More On The Phoenix Monsoon
As promised, an interview with Phoenix Monsoon point man Stu Starkey, wherein he touches on their plans to play in 2011 in a “Western Soccer Conference” along with at least three and hopefully five to seven other teams in California and Arizona, a potential home venue and the long-term goals for the team.
- The Phoenix Greyhound Park location seems to be a really good one. Just off downtown, right next to the airport, there’s a light rail stop there, loads of parking, no NIMBY issues. I’d have to be convinced that you wouldn’t be too far from the action (not to mention hermetically sealed) to make it worthwhile to go at all.
- I hope they’re able to pull together more than four teams for this Western Soccer Conference in 2011. Nobody will take it seriously – even as a prelude to bigger and better things – with only four or five teams.
- It’ll be interesting to see who ultimately gets the upper hand – this group or the other, which plans to take the field in 2012.
