    For sure. I'm still salty that Accam isn't a gold, doesn't have 4* skills, and Manneh doesn't have a US badge yet. When's he gonna get called up anyway? Looks like we could use some more depth, particularly up front (I know he's more of a winger).

    Lolololol New England is woeful tonight. I can't blame them given the stadium they're playing in. Atlanta has the scariest stadium in MLS now. That crowd is deafening, and it's almost like White Hart Lane with how close the fans are to the pitch.

    I'm definitely gonna have to hit up Atlanta for a game someday.

    Going for the MLS record on Saturday vs Orlando. Opening up to 72,000

    That's ridiculous. That's creeping into the realm of NFL numbers. Also, I smell another 7-0 red wedding. 4 goals and we're not even at half time yet. Goodness.

    Yeah, 71K is the stated capacity for NFL (expandable). Similarly, CenturyLink holds 69K for NFL (which we've hit). Some NFL stadiums hold more, several hold less.

    Given MLS goes by sales and not gate, it's pretty much guaranteed they'll set the record, and given that nobody else realistically has the capacity to break that record, it'll likely stand for a very, very long time.

    In theory if Seattle makes another MLS Cup, and hosts, we *might* be able to pull off the expanded capacity for CenturyLink...but even that is only 72K, and I'm not sure we can even go past 69K in soccer configuration. So probably ain't happening. And with the MLS Cup being an East/West affair there's no real chance of a subway series getting bumped to a sufficiently large venue in LA, NY, etc.

    So yeah, this one may stand for a couple decades, just like the last.

    @heavymcd if LA Galaxy become relevant again, I could see them pulling those type numbers for the LA Derby. They just need to find a way to move the game to USC's stadium.

    I think the record will be broken either during or following the World Cup (assuming we make it, which isn't guaranteed right now). If we perform well like we did last time, soccer's popularity in the US will get another boost, which should manifest in MLS attendance numbers...assuming they don't all become fans of European teams.

    Looks like they made Jonathan Gonzalez (Monterrey) Mexican when he's always played with the US youth teams. :| He was even born here ffs.

    Oops.. seems like it was another Gonzalez :D. Wonder what he and other young players like Mckennie and Haji will be rated.

    Didnt watch the game but just saw stats. Nah that was someone else with the assist for Huddersfield. Newcastle beat Stoke 2-1 and Huddersfield tied Leicester 1-1

    Pretty sure Mears started out the year as starter but looks like Walkes has come up the pecking order for a while now

    I know Walkes has been doing well but with Garza out surely I thought he'd start

    Why isn't this game on Big Fox or ESPN? What a missed opportunity.
