I just go on the MLS website and watch the highlights. They're very good highlights to be honest.

Watched the sounders v galaxy yesterday. Cracking goal by Juninho to win it. Looked like a good attendance and atmosphere too so well done to the sounders fans
Sounders fans are great, the club averaged over 36,000 a game last year...tops in the MLS..

And MLS players have voted Qwest Field as the toughest environment in the league to play in...

After much speculation and time Caleb Folan has joined Colorado Rapids.

Thoughts on this?

Personally he was never very good in the EPL and Altidore was usually preferred to him.

Personally i don't really think he is that great. Many Hull fans did not like him and never thought he was good enough for them - I have family in Hull so this is not just made up.

I would much rather Casey playing instead, he is more physical and can finish.


His finishing was never really that great but it will be interesting to see how he plays and could be a good point of comparison between the EPL and MLS.

But anyway, good luck to him at the Rapids.

I think he will do good over here if he is given a chance. Hes not fit for the premiere league but might do good here, the MLS is a different setup to EPL. Not as fast paced or physical.

When Richie Baker came from Ireland and played for NE Revs he did great when he played but wouldnt stand a chance in the EPL. Only reason he went back was because Nichol is a terrible manager with no imagination at all.

I look forward to seeing Folan pull on the Rapids jersey and if he does fail he can always go play for some terrible team like Galaxy :P

It will be good and with teams getting stronger each year it will be a close one this year.

Thoughts on Angel going to LA from NY?

He still has the the touch and finishing. He is just lacking the pace a bit now but i think he would be good coaching younger and fringe players like you said.

This'll be my first year following the league.

Here in Washington, fanbase has cooled down compared to the glory years but it's still there.

Interesting to see what kind of leadership Ben Olsen will provide for the squad and what performance Charlie Davies will put on.

As good as Davies is i think it will be another hard season for DC. Other teams have strengthened more than i think they have and they were better before. I'm surprised he left France for the US.
