I think we all knew Liga mx is miles ahead of MLS....


This is the horse crap kind of quote that makes a player look stupid. He was no where near the best CB in MLS. His team practically begged him to leave so they could bring in a different player. No one in Europe wanted him. He goes to MX, walks into the starting role for the champions. His MLS time didnt help him become better than any Liga MX developed CBs in Pachua? Dumbass. Is Pogba going to say these things about Serie A? Did Bale say those things about EPL?

Gonzalez is a clown. ESPNFC is so anti US Soccer its ridiculous.

MSantoine, Omar isn't biased, he's quite right from my perspective. We all know that an MLS starting XI can hang with most Liga MX teams. But positions 12-20 is where the drop in quality is. Because of injuries, squad rotation, the timing of the knockout rounds etc., it is very rarely best in form XI vs best in form XI in CCL. Additionally, he was easily one of the top CBs in MLS. He had however grown complacent, probably due to the fact that there isn't enough quality on even LA to push him day in, day out.

Everyone knows the depth is the difference. The quality of play is not. We see time and time again guys who are semi succesful in MLS go over to MX and become week in week out starters (Gonzalez, Herc, Beasley, etc). We very rarely see MX guys come over to MLS and be successful.

You cant just blame that on style of play.

Well to be fair, we rarely see players come to MLS from Liga MX period.

I read the article a few times looking for soemthing to be upset about but I don't see anything incendiary in it whatsoever. What is so controversial about him saying the league is different and that it has more depth? He doesn't put down mls either anyplace in the article

I think the quote he leads the article with is pretty derogatory towards mls. He says that he really had to up his game to get to the level for MX. Insinuating that mls he could take games, plays off and that he didn't have to try to be a 4 time all star but he has to really try hard to make it in MX.

He didn't say anything any of us didn't already know. It's not much of an issue. Except for those who think MLS is quality soccer.

Nothing to see here. Don't blame Gonzo for a writer doing his job with a catchy headline.

DEFENDERS: Marco Farfan (Portland Timbers), Kortne Ford (Colorado Rapids), Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake), Auston Trusty (Philadelphia Union)
