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.

It's a fierce fightfor the remaining expansion slot up for grabs in Major League Soccer, and it looks like Las Vegas may have to bow out. 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.

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.

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.
