Since I follow the MLS, LA Galaxy domains the league. I don't follow the league since 1996, but I think maybe this can be the best team is US soccer history.

i'm sure that the Metrostars of the late 70's might have something to say about that...

YES NO DOUBT BY A LONG DISTANCE... NO TEAM IS EVEN CLOSE...... GALAXY ARE SO MUCH SUPERIOR, AND REPORTS SAY THAT KAKA IS CONSIDERING A MOVE TO LA GALAXY THIS UPCOMING SEASON.. THAT WOULD BE A 3PT....

Original post from USnLFCfan

Original Cosmos.


I don't have a problem with the Cosmos being considered the best, but I would like to add a qualification to OPs question: Best American team that has significant American contributors.

The '77 championship Cosmos (Pele's last year) only had three Americans that played more than 10 games that season, and one of them was a dual national with Yugoslavia. Another was goalkeeper Shep Messing.
Same with the '78 Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, and the '79 Strikers that had George Best, Gary Stanley, Gerd Mueller and Ray Hudson (!) on the roster. (even though neither of those teams were outstanding in general, just an example of big name rosters with no Yank contributors)
Hooray!

With Jesse Marsch and David Wagner at the helms of teams in the top flight, YA will cover their exploits this season.
