Watched Charlotte's last game and they are meh outside of their center forward Copetti who is a workhorse who can finish plays. Dude may actually give Nealis and Reyes something to worry about physically for the first time all season.

Their defense looks crap right now. Atlanta tore them wide open. They're having rough season start. Could be opportunity for our midfield and forwards to go at them hard.

Morning. Anyone here in ESC or VA and going to the game? What section will you be in? I'm going to go and of course prefer sit with fellow supporters. Not seeing tickets available through either SG website? Don't mind going through Ticketmaster but want to be in away fan section.


Thank you,

Pro-Rel is not the American way. Owners would never agree to it. Tepper dropped over $300M on Charlotte FC. What do you think his reaction would be if you tell him his club he paid over $300M for now has to play in a lower division? If it were me, I'd say drop dead. My club remains in the top flight. IMO, keep building MLS-USL partnership as major/minor league system. Improve youth soccer opportunities across the country. Do best we can so "pay to play" isn't the only way. Increase sponsorship and revenue of MLS, particularly the salary cap. Someone above commented about Klinsmann being right about US soccer structure. Up to now and maybe still, ultimate goal for young soccer player is to earn college scholarship. Klinsmann said we need change that goal to turning professional and playing in MLS or Europe. Show youth MLS is solid, good pay and they'll stick with it.

They should dedicate an entire practice to practicing shooting. Forget 7v7, just do fast breaks with guys shooting on the fly. See how it goes? Who puts it right in Coronel's hands, high or wide and who actually puts in the upper corners for a score? This is getting ridiculous. These men are supposed to be professionals. I'm tired of seeing shots right at the opposing GK.
