Major League Soccer 2016

With Drogba possibly here for the full year, now it's the time for the Impact to win the MLS Cup.

-Ciman resigned until 2018
-Cabrera signed (not on loan anymore)
-Porter healthy this season (hopefully)
-Acquired Harry Shipp from Chicago for creativity at midfield

Only question mark I have is Venegas. If he can deliver, I have no doubt we will be a VERY serious contender.

Haven't seen any games but apparently Shipp has looked good. And he's young too.

The Montreal Impact was the 2nd MLS team to beat a Mexican one in a 2 legged series.
Just look at this year, 4 matchups, 4 losses for US teams. What we did last year was incredible.

Yeah last year was pretty crazy with the champions league and Drogbas arrival.

Unfortunately Drogba looks like he'll miss the first game in Vancouver. I honestly don't know how his knees will last the whole season.

Just an FYI the match between Canada and Mexico at BC Place has sold over 40 thousand tickets. Now the entire stadium's tickets are on sale.

Impact turned down a 5$ million transfer offer for Piatti in the off season and tonight showed why once again (not that I needed confirmation)!

2 goals and 1 assist and an early goal of the year candidate for our designated player.

3-2 win for the Impact in Vancouver without Drogba. We are going to score A LOT of goals this season.

MLS decided to put a great title... DESTROYS Vancouver Whitecaps' defense.

Vancouvers support for the national team puts Toronto to shame, BC deserves to get all future national team matches at this rate, mad props to them!!

What a game by the Impact!

3 more goals and a clean sheet in front of 27,545 fans at the big O.

Ignacio Piatti with his 3rd goal already. Just wait until Drogba comes.

That end was a soccer clinic by the Impact rivaling big European clubs. 30 passes in a row, 100% possession ending with AJH's goal.

Take it easy there nicko lol.

That said, we possibly have the best one-two punch in the entire league with Drogba-Piatti.

We're not talking about Real Madrid or Barcelona here. Let's say some mid sized Italian or French club.

Ahem, ahem, Giovinco-Altidore (hands down the most productive offensive partnership last year).

Drogba is so old hes not even playing any matches on turf, including the first bunch of games this year. Giovinco has no equal in this league.

That's why I said "possibly".

And Drogba at 50 is better than half this league.

I've always found Altidore lazy. Complete waste of a DP spot. Thankfully, Giovinco makes up for the rest of the team.

I just caught some highlights... Does the artificial turf field make much difference? Did the ball seem to be more "bouncy" than on natural turf? Does anyone ever hear any commentary from the players about it

Artificial turf definitely makes a difference. Some top stars refuse to play on it since they get noticeably more injuries and inflamation (if they've had injuries in the past), not including minor injuries like skin burns and bruising. Even stars whove played for years in this league have refused all turf matches. The ball is more bouncy too which effects the way some players play.
