The swans are being bought by the DC United owner and the Memphis Grizzlies ceo. Another American group going across the pond. Since they have a much more limited budget then some other epl clubs, and being associated with dc I wonder how long before some American goes over there?

Yeah after several years. Anyways is it privately funded or is some coming out of tax payers? Also a historic club like DC should of had a world class stadium many years ago just that their owners are cheap and greedy same goes for the revs it seems like the crafts have forgotten they own a soccer team.

Irrelevant rant. DC owners are building a stadium. Which was your original argument that they weren't building DC a stadium. You were corrected.

Just let him be. He'll tire himself out soon enough.

I wouldn't mind seeing some Americans at Swansea. The Brodg is reportedly being looked at for manager next season. If Yedlin can't get playing time at Spurs, Swansea would actually be a great place to head to.

Amazing how so many new clubs that have came in after DC have new stadiums i call BS on the land waiting to get approved im sure there were several places around to build a stadium they were just greedy. Also Look at Beckhams new club in Miami they just recently got approved it doesn't take years to get some freaking land all it takes is $$..

What's your point? So the owners can purchase an EPL club in a matter of months maybe less but take several years to finally get a stadium. I mean isn't their first priority their club seems like they don't care much about them that's why DC gets criticized a lot. Horrible ownership and let me guess they will probably spend 5xs more on Swansea than the stadium they will build for DC.

I find it hilarious that they invest hugely on a team in Europe rather than their own. I mean isn't DC their first choice to invest in since their the owners, is cool to invest and all and to build their capital but the fact that they threat DC like a mickey mouse organization is a joke. They haven't done squad to improve the team in all aspects, from academy's, facilities, infrastructure, players, etc...

It's funny how out of touch with reality you are. Do you think there are just 5,6,7 places in dc area that could build a stadium and accommodate parking, shopping, hotels, etc. ideally you build a new stadium on a separate location, then move in when it's done (see quakes). Most teams don't want to temporarily relocate to a nearby stadium (like a football stadium) because then they pay rent and lose gate receipts, concession money, etc. that's a last resort and usually a losing proposition. The only way that usually works out is if in exchange for the 2-4 years it takes the public foots a good portion of the bill. Tax payers refuse and the team stays in old crappy stadium making small renovations when able and keep looking/negotiating other locations. That's called real life.

Did you really use Beckham and Miami to prove your point? You do realize Beckham has been trying for several years to find a location and has had like 3-4 different locations shot down, before he was finally able to get a location/land. If anything that disproves your point.

Also It's the MLS. There is no "historical" club.
