The biggest difference I notice in the EPL and MLS is the back line play and quality of center backs.
I guess this is a result of, when a team does have a quality defender (ie Geoff Cameron), he is sold off to Europe.

That's a very good point. I've been worried about the same thing happening to Omar Gonzalez...

I think its time that Omar starts getting more run-outs for USMNT. Have you looked at the age of our back line recently?? By the time WC14 comes around, assuming we make it, those guys will be collecting filing for AARP membership.

I hope Omar doesn't get sold off to Europe, only to sit on the bench of some relegation zone team.

CCL Update:

Houston ties Olimipa 0-0, moves on to next round.

Salt Lake ties Herediano, is eliminated.

Toronto plays Santos Laguna today, needs to win by 3-0 or by two if they score four goals.... not looking good for them.

Seattle plays Marathon today, is already in next round. Playing for seeding.

LA plays Isidro Metapan tomorrow, is already in next round. Playing for seeding.

I'll have to catch more MLS. I always thought "let's try to count how many throw-ins in a half" but I've heard so many people comment on the improvement in quality, I better get on board with our domestic game. It's tricky though, as I don't have a TV, so I rely on a buddy with fox soccer and his lake house with fox and GolTV.

I have caught some streams before- streaming was my only source for several years, and stream quality sucked back then! Seemed like every cross or through ball made the stream lag for about 10 seconds.

Nope all is well in the streaming world. You can find some nice crisp ones now. But you won't see any MLS regular season on Fox Soccer. Maybe some Champions League, but MLS has deals with NBC Sports Network, NBC, ESPN, and a surprisingly large number of local-market channels. Plus you're lucky to have an in-state club to cheer for! When I was a young lad growing up in Vegas I adopted the closest city/club, LA.

Pretty cool that the US will be hosting the Copa America in 2016.
Great chance to see some high quality south american teams field their best players on US soil.

Indeed! It's about time they included CONCACAF in the tournament. Throw in the fact that we automatically qualify and are hosting and you have my attention for sure.

It is great news, I think I´ll be heading to the US in 2016 for beer and soccer. Sounds like a good combo. Four more years... it is a long run but I´ll try to be there.
