    Default MLS

    Just wondering how many,if any,of the people on the forum follow the MLS?

    Toronto just recently got a new franchise and are now in their second season and have signed some semi-decent players this season.Laurent Robert,Olivier Tebily,Carl Robinson,Rohan Ricketts just to name a few.I'm sure a lot of you remember Jim Brennan,he's playing for them and is doing quite well over here.

    Basically I'm just curious to see if the MLS gets mentioned much over there? I'm not over often enough to hear people talking about it.

    Although when I watch Sky Sports News over here I do see that the MLS scores are posted on the right hand side of the screen.

    I try to keep up with it but coverage isn't brilliant to be honest.

    From what I have seen though, the standard of defending is horrific!

    It was completely ignored by all but Coventry City fans when they signed Cobi Jones, then he left/dissapeared off the face of the Earth and it was ignored completely.

    Years later Beckham went over there, people feigned interest in a while, then, due to the MLS's overall crapness, people lost interest again.

    I personally follow it reasonably closely, but that is due to someone close to me being a major San Jose Earthquakes fan.

    Channel Five, a terrestrial channel, ran an MLS magazine review show every week, called "David Beckham's Major League Soccer", but I think it has been pulled now.

    I thought this was about Multiple Sclerosis.
    That spelling cant be right.
    If it's about Yankee Soccer then Darren Huckerby is a legend or so I am told.

    It's just the same game with different words, and a slower pace. Like watching an entire season of pre season friendlies.

    I like it when they refer to a shoulder barge as "getting chicken winged."

    Can a sport really have a tea break?

    Do you like Cricket? I wasn't aware you were a homosexual.

    I like cricket. It's a sport for people who have patience.

    And anyone who calls it boring, but watches a load of cars go round a track, I don't understand these people.

    Americans like to watch cars go around tracks and whoop.

    Motorsport is much better than cricket.

    Something I don't understand is when someone bowls a good ball, the people around him tend to slightly mumble 'bowling'.

    Now, why don't they just high five him or something. OIr at least say 'good bowling'?

    Also, how is it good bowling if they didn't hit the wickets?

    Is it time for tea yet?

    Car racing and American Football go hand in hand. Heres a word from our sponsors.

    It's hard to think of a better way to spend one's day than a sunny afternoon at the Test match.

    its good bowling when the bowler hits a perfect line or length and/or is unlucky not to take a wicket and makes the batsman nervous or when the bowler makes a batsman play a shot but the deliverys so good the batsman totally misses it

    don't watch it or care about it, occasionally they show Beckham putting the ball 'in the mixer' but it's generally reported in a patronising way.

    Isn't all about the engineers stealing plans from another team and making the bat go faster?

    Only about 4 countries in the world care about Cricket.

    Most of them can really be put together into one country, really.

    Pretty much leaving England, Australia and others.

    Ok, I did know you were homosexual. I didn't know you like cricket though, that makes you weirdly gay.

    I can think of a veritable plethora of better ways to spend a sunny afternoon than watching cricket.

    More people care about Cricket in India, than care about motorcar racing in the UK.
