    I would be so happy if they announced a match on the East Coast.

    Tues?! Lame…make it a weekend!

    Love them all. Yes a weekend night would be better but impossible to schedule an entire summer tour on a weekend. The summer touring season of European teams has become a mini-season in and of itself for US Soccer fans. Clearly the summer tours have become a great success or we would not have them growing each summer as we have seen.

    The expansion of interest in the MLS has been greatly aided by the tours and hopefully both will continue to expand. While in the past I have supported the idea of a 39th game for the EPL I know question the need for it. The EPL would of course be welcome to play in Miami in February instead of Bolton, Wigin, etc., but at this point it’s their loss. MLS is now ready to stand on it’s own.

    whatever but ooh, what a shirt.

    I don’t care if the game is on a Tuesday. THE MAGS are in the STATES. I’m in Atlanta and I will definitely find my way to Columbus to see them in person.
