Liverpool. I also have grown to hate Chelsea even more this year (mostly because of Jose Murinho). I typically despise the big clubs in most leagues, including your Man U, and Man City of course. But Liverpool I have a seething hate for and typically want whoever is playing them to stomp a mud hole in them.


So... should Rams fans start collectively and wholeheartedly hating Arsenal if Kroenke moves the team to LA?


I already hate them because of Kroenke.
I am kind of hating the Rams right now too...and I hate Kroenke even more for making me hate the Rams.

I sort of feel the same way too. I don't outright hate them but mostly because they always seem to get in their own way.

As for Kroenke, him making me question my Rams fandom is almost unforgivable. Even if they build a stadium and the team stays...how many people will he have driven off because of this?

MLS players are threatening to strike. Like anyone would notice if they all disappeared! :lol:

Garber said MLS is losing $100 million a year. I'm surprised it's not a lot more considering the WNBA gets more viewers!

MLS avoids a strike and has a great first weekend. That Orlando City crowd was pretty spectacular. I really like that Fox and ESPN now have set weekly time slots so it's easy to find games.

A great first weekend that 99.9% of the nation could care less about. :lol:

If you ask the average person on the street they'll tell you MLS is a real estate listing service.

Ouch...I guess since you guys have never been much of a threat I have never really hated Everton. How's the bottom of the table looking? :wink:

I do of course hate ManUre the most of any team. I wish for them to fail as soon as they walk out of the dressing room on to the pitch. Loathe them! Hate them! Just saying I hate them! :evil:

I don't like the Chavs but that's mostly because of Jose Moron-ho. It's weird because I don't hate Man City that much. I guess it's because they were in the lower leagues for so long. I don't begrudge them for being bought by a Bazillionare. I bet all teams wish that would happen to them. Pellegrini seems like a real classy fellow. Hope they catch the Chavs...

Haha...yeah, I deserve that. Bottom of the table is nerve wracking but Roberto Martinez is as positive and sunny as ever!

Oh, by the way, 62,000 in Orlando for a soccer match. Pulled in decent ratings in the UK, where rights were recently purchased to air MLS games over there, as well.

LOL..how many were illegals? :lol:

After all, they're between 12 and 20 million illegals here. The mainstream media still totally ignores MLS. MLS will never be part of American sports culture like the other team sports are.

Oh come on, I hate soccer as much as anyone but I know and you know and everyone knows that "99.9% of America doesn't care about soccer" is a flat out lie.

I said MLS and it's very true.

About .1% care about MLS which is around 320,000 people. So around 99.9% of people don't. I've asked many people about MLS and most don't even know what it is other than the real estate listing service.

See, even Oakland Blue doesn't know what MLS is! :lol:

As far as the UK buying rights to MLS they are crazy to begin when it comes to sports. They are so used to being dead BORED from sucker...err soccer that they'll watch ANY version of people kicking a ball back & forth to each other! :lol:

We are ALL ice hockey fans here and hockey is a SUPERIOR version of soccer. You score just like soccer but it's a LOT faster plus there is a physical aspect of hockey that soccer doesn't have. And you don't fall asleep during a hockey game! :lol:

For those interested, Saint Louis FC home opener tickets went on sale yesterday. Other single game tickets on sale soon. I've got mine locked up for the home opener. I'm really pumped to get back to Soccer Park for the first time in 5 years.

This thread was not started so you could troll for reactions and constantly criticize soccer.

Unless you have something to really contribute in this thread, kindly stay out.

All of our team allegiances aside, I am sure we can all hail Paris Saint Germain for knocking the fothermucking Chelsea out of the competition, and doing it inspite of Zlatan being sent off for no reason. Cudos to the Chelsea old boy David Luiz!! I never liked him before but he's my hero now. As is Tiago Silva, of course.

P S G! P S G! P S G! :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

Now if only Real would implode in a spectacular fashion.... :ninja:

Where do I send a donation to help end MLS? That disease needs to be cured before it affects anymore unsuspecting futbal fans.

Lori Chalupny was interviewed on Show Me St.Louis today. She is coming with the USWNT next month for a friendly at Busch. She of course is from St.Louis and said it's her dream to play at Busch. She will likely be on the USWNT at the World Cup this summer.

Read the wrong way, that post sounds horribly wrong. She's from the STL and it's her dream to play in Busch? :shock:
