Barca reconsidering MLS bid

Not a good couple days for the Catalan club.

They lost at home to the worst team in La Liga, Espanyol, AT HOME and now it appears as though the struggling economy is affecting their hopes at branching out to Major League Soccer.
In response, [club CEO Joan] Oliver said the matter was “very delicate and we are evaluating if the situation allows for the model planned to be implemented in Miami or not.” He added that Barcelona could postpone its bid and try to obtain a team when “there was not financial risk to the club.”
Well despite the horrible loss, the team is still seven points up in the league standings.

So that's good news, hopefully the MLS expansion news will turn positive also...
