It was a good move to bring him in, as it's generating a lot of interest. You just wonder if it will matter and people will move on after the initial spike in interest.

It is true that he is a bit washed up, but I agree with JW that the talent level in the MLS is not very good, so he should be one of the best players in the league the moment he steps on the field.

To me, the problem the MLS has is that they will never be the destination for the best footballers. The level of play is so much higher in Europe, why would the best players come over to the States just to be the big fish in a small pond? It's understandable in Football (US), Basketball, and Baseball because the best leagues for those sports are here.

Plus Soccer players make a lot of money in Europe (especially if you play for Chelsea and can get some of Abramovich's Russian Oil Money), so they won't come over for economic reasons.

All correct. But the MLS isn't as crap as it used to be. The best teams could be as high as mid-table in the Premiership. Houston for sure.
