Paponi and DiVaio seem to have instant chemistry.

MLS scheduling is a joke. How can you have in the same league a team with 6 GP and another with 10 GP?

1. Odd number of teams
2. CONCACAF Champions League
3. U.S. Open Cup/Canada Cup later in the year

MLS gave teams in the CONCACAF Champions League a week break between their CL games in the hope it would help them make the finals

Portland/SKC has been very entertaining so far. 2-2 at the half.

Grant Wahl's segment on Goals on Sunday:

http://www.bing.com/videos?mkt=en-us...harepermalink:

Discusses Man City as the favorite for NY2, Leiweke looking to bring 'a player like Beckham or Keane to Toronto', and Herculez Gomez possibly returning to MLS (Seattle and TFC mentioned as possible suitors).

Update on 'New York City FC':

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/29/sp...ork.html?_r=1&

Quote:
Sheik Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family, whose private investment group owns Manchester City in England’s Premier League, has entered final negotiations to purchase a franchise of Major League Soccer to be situated in Queens, according to two people with knowledge of the negotiations.

The prospective owners are willing to pay a $100 million expansion fee for the league’s 20th team, which could be called New York City F.C. and begin play in 2016, the two people said. That would more than double the expansion fee of $40 million paid by the Montreal team that entered M.L.S. in 2012.

After months of public hearings, applications and discussions, a deal for a privately financed $340 million stadium in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, which would hold 25,000 spectators and could be expanded to 35,000, could be completed in several weeks, according to several people with knowledge of the deal.

Chicago is full of role players and no star talent. Painful to watch.

MacDonald is so infuriating to watch. No reason that guy shouldn't be a 12-18 goal scorer in MLS.

If he's still like this come the summer window, time for a new DP striker?

More rumors of Park to MLS.

http://www.mlssoccer.com/news/articl...get-toronto-fc

List Vancouver and Toronto as the teams most interested, with the team losing out looking to sign Jermaine Pennant.

Perhaps Lampard won't be coming to LA after all.

Quote:
There has been cautious interest from Sir Alex Ferguson in the player, 35 in June when he is due to become a free agent. Lampard was also close to a deal with Los Angeles Galaxy, whose Major League Soccer season began last month, but that has fallen through.

Key to any potential deal between LA Galaxy and Lampard was Tim Lieweke, formerly president and chief executive of AEG, the owners of the franchise. When he left the LA Galaxy in March the chances of Lampard moving there reduced significantly.
http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/f...k-8598278.html

If it did indeed fall through, be interesting to see who they go for now. Have to think Kaka's all NY.

What's going on in Portland right now is incredible. Over 3,000 people at Jeld-Wen Field to watch the Timbers play a team of an 8 year old who has been diagnosed with cancer.
