    1. Fly
      I read on here earlier that you have switched sides and now a proud LFC. How could you let that happen. Just when City were hitting their stride. :)

      1. I dont know man. I guess since im anti-united i must be a liverpool fan, since they are the only club whose fans dont like manure as their second team. 😀

  1. Bradley Wright-Philips came thru the MCFC system. Remember him as a good guy and the lesser talented brother of not-so-talented-in-his-own-right Shaun.

    He bounced around on loan with lower division clubs, finally signing somewhere else permanently but never seemed to make it anywhere he went.

    Now hes a star in the MLS. Sorry but that just shows how pathetic it is.

    1. I laugh when someone looks hysterically foolish. Might wanna catch an MLS game every so often before you make a statement like that.

      1. I simply stated that the fact that BWP is one of the best players in the league shows how bad it is. He is obviously one of the best players in the league. But he is not that good.

        -Coming from a guy who has known him long before he came to mls.

  2. 1.That was an awful delivery of the national anthem. It was painful to listen.
    2. Put real grass already. This is a health hazard playing there.
    3.On a separate note, how shockingly awful is Scottish football? They managed to lose by an aggregate of 6:1 to Legia Warsaw in a Champions League qualifier. The Scotish league, with or without Rangers, is surely out of the top 20 leagues in Europe alone. The situation is hopeless.

  3. I heard Adrian Healey mentioned that a Bayern Munich as an “international” player instead of an “national” player. No forum outrage? If a FOX soccer announcer would’ve said that (preferably Gus Johnson), you guys on this page would be complaining until the cows come home.

    Ahh I see how you guys are really bias towards announcers and networks.

  4. Yedlin needs to go to England or Europe and play to get better. If he stays in mls he will regress. Whatever team he might get traded to he needs to play or get loaned to side where he can get regular playing time.

    1. Hey thats my word!

      But totally agree hes on something if he thinks that. I feel MLS with all its policies that are completely about making money (they really couldnt care less about developing talent) hurts the national team.

    2. I agree. “If you don’t support your domestic league, then I don’t consider you an American soccer fan.”

      Absolutely ridiculous.

      It’s as if he’s on the payroll of MLS.

      What about the soccer fans who support their local NASL or USL-PRO team but don’t watch MLS? What about USMNT soccer fans who watch other leagues but don’t watch MLS? They’re not American soccer fans?

      It’s just as bad as calling someone a “Euro Snob.” Both “Euro Snob” and saying someone isn’t an American soccer fan are not going to entice or win over fans to watch MLS. If anything, it’ll drive them away.

  5. What good is it having a sideline reporter if she’s not going to tell us what Guardiola said to Porter?

  6. Nice showing by MLS. It was a fun game to watch as they played with flair despite having barely played together. Nice for Donovan to get a game winner against his former team and show the world what he could have done off the bench. Sour grapes by Pep after one, maybe two poor tackles. I don’t get playing players straight off the plane from vacation and asking the other team to back off.

    1. What does him scoring a meaningless goal in an exhibition have to do with “showing the world what he could have done off the bench”?
      A few years ago United beat the MLS all stars and thrashed them. Tom Cleverley was great that day and look at him now?
      Landon couldn’t have played for a side like Bayern. He isn’t good enough and was never good enough to even make the Bayern bench.
      If he was then he wouldn’t have spent his whole career beating up on MLS teams with the odd loan to Europe.
