SBI Live Q&A set for 1pm today

It's that time again. Time to talk soccer in the latest SBI Live Q&A.

With MLS Cup in the rearview mirror, trades galore being made and the expansion draft looming, it's the perfect time to have a Q&A.

Check in this afternoon at 1pm and submit your soccer questions for me to answer and discuss.

See you at 1pm.


  1. Something fishy to me about saying that women’s pro soccer can’t make it in the US. The top WUSA teams averaged more than San Jose, Dallas, or KC did this season. So how many MLS teams actually make money besides the obvious ones like Galaxy, Seattle, Toronto? And why did the stadium look half empty at the MLS Final if Toronto is such a self-proclaimed soccer city? Is it because of the product? I think most MLS teams operate at a loss. And how much money has the USSF and its marketing arm, Soccer United Marketing given to prop up MLS over the years?

    I would say that the USSF doesn’t want to invest money in women’s soccer development in the US. If they did, they’d save WPS among other things like adding a residency program for U17 women and creating a development pyramid for youth and grassroots women’s development. If they don’t want to save it then fine, but that shouldn’t be the reason to just dismiss it as not being a good product whatsoever.

  2. He’s 17 yrs OLD (DoB 2/26/93)…wouldn’t expect him to be near the Senior Squad. As it is he’s the youngest player in the Reserve side….still has 2 yrs of eligability to the U-19 team, but Bayern thinks enough of him to have him in the Reserve Squad.

  3. Hey Ives,

    Isn’t it clever when I talk about myself in the third person and it’s like I am actually asking you a question about stuff??

  4. Hey Ives,

    You could argue Dax McCartey was the best player on the pitch Sunday – so I am sure there must be a good reason why Dallas left him unprotected for the expansion draft. Please share.

  5. I think they’ll do that once every team in the league has complete control of their stadium situation. Personally, I’d like it to be a single game with the highest seed hosting.

  6. Figuratively and literally. I’m sorry that it happened, but a small party of me is glad that we have one less competitor to worry about.

  7. What is the deal with Rogelio Funes Mori? He was the Sueno winner, he joined FCD’s youth system and now Benfica wants to pay $11 million to River for him? Only 19 years old. could he play for USA? why didn’t MLS keep him?

  8. Hey Ives – do you know anything about Fabian Hurzeler? Yanks Abroad is quoting Rongen saying that he has committed to the US. Sounds like a big win for our youth!
