He had 24 goals and 22 assists in 138 appearances with Zenit after 27 goals and eight assists with River Plate.

I’m ready for this season too. I split season tickets last year to Atlanta United with a fellow frog Alum and her Fiancée and I didn’t get to go to a single game. I live walking distance to Mercedes Benz Stadium and can see it from my patio. We have the biggest crowds and best fans and I imagine Austin will be super passionate as well. Fun times ahead!

I'm one of the '17's and go to every home match.

Vamos 5 Stripes!!!!!

MLS picks back up this Saturday with Dallas in 2nd and Austin in 4th. Meanwhile Houston with a huge signing to make a push. Texas soccer looking strong and exciting. Finally went to an Austin match (v Orlando) and had a blast.

Is Apple TV's soccer deal a first step in changing how we watch (and pay for) sports?​

You can see good and bad in the deal with Major League Soccer — and a lot that we simply don't know yet. There are certainly some things to watch out for, however.

Tuesday's announcement of a 10-year deal between Apple TV and Major League Soccer — worth at least $2.5 billion, per reports — felt historic on a number of levels.

Set to start next year and run through 2032, the agreement will make every MLS game available through the Apple TV app, with no blackout restrictions, for a yet-to-be-announced fee.

We've seen leagues dabble in sub-packages of games on streaming devices — Amazon streams Thursday NFL games and Apple TV has some MLB rights, for example — this MLS deal is the first to take a major sport and move it entirely onto a streaming platform. I talked about the revolutionary nature of this on Wednesday's Daily Delivery podcast.

Whoa is this legit? That’s a decent pickup one would think.

Couldn’t find this thread the other day, thanks for popping it back up.

I'm sure this will lead to some Apple TV subs that don't already exist, but I won't be one of them. I've got enough streaming services. I love soccer, but I've refused to bite on Peacock and I won't bite on Apple TV. I don't like this move for myself, but it's great for the league.
