Multiple head coaches repeatedly have said in a recent Sports Illustrated interview, that St. Louis would be the perfect place to bring the MLS.

"If the Rams leave, it's a perfect hole they've left for MLS," said Jesse Marsch, head coach for the New York Red Bulls.

Now that the Rams are leaving town, many fans would love to see the MLS invade the city of St. Louis.  It is unclear, however, if they were to add a team in St. Louis, where the league would play.

It has not stopped many MLS coaches from stating that St. Louis is their number one choice for a new MLS team.

Even Peter Vermes, head coach of Sporting Kansas City votes for St. Louis stating, "I think St. Louis would make for a great cross town rival for us."

So what do you think? With the Rams leaving town, would an MLS team be the perfect sport to fill the void?
