    2019 CCL thread, thought I’d start it off with this huge bit of schadenfreude:



    “Monster Jam” and “Supercross” are scheduled in February, Georgia gonna be Georgia.

    A reminder for as much as MLS fawns over Atlanta - they aren’t first choice there either.

    YASSSSS, for all those douches making fun of us playing in yankee stadium i reply to them:
    1) you play on turf, and its ugly turf no less and that's pretty embarrassing for a city that has an average annual temperature of mid 60s and 200+ sunny days per year. You should be on grass anything less is a joke.
    2) You're kidding yourself if you think its your stadium. Its the falcon's stadium and your just allowed to play there..... to which they always reply nooooooo it was build with soccer in mind..... and now we can say it was built for the falcons in mind, than monster jam than maybe some concerts TBD, than ATLUTD. If it weren't they'd have saved the date for your matches. You're second class citizens in your "home".

    If it was built with soccer in mind, then they wouldn't have sight lines in the stadium (and on tv), that completely cut off the views in the corners.

    Well, CCL starts this week. And it's quite funny how Atlanta stole our CCL spot and they won't be able to host at home.

    ATL earned their spot by winning the cup. NJ stole our spot.

    I'm only rooting for Sporting Kansas City. Hoping for early exits for the other MLS teams.

    I’m rooting for ATL finally bringing it home for MLS. Really only rooting against NJ bc I always do. Want all the other MLS teams to advance as far as possible.

    Has anyone confirmed how to watch this on a tv? Yahoo and the CONCACAF press release just say "available through the Yahoo Sports app on iOS and Google Play, as well as on desktop at Yahoo Soccer’s home page."

    I downloaded the yahoo app on my Roku which includes in its description "live sports" but I didn't see anything like that when I browsed the content and there's no way to preview what might be available at a later date

    That’s a good question. Just downloaded the yahoo app on firestick bc you said something. It’s has a sports section with clips. I guess we’ll find out tomorrow. There’s always Kodi...

    and yet they have the hardest tie, everyone else got easy ass teams. Herediano can only do something if De Boer fucks up.

    EDIT: I think on paper monterrey is favorite. Tigres wont ever win a international tournament as long as tuca is there. we will see what happens, last year my chivas won, in the most unlikely fashion ever with how that team was playing at the time.

    It's basically like a team from the Bronx beating them.

    True... But i think Trinidad has more of a soccer rep than DR.

    But will be nice to see DR move on.. Team is founded by Argentinian expats

    it certainly is being invested in recently. Cibao was another team that was doing well. Pity they wont be in the next CCL since they didnt register their representatives for the caribbean cup for this year. i think there was issues with their federations president

    They should have given TFC's spot to Las Vegas Lights. Wynalda coaching thru skype would have been fun.

    Edit: Woooow they look like my Sunday league team. Absolutely awful.
