Tonight West Ham United plays the Major League Soccer All-Star Team in Toronto, Canada. The match will be shown live on ESPN and ESPN360.com beginning at 7pm ET.
I’m intrigued by this match but it’s hard to get excited. West Ham is one of the most vanilla football clubs in the Premier League. The club has few players that spark a lot of emotion other than Dean Ashton. Then there’s boring old manager Alan Curbishley. And lastly, you have to wonder how different everything may have been if the original choice for the opposition was selected instead of West Ham: Liverpool.
Still, the passionate Toronto fans should make the atmosphere better than previous MLS All-Star games. And it’ll be fun to see the increased police presence surrounding the Hammers fans.
Let’s hope that both teams come out with a commitment to win this one. Keeping my fingers crossed, I’m hoping this will be an entertaining game to watch. We’ll see.
