The Yanks Are Coming: A closer look at the failed Rafa Marquez experiment

Quote :
In a lot of ways, the Rafa Márquez experiment in NY was a more
important experiment than the David Beckham experiment was for MLS.
Márquez was supposed to bring in Mexicans — a huge untapped fan base
just hopping up and down in the tunnel to step out and support an MLS
side, the El Tri fans that bring with them big money and an insatiable
appetite for football, that other Big Green Monster that USMNT fans
love to hate.
Mexican fans, along with soccer-mom families and supporters groups
were supposed to be the holy triumvirate to take MLS to the
profitability promise land. But there’s an inherent conflict among the
three. Supporters and Mexican fans like to cuss, families don’t.
Supporters groups and families largely support the USMNT, Mexican fans
don’t. So, how do you expect three completely disparate groups to
harmonize into one big happy family in MLS stadia around the United
States? Moreover, how are you everything to everyone?

Soccer America's MLS Power Rankings, 27 Sept

Quote :
4. FC DALLAS (13-10-7, 46 pts.). If
FCD isn’t quite in freefall, it’s close enough to cause concern. It
lost to state rival Houston, 1-0, when it conceded a header from a
corner kick in the 87th minute. FCD hit the woodwork three times and
lost an apparent goal to a pushing foul. That’s three league losses in a
row, all by shutout, and next up is a midweek trip to Panama for a
crucial CCL game and then on to Colorado, which is just four points
behind in the standings. Last week: 4.

New York Times: Red Bulls' Frank Rost is old-school, and proud of it

Quote :
Asked why he stuck with the shoes made of kangaroo leather (a variation on the classic Copa Munidal model, which has molded studs), Rost went off on a riff about the footwear choices of some of today’s players.

"Why would you wear those new plastic cleats?” Rost said. “Luke [Rodgers] has those new Nikes and he said the ball slides off his foot. What do you expect?"

sections of the north end of the stadium to increase capacity for those
games.

They already have ones to cover the endline that got used during the College Cup games a few years back and it's my understanding they use them for several of the high school football games as well.

Steven Goff Q&A with DC United President Kevin Payne

Quote :
What’s the state of the club’s finances?

“It’s a struggle for us here at RFK. We have the highest expenses and lowest revenue.”

How long can you keep going at that rate?


“We can’t.”

MLS overtakes the NBA and NHL in average attendance

Quote :
MLS has a long way to go to catch baseball and football. Most MLS stadia
have a capacity far below their average park gate counts. But look at
the growth rate in soccer than the NFL and baseball don’t have: 5.5 million people watched a game of soccer in 2011, up 37 percent from 2010.
