Lets face it, the MLS just won’t be that big in the United States due to the overpowering strangle that the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL have on the major sports fan. These are considered the best leagues in the world. Thats why you don’t hear much about the MLS. The MLS is considered weak in comparison to the European leagues. I’m pretty confident that any team in the EPL, La Liga, Seria A and probably a few others can come in and beat any MLS team at least 6 out of 10 times. This doesn’t mean that the MLS or the US is bad at soccer; it just means the US isn’t as good from top to bottom. Many of the best players from the US actually travel over seas to play for clubs. Tim Howard, the US goalie, starts for Everton. Eric Lichaj plays for Aston Villa. Clint Dempsey plays for Fulham. The US definitely does have some players who are recognized for their talents around the world. The MLS has been taking advantage of the recently credibility the US has gained. Teams from Europe often come over seas to play exhibition games. In 2011 the line up for Europe vs. MLS is pretty solid especially since Manchester United will be touring the states playing at various locations. You may not get the starting squad from the European teams but that doesn’t mean you won’t see a great performance.
