New Crew stadium renderings in this article: https://www.dispatch.com/sports/20190924/crew-unveils-detailed-renderings-of-arena-district-stadium

 

Must be nice for cities with ample available land to develop!

 

I look forward to wearing blue and orange in this palace. I hope Anthony Precourt looks at this and has buyer's remorse about his crappier version in an office park in nowhere near downtown Austin.

 

It's really remarkable what's happened to the Arena District in Columbus. When I was in high school I'd go to Blue Jackets games and I'd park in a free secret location that might as well have been a dirt road, and walk two minutes into the arena. That spot is now where home plate of Huntington Park sits.

Crew fans on Facebook asked who should MLS have open the new stadium, the majority wanted it to be FC Cincinnati. Somehow I think the first opponent will be NYCFC or Chicago Fire.

Precourt is too busy hanging out with his new best friend Matthew McConaghuey to care.

They probably want FC Cincinnati because it looks like it'll be an easy win. This is what, 18 months, away? A lot can/will change by then. I actually would rather have an out of conference non-rival come in for the first game(s) so the star of the show is the new stadium and not the rivalry.

Got to be FCC or Austin - for maximum chaos.

You don't want to wreck the stadium on the day it opens

My assumption has been that Atlanta United is still the best team in the east and NYCFC being on top is an abberation.

 

NYCFC putting the lie to that tonight. Wow! 3-0 at the half!

I just want Inter Miami to exist at one point. 

 

I don't. It'll totally kill my gimmick.

Montreal can somehow win the Canadian Championship (defeating Toronto tonight) but still cant beat Cincinnati.

And without a couple of our best players.

Certainly the best player was out.

 

This whole season has been "This is fine! They'll figure it out!" but time is running out fast. All I really want is to have the 11 be healthy and see what they can do.

I just want Sporting KC to not give up goals in the final few minutes of a game, but that's clearly asking far too much.

NYCFC haven't clinched the East yet.

 

A win over Columbus on Sunday for the Union, and a loss to New England by NYCFC (and note, they're without three of their better players), and it all comes down to Decision Day in Philly.

Earlier this summer I went through security with Wondo. I wanted to say something about that missed goal at the World Cup, but I never would and I'm not a garbage person.

 

I will say this -- up close and personal, Chris Wondolowski is super fit and handsome.

But yeah, that story would have been a lot better had the Quakes not coughed it up.
