MLS on the NBC Sports Network is pretty nice.

The Red Bulls are pretty much dominating New England.

I would make a MLS season thread but I am the only one on the forum that cares about MLS.

I still follow DC United more or less fitfully...was STH from 2004-10 (may resume if they get a soccer-specific stadium near Metro); watched most of last night's match - good to see them back in the winning ways this season.

The apparent lack of interest in MLS on this forum may stem from its direct conflict with baseball season, something the European club seasons significantly avoid.

It's hard to like the Nats if you're a huge united fan since Nats Park essentially killed any shot of united getting a stadium

The studio guys were talking about who Wigan had beaten recently.   Impressive  ...      Speaking of which, Suarez had the day for Liverpool.   What beautiful goals he had.


All 3 of Suarez's goals were class, he's honestly world class, just a shame he's also a real idiot

The Bush recession was what probably did that, but anyways...

Did I just hear that correctly...there's an alcohol ban in Manchester for today's derby??  That should guarantee a riot.

Yep. That's crazy.

That Kompany yellow card was ridiculous. It's really odd to see United sitting back like this. They're usually the aggressive team.

Balotelli might be a headcase, but I can't believe he's not in this thing.

Most City fans are pretty happy about that. I think he'll get 15-20 minutes at the end.

If United change their strategy now with this lineup, City will kill them... again.

Better get the nitroglycerin handy, the second half is going to be off the hook

I like the decision to bring De Jong on for Tevez. Tevez was looking tired and it moves Yaya up front.
