match tonight will be interesting. Arriaga out with injury and Rosales out with accumulated yellow cards. Jacori Hayes might wind up starting.
Amarilla is playing better lately. The entire team is.Wow. I experienced the full range of emotions last night. Maybe we have turned a corner as typically we would collapse after going down on the road. Good to see Luis amarilla keep scoring. SKC and DC United next week
He was in the stadium but not allowed to coach yet till he gets his work visa. He probably will still not have it for our game thankfully. Last thing we need is a crappy team getting a morale boost with a legend in the locker room.Well, we get the Wayne Rooney circus this Saturday...maybe.
He was not in DC yet for yesterday's match.
It's not even the equilivant of the USL. It is the top amatuer league in the country (there are even a few top-notch high school players on the team).The women's team Aurora are headed to the championship, in their league.
This team is not an equivalent to the Loons, as like the Lynx are for the Twolves. It is aparantly not even (fully?) professional players, and a fairly low level league.
Wonder if this success, and if the fans have been showing up, will prompt the owners to consider asking to upgrade into one of the women's professional leagues?
The NWSL isn't a joke. They get good ratings and good attendance.I think the Aurora is - in part - an attempt to show that the Twin Cities market will support Women's Soccer.
in competitive terms, the Aurora are equivalent to the Northwoods League for baseball. teams include a mix of High School and college players.
to land a NWSL team would require a much larger investment. the NWSL has raised its salary cap and salary floor in recent years. I believe the smallest venue in the league seats about 7,000 - most of the teams play in larger facilities. Several of the teams have ties to MLS teams in the same market.
