway. Nice work chucking the proverbial monkey wrench in the league's plans.

Laurel, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:03 (twelve years ago) link

Although I did read a decent rejoinder from a Seattle fan somewhere who said they were happy that E.C.F.C. didn't get picked b/c they'd be spared all the teasing and the stupid jokes (especially when KC came to town).

dan m, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:44 (twelve years ago) link

even though i voted for just seattle fc, i'm happy with the name.

jergïns, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:49 (twelve years ago) link

pretty uncringeworthy as far as u.s. professional soccer team names go, historically speaking, anyhow

dell, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:52 (twelve years ago) link

Didn't Chicago almost get called something really lame?

Laurel, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:54 (twelve years ago) link

Oh god, I'm not sure since I haven't followed the team for that long, but I remember reading a reference somewhere online to calling the team the "Rhythm"? GAG

dan m, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:56 (twelve years ago) link

YES, that's what I was thinking of. Can you imagine? SO MANY JOEKS, I CANNOT DECIDE

Laurel, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:57 (twelve years ago) link

The K.C. Wiz has to be stupidest ever, even taking the NASL into account.

dan m, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 17:58 (twelve years ago) link

Dallas Burn & Tampa Bay Mutiny pretty close behind

mizzell, Wednesday, 9 April 2008 18:01 (twelve years ago) link

still, i don't sneeze at their rhythm method-inspired offsides trap

all football strategies should take cues from dodgy birth control methods

like the d.c. united 7-up douche corner kick formation

DC are douches, that is for sure.

i first read that as "micc10 brewed soda"

step away from computer, dell

but yeah, that's a fitting description

either that, or the failed irish-amer hip hop band that lost it to house of pain

ESPN talking heads going off on streamers being tossed at games:

dan m, Tuesday, 6 May 2008 20:10 (twelve years ago) link

i was watching that game on the telly. i thought the streamers fiasco was pretty funny. Actually it was a pretty decent game, although I'm perfectly aware that the "open" style of play was down to no defending on either side whatsoever.

Whoever the guy in that video was ranting is a total fuckwit.

My girlfriend and I were thinking about going to a Revolution match this season. Any suggestions on which? Neither of us follow the MLS closely. LA is out as its sold out.

LOL:

In a pair of sweeping changes brought about by a Major League Soccer season in meltdown, the Los Angeles Galaxy today removed Alexi Lalas as team president and general manager and Ruud Gullit as coach.

In its official statement on the changes, AEG, which owns the team, said that Gullit had resigned "for personal reasons" and that Lalas' contract was up at the end of the year and that the team decided to part company now rather than wait.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 11 August 2008 18:39 (eleven years ago) link

that's what you get for spending all your salary cap (plus some lol) on three players

dan m, Monday, 11 August 2008 18:41 (eleven years ago) link

I'm so happy, really. They deserved the boot.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 11 August 2008 18:42 (eleven years ago) link

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
LOVE YOU
WE LOVE YOU

AND WHERE YOU PLAY WE'LL FOLLOW

Congrats to NY for completely stuffing DC yesterday and making a lot of people very happy.

Laurel, Monday, 11 August 2008 18:42 (eleven years ago) link

Lalas is such a tool, really. I remember hearing him say, in all earnestness, that the Gals would be the first MLS "superclub".

dan m, Monday, 11 August 2008 18:44 (eleven years ago) link

I went to my first mls game of the season today, the latest i’ve left it in years. Weird one. ECS walked out at halftime because their iron front flag bearer got kcicked out. Quiet and sloppy second half, but a sounders win

alomar lines, Monday, 16 September 2019 04:09 (nine months ago) link

Nice, y'all are in 2nd, huh?

Got so close to perfect home attendance this year for OC. made the first fifteen games, had to miss last night and will be out of the country for the finale.

Missed a wild one too. I have a feeling next year is our year. Definitely a better squad than a year ago

maxi is correct

This is an incredible amount of money for a league that...

- Barely gets 200K viewers a game.

- Barely earns any amount of national media coverage.

- Still has players fly in economy.

- Actively claims it's not profitable. https://t.co/9kwRhUzMqW
