As of right now England, Spain, Germany are ahead of MLS. Portugal and France aren't that far off. Not including PSG and Monaco bc they would beat any MLS team. Maybe the MLS is a top league in 10 or so years and maybe not..

I will support American players going to the better European leagues until that happens. I don't watch that mush MLS maybe the occasional game here and there, I watch all the top european leagues. But it is easy to tell Europe is where its at when you here every player saying they hope to go to Europe and play at the highest level. And it gets even more clear when mostly all the top Brazilian players got to Europe to play instead of staying in there quality league.


South Americans go to Europe because that's where the money is.

Brasilian players in the past have stated that they would have never left Brasil if they were paid as well as they got paid in Europe.

Falcao, Zico, Socrates and many more Brasilians hated Europe. Zico and Socrates specifically stated it was a mistake to ever go to Europe. They would have rather stayed in Brasil. Rhonaldinho had a lucrative deal from Turkish Giant Galatasaray. He turned it down because he wants to stay in Brasil. And Atletico Miniero is paying him well.

Yep, why bother watching European soccer when you can see the league in your country grow right in front of your eyes. I'm way more excited for the 2015 season than the next season to be honest.


Its very simple to watch both.

I wouldn't want an MLS player on a two month loan either unless I was absolutely sure that he could make an immediate impact. Two months is not long enough to learn the system and settle in especially for Defenders. To me the lack of interest speaks more about the nature of the circumstances than the quality of the player.


Thank you! Well said. I was going to post the same thing after reading everybody's comments, but you got it.

Ok they get payed well, doesn't hurt to make money. When Santos played Barca, Santos lost easily with neymar. Brazilians going to Europe is just furthering the quality of play in those leagues proving my statement. Of course money is a factor wasn't the point tho. And specific players not liking doesn't speak for all.

mx league better than france??? better than portugal????? nope... now maybe do the bottom teams of each league equal each other... i might agree to that, but benefica, sporting lisbon, and fc porto... and PSG, Monaco, LIlle, Marseille, would beat the best teams in mexico on a regular basis, now could the MX team win maybe 2/10 yes, but these teams are to good and to talented to say the MX league is greater. the likes of Falcao, Ibra, cavani, thiago silva, lavezzi, rodgriguiz, matudi, varela, mangala, garay, jackson martinez... are better than any player in the MX league....

Jackson Martinez came from Liga MX
