Around MLS: MLS Destined for Detroit? Drogba’s Return

MLS to Detroit?

With all the talk of MLS expansion as of late, Detroit was a city mentioned by Don Garber in a recent visit to Sacramento, California. The current supporters of Detroit City Football Club didn’t seem to take that news too well, as you can see in this story from mlive.com

Well, it looks like that development may come sooner than anyone thought. On Tuesday, Major League Soccer announced that Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert are forming an investment group to bring MLS to Detroit. The group will meet with Don Garber in Detroit on Wednesday.

Time to Panic in Seattle?

The Seattle Sounders have made the playoffs every year since joining the league in 2009. This season, that streak seems to be in danger. Seven games in, Seattle has accrued just seven points and sits second-to-last in the Western Conference table. 

Sounders Head Coach Sigi Schmid doesn’t think it’s time to push the panic but just yet. "The important thing for us is not to panic at this stage," he said. "We've gotten seven points in our last four games. And if we can continue to get seven points from every four games here on out, we'll be in the playoffs."

Drogba Could Play Again Midweek

It looks like Didier Drogba is back in the picture for the Montreal Impact. After missing a handful of early season games to avoid playing on artificial surfaces, it seems like Drogba is prepared to make a short turnaround from his first 90 minute performance of the year. He has made the trip to New York for Wednesday night’s matchup with NYCFC.
