Hopefully in LA proper and not Carson.

Also, I think they're clearly trying to set up a NY/LA rivalry here with this name. The LA vs NY sports rivalry goes back decades, and I think MLS is trying to build a new one with these two teams.

Wow there's a lot of powerful people in LAFC.. I would of liked LASC but I guess is good how it is. I'm guessing their gonna build a 40k plus stadium.

Gonna be real interesting to see how things work out in the next couple years with 2 teams both in LA and NY. ATM I'm very skeptical that both teams in both cities will stick. I wouldn't be surprised to see one team in both cities fail to draw significant support.

I don't see that happening. NYCFC are bringing in big names, which will push the Red Bulls to become more competitive. Same goes for Galaxy/LAFC. Competition breeds improvement.

Once again, there are no rules. Downtown location? No. Bid process? No. Don Garber may be a good czar of MLS but I feel let down as a fan of soccer in the USA. I sincerely hope this second team works well but I know for a fact that plenty of other "groups" around the country in different cities could definitely use an open-ended deal like "LAFC" just got. Must be nice, unless you are in Sactown, StLouis, Minneapolis, San Antonio, Las Vegas, or a host of other prospective cities.

Good luck finding a new fan base out there I thought most had decided already. Stupid.

I hope so, because overtime I could envision fans jumping all in on one team, leaving the other out in the cold! Maybe not soo much the Galaxy since they already have soo much successful history. But I could definitely see it happening in New York to the Red Bulls, especially if NYCFC jumps into the league and starts having a lot of success!

New Jersey has to embrace the Red Bulls. This was the first season since Henry joined that I have not been to at least one Red Bulls game and it seemed a large amount of the fans came by way of the PATH train from stations in NYC. I don't know what the percentage of people from New Jersey is but I imagine NYRB will lose a heavy amount of 5 boro fans. I have been to The Home Depot Center and saw the Galaxy face the Rapids and it was an evening game on a Friday and the crowd was decent but could have been better. I agree that a stadium in the city especially for soccer is crucial. Stadiums outside the city are better for more established sports with more established fan bases.

LA has the biggest soccer fan base/supporters than any other place in USA im sure with the right players and stadium location they will succeed. If LA Galaxy had a stadium Downtown i guarantee they would fill 50k Plus every game. I think NE Revolution can do 30k plus every game if they had a Soccer stadium downtown.

Chivas' dispersal draft to be held Nov 19th

There will a random weighted draw by envelope method
Non playoff teams get 2 envelopes
Playoff teams get one.

Caleb Calvert and Margo Delgado Chivas' homegrown players are eligible for the draft

Cubo Torres is not eligible. MLS is negotiating to keep him in the league

Anyone else concerned with the potential unbalance in MLS. Western Conference is losing Chivas (worst team annually) and adding KC & Houston, two usual solid teams. Eastern Conference is losing KC & Houston and adding two expansion teams. 5 of 10 teams make the playoffs in each conference. In the East you have Montreal, Toronto, and the two expansion teams. Teams like DC, Phile, NE, Chicago, NYRB should have a much easier go then RSL, KC, Houston, Dallas, et al

Just look at the NBA the West is always stronger than the East. 30 wins you make the playoffs in the east, and 50 wins in the west no playoffs.

I completely forgot about the Chivas USA Dispersal Draft. Only 7 players were selected, ouch!

I'm pretty pumped about DC United landing Thomas McNamara. He looked great in the few games he played before his injury. If he's fully recovered he could be an excellent pickup.
