Just sayin'. Make a plan to catch a match some time.

 

 

The supporters group is free to join and has a free tailgate with tons of beer and awesome BBQ.  It’s a fun time for local footy.  I’d gladly meet up as well!!!

How many of those responding on this subject, have attended one or multiple women's soccer games @ Nebraska?  Just wondering.

 

I haven't.  I actually didn't like soccer while in college.  It wasn't until I was forced to watch a World Cup match after graduating that I started to appreciate the game and quickly fell in love with it. 

 

I did try to take my daughter back to watch the Husker women play, but she was never interested and I wasn't going to force her.  She is just now old enough to start enjoying going to live sporting events (with a little bit of concession stand bribery) but alas we don't live in Nebraska anymore.

How timely!

 

Saw they announced the USL will have a lower-tier women's soccer league. This is great! More opportunities for young athletes to have a chance to make a career in a sport they love.

Yeah!!!  We had a bad loss a few weeks ago but other than that every game has produced points.  Having two games in hand isn’t ideal, but that’s life.  Haha

Top of the table with two games in hand is bonus. A possible 6 more points and even if you lose both and go even in number of games played, you’re still on top of the table.

Haha, yup.  This is what happens when you watch the euros with a few pints in you.  Thanks for the correction boys.  :)

Yeah, as I mentioned below. I screwed up, euros and beers don’t help.  Haha

This is great news for USL in my opinion.  Getting rid of the worthless "MLS2" teams should make the USL better and more competitive across the board.

 

Not a fan of MLS starting up their own minor league system though.

"Consisting of 20 MLS clubs along with the potential for independently owned teams for the inaugural season in 2022,"

 

Maybe I am reading too much into the bolded line, but I interpret that to mean this new league will be a competitor with USL rather than solely being a home for the MLS2 teams to play.  If it was strictly a minor league to send the extended roster players from MLS, then I do think it would be good for USL.  But that's not how I read the press release.

The way I read into it, MLS is looking to have more control over the development path to the MLS. So they want to have control over the development league of their choice.

 

To me, Miami, New England, and Toronto have no business playing against Union Omaha level of competition and should be positioned as a stepping stone into the MLS/a place to let players recover after an injury and get back to the MLS. I'm sure MLS isn't much of a fan of this either.

 

I imagine in a perfect world, MLS teams would want a dedicated U18 league and a league just below MLS to develop their farm system.

I’m regards to the new MLS league it looks like all of the MLS reserve teams will be members.  It will be on the same year as USL 1.
