    I know we can't but I wish we'd stop this shite. Pissing about all over the world and playing in made up tournaments, where games are taken more seriously than they should be. I'd rather a few weeks of solid pre-season training with a few matches here and there, played not too far away.

    I was there too. The chanting pre and post match even after the loss was amazing. They were singing there for hours!

    Avoid the LA leg at all costs. Its a complete shitshow. Go to Salt Lake City or another smaller city instead. Always the best.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't José hate going abroad on pre season tours? He prefers to stay in the country of said team?

    I'm not so sure about that, but he was not happy with the shit show in Asia last summer and it was reported at the time that he wanted to go to the US next summer.

    You can't blame him for being unhappy last summer. That was horrendously bad! Our recent tours in the US always seem to go well so I can see why José would opt for there.

    100%. Since the teams are greedy, it will likely be in the rose bowl and that place is a shitshow for traffic and parking. The problem with SLC, it will likely be a midweek game and its SLC. Santa Clara is a great stadium and kind of accessible, the only problem is tickets prices are outrageous. I remember in 2015, I got to see them play in Seattle and San Jose for the same price in Santa Clara.

    Yeah the RoseBowl was a complete disaster last time. I paid for VIP and didn't get very close to the players. Previously in Kansas City around 2010, I was directly pitchside during a training match.

    Im guessing we play LA galaxy in LA? The derby in DC (or Santa Clara)?

    Who would be the other sides we play? Any big name european teams or just Chivas/Real Salt Lake etc.?

    I guess they will announce it at a later date. Still cant forget when we played madrid in Michigan and marca had to photoshop the stadium fans white because in reality it was all red :lol:. Pathetic.

    We are the biggest club in the world. By far.

    Rather it be at the Coliseum than the Rose Bowl.

    My guesses with the other confirmed teams making us tours:
    real salt lake- salt lake
    Real Madrid- Levi's stadium
    Barca- rose bowl
    Juve- D.C.
    City- NYC

    Spurs will also be in the US.

    Wonder if our preseason would be thrown into chaos with our 3rd round Europa qualifier taking place in mid-late July if we fail to get into the Champion's League.

    Hell yeah. I'll be at DC and NYC (if those are confirmed and on weekends) and might even fly down to Santa Clara... good times!

    Years ago, now @Paz . I can scarcely remember, although that's because I got super high. Was Chris Smalling's very first game for the club, though. July 2010, according to Google.

    No worries. It was great fun. I yelled really loudly at John O'Shea to give us a wave and am pretty sure I saw Stacey Giggs sitting a few feet away.

    As a resident of NY State I can tell you NYC is not the biggest in the world.

    Biggest in the US but then again there are better cities for support of the game. Plus with City's alignment with the Yankees and the MLS team why do anything to help them?

    Fingers crossed.

    Or at least somewhere within a reasonable driving distance.

    I am in the Washington DC area so it's great for me but I would prefer that they stick to one part of America/Canada. Stay in the northeast, do NY, Boston, Montreal, Toronto and keep the traveling light (or do Portland, Seattle, Vancouver etc...).

    Baltimore would have been better. Fedex field is a toilet. Last saw them at Lincoln a few years ago. That's a great venue.

    I'm a Ravens season ticket holder, could not agree more on the difference between the 2 stadiums and the traffic to and from is awful. At least I can get to the game though, I'll take it.
