Thanks for telling us what we're already well aware of, Carcedo!

Last I checked MLS now has higher attendance averages than most leagues around the world, and I'm pretty sure that includes Serie A.

Obviously not the best showing, but I didn't think the guys looked as bad as the 4-1 scoreline would lead one to believe. There were clear holes in the defense - a long-standing defect on the USMNT - but there were good scoring opportunities as well. A good reality check that we've done well lately, but we're still not in that class yet.

Here in Kansas City, the owners of Sporting Kansas City have done everything right. Incredible new 19,000 seat stadium (recently named best in the world), awesome fan experience, locally televised games. It course it helps they've done so well the last 12 months, but having owners that are willing to put their money where their mouth is has made a BIG impact for MLS here. Games are sold out the rest of the year already.

Too bad our lazy youth will never put in enough time to become a world class players. This is regardless of popularity...

The average attendance for Seria A is a bit over 23,000, MLS is just over 17,000.

Hate to just jump in without reading all 57 pages, but I saw this and had to make a comment.
