i agree the standard is poor but i dont think the stands are empty
ive seen alot of games where the grounds are pretty full and its popularity is growing
you cant give examples of pre season results to show how good the league is either

ya but nowadays players like becks, denilson, blanco, and angel, and maybe even veron if the rumors are true have the chance to do something that pele, beckenbauer, and best didn't make football a BIG sport over here in Canada and America

Im not gonna disagree that the mls inst as good as the la liga but most countries in the americas cant fill there stadiums and it lacks in the level of play. also just give it time, as soccer becomes more popular in the US then the MLS would get better

I have no reason for dislikeing the MLS. I've heard that it's level is the equivilent of the English conference but with a lot more athleticly based players. Ofcourse like the previous guy said it isn't as strong as la liga or serie A or the EPM. But the league will get better because of increased popularity. I think if it is attrating the population of America to football then it can't be that bad! :D

I havent watched the MLS, but when I watch American athletes I can see that they are strong and fast. So its the players technique what probably lacks in the MLS.

No one said they were good! :lol:

No, they can't compete with the British at all though.

Some MLS teams could easily compete with Championship teams and even some bottom of the table EPL teams. They could also compete with Scottish teams as well. So "British" is too loose a term.

Most people pass judgement on the MLS with only watching one or two games. They just assume it's American soccer so it must be crap.

It's definitely not on par with the top leagues such as La liga, the EPL, Serie A, etc. But the MLS is on par with most other leagues around the world concerning the actual competetion.

Yeah, i think most MLS teams could "hold their own" against Rangers or possibly Celtic.

I didnt really see any proper jockeying on him by any of the celtic players they rushed carelessly and he just side stepped.........great awareness on his part though........poor defence on Celtic's part

this video doesnt really prove anything. Usually these games are put on for show. If the Celts wanted to they could stomp them. Lol, that video was just about the stupidest things ive ever seen. It showed clips of Freddy Adu passing the ball, not even highlights at all except for one or two shots.
