Well, I'd like to see MLS win in the hope that it might show we have a glimpse of hope for our league, but this won't be a normal team and won't gel as well as West Ham will. So it's a tight call.

Best of luck to Kenny Cooper, the lone Dallas man in the line up. Good on ya mate! :)

Well since they switched the format from east vs. west to just one team vs. a Big club from another league the mls all stars have been doing amazing. The last three games ended like this:

2005: MLS all stars 4-1 Fulham

2006: MLS all stars 1-0 Chelsea

2007: MLS all stars 2-0 Celtic

I can actually see Mls allstars beating West ham 2-0 or maybe possibly
3-0. Im impressed with the team the Mls allstars have put out. It will be interesting how well Beckham plays against his old club.
I think Donovan will rip up West hams defence. West ham can be poor in defence from set-pieces, so I think overall West ham will lose.

whoa i find that hard to believe... that is pretty damn good, considering the all-star team is just put together...and the players dont have much experience of playing with each other vs. a team as good as chelsea/celtic that plays together all year long...
impressive, to say the least

Except the teams put out by top European clubs they play are never true competitors anyways. Plus, it's an all star game, it's meant to be a show.

i know nothing about MLS, but i was pretty sure Jozy Altidore who i have heard of was meant to be good, what position is he and why is he not in the XI

Please don't tell me you live in America. :x


Altidore moved to spain to play for Villareal. Otherwise, he'd most likely be playing.

I was almost going to go to this, but I decided to go to Independiente vs. TFC instead.

I hate Blanco, he just pisses me off so much, plus he looks like a fat ass, but he'll probably be back to América in a season so I'll hate him a little less.

Well then, West Ham vs. MLS.

If West Ham do put out a proper 11 they will probably pull off an easy win, but if they put out a half-assed squad then I could see the MLS pulling off an easier one. :)

Lads, this is West Ham we're talking about.

As much as I love them, we are a poor side. Saying that, the MLS isn't the most gifted league i've ever seen...
