United goes to a venue that they've failed to win in since 2009, give or take one Open Cup match, to face a Chicago team that cannot afford a loss.

For the Chicago Fire, there's almost no margin for error as their playoff hopes dwindle with each passing week. They've struggled to win all year long, but are unbeaten at home since early June and have beaten some solid playoff teams along the way.

Reports out of Sin City indicate a plan to build an MLS stadium there will not get approval from the city council. If it is rejected when it comes up for a vote next month, that will likely mean a knockout for the Las Vegasbid for an MLS team.

New logo for MLS is rather interesting

I posted this over at, thought it was worth brining over here as well.

There had been whispers of a new MLS logo for some time. I believe I was told two years ago that the league was looking into a re-brand that would likely happen before too long. It turned out that the league wisely waited for a new logo to be reveal before their 20th season.

Love it or hate it, the new Major League Soccer logo is here. The famous boot-and-ball logo is out, and a minimalist crest with only the letters "MLS" and three stars is in. MLS Commissioner Don Garber defended the logo on Thursday, saying the crest itself identified it as a soccer logo without the presence of a soccer ball.

Recount Of The Drama That Unfolded At The US Open Cup Final

Many know that while I am a huge soccer fan and a fan of my local Philadelphia Union, I am not a fan of MLS at all. While the quality of play leaves a lot to be desired, my main complaint with the league is the way it (for me) sucks the soul out of the game, with all of its complex rules for signing players, parity mechanisms such as player lotteries and drafts, as well as the fact that many games mean really nothing at all since over half the teams make the play-offs and there is no relegation.
