Farewell Sigi -- for the moment
So Sigi Schmid has gone the way of all coaches who don't win games, or don't win enough games, or don't win the important games ... coaches who, we are told, have lost the locker room, or who have run their course, while the club needs to take "another path," to move "to the next level," and so on and so forth and what have you.

"There's a reason you see the passion in this area: Soccer's in their blood now. It takes generations. You don't start liking soccer five years ago and all of a sudden have a passionate fan base. This has been developing for years."

-- Landon Donovan, who began his MLS career with the San Jose Earthquakes, on soccer support in San Jose. Levi's Stadium averaged almost 62,000 for four Copa Centenario games, while the area will host in the span of 48 hours the T&T MLS All-Star Game and Liverpool-AC Milan International Champions Cup match.
