I'm sure Lampard based his decision based on cudicinis signing
I don't think that player a big factor at all. Lampard has gone to several LA games while Becks was there and LA has made it known that they were interested in Lampard for like a year now, rumors were also heating up this past summer as well. I'd say Beckham has had the biggest influence in the signing by far and I'm glad Lampard is coming to the MLS.
RIP "Livestrong Sporting Park". Sport KC has parted way with Livestrong Foundation amid Lance Armstrong scandal.
It's probably the best thing for the club imo. Now they can sell the naming rights and actually make some $$ off of it. From what I remember Livestrong wasn't paying anything for the naming rights and SKC could have possibly been paying them not sure though.
It looks like Frank Lampard to LA Galaxy at the end of EPL season is reportedly a done deal. Galaxy's plan of signing Cudicini to lure Lampard seems to work.
Lampard and Juninho will be striking fear into the hearts of goalkeepers around the MLS with their set piece supremacy.
It's great to see more and more guys like Lampard, Di Vaio, and Nesta who are past their prime but still can play at a very high level join the MLS. Robbie Keane and Juninho (from the LA Galaxy) also just signed multi-year extensions.
It looks like Brek Shea from FC Dallas will be sold to Stoke City for $3.5 million.
TFC is keeping on fixing its roster, shipping fan favourite Joao Plata to Real Salt Lake for a second round pick in 2015 SuperDraft. Also, GM Kevin Payne hints some big salary players may be bought out, which is likely to be Eric Hassli.
I've never paid more than $20 for an FCD match and that includes regular season games vs Galaxy, Red Bull, and Seattle, friendlies against Inter Milan and Tigres, and US Open, CCL, and MLS playoff matchups.
