Yeah, something like that bizarro team name. Or, Red Bull New Jersey. Or, Chivas Regal TBD.
Red Bull New Jersey makes senses. Chivas USA is terrible, that club will be sold and rebranded.

Real Salt Lake is just a truly AWFUL name. Some of these "Euro/South America" Club names are just awkward and out of place here. Toronto FC-Boring, Seattle Sounders FC-Take the FC off and it's perfect, FC Dallas-BORING!. Sporting KC-Hated it at first bit it's grown on me.

I still say Philly should have gone for Philadelphia Athletic, if the Oakland A's don't hold the copyrights or whatever. "The Union" sounds like a political action committee (come to think of it, so does "Sons of Ben" ) .

FC_____ is boring, but ignorable. Just refer to those teams as Toronto, Dallas, etc. And what's with Montreal? Impact sounds like a lame 90's MLS 1.0 name, like Burn, Wiz, Metro Stars, Clash. And it's not French-sounding. Montreal teams should always have French names so that Chris Berman can do a cringe inducing accent. Olympique de Montréal, s'il vous plaît.

Montreal Expos?

NYC FC should just be called The Yankees since they are part owners...

Manchester City is "Man Citeh" so NYC would be... "Nu Yawk Sitee?" Living For The Citaaay...?

What happens if they build a stadium in Brooklyn, do they have to change their name to Borough? Queens Borough sounds even more like a EPL ripoff, but still New York-ish. Build it next to the bridge.

They should either be called the Yankees and wear pinstripes, or if they build in Manhattan, they should call them Manhattan City. But mainly I hope they stop signing overrated, geriatric English midfielders.
