MLS has always struggled to produce quality fullbacks just look at the national team and the barren wasteland that is the fullback depth chart. Hopefully Yedlin and Klute change that. MLS has always had a hard time producing quality Fullbacks, Strikers, and Attacking Mids.

I think before you blame besler you have to take into account who is in that back line.

MLS has to seriously consider starting the season in January. Or change the Concacaf champions league format and schedule.

No way MLS is 10 years behind Liga MX. Three to five years max.

Here's the facts. MLS is set-up so that every team can compete in MLS which is called parity. But that just doesn't fly in international club competitions. The strongest teams with the bigger payrolls that can afford the better players win international club comps.

One day MLS will have to choose a middle ground. Meaning they are going to have to sacrifice some parity in MLS, and let the teams that are capable to pay players, buy those said players. I have no doubts in my mind if an MLS team consisted of a starting 11 of the top talent in MLS that that said MLS team would definitely compete and beat their opposing Liga MX counterparts.

I love MLS parity, but I am also realistic to the fact that eventually MLS will have to sacrifice some parity in order to reach the next level as a league. MLS is not in a bubble like the NFL. And the front office needs to recognize this.

MLS cant change Champions League format. Its a regional tournament meaning that in order to change the format every federation or at least most have to be in favor. Its a guess but changing MLS season start would be interesting

Nope. This is club soccer meaning Cruz Azul is made up of other nationalities. Cruz Azul has maybe two Mexicans that will be called up e.g. Fabian and Corona. Tijuana currently doesn't have any Mexican national team players in the mix. Toluca has Brizuela.

Lets keep this in mind.

Mexico has one of the hugest advantages playing in midseason versus just starting is so much of a competitive advantage. For example the mexican teams have their best starting 11 set the players are in rythm team chemistry is very good at this point. For mls teams you have new players being integrated into the teams. Schedule needs to be changed simple as that.

I have to say that Besler has been a but disappointing recently. Opara had to continually cover for him in both of these CCL games. He has been average in MLS play. And his last few USMNT appearances were a bit average as well e.g. against Panama and South Korea.

He needs to start playing better because quite frankly there isn't many CB's in top form in the USMNT pool for the WC.

I know Besler is capable of playing much better than he has.

Damn top two teams of MLS got fucking spanked! Lol agree MLS has at least 15 yrs to go before they become competitive against Liga MX. In dire need of cap raises, until than our league will never improve

That statement chronologically doesn't make sense.

And no I don't think MLS is way behind. I know it's hard to not overreact, but you're overreacting a little.

probably another over reaction by me but when your league champions get completely destroyed its pretty hard to blame people for reacting certain ways.
