    Awesome build up by Seattle and a nice touch from Dempsey to Martins and then the finish.

    Rumors that Sebastian Lleget (Galaxy), Will Packwood (New England) and Jonathan Spector (Galaxy) are being heavily courted and heavily interested in joining MLS.

    Packwood and Lleget seem most likely to move some speculation that deals have already been reached with the two players.

    Crew announced their international friendly. 5/27 vs Valencia. Last year we had Crystal Palace so bigger than I expected

    Amazing that Mastroeni still has a job, but like Kroenke gives a shit about the Rapids.

    Steven Goff ‏@SoccerInsider
    Colorado's late equalizer salvages home point, 1-1 with San Jose. Rapids have won 1 of past 24 #MLS regular season matches.

    You guys hired one of Valencia's youth coaches last year to run your academy, so probably part of the agreement for Valencia letting him come here.

    You can not fire a man with such lovely facial hair. There is some obscure MLS rule that covers that kind of thing.

    My mom's work is doing a function at the match tonight so will be on the field behind the goal with free food instead of in the Nordecke. Not sure how I feel about that, it'll be pretty good atmosphere for Seattle I'd expect. Lots of one sided hate in this one

    Nice weather so hopefully a nice crowd.

    Expansion team or not I'm pretty surprised a lineup with David Villa and Mix is this bad. Going a man up has barely helped NYCFC at all

    I've been telling you guys all along I was rich and good looking, right?

    No, not me. My friend sent me this pic, and it's not even in his house, so I have no idea who that is.

    "Dempsey has now had a goal or assist in 10 straight games, dating back to last year. If he gets a goal or assist in his next game, he'll tie the MLS record (currently shared by three players). It's already the longest streak in MLS since 1998. During his streak, he's picked up eight goals and six assists. Perhaps even more impressively, Dempsey has actually registered a point in 18 of his past 19 regular-season appearances, a period in which he's scored 13 goals and picked up 11 assists."

    Supposed to be 22-25k. Would be cool if we could get a 50k+ stadium but not sure the finances would work out.

    Won't open until 2018, so likely means Minnesota will join in 2017

    To add on to it, I think this was probably the best location they could find that would actually be in LA outside of building it on the LA Live/Staples Center/Convention Center site. Sports Arena sucked ass and was just waiting to be demolished. IIRC it's relatively close to some light rail lines which is nice and right off the 110.

    Only downside is that the surrounding area south is terrible. Their is really nothing else around the area as far as bars and restaurants as most of that stuff is a lot closer to SC. Hopefully it will be a catalyst and help turn around the area.
