First off, I've recently moved to the Los Angeles area and am seeking a team to follow. I'm from the Bay Area and have attended a few San Jose Earthquakes' game, but they were located a little too far away from me to fully support them. Basically I only went to a few games that they would have at Oakland Coliseum. I've been a fan of the MLS for a few years, but never fully followed the league from beginning to end (nor had a team to follow). This season I hope to follow the league for an entire season. A key aspect to this is finding a team to support. With my move to LA, I decided that I am close enough to the HDC to actually make this happen. Not only will I be able to attend games (hopefully purchase season tickets), but also hope to go to viewing parties and follow away games on the tele. Now as everybody is aware, there are two teams in LA. LA Galaxy seems like too much of a bandwagon mentality for me to join. Now I don't mean there fans seem that way, it is just that they just won the MLS Cup and would be too easy for me to bandwagon on a winning side. They have some great players, but I simply don't think they are the right team for me. This leaves Chivas USA. I have done some research and like the mentality of the club and the supporter clubs. I do have a few questions about supporter clubs, etc. I have done some research and know that there are three supporter clubs for Chivas USA; Union Ultras, Black Army 1850, and Legion 1908. Now I've pretty much eliminated Legion 1908, because to my understanding they are more so supporters of Guadalajara and happen to live LA (please correct me if this is wrong). As for the others... Can anybody give a good pros and cons of both Union Ultras and Black Army 1850? Or at least a comparison of what each bring and kind of the general feel for the groups? I will most likely be going to these games by myself so would love a group that is welcoming, has fun tailgates, and makes the experience enjoyable. Not to mention a good internet forum to discuss things (although this forum may just do the trick for that). Sorry for the long post and any information or insight you may have would be fantastic!
