  1. I seem to remember that few of the 1950 U.S. World Cup members were from St. Louis. Despite not having an MLS team, I would say that St. Louis’ soccer heritage is just as rich as anywhere else in the U.S.

    1. It’s a great soccer city (and another area of the country where there’s no MLS team). Should be a great atmosphere at the match tonight. Looking forward to watching it on TV.

      1. St Louis is also known as one of best sports towns in the states. In MLB they have most the respectful fans in the league. Amazing sports town with faithful and respectful fans, they should be up for next MLS franchise.

  2. Let’s hope both sets of players are still in a competitive mode and not yet on holiday. Would like to see a good game and hope the stars play. Hate to see the likes of Mata, Oscar, Silva, Toure, Hazard, to name a few missing in action.

    1. If only! Sinclair is injured and Malouda is training on his own until his contract expires.

  3. Saint Louis definitely needs an MLS team or at least a semi-professional team. In other towns, it’s out of the ordinary if you play football. But in Louie, you’re considered a minority if you DON’T play football- everyone plays. Plus, we have fantastic fans for sport of all kinds, and a lot of English and French immigrants that would enjoy a football spectacle. Speaking from a British point of view myself, I’d like a professional football team.
