I read articles like this one & get irritated once again with #VanniSartini. #VWFC & players on the team are rarely featured. It's obvious to anyone who follows #MLS that VWFC is the "poor stepchild" of the league. Ryan Raposo & Simon Becher are promising young players whose current careers are at the "mercy" of Sartini. Older players (24-28) were brought to the team in an attempt to save it & Sartini's insistence on zonal play is crashing the team & careers.

I am furious after reading this article quoting #vannisartini. I didn't like him as a coach before & I really don't like him now. A team, any team, can't win games using an antiquated idealistic management style that no other team in the league recognizes. It sets the team up for failure from the get go. Players have earned the right to try to succeed using the rules of the game today, not those from 50 yrs ago. Sartini will ruin careers
I was watching the #Sounders match tonight and I had to Google, "what is scoring 4 goals in a game called".
It's called a HAUL.
Jordan Morris scored a HAUL tonight.
Jordan Morris subbed off.
Clint Mathis remains king.
Clint Mathis' MLS-record 5 goals is in play tonight. Jordan Morris with 4 for Seattle through 78 minutes.
Emmanuel Iwe makes his #MNUFC debut, on a short-term first-team contract. Impressive to see how many minutes the staff trusts him with tonight.

I may be angry at the #MLS for these new barriers to watching games, but at least I have a cat and knitting in my lap.

Major League #soccer – which started its 2023 season this weekend – is the most diverse league in the US. Its predecessor, the North American Soccer League, or NASL led the way.
NASL searched for players who were talented but also undervalued. “This often meant bringing in African and African diaspora players”

“#MLS is boring.”
Oh wait that was Liverpool v. Palace. This ATX v STL game is actually 3-2 with several lead changes in the second half.
So can anyone tell me why we have Brits announcing American #MLS matches? Sorry but I find these commentators annoying as fuck. #austinfc #stlcitysc

The MLS 360 whip around show is pretty good. I have it on a second screen while the ATLUTD match is on, nice way to keep up with the rest of the league.
Nashville looking really good in the season opener for #MLS. Or maybe NYCFC looks really bad. Entertaining match either way.

Here’s how to redeem free MLS Season Pass from T-Mobile
Massive media fail from Inter Miami. (The coverage they objected to was an interview with their own head coach...in which he supported the promotion-relegation league format.) #MLS #mastodonfc
Can any #MastodonFC #MLS fans explain why best of three playoffs is a good idea? Seems like a step in the wrong direction for #soccer.
Watching one of the first MLS broadcast on Apple TV (preseason LA Galaxy vs Toronto FC). It feels like the dress rehearsal it is. The video quality is far better than ESPN’s stream ever was, but the audio mix is way off and the graphics are glitchy. Also, bittersweet seeing Sean Johnson in goal. #MLS #AppleTV #LAGalaxy #TorontoFC #NYCFC
The overall quality of a MLS preseason game on MLS Season Pass is better than most of what I saw on Bally Sports … ever. The score bug feels like it could use some design help but the stream quality, commentary and pregame/halftime coverage is way better.
If you're on TMobile, next Tuesday you can get the new MLS season pass for free, using their TMobile Tuesdays app.
So what I've learned from all #MLS these kit releases is that I need to buy some more long sleeve tees to wear under my jersey. Or at least a hoodie. That's the thing now I guess? #MastodonFC
