    USMNT will probably be playing in ATL on July 22nd. Finally my chance to go to a game that matters.

    Went to the game at Foxborough last week. It was my first time seeing our top team and it did not disappoint.

    I've only seen the USMNT once and it was a World Cup warmup last summer. I wanted to go to the match in Atlanta, but I leave for a trip to the day after :/

    Went to a match in Nashville a couple years ago and was on cloud 9 the entire time. However, the downside was that I evilly glared at all Hispanic people I saw for the rest of the day (we played a latin American team that day).

    Atlanta picked up a MLS team. Starts in the 2017 season.

    If the Independence build a nice enough stadium and get a solid following then I could see the discussion in 5 or so years. But need a nice stadium in a good area where people will come, something like the Knights have. Most people don't really care about baseball that much but it is a good excuse to get a great view of the city, enjoy a little sports and have craft beer at an outdoor location with friends before going out.

    You can still get lower bowl for $75 in ATL. The tickets includes both semi-final games I believe. So tempted.

    supposedly there is a group of investors looking into renovating memorial stadium into a 20 or 22k seat stadium in attempts to have an MLS franchise. Read about it a few weeks back when they were talking about how BOA stadium wants to host at least 2 major soccer clubs a year.

    That would be pretty badass if I am thinking of the correct stadium. Maybe try and develop a little area of bars right there as well.

    I just read an article about it and this might be an issue for MLS as they seem to try and focus on the clubs having soccer-specific stadiums, "
    The stadium recently underwent another renovation for the Major League Lacrosse Charlotte Hounds, which McPhilliamy and his partners also own. It would still host high school football games and other sports and civic events."

    I have been looking the last few moments for the article i read on this subject. It said that memorial would be soccer specific in that article and it was more recent. Maybe March or April when it came out.

    Thought they could've done so much better with the crest. Despite looking like a caffeine free Coke bottle, they have decent enough colors to work with. The jersey mock ups I've seen aren't too bad.

    Is "Atlanta United" really the best name they could come up with? FC ATL would be my pick.

    I would give my left nut to watch them win the gold cup in Philly. Both nuts to win the world cup (after building a semen supply of course)

    I'll be in Atlanta next week.

    The original Dos a Cero in 2001 is my favorite non-Clemson event I've been to.

    Really like that lineup, excited to see what Johannsson can do. His skill is pretty impressive.

    Also like Zardes as a winger

    Johannson and Zardes have earned starts, but I'm confused at why you bring in Beasley only to leave Chandler at RB. I assumed the whole reason he was brought in was to play LB so Fabs could play on his natural right.

    Of course Chandler gets a fucking assist. What're you gonna do?
