MLS Talk Podcast: Alexi Lalas

alexi lalas MLS Talk Podcast: Alexi Lalas

Eric Altshule sits down with a legend of American soccer, Alexi Lalas to discuss a myriad of different subjects. As always Lalas is very compelling and perhaps a tad bit controversial. A must listen for any American soccer fan.

    Am I the only one that kind of enjoys Alexi Lalas on TV?

  2. eplnfl says:

    No, I do enjoy him on tv. He has made the MLS broadcasts this season entertaining. However, you would guess he is not a popular guy in Chicago right now.

  3. dan says:

    yea if the mls is going to succeed they need to let alex do the mls stuff.
    CAN YOU HEAR ME ESPN THIS IS THE GUY YOU NEED TO LET DO THE MLS REPORTING. PUT HIM ON SPORTSCENTER TO DO MLS HIGHLIGHTS,

  4. Lars says:

    I like Alexi Lalas as a sports commentator. Does a damn fine job, and puts his brother to shame. His brother can take some lessons!

  5. dan says:

    I wonder if Brain McBride would be any good as a Commentator

  6. short passes says:

    Have to admit that in this interview Lalas came across as knowledgeable and level headed. Unfortunately as a broadcaster he is a constant reminder of the old, unimaginative style of US Soccer. His comments are too often based on an outlook that hasn’t grown since the days of Bob Gansler. He was willing to decimate the Galaxy payroll for one highly specialized player, not realizing that a great team needs ball skills at all positions.

    • Lars says:

      I think he was more forced into that by ownership than anything else.

      Beckham was a coup for the sports franchise, and MLS in terms of money. Nobody in management cared that the team was losing, as long as it was bringing in windfall profits. The fact that the team is doing well now says a lot about Arena’s abilities, and it will only serve to push profits more…

      Overall though, the team was less profitable when it was winning without Beckham than when it was losing with him, and that’s what the ownership cared about.

      You can’t blame Lalas for making that move when it was probably forced on him.

  7. Cale says:

    I’m still amazed that he’s the same Alexis Lalas from 15 years ago. He looks amazing.<3 Really handsome and I enjoy seeing on T.V. I love you Alexis.

  8. Jessenia says:

    Wow! Alexi Lalas looks really handsome! I guess I’m surprised to see him without the long hair and beard.

  9. Joe says:

    Alexis Lalas is an indivual that knows very little about the game of soccer. His comments are always critical towards players and coaches. on what experience does he base his comments? A failure of professional players that judges world class coaches and players. He probably needs to limit himself to announcing the score when the game is over. He’d probably screw that up too. Howard , according to him was the best goal keeper in the world. Just to follow up some of his comments.
