I sure hope so!

I decided to compile a list of how expansion teams did in their first season. The league started with 10 teams and have had 11 expansion teams since (Miami only played like 3 season before folding and Tampa Bay, one of the inaugural teams, also folded the same year Miami did)

Chicago 60
Miami 35
Chivas 18
RSL 20
Houston 46
San Jose 33
TFC 25
Seattle 47
Philadelphia 31
Vancouver 28
Montreal 42

That would place us as having the 4th best season ever, points wise at least, for an expansion team..and it could've been so much better lol


All in all, I'm quite happy with how the team played in it's first season. A big thank you to Joey Saputo and co, for everything. He showed he was not scared of spending if it was for the better of the team. He listened to the fans when he decided to drop the ticket prices. What a great owner!

Can't wait for next season

They're saying Adu isn't happy with Philly and vice versa. Would you trade Arnaud (290k) for Adu (520k)?

Yes. Would they? Doubt it.

Marsch said he liked Adu @ the expansion draft, but also mentionned he was Injury Prone. But he did play almost a full season this year, so who knows.

He looks like David Alaba from Bayern Munich though

Alaba is always on the Transfer List + rumours on FIFA so they have that in common

I don't know if I would do it. I don't think he's a good starter... would another change of scenery do it? I don't know.

In other news, really good read on the MLS and TFC

Adu is a good starter in the MLS, he's just overpaid.

Should i get FM13 guys?

I played 4 years of sims in FIFA 13 career mode, simed all my game (played on world class). I find it boring and easy, I play whit liverpool and now I got 4 player whit 90+ and all my starter are 84+. I got a boatload of talented player coming from the academy ... i just find it pretty boring since its really easy.

How is FM13?

FM13 is a lot more realistic of you like to play manager mode.

Interesting read on one of the Cuban defectors from a few weeks ago. Says he has friends on the Impact ... probably Sabrango. Doubt he is good enough to crack the first team on the Impact for next year but maybe he gets a trial with the club?

I thought it was pretty stupid when I first heard the news of cubans defecting from the national team to stay here, but it gives you a totally different perspective when you just know that he was making 10$ a month.

It makes sense...

The league has bent over backwards to give New York and LA every possible advantage..

Was at the game yesterday and I only have ONE thing to say: heartbreaking loss! We dominated, we were cleary the better team and we couldn't finish Worse, we got beat on a set piece

Had a great time though, got to go on the field after the game and it was a blast. I talked a little bit with Felipe, took a pic with Evelyne Audet and ORDERED De Santis to get us Kaka (he laughed his ass off and gave me the thumb up).

Great experience, can't wait to know where my season tickets will be!

Was playing FM13 against toronto in the canadian championship. Lost the 1st game at home 1-2 then in the 2nd leg I had to win 2-0 to qualify to the NACL. I was up 1-0 until the 90th minute I got a penalty and guess what my player missed it!!

After all, Nesta and Kaka are good friends from their days at Milan + Seem to have a real good relation even after Kaka's departure to RM



Would be incredible for MTL.. As Joey Saputo said, its good to invest in players that will help our team & Youth develop. Imagine Kaka, Felipe & Bernier as a midfield trio. Can't see Di Vaio complaining about passes anymore Hes on 9 Million Euros/year right now

Won't happen, but man, would it of have been great

I know it won't happen, but I told Nick this: "I heard Madrid are looking to sell Kaka, might want to look into it" and he laughed his ass off haha.

He was maybe laughing at that dim-witted loser who was telling him how to do his job, but meh

Maybe he was laughing cause he thought that you knew what was on his agenda

Great Article with Hassoun Camara in the France Media.

Some interesting stuff in there

En gros, tu n’es pas parti pour mieux revenir ?
Non, pas du tout, ce n’était pas dans cette optique-là. Je pense que j’aurai l’occasion de revenir, puisque j’ai eu quelques contacts cette année. Mais je me sens vraiment bien en MLS aujourd’hui, et je ne vois vraiment pas la raison qui pourrait me pousser à rentrer en France.

D’après ce que j’ai compris, on ne retrouvera pas Hassoun Camara la saison prochaine en Europe. Néanmoins, est-ce qu’il y a une offre que tu ne pourrais pas refuser ?
Ah… (il hésite). Tout le monde rêve du PSG, c’est sûr. Mais bon, on va arrêter de rêver, le club est passé dans une autre galaxie aujourd’hui. Tu sais qu’avant de signer à Marseille, je devais signer au PSG… Et j’ai choisi l’OM. Sinon, pour être franc, le seul pays qui me ferait revenir en Europe, c’est l’Angleterre. J’ai eu quelques touches il y a quelques mois… On verra, on verra d’ici là. Je me sens très très bien ici, si j’ai la perspective de pouvoir rester et que les dirigeants continuent à me faire confiance, je ne vois pas de raison d’aller voir ailleurs.

Loved that interview! He doesn't like Poutine or the snow (surprise)! Although it's not healthy for a pro athlete anyway.
