    And we are back to the NY Cosmos era.

    I would prefer MLSs 20th team be the Cosmos Group, not the Wilpons. Problem is the latter has the land for a stadium. Ideally they would simply join forces. A true NYC team would do wonders for MLS. I really think we underestimate the postive impact from just having the Cosmos brand come alive again, even if they suck for the first few years. They will eventually not want to play second fiddle to RBNY--which assures that at the very least they will spend serious coin trying to get good players.
