One Response to Greg Lalas on MLS International Signings

  1. Sams Army says:

    Since you are such a anglophile Kartik, you should recognize the impact players like Ryan Nelson, Shaun Bartlett and Stern John made in England. All three were developed by MLS and none fit the criteria you seem need to apply to international signings.
