I guess these are all franchises.

How many of them move their team to another City/State in general terms?

I've not heard of that happening in football WW - the second division clubs usually just go bust if they aren't successful and the players are dispersed in some sort of draft I should imagine.

There was one MLS side recently, Chivas USA, in Los Angeles, who ceased operations. MLS purchased the franchise and will sell (award) it at some point in the future. There's a new team Los Angeles FC, scheduled to begin play in 2018 but "they are not a continuation of Chivas"

San Jose Earthquakes moved to Houston, but a couple of years later a new San Jose Earthquakes started with new players and staff but allowed to retain the history of the old club.

We got Guzan from Chivas didn't we?

They need Wenger or Mourinho in charge to do all the bleating.

USA striker Alex Morgan and two players from MLS team Orlando City were escorted out of Disney's Epcot Centre by police because they were "impaired and verbally aggressive" in a pub.

Apparently she was with Giles Barnes. I remember him being very good on Football Manager about 10 years ago.

He was a really good player whose career was wrecked by injuries.

In the NWSL semi-final today Chicago lost away to North Carolina. The winning  goals was scored by Irish international Denise O'Sullivan. It weas a great match - Chicago failed to take their chances.

Have been watching the NWSL matchers on Sunday afternoons for awhile now - excellent stuff.

USA failure to qualify for WC18 has reawakened the promotion/relegation debate at the league level.
