    Lol. Violet is the color of their kit, so I'm going to assume that "commit" is synonymous with "sign" and the translation didn't take into account verb tense (or something). This would resolve to "it is unlikely that the club from the 'Big Apple' would sign [another Wien player] after Ismael Tajouri".

    And if that's correct I would guess they missed our raid on Malmo last season ;)

    Also why on earth would we not want to go back to the club that gave us Isi? Sign the whole squad and tell them to bring beer and pretzels.

    To add a bit more context. A 23-year-old Brazilian winger. Short - 5'-4.5". So far in the current season has appeared in 10 games, with 1 goal in 287 minutes.

    By contrast, during the first half of last season, Izzy appeared in 17 games, with 2 goals in 1,219 minutes.

    I like weekday matches more than weekends. So I won't hate it, but I'll understand everyone else's frustration. 2 & 3 are on point.

    Weekday matches will actually now be good for me because I (almost surely, I'll know Wednesday) accepted a job offer near Bryant Park, meaning I will no longer be driving in to work but rather taking a train, meaning I can get to the games much quicker! (5pm end of work)

    I’m with ShwaftaShwafta - I’m now in Greenwich. Weekday is great for me now. Not so much for bringing the family but ok for me.

    The show will be annoying, parceling out info in ways nobody cares about. Everyone just wants a list with their team's schedule. We don't want a segment on when the MLS cup rematch is, then when rivalry games happen, then when other big games happen, then OMG the Timbers will start with __ road games followed by __ home games.

    But of course the league needs those streaming stats to push to sponsors!

    Training camp starts Jan. 26. They've only announced the one preseason game so far, so we're still waiting for preseason details.

    That's been the rumor, but the team hasn't confirmed anything yet. There appears to be a couple of preseason games there, too, but that's also not confirmed. Would think the preseason schedule has to get released pretty soon, especially since the regular-season schedule comes out later today.
