Line-ups and shit to follow.
>making up stories on a taiwanese cartoon image board
The team is sponsored by Xbox.
It's Xbox green.
It's in an NFL stadium with 3 times the capacity of most MLS stadiums. The fact they filled half of it is a big accomplishment.
>i am a shittle fan
>why not forest green, white and blue?
>Why can't everyone with turf just install the type Portland has?
the funny thing is that it actually is the same FieldTurf. It's just the Portland has a million dollar E-layer underneath that provides more cushion. Also Portland changes it out every 2 years.
Why? Seems they have great attendaces to their games.
>still franchise leagues are shit.
Just wanted to support a CONCACAF team.
fucking bullshit it is. it isn't as good as grass, but it's a thousand times better than this three year old shit they play on in Seattle. they fuck it up with motocross races FFS.
Why not support a CONCACAF team currently in the semis of the Champions League?
I like it. It doesn't look good on anyone, for sure, but it provides much-needed variation to the league. Crew have really ugly shirts too, and Orlando's are pretty unattractive, but all of the above are distinctive and not just generic red-blue crap.
Who has the best kits this year? My vote is either for SKC or Crew
Just because an NFL has the money to maintain a natural field doesn't mean they want to. Especially if they can save that money to pocket for later or spend it on other things like advertising or renovating other areas of the arena.
i thought Seattle was one of the better clubs in the MLS. why don't they have a proper soccer stadium and field? you'd think with the climate up there, it'd be no issue.. i fuckin' hate this plastic turf shit but i also realize how incredibly expensive it is to maintain.
is there a new stadium in the works for seattle?
the seahawks want a harder turf field because it makes for a faster track. it has nothing to do with cost. the seahawks/sounders could easily afford to maintain grass their with grow lights. Also they host other events besides football/soccer.
Holy shit. Some guy in the crowd just tipped one of these hats. Tell me I wasn't the only one to see that.
There's a lack of space to build a stadium in Seattle, and they don't want it outside of the city. I think they also want to keep attendance at 40k+ which would be a pretty expensive stadium to build. It's just not urgent enough of an issue, despite what the turf critics think.
>you will never see a MLS match at Memorial Stadium
So my understanding is once a keeper puts the ball on the ground, he can't pick it back up.
So why are keepers allowed to bounce the ball (for no reason) like that? It technically hits the ground.
>yfw he says 'I don't think this semen slurping sport is for me'
>we will never see Sounders play a 4-3-3 with Dempsey at LW, Oba at CF and Fredy Montero at RW
I need to do this in FIFA.
>mfw they miss out on the playoffs again and give away another DP
>the leagues face when Osvaldo Alonso hasn't even played today
>my face when they sign samir nasri in the summer
>the leagues face when Sounders still don't win the Cup
Not unless every game is on turf. Seattle are probably the best team in MLS but they could not match Burnley for fitness, organization or physicality. They're passing through Revs because Revs defense is bad
That too, but not by much. There's absolutely no way any MLS team has better defensive organization than any team in the prem. Fitness/strength you could maybe argue but I still doubt it.
On average European players start playing and play longer than the average American player and also the premier League is the fastest paced most physical league in the world so yes burnley would be far more the physical side
Seattle's attacking abilities are fine against bad MLS defenses, not for a team in arguably the best league in the world.
I'm amazed people are actually taking this idea seriously. This is "could Alabama beat the Raiders" argument tier stupid.
I don't know man. I've been watching this semen slurping sport for a long time and I think Seattle could give Burnley a run for their money. This is motherfucking Burnley F.C. we are talking about, not Real Madrid. I think even the best MLS teams would absolutely be relegated in the Prem tho, don't get me wrong.
Seattle has a good attack, amazing for MLS standards. They will score a lot. But their defense is as bad as the other teams. Might keep them safe against equally bad opposition with worse attacks, but against a half decent team... doubt it.
>Every now and then Jay Heaps wakes up and texts Robert Kraft “Why don’t you love me like you love Tom Brady?”
>Robert Kraft, getting up from his mattress made of macaroni noodles cooked in the tears of Patriots fans after their recent Super Bowl failure takes a long look at his phone before texting back: “Who is this, and why do you have my number?”
>Jay Heaps punches the wall in frustration. Through the tears caused by his frustration, he furiously texts back: “It’s Jay! Jay Heaps! You own the New England Revolution! A soccer team! You know, Taylor Twellman, the best player to ever play for this team? That New England Revolution!” and he slams his phone down on the IKEA brand coffee table he bought with his meagerly 50k salary. He gets up and slams his head against the wall, sobbing.
>After a few minutes, his phone vibrates. Jay looks at it with a deathly glare, questioning whether or not he should pick it up. After a minute of deliberating it with himself, he picks up the phone and reads the following message: “I have a soccer team?”
>He screams in frustration, throwing his phone against the wall, waking the neighbors in the surrounding apartments. “I FUCKING HATE YOU, ROBERT KRAFT! I FUCKING HATE YOU” he yells as he succumbs to the impending emotional breakdown, punching his couch through his tears.
You're picking their position on the EPL to justify them being not as good. Because they aren't, for the EPL, but they were good enough for the championship, which would give enough trouble for MLS teams. You might say "burnley and QPR sucks" but they have Ings and Austin, two skilled strikers that would absolutely tear apart MLels terrible defences.
Yes, but you are just hyping up two solid players from relatively mediocre clubs. Dempsey and Martins may be past their prime, but they were better players than Austin and Ings. I know you shouldn't read too much into preseason results, but I remember watching the Chicago Fire (who are shit) easily beat Celtic a couple years back. I think MLS teams could compete in the Championship. How is this hard to believe?
OP is back from /bar/. Is pleased with success of thread.
In reward (I am pleased son).
