Isn't this this second season in a row that a team has made consecutive promotions to get to the premier league? It's very impressive. Was it Norwich last season?

Yup. And Man City did it in 2000.

Back to MLS: anyone watch DC United-Philadelphia? What a mess. 1-1, game winning penalty discounted, four red cards, poor officiating, teammates shoving each other.

My name is Phillip and I'm a soccer fan!

I enjoyed it during the 90s when we hosted the WC. Played on a club team in college before catching mono and having to give it up . Hadn't thought much about it since then. About 5 or 6 years ago a university TV station started rebroadcasting Everton matches and it became a habit for me to catch a game or 2 every week and have a pint of homebrew. I've been increasingly following the game ever since.

Fast forward to current times. I'm a MLS Live subscriber (though I won this year's subscription via fantasy play ), following MLS, Everton & Newcastle to a lesser degree in the EPL, and Barca in La Liga. Living more than a 9 hour drive each way from any MLS franchise when I started following the league a few years back I decided to follow one original team from each conference and one new expansion team. Thus I follow Chicago/Philly in the east and LA/Seattle in the west.

Only 2 sports I have time for are soccer and college football but I do catch a boxing match when I can! Thanks for the soccer thread.

Chicago, LA and Seattle? You must have a high tolerance for player whining.

Still, I'm sure you were as happy as I was to see Everton win yesterday.

Been a long time coming for sure. Everton does wonderful with the budget they have and I'm comfortable putting David Moyes in the upper echelon of EPL coaches.

Any soccer fan has a high degree of tolerance for whining don't they? Beckham has made a fool of himself more than once over the past couple years... whatever it takes for him to get into the game!

Anyone else follow the CONCACAF Champions League? Really entertaining seeing MLS teams vs non MLS teams. So far this year the teams are looking good... of course they aren't facing Mexican sides just yet!

Houston's B-side was really impressive playing away. Well everyone was impressive except for Adam Moffett... man dude has never impressed me, but I never saw him totally suck like he did the other night!
