    The 2016 MLS season starts soon.

    The MLS draft was held a few weeks ago and was fairly White-friendly, about 75% I believe. The league is also expanding with about four new teams or so over the next couple of years. Hopefully, this will translate into a more palatable league, especially considering the darkening of the European leagues, especially in England.

    Also, it looks like China's Super League's are becoming a big-time player by throwing big money at players from Europe and even America. They lured the 31-year old forward, Obafemi Martins, away from the Seattle Sounders with a big contract which opened the door for 21-year-old forward, Jordan Morris, a recent Stanford great and current USMNT member, who amazingly turned down an opportunity to play in the Bundesliga to play for Seattle in the MLS.

    the chinese league buys bigger players than before but they are still flops or africans
    since the chinese like white players the most, especially white players from EPL and germany right now, it looks like they still can't buy the players they would like to

    Just checked out the Colorado Rapid's 2016 starters and was pleasantly surprised.

    I think they've started around five Whites the last few years, but it looks like a different team this year. Management made quite a few transfers and it looks like nine this year...if it's OK to count an Albanian as "White" ;). If not, then eight. A tonic to counter the local NFL team.

    Great thread! :)

    The Colorado Rapids have usually been a very white-friendly team. They lost perennial mainstay Drew Moor to the first-ever round of MLS free agency. Moor is a talented everyman who will fare well in Toronto. Colorado still features one of the best players in the entire league, Dillon Powers. I hope Colorado assembles a supporting cast that can finally do him justice. He is one of the most prominent young white players that USMNT coach Klinsmann refuses to call up to camp. Also he absolutely blasts free kicks onto goal. I would pay to watch this guy play.

    I share New York (Newark, NJ) Red Bulls season tix with my father: between my mom and my girlfriend we are usually tuned in.

    I caught an A-League game in Sydney this season and can return with the report that it is well below American standards.

    Teenager fullback Alex Gersbach moved to the Norwegian league this past month, so that is the end of my scouting report.

    The MLS had a shitty 2015 year, relatively speaking, from a CF perspective. The four teams in the semi-final playoffs all started majority non-white rosters. It seemed unusual but of course we haven't tracked that here. DC United is usually full of whites and presenting-hispanics thanks to promising American coach Ben Olsen. Vancouver, Portland, and Houston are consistently depots for basketball run-off. Montreal looks good as their opponent. Columbus, Ohio was historically white-friendly but reverted somewhat to multiculturalism and just won/lost the big cup.

    Of course, I prefer a white poacher tapping home easy goals if they are there for the taking. MLS doesn't have a lot of them and the goal-scoring skew breaks toward Africans for some imaginary rationale. MLS still has a solid proportion of white machinists who defy the odds and make things tick.

    Harrison Shipp was traded from Chicago to Montreal for cap space. Shipp is a commanding presence and an aspiring USMNT slot-holder. MLS is not NFL where you must release all your veteran contracts. This was a stupid move by Chicago and their die-hard fans hate them for it already.

    Obafemi Martins moved to China for ten million dollars fee. Repeat that sentence and let it sink in for a bit.

    Seattle Sounders make out like bandits despite MLS not directly rewarding clubs for sales; prodigy Jordan Morris gets pumped up into the rotation with Dempsey and a white hispanic I can't remember who may be called "nelson valdez" (which would be hilarious).

    Rookie Seattle Sounders Forward, Jordan Morris, coming on strong the past several weeks. He's at 12 goals for the season right now, which is 2nd all-time for rookies. He also now holds the rookie record for six game-winning goals and has tied the rookie record of scoring at least one goal in 4 consecutive games.

    He got his 11th and 12th goals today against the LA Galaxy in a 4-2 win for Seattle. The first highlight showcases his speed with the ball and the second one his footwork. He scored the first goal with his right foot and the second one with his left.
