    Re: News Thread ... 2018-19 Season

    True. If nothing else a few matches featuring bottom dwellers in La Liga might put chase to the semi-myth that MLS is so freaking horrible. It's not. People routinely watch the best of the best from...

    We'll see. The US organizers have always talked openly about that approach being a loser. They know full well that only recognizable clubs playing in games that matter will really move the needle in...

    Exactly ... the run of high picks really started with them taking Taylor Hall number one overall in 2010. Hall now stars for the Devils of course, but they had three other picks inside the top 50 in...

    If any roster is built to take the injury of a player of that calibre in stride it's City's ... but still. Maybe that will put the governor on their start and open up the competition a bit.

    Pesce is probably a top pairing guy now, but that value is limited by his lack of offensive contributions. He's not a pure stay at homer, but that's the high value side of his game. But in general,...
