I just don't like GDS as a striker. He offers a lot more. We need a real forward bad.

I wonder if Minnesota is going to be the worst team in MLS history this season.

Not feeling good about this one. Blanco, Valeri, Adi, and Nagbe are going to have a field day with our fullbacks

When you bring up a NASL team and decide you don't need to invest at all...well you get these results.

This is what happens when you don't invest in depth...and trade a starting caliber defender that can slot in anywhere despite the guy above him at his best position having serious career concerns and no other RBs...and your one striker with any amount of experience gets hurt...and you go cheap on the coach...and...this is going to be a disaster of a season in LA.

I get wanting to see what you have with your academy and USL team that you spent so much money on, especially after you wasted all of that money on Gerrard to do friggin' nothing (which shouldn't have surprised anyone)...but that doesn't mean you purge your roster of any and all depth while not replacing high-level out-going players.

Way to give LAFC a running start, morons.

Got it, thanks.

I totally forgot Lew Wolff owned the Quakes. He's sinking 2 bay area teams right now.

The new stadium is absolutely incredible. It's pretty much the sole reason I've become an Earthquakes fan (my first game there was the match against Man United in the summer of '15). My hope is that the new stadium would help bring in larger sums of revenue, but if Wolff remains the owner I doubt the amount of money the team generates will show itself on the pitch anytime soon.

With all that said though it was great to see the Quakes come back from a 2-0 deficit and beat Vancouver on Saturday. Playing up a man for 65 minutes always helps.

I have a feeling that Tweet will be the best thing the Galaxy do this season.


Seriously though, you never like seeing someone get hurt...but when they hurt themselves diving you can't help but smirk a little.

Sounds like, for some reason, the Fire are still going after Schweinsteiger and that a deal could be somewhat close.

Unless they're moving to a 4-3-3, I don't get it.

I ordered an Albert Rusnak jersey last night. That's my last name.

Was following his progress with City a few years ago and then forgot about him, had no idea he signed with RSL until I watched the Fire highlights.

Just to be honest here, if the Galaxy and LAFC were to be founded in the same year, I'd definitely choose LAFC. Being based in the city would've been a huge advantage. But, I would never jump ship. I will always be a Galaxy fan.

I know someday I will hate LAFC. But I will never use these against their fans:

- Bullying an infant franchise and reminding them that the Galaxy have 5 championships while they have none.

- "There's only one LA team and that's the Galaxy! Get out of LA!"

- "You don't have any fans!"

- When they become a good team, fans are automatically labeled as bandwagoners.

I just can't stoop down to the Laker fan level. And I will not blame LAFC fans for calling us Carson FC or whatever **** they'll say about us being based in Carson.

Hard to say, 2 great wins have come against probable bottom 5 teams. Also will be interesting what happens when teams start to play the counter vs them.

Didn't watch, but the Fire were down a man inside 15 minutes, no? Hard to make much of the blowout.

Atlanta was up 1-0 at that point, already playing on the front foot. To be honest, the red was questionable. But it was a smart run and pass that put the Fire in a bad spot there. The rest was Chicago sitting back and trying to absorb pressure until they were finally broken down.

Still, teams can attack down a man but that didn't happen here. When a center back has almost as many (or more) passes than the other team combined, that team was playing too passive regardless of manpower.

It's fair to say Atlanta haven't proven themselves yet; I mean, it's only been 3 games. Their next four are on the road so that will give much better indication if they're for real or not. Safe to say they'll be entertaining even if they don't get results. Don't know if it was a reporter or Martino himself who said it, but someone did say this team was built to win 4-3; not 1-0.

Schweni to the Fire. Deal is reportedly for 1 season (w/options) at around $4.5M a season.

Well, tbf, the only players who have showed anything have been their NASL guys (Ramirez, Davis). That Norwegian defender they signed is ****ing abysmal. I think he's conceded a PK in like every game thus far.
