    I call BS on their twitter numbers. Lots of Bot accounts following them. I suspect they bought a large portion of their followers. I mean, they even have more than the LA Galaxy... very suspect

    Why would you think it’s bullshit, they average like 45,000 a game numbers TFC can only dream about . If it was TFC reporting one million twitter followers then that would be suspect when TFC struggle to get 25000 in the stands.

    Who cares about Twitter numbers? I've followed lots of things and people I don't care about at all really on Twitter. It's one of the most meaningless things I hear people place importance on. Even some of their own supporters are making fun of how some of Atlanta fans seem to want some recognition (or a medal) for this "remarkable" achievement.

    Atlanta is the class of the league. TFC May have had there time in the SUN and the Galaxy are a great brand and LA is still LA but at the end of the day Atlanta is the STANDARD of MLS they donít have the history but they are the future of MLS when we consider investment, attendance, growth etc. Itís a shame they canít spend more because of cheap MLS owners

    I think US and Canada Soccer markets are fickle and the Atlanta bubble will burst. Flavour of the month, and let's face it, a plastic pitch, really! just an opinion

    In all seriousness, Atlanta prepared very well for their first few years. They did very good at finding personnel and with their fans. But they have made some serious mistakes within their squad building since and are now pretty much turning over their championship team. While they have Martinez, they will always have goals - he is the ultimate poacher. But they have problems building the cast around him.

    i think the TFC marketing has been brutal the last few years.all i see the odd email about getting more seats with really no incentive to do so.no give aways any more no events no real perks for the STH,
    and the camp coverage has been embarrassing per usual. iphone pics,never a stream of a game.i feel no no hype for the club so far.

    I agree that they have really backed off as well. Cost cutting or maybe they just think they don't need to add the perks anymore to sustain the season seat holder base. It was nice when they did those extras as it added value to your membership. Now we just have the tickets only for the most part with no other perks or benefits but in the end that is all we are here for. Since they are only giving us the game day tickets for our money the team better bring it on game day. Not even my 2 for 1 pizza coupons this year for the stadium....booooo!

    As far as Atlanta goes, they did well out of the gate so you have to give them that but could they have survived the lean years that we went through? They keep doing fairly well and have never had a stinker season. Not that I wish anything on anyone but would be interesting to see if they could still have all those stats to brag about without too many wins in a season and missing the playoffs. Only then would you see how dedicated a fan base you have. We have been there and been tested so we know how it goes.

    Interesting that they are not having people sign for it. Sort of taking a chance there. Lots of people will still likely be heading to the depot to pick up their package if they live in apartments because of you are not home where do they leave it?

    Cinci coach suspended.

    Used the N word.

    Players Union going hard on this one - although reports were he quoted lyrics in a song, also reports he said stuff about slavery being a good thing. We won't know the full story but the players had a lawyer present this morning so this is serious.

    When you think about a bad franchise start, alongside FUs to a great fan base, TFC were the gold standard.

    But this Cinci grease fire clearly has early TFC beat.

    Somewhere Mo is raising a pint.

    Nick Hagglund is probably thinking "now why did I think that coming home was better than playing in Toronto?"

    I was hoping he would be one of the core players given the amount of experience TFC has given him. What made him go low on the depth chart?

    I agree......zero fan fare. Tragedy tbh. I went to Florida in the past 2 occasions to watch preseason pre-Gio days...and a group of were so hyped on the potential signings, etc etc etc. Becoming a bit like the leafs where they are slowly losing touch with fan base.

    now.....my tix went from $200....to $400....then back down to $200 when everyone was cancelling tix on mass....now back up to $450. FO told me my tix are undervalued and they have been raising the light greys for years now. Zero perks.

    I think Nick enjoys being home with his parents and sister near by and appreciated being close in the lead up to his sisters wedding. He was a groomsman in the wedding and his wife was maid of honour. It would have been harder if was on TFC as they played in Vancouver the night before the wedding in Cincinnati.

    If Cheech is such a big signing, you'd think they'd (They being MLS) bang a stream up on youtube or twitter or something....
