    Trying to find the article, but Manchester City has built a few community pitches around the US too. It really does seem like a promotional tool, but if that's what they want to do, that's cool.

      Well if it is a promotional tool, it will be a better one if they win. At the least they should sign some City vets as DPs. Seems like the perfect place for Joey Barton and Wayne Bridge

        Miami + Beckham would get Ibrahimovic easy. He loves Miami

              Some USL stuff from today:

              Oklahoma City's USL team will be called Oklahoma City Energy FC. Yeah. Here's a release about the name and stadium, and a tweet about their logo.

              The Sacramento Republic, another new team, announced stadium plans and MLS ambitions.

              Oklahoma City actually has an NASL team coming too, so that'll be...interesting.

                Sporting KC won the eastern conference tonight. I'd give a breakdown of the match but I watched UCLA-Arizona State instead.

                  Don't mind me, i just wanted to say that the initial question was "Which is the derby that you enjoy watching the most ?" ?

                  Now i doubt that many people here watched Celtic - Rangers or watch Boca - River constantly? I think i quoted the wrong person but whatever...

                    Michael Bradley all but locked up, Jermain Defoe to be presented on Monday, Dwayne De Rosario back in red, Gilberto signed as a very good "second DP" from Brazil, Justin Morrow in from San Jose and then several very solid young players seems to indicate Toronto FC could post the one of the biggest one-year turnarounds in MLS history. 29 points last season. The record is 21-->51 by NYRB. We'd have to get to 59..hmmm...that might be tough.

                    I have to say, if the Michael Bradley thing comes to pass (and all signs point to it), then that is probably the biggest MLS signing since Beckham, for different reasons, of course.

                      This is how major disappointments are created. Ask the Lakers last year.

                        For sure. Or the Blue Jays.

                        Still, taking last year's team and replacing some of our worst players with Bradley, Defoe, Gilberto and DeRo has to have an impact. I mean, think about dropping those four into the spots occupied by Jeremy Hall, Robert Earnshaw, Justin Braun and Bobby Convey.

                          The potential for a turnaround is massive but I worry about how much they're spending on them, especially an aging striker like Defoe. That said, Keane came over and has done really, really well for Los Angeles.

                            Is DeRo even any good anymore?

                              Defoe is 31. I think he must have something left.

                              Not as a main man, but I think he can still be effective in a reduced role.

                                DeRo can still hit a freekick as well as anyone in the league, that'll be a great asset with Gilberto and Defoe earning good ones.
