It was expected to be up and running by 2018 but it looks as though it'll be 2019 that we see his side play as they can't find a concrete site to build their stadium. A plot of land has been purchased by Beckham's group but they've not been able to get the ball rolling on that side of things. 

Los Angeles FC (LAFC) have leap-frogged Beckham's Miami project in terms of joining the MLS and are expected to enter next season.

Jeez. Minnesota's first game in the MLS didn't quite go to plan as they suffered a 5-1 defeat to the Portland Timbers. A 14th minute free-kick from Lawrence Olum started proceedings with Diego Valieri doubling the lead two minutes into the second half. Things looked to be looking up for the new expansion team through Ramirez who pulled one back with ten minutes to go but it was all to be for nothing. Portland added the extras in the final ten minutes (including a brace from Fanendo Adi in the 91st and 93rd minutes) to put United to the sword. 

Portland go to the top of the league as the only team to play with Minnesota given a harsh reality check of what life in the MLS is like.

Excited for this for the first time in my life. Wife and I got season tickets to Atlanta United, with the first game being Sunday afternoon against New York RB.

Tough loss at 2-1 against the Red Bulls last night. Absolutely dominated for the first 70 minutes, but didn't put away enough chances and gave up 2 awful chances, that the NY RB took advantage of. 

Attendance for the game was over 55,000 people!

Great to have the MLS in Atlanta - Here are some pics -

Fantastic post that Ubuntu, thanks for posting the scores and table too (it'll make the MLS a lot easier to follow for us English).

A 2-1 loss isnt too shabby considering what happened with Minnesota, you'll be winning in no time! :D

Surprised to see defending champions Seattle lose at Houston, I didn't see that coming!

Cheers - Yeah my wife and I have season tickets so I'm going to have to pay more attention to the MLS.

Atlanta's owner is Arthur Blank (co-found of Home Depot, owner of the Atlanta Falcons), so he spent a pretty penny with this squad and people are suggesting that this may be a playoff team (yes, once the season is over, we do playoffs). 

We are young and should have gotten something more out of last night. Two missed chances on clear break aways is what did us in, and we let NYRB stay in the game.

Next Up for us is Minnesota so this weekend should be a good one!

A lot of reports coming from Atlanta about last night's scene. Here is a great photo to depict just how big it was -

Another win for the Rapids hopefully! Is there any news on when Tim Howard is likely to return?

Hoping Atlanta get off to winning ways against Minnesota too who they should have a good chance against.

Haven't heard any updates about Tim. I'm waiting for Brad Guzan to come to us as our Keeper was one of the weak spots in the loss against RB.

Minnesota are having a nightmare start to MLS, a 5-1 whipping in their first game and they're now 1-0 down inside 2 minutes of the Atlanta game.

To be fair, found out they had an MLS team in August of last year, we found out 2 years ago. We paid a lot of money for players, Minnesota was late to game. 

I predict them to have just a nightmare year.

Wow - They are have to take a stoppage timeout so that they can clear the lines since the snow is coming down so quickly. 

This could be a long game.

Minnesota United is absolutely dreadful today, what a shitty for them to show their fans their team.
