Donovan should take pks
from now on, not Keane. Plus it will benefit him going into the wc. Might come in handy.

Anybody but Deuce with the Nats. I don't care if he is the captain, he doesn't take PKs well...has to be LD...sounds ridiculous but something like that could potentially bite us in the ass....Deuce backing LD off a PK at the WC.

FWIW...

Met a German fellow in Costa Rica this week and chatted about soccer. He mentioned he was from Hamburg, so immediately brought up Dolo. He knew him and understood what an important player he was for club and country. We talked about a few things like how Bayern Munich will be the downfall of the Bundelsiga, but how amazing it is to watch them play. Also told me he was a Werder Bremen supporter because of his father, all the while living in Hamburg. Apparently you have a choice in that region between Hamburg and Werder Bremen.

So I brought up to him NYCFC and how it will effect the MLS with rivalries and what not. He responded to me with "MLS?" And I said yeah, you know the American professional soccer league. He had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. I was a bit taken back by his response, but proceeded on explain to him the league a bit.

Anyway, does anybody else have any take on this? Have you encountered anybody in your travels that knows or doesn't know MLS? Would like to hear some responses...

This isn't typical. I've lived in Europe including Germany and most fans have heard of the MLS and are specifically aware of Donovan and Beckham. Last fall a few Germans approached me about my thoughts of Dempsey returning home. The level of fans I'm talking about follow the Bundesliga but had never heard of Brooks despite living in Berlin. So I'm not talking about diehard fans here.

Some people had a negative preconceived notion about the quality of the league but that's another story.

With that said way more Europeans could talk about the Americans in Europe including Jozy based on his time with AZ which I found interesting.
