It's really not since who actually cares about pre season games? Most of our team are still on holiday after that World Cup that screws the summer up  :\

dont you think that it is done on purpose
to make football more popular in the states
- they are such a strong market and it would be awesome
for the footbal industry if they got interested in the game more than
they are into baseball lets say

I've got an idea. Why don't you try to convince me with past scores between the MLS and PL. If the MLS almost always beats the PL in these games, then you might be on to something.

I'll wait, but I think you'll discover that that is not the case. So if it's never been the case, why are the games rigged today?

Offcourse this is just my point of view - Maybe they decided now is a good momentum
because after not so bad presentation of USA soccer team on WC 2010 it is not so hard
to believe that one american team can win against MUFC  (if MUFC is really playing hard to win)

and before it was enough to loose 1 goal difference and they would say "hey we are not that bad at football"

Ha! MLS all-stars aren't even a team that's ever practiced together once. Seems ManU didn't care much for being humiliated at Arrowhead Stadium  :)~

Fox Soccer channel should be included with the top 250 package on Directv like the Golf Channel, Tennis Channel, NBAtv, and NFL Network..-)

:bye1:

Huh, I have Comcast and have to pay extra for FSC and TC and a bunch of other sports programming channels that I don't watch. The sports package does include NFL Channel, but it's also included in the regular package, so I have NFL Channel on two different channels. I think you've got the better deal if all you are missing is FSC.

I also meant to add the MLB network and NHL network as well! :whistle:

Hey, for whatever reason, FSC has shown 3-4 of Philadelphia Union games. They've always done well on TV. Sebastien Le Toux is pretty impressive and Danny Mwanga looks like he's ALL THAT :thumbs-up:

I don't follow soccer nor the MLS. However, the German World Cup performance and some of the cute players on other teams has gotten me interested in the Bundesliga and EPL. In the Bundesliga, is the style of play similar to what the Germans displayed in South Africa? Or is it what I saw from the Spaniards which was playing a zone?

Cliche or not, I love the team for the unity they show, the history behind the team and the fact that they play such wonderful football and I've been enjoying them alongside another of my favourite team in Barcelona from as long as I can remember. These two teams have a history of not entertaining nonsense  :))
