    I agree whole-heartedly with you, Dan, and this MCFC-backed franchise in MLS seems to be asking for trouble. Red Bulls have a fancy stadium and had Henry, yet your Chivas USA is perfectly apropos. What’s to stop MCFC from making NYCFC their reserve/retirement/rehab franchise?That’s setting aside the viability of expansion in the first place. Lampard is a big name, and an incredible player, but the team needs to be great on its own merits, not as a place for superstars to have their swan songs as they edge towards retirement. Juninho has been as important to the Galaxy’s success as Beckham ever was. Fans want a quality product that is watchable, if not captivating. Lampard’s presence would give NYCFC a lot more credibility as a club than his absence. It’s bound to be an interesting few months.
