    See the USL has been sold and not to the MLS so that puts paid to that idea:

    I don’t understand why they don’t have promotion and relegation in US sports – why can’t the USL winners/second place come up to the MLS or something like that, or one from each conference changes each season?

    Soccer in the US isn’t big enough to the point where any city could support a division 1 MLS team. Plus, each MLS club owner pays a fee to get into the league and has to work very hard to construct a stadium for their team. Financially it doesn’t make sense.

    Good rally in Utah to come back to beat El Salvador, Trinidad & Tobago could be a good match tonight, they really need the win, as do we. United States, Mexico & Costa Rica will qualify automatically I think, how about you theschwab? So close right now, can’t see Honduras holding out at the top for long.
