Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Vancouver trades Giles Barnes to Orlando for Brek Shea

would be kool if that means that Brek is the starting LB now

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Wowow. You don't usually see big moves in MLS that come out of nowhere, and definitely not 5 days before the season kicks off.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

it's especially weird considering the Reyna injury, given that Barnes was one of the more natural replacements at the 10, and backing up Montero at the 9. they're very light in both those positions, but have loads of wingers. will either be moving people around all year, or they aren't done dealing.

or maybe they try Shea in those spots. think he played further forward earlier in his career with Dallas.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

yeah well i'm hoping for the best, still have fond memories of watching the #2 goal live





Barnes was also not good, and this at least saves them ~$150k TAM

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Any MLS season sweeps or anything on here? Would be fun to do something with a small sweat to keep me interested

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Might be doing a MLS fantasy league this year. I'm sure I'll lose interest by Week 2. But I can have some fun with forwards and most MF, but who are some of the better defensive players and teams?

Also, anywhere that lists every teams penalty takers?

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Does anyone post top goalscorer betting odds? I'd imagine Matteo Mancosu has super long odds, but I give him a reasonable shot at 20+ if he stays healthy the whole season.

looking over the last 3 seasons, i'd say:

NYRB - have been consistently solid
Dallas - ditto, just an all-around good team
Colorado - were elite last year under Mastroeni
LAG - always strong, could be better this year without Gerrard loafing around
KC - always solid
San Jose - surprisingly stout? possibly a stylistic thing bc they can't score
Seattle - always solid, anchored by Alonso & Marshall
Vancouver - were great in '14 & '15, but sucked last year for some reason
DCU - consistently a solid 2nd tier team

TFC were good last year, but not sure i totally buy it


players? i dunno, pick the CBs & DMs from some of those teams i guess

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Missed the first 50 minutes tonight, but Red Bulls looked pretty bad. Davies and Montero on the scoresheet tonight, might be saying that a lot this year.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

ya game could have very easily been like 4-2. hoping that the team can stay relatively healthy and we get some games with the Montero/Manneh/Bolanos/Shea/Davies attacking group intact. should be fun.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

Semis should be fun Dallas v. Pachuca and Vancouver v. Tigres, hopefully MLS can get a team through to the Finals.

Tigres front 3 is scary, Gignac, Damm, and Vargas. Is cruizn even still around? If so, I'm sure he'll be around soon to tell us how little chance MLS has.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

lots of excitement in Atlanta. It will be interesting to see how it goes this season in regard to attendance, and interest in the team/MLS vs the sport overall.

Colorado Rapids are very good at team defense; Axel Sjoberg is the best middle back in the league IMO.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

anyone getting Direct Kick this year?

I used to pony up for it back in the day but haven't for a few years.

Does anyone know if footytube puts up these global highlights shows / preview shows weekly?

http://www.footytube.com/video/who-w...=lchan_vidgrid


MLS has needed the equivalent weekly highlights show that every Euro league has badly .... 1 hour a week and you can keep up with every team.

Re: MLS Season Thread 2017

got MLS live going. Does anyone know if blackouts are based on your IP address or based on your billing address?

Would be sweet if I could completely cut my cable during the summer .... all TFC games are on TV here so they'd be blacked out ..... if based on IP I can improvise
