 I'm fine with the colors, the logo is one of the better ones around too.  I don't like the name at all though.

I will say this, seeing as though the other names in contention were "Philadelphia SC", "Philadelphia AC", and "Philadelphia City", they chose the best one. That's not saying much though

Logos not bad. Not crazy about the colours, but they are distinct.

They should get the Union designer to work on the flag then. He did fantastic considering what he was working with. What an ugly flag.

Night games are my favourite, which we usually get midweek. Thankfully they have been starting them at 8:00 PM this year. 7:00 was pretty tight to hit for most nine-to-fivers.

Should be a good game tonight. Come on Chivas! Anything to keep Chicago down. The difference between the two conferences is ridiculous.

What do you think about going to a single table? I know everyone is playoff crazy in north america but I don't know that it necessarily translates to soccer fans.

Without relegation, a single table loses some of it's lustre though.

I never really cared one way or another regarding single table. with the playoff format the way it is and all, it basically makes it a single table at the end of the day anyway.

it was nice to kick Chivas in the nuts yesterday lol

Yeah that was a good win for you guys yesterday. Nice little streak you are on.

As always Mo is continuing to tinker with our team. Brought in Garcia from San Jose, and looking to sign Ali Gerba tomorrow. De Guzman DP rumours are flying around but I think that is still a couple years out.

Got my Real Madrid friendly tix today.

De Guzman would be awesome to see in MLS. Are you guys using the DP slot on DeRo or is that what's fueling the rumors?

Kind of excited to see how Seattle-DC match up against each other tonight.

No our DP slot isn't being used at all. DeRo is getting $360,000 I think.

Looks like they are signing Ali Gerba today. Haven't heard any more on De Guzman sadly.

Thanks for the reminder on Seattle-DC.

Ricketts and Johann Smith released to make room for Ali Gerba. Man, he works so well with DeRo. If this De Guzman deal comes though lookout.

Gerba highlight:

Some shake-ups going on. Earlier this week we shipped Noonan to Colorado for $ and a 1st round pick. Clears up a lot of space for some mystery player.

Our assistant had been in Ghana recently...

and friggin ESPN... the college world series ran so far over that I missed the first 61 minutes of the DC-Seattle game. Yep. Just over 2/3rds the game lol. AND it looked to be a cracking one too

 ESPN was doing this to Indycar.

MLS will be on Versus within 2 years.

But EPL and maybe the SPL on ESPN. Setanta didn't pay their bills on time.

Supposedly GOL is going to start showing MLS games but I haven't seen anything other than two-week old TFC matches.

I didn't know ESPN got the Prem rights. Interesting. Wish I had cable now!

It's not the same deal Setanta had though; they won't be covering all the games. You'll get a couple good games weekly, but it won't be the full gamut.

I actually think it will be very frustrating to find out who is carrying which game.

ESPN only got the British rights to those games, so you won't be seeing any of them on ESPN in the States. FSC and Setanta North America are still the places to see the Premiership

Setanta UK's administration is not going to effect Setanta North America, at least not yet. Setanta North America actually turns a profit and will still be sharing the Premiership rights with FSC in the US

Wild timing...I literally just finished it as well.

Biggest shocker to me was that Landycakes isn't actually gay. He's married, and to a hottie? Why can't he support his own wrists?

Things sure are going to be interesting in LA for the rest of the season.
