First game for Karol Swiderski in the MLS with Charlotte FC in a game that broke the MLS attendance record with 74,479 attending the game. For the record Charlotte FC - Galaxy LA  0:1.

LA Galaxy*

Scale's a whole different monster when you consider that they play in the Panthers' stadium. I thought they had attendance capped for MLS (wiki says 38k), but the founding of a new team is as good a reason as any to open the floodgates. I'm still cheesed that NE's stadium caps at 20k for Revs games.

MLS is a business, just like every other professional sport in the US and Canada as opposed to Greek Superleague, which is a money laundering operation. The concept of filling a stadium to capacity in Greece is unattainable dream these days.

MLS is a strange one. In fact North American sports in general are rather foreign to me. No relegation - what?!

The part that gets me is how teams up and move to another city.  Like wtf ha ha.  Try that in Europe and cities would be rioting.  But the bizarre thing is it seems to work.  Sure we're gonna move PAOK from Salonika to Athens and fans will come.  And yet, they do.  Talk about strange.  I suppose that's what happens in a nation that refuses to go convert to the metric system.

Mainly it's because these aren't 'clubs' as we know them, they are franchises with little to no soul. What I find weird is our top league which is basically the same setup [manufactured franchises] but if anyone tried to move a club there would be hell to pay.

I think it's possible but it would take a lot of changes. Changes which nobody wants to make.

Maybe COVID and couldn't travel, finished isolation though and could play.

It was a fake injury so he would not have to travel to Europe for the Poland games. Something PAOK should have done with Biseswar and his trip to Thailand.

Which makes no sense - players can refuse a call-up if they feel like it. If they're getting fake doctor's notes, surely the risk of bad blood is higher than the reward of not having to sit in a first-class seat for a few hours?
