With what I'm reading, Charlotte looks good for the 30th bid, but that talks about expanding to 32 are ongoing.
Phoenix is the biggest media market without a team, and if we brought in the right player personnel, making sure to find talents in Latin America as well as Latinx players already here in the U.S.A., we'd sell some tickets. Grabbing a Mexican National Team player as a Designated Player spot would work wonders, as well. Don't force it to be something "All-American" (white) like in Columbus, make it the team of the Latin Americans, get some shine down in Mexico and Central America, it could be a really great strategy. Just don't price out too many with the cost of tickets.
When LFC are at their best, though, Firmino's still dropping just a little back into the midfield to boss the game as necessary. Just when you feel he hasn't had a huge impact, he'll leave you with an assist or a goal that reminds you that the guy drips with quality. I know Fabinho has been talking about wanting Mbappe. Could be wishing on a star, but I think he'd fit with Firminho just fine. 4-3-3 with Firminho just playing behind the front three of Mane-Mbappe-Salah, and they can help rotate for each other. Sorry if I'm going into lala land, it's just a dream. Bobby would be an instant 10 goals 10 assists guy and our front three would be even more potent.
And yes, they are having fun, though there is always an opening for a Salah-Mane kerfuffle, which I actually think they need. Keeps 'em competition going forward. The Matip-Gomez competition is great, too. I'm not religious, but watching the guys is like my version of church, whether it's the Reds on TV or Rising at Casino Arizona Field. The greatest of the lesser things!
