MLS 2021

Obviously still in the off season but thought I would start this thread now with a few interesting stories breaking over the past few weeks

Comments

  • Former Man Utd defender Gabriel Heinze was appointed as the new manager of Atlanta, hopefully he can bring back the touch the last Argentinian had and it will be a good season for the 5 stripes
  • Phil Neville is now being spoken about as the potential manager for Inter Miami, apparently David Beckham has already held discussions with him
  • There were rumours that DC United were in discussions to sign Ozil, personally I would be surprised with that as he would need to drop his wages significantly but if he was to sign for DC United it would be a big signing for them
  • There were rumours that DC United were in discussions to sign Ozil, personally I would be surprised with that as he would need to drop his wages significantly but if he was to sign for DC United it would be a big signing for them
    I’m not sure - I would assume he would be one of the “Designated Players” for DC so he could probably still command astronomical wages there. 

    I saw that Messi has started talking about how he’s always dreamed of playing in the US 🤣

    I still dont think they would be able to offer anywhere near what he is on at Arsenal lol, so would need to drop his wages significantly 

    Ozil is currently on 18M pounds a year i believe which is around 24M Dollars(based on a quick Google search)

    Zlatan was on around 7.2M Dollars a year which was the highest in 2019

    Hernandez on around 7.2M Dollars a year which ahaim was the highest in 2020

    Both obviously LA Galaxy players, just cant see DC going to massively high

    Would probably make more sense to compare what he will be able to command elsewhere when his contract at Arsenal comes to an end because that £18M will likely be a thing of the past. MLS might be his best bet at that point. 
  • Be nice if my local team, the Vancouver Whitecaps, could put on a few performances. Absolutely awful last year.
  • Phil Neville has stepped down as England women's manager a few months early.

    Looks like Inter Miami are getting there man then lol
  • Saturday 3rd April MLS season starts

    Hoping to get a fix of live football when the new stadium opens in Austin. The city is very excited for the inaugural season - prior to this year, it’s been the largest city in the country without a pro sports team.

    Think the additions of Besler and Ring from KC and NYC respectively will be make sure that the first season is a respectable one - closer to what Nashville did and not the circus of Cincinnati, hopefully.

    Sandgaard, if you’re reading this - please organise a pre season tour with a stop in Texas. :-)

    MLS have announced every team's first home game so that means the vast majority of the second weekend of games have been announced too.

    In addition, the first home games in their new stadiums were announced for FC Cincinnati and Austin FC:

    Sunday 16th May:
    FC Cincinnati vs Inter Miami CF

    Saturday 19th June:
    Austin FC vs San Jose Earthquakes
  • I'm hoping I can go to the Whitecaps Portland game.

    Full 2021 schedule was released yesterday. Heavily weighted in favour of intra-conference matches to restrict cross-country travel as much as possible.

    MLS experts can correct me if I’m wrong but you’d usually play home and away against all teams in your conference (East or West) and then one game, home or away, against the teams in the other conference to make up the remainder. At the end of it all, every team has played 34 games.

    Taking Austin’s fixtures as an example of what’s changed for 2021, they play only Nashville and Columbus from the eastern conference while having three games against Dallas, Houston and other western conference teams.
  • I get that the stadium isn't finished and there's no fans in attendance anyway, but looks incredibly weird having a game played out on a training pitch doesn't even have permanent goals!
