Watching LA vs. Galaxy and the play looks much better than few years ago.  Def more action packed and entertaining.

Dude.. if you ever get the chance to make it to an Orlando game, you'll be amazed at the atmosphere. It's easily one of the most exciting and "all-in" sporting venues I've ever been to in my life, topping any football game I've ever seen in person. It's totally exciting for the entire 2 hours, and the place is nuts for hours before and after the game, and a TON of fun to go to.

 

Glad to see the quality of MLS is starting to catch up to the excitement of it.

It was... Kreis is running the team into the ground and the average fans are starting to elect to spend money elsewhere. Now the supporter section is the best in Major League Soccer in my opinion (biased as an OCSC fan) but outside of the supporter section the stadium has been quite empty in recent weeks. Now we got a fantastic win against the Timbers yesterday but there were A LOT of empty seats.

I think the OCSF fans are some of the best in the MLS but just like any other scenario, if the team isn't winning, the average fan isn't coming.

Kreis is basically the new Preki...an all-star MLS player who had initial success as a coach in lucky circumstances and thus will get six more coaching gigs in the league and stink the joint up each time. (Complete assh*le in real life as well.)

The league has gotten significantly better even just over the last few years.

And if you look at the progress since the beginning, Jesus Christ. I remember watching guys like Darren Sawatzky play back in '96...there were a lot of guys who genuinely seemed like they had not seen a soccer ball before. I remember watching one game where a guy on the MetroStars took a corner and put it over the opposing sideline - twice. There were a lot of players back then that seriously would not cut it at a D-I program today. The growth has been a beautiful thing.

Out of curiosity, I just googled Darren Sawatzky* to see where he is now, and he is somehow the national team coach of Guam. Geez. I wonder if Thomas Rongen gave him a reference.

 

 

* No idea why I singled this guy out. There were dozens of players just as bad or worse, he just popped into my head.

    • as usual you live in your imaginary world avoid of reality 
    • Quote The U.S. Department of Agriculture proposed new rules Tuesday to limit access to food stamps for households with savings and other assets, a measure that officials said would cut benefits to about 3 million people. In a telephone call with reporters, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Acting Deputy Under Secretary Brandon Lipps said the proposed new rules for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) were aimed at ending automatic eligibility for those who were already receiving federal and state assistance. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/07/23/usda-proposes-snap-change-that-would-push-million-americans-off-food-stamps/?utm_term=.93c1ac2af98f   you might want to read the rest of the article... here is a couple more excerpts  USDA officials told the call the proposal was aimed at closing a loophole that was famously exploited by a wealthy Minnesota man, Rob Undersander, who claims he received food stamps for 19 months despite owning significant assets such as property and bank accounts. The article didnt say how much assets the Minnesota man had     No one knows what the Qualification Levels will be so how does anyone know 3 million people will be cut off ? The USDA officials had no specifics on the financial cutoff for their proposal.
