Lol there was more than 5k but yeah that's an April crowd for you. Even worse than usual really, and don't expect that to change much against the fire. It's a dead horse thing, just move my comments lol. Mets are on fire and tickets still are dirt cheap and readily available..it's an area thing
JM is flawed but he's a good coach and we're a fun team to watch every year. I think he had a bad game against Chicas but hopefully he learns from it. He didn't coach the USOC final loss bad after all and we were in that game. We've been very competitive under Jesse. Even last year we ended up tieing Toronto on aggregate after flying to Chicago and handing them a beating. Toronto basically walked to the MLS cup and soon to be CCL champions, I really do not have a ton to complain about with the guy.
There are things I'd rather see than Columbus get moved. Houston or Dallas getting relocated for example, as they never draw anyone at all. I'd rather see New England play in a SSS. I'd rather see Cincinatti get into MLS. I'd rather see a bunch of different things, but I really cannot say Columbus shouldn't be a candidate for relocation. The owner is selfish, I get that. But they consistently draw flies. We're pretty guilty of not drawing well though, but it does improve as the weather improves. We have the best academy and have put on a terrific product for years (and hopefully continue to do so), and have a world class venue that hosts many international games - with a huge conglomerate behind it all that has a world wide soccer reach. We will not be going anywhere.
Now, if I'm wrong or you disagree - that is fine. I do not root for Columbus to move, but can understand why they are a candidate to do so. I do not think Texas needs another team, as the existing two draw nothing at all (I understand location is an issue for these teams, the Mexican audience didn't flock as much as hoped perhaps, etc - I do not want to go into their problems as we have our own we cannot figure out). Austin is a tech bubble, so I suppose there are hopes to capitalize on that.
