MLS to return for July tournament?

12 May 2020 - 08:08 PM

MLS is tentatively planning to take all its 26 teams to central Florida for a summer tournament, according to a report from the Washington Post. The competition would not be part of the suspended regular season, and would instead be a standalone event that would see each team play a minimum of five games without fans in attendance.

The league is reportedly targeting June 1 as the date for team arrivals to Orlando, and matches would begin to take place on July 1. The games would be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, which is located on a piece of the enormous 220 acres that Walt Disney World owns in Orlando.

The league has also braced for not playing any games until at least September.

(Europe is a minor footnote, not even quoted, but somehow made the headline.)


Metro Mount Rushmore

27 March 2020 - 05:17 PM

MLSsoccer.com started doing a series of making a Mount Rushmore for every team, "the most influential players for every club". Hopefully, Doyle can provide some feedback, or we'll end up with some nonsense. Anyway, my four:

 

1. Thierry Henry

2. BWP

3. Mike Petke (as player and coach)

4. Clint Mathis

 

Toughest omissions: Angel, Robles

 

Maybe Robles over Mathis... Ugh. Tough call. Yeah, kinda has to be. All-time leader in games and all GK categories + 3 shields. Sorry, Cletus.

 

1. Titi

2. BWP

3. Petke

4. Robles

First Goal of the Year

18 February 2020 - 11:14 PM

24 seasons, 24 first goal scorers. (Own goals don't count; if they did, it would still be 24/24.)

Your only repeat candidates are Royer (quite likely) and Mines (not so much).
