    They did not win a single game so far ? Well I know exactly how this feels, HSV only got 2 points out of 10 games in the first half of the season :rolleyes:;)
    But Schweini and Chicago Fire won their game :tup:
    Btw - read that the MLS is an Option for Ibrahimovic next season.

    Evidence of the impact a player with the quality and leadership of Bastian Schweinsteiger provides: Chicago currently sit at 2nd, after finishing in last place last season.

    He has provided that... but he's not alone.

    Chicago also brought in this year:
    Joao Meira - 6th highest scoring defender right now.
    Jorge Bava - GK
    Dax McCarty - 7th highest scoring MF right now.
    Nemanja Nikolic - 2nd highest scoring forward right now.
    Juninho - Playmaking MF.

    Fairly amazing they've been able to put it all together so soon.

    Did anyone watch the Seattle v NY match yesterday? It was raining so hard the players looked like they were playing in a lake!

    No kidding. They would try to pass the ball and it would just die in the water. That was a tough match to play, but it was kind of fun to watch. In other news the ref threw a bogus immediate red during the Union game to give Red Bull the advantage. :mad:

    If any league wants to know how NOT to do VAR, they can just look at the MLS...

    We've just sold one of our midfield players to Colorado Rapids, a lad named Jack Price. Watch this kid, technically he's pretty damn good, quite suprised we sold him to be honest. He plays as a holding central midfielder - similar to Pirlo.

    I think I just heard there are 72,000 in attendance at ATL vs DC United, playing in Atlanta's new stadium. Quite a crowd.

    Zlatans way to say "Hello MLS", first goal is another stunner by him. :eek:
    However, must have been an entertaining game.

    Gosh, that's exactly what I wanted to see, Zlatan ripping off his shirt in LA. Couldn't think of anything better. Fine, the first goal was really great, but I credit the goal more to the goalie who was playing 35 meters off his line for the goal to happen. Crap, bring Ronaldo and Pepe to LA too. Perhaps when one of them scores a goal, the whole team will rip their shirt off, the whole stadium will rip their shirt off too, the whole city will rip their shirt off in bars too. What a trend. I'll stick to cold weather cities where its too cold to rip the shirt off so we dont have these stupid moments.

    Yeah, that's ugly. :sick: But, understanding how things work in the U.S. these days, stuff like that will increase viewership and interest in the sport, even though it's for the wrong reasons. So on one hand I despise it, but on the other it will probably benefit the MLS.:rolleyes:

    We all know they live in a kind of alternative reality there, quite clearly a very eccentric fellow as well as a good player although maybe somewhat past it now.....agreed Ronaldo, Bale, and any one of a thousand other prettyboy poser types will find LA to be just for them when old age takes them out to pasture.
