Yes, C team, this was definitely a C team mixture of guys who won't even see the Spurs 18 all season mixed with guys who are fighting to even be in the starting XI, mixed with about 4 true starters, Lennon, Dawson, etc.

Ladies and Gentlemen...I give you Ashley Cole:

"I had offers from the USA, but I'm not ready to relax on a beach yet," the former England international told reporters at Rome's Fiumicino airport. "I've won a lot in my career already, but I don't want to stop.

"I'm 33 and I'm getting older, but I still have a burning desire to win. That's what I'm here for. I've always had this winning mentality. I can't stand losing."

Typical ashley cole head up his ass comment. After that comment, no MLS team should give him a seconds thought.

Well, I can't blame the guy. And its not just him. Its a sentiment I understand because the feeling I get is that most "MLS fans" care more about league status rather than their team actually winning something.

Hmm, he must have forgot that time when MLS player Landon Donovan on loan to Everton made him look like a little bitch and burned him time after time. Probably should have sat on the bench then.

What? MLS fans don't care about their teams actually winning? OK, that is retarded. Please go tell that to the Seattle, Portland, Toronto, LA, Vancouver, SKC, and a half dozen other teams that are very well supported and loved by their city. Secondly, I think you feel that way about MLS fans mainly because the league is incredibly young and very different than most leagues, and gets a lot of hate for it. So MLS fans continually have to defend not just their individual team, but the entire league as a whole. No one likes their league to be labeled a "retirement" league, not because they're fans of the league itself, but because such a label reflects badly on the team they support.

Meh. I don't really care what Ashley Cole has to say. People have their opinions.

You can quote washed up players all day long, but in the end I have seen those same washed up players from Europe get eaten alive in MLS.

My guess MLS wasn't really interested in Ashley Cole. Hence his scathing comments.

Roma can have him.

Fully agree. Says more about Ashley Cole as a person that he feels the need to denigrate MLS than it says about MLS as a league. Just go about your own business, Ashley.

That must be what he meant when he said he wasn't ready to relax on the beach. He would be a benchwarmer in MLS

Having players, coaches, and front office people from Europe, Mexico, and other leagues around the world continually making snide remarks about MLS, means that MLS is absolutely a thriving league. They fear the American sports market. They fear American soccer becoming a world leader. They fear MLS becoming a top league. They don't want to see America having one of the best soccer leagues in the world. They want the US stay away from soccer because in the end they know they won't be able to compete in the future.

They fear the American sports market!?!?! They're exploiting it while MLS just trys to pick up the crumbs. World Cup ratings, EPL ratings are getting bigger and bigger, while MLS Cup ratings have dropped the past 4 years.

Bayern Munich just launched a USA/ENGLISH language specific website.

Man City expanded their brand and picked up a MLS franchise.

Look at the exhibition games going on here. Football stadiums are being sold out in a matter of days for scrimmages!

All those European, Mexican and other leagues LOVE the US market. They don't fear MLS whatsoever.

You're telling me that Ashley Cole wouldn't be able to take over the starting LB spot on Chivas USA from Tony Lochhead?

MLS lovefest is right. Don't be ridiculous.
