    That's quite a tribute to the program.

    The MLS is awful, US soccer is terrible

    Let the top 100 kids go to academies in Euorpe. They can play for USMNT and play professionally wherever. The MLS academies are worthless

    Great showing by MLS. To be able to stay close to The Arsenal is quite an achievement. :D

    I caught the first 20 minutes of it. Arsenal looked fast, MLS looked like an all-star team playing in spurts. Dos Santos missed a great opportunity early (nice save by Cech).

    Love that Drogba scored against Arsenal (again) on former Chelsea teammate Cech, and CONCACAF impact of Campbell (Costa Rico) converting a PK against Blake (Jamaica).

    Larin had a beautiful run, settled the ball in the box, then delivered a perfect pass to Wondolowski who somehow aired it.

    Wondo missed a point blank opportunity, that never happens.

    This makes absolutely no sense. How is the existence of MLS keeping "the top 100 kids" from going to "academies in Europe"???
