Anybody else hate the MLS?

Post by redrover365 » 15 Oct 2007, 03:34

Does anyone hate the MLS? The style of play is terrible, control is terrible, and there are no fans in the stands. What do you think?

Nope! Its football so i love it no matter what standard ill still watch football. I watched la galexy vs houyton (spelling?) and they played so great one touch football and plenty of fans watching.

The mls is a growing league so what do you expect ? Becks to go over and within a few weeks have players like jt, gerrard and kaka? In time who knows

Hopefully if players like them come over, then they will have more of an impact on American footall than Pele & Beckanbauer made when they played for the New York Cosmos.

There are plenty of orher great players on the MLS besides Becks like Jozy Altidore(look him up if you don't know who he is) that are also doing great things for the league.

It's still football. Maybe not at it's best but it is still the beautiful game.

Don't hate on the MLS.

Are you a troll on the forums mate? No fans? Every match I've seen they've filled their fair-share of seats, alot of matches seem to equal or bigger crowds than the A-League!!

Football is relatively new in terms of really getting off the ground in the US redrover, this is a step-up from your mindless drivel but no need to hate on the MLS... :wink:

Well to start off this guy's threads bug me.

But anyways, I am American, and I actually do not hate the MLS. Sure, I like watching the Premiership, La Liga, Serie A more, but I think the MLS is certainly growing and it's certainly not bad to watch.
On a different note everyone's pretty good with women when it comes to hookers... well except the sham-wow guy.

To tell you the truth i don't care about mls. all of the games that i have seen sucked monkey anal. Anyway they aren't as great as soccer in Europe in my opinion.

I really enjoy watching the MLS because it's so unpredictable. The attacking is decent and the defending isn't so decent. So it really makes for end to end stuff in alot of games. Alot of high scoring games.

Every year the attendance goes up all around the league. DC has excellent support and so do Toronto. And most teams have a decent little section of supporters that make alot of noise.

You have to remember that the MLS is still a very young league in a country where soccer is about the 4th or 5th most popular sport. So it does somewhat well considering the circumstances. Most of our best athletes don't go into soccer which makes a big difference. In most of Europe all the best athletes have soccer in their blood from birth and go into the sport.

Most aspects of the MLS improve each year a good amount. There are still many things that need improving still, but again, it's still a young league.
