That is a myth. The reality is that when Americans play in more competitive leagues they tend to get less minutes and serve as more of a rotational players. US players aren't dominant players in the Euro leagues, they aren't always even given good slots as role-players. So really, that idea is moot because if they're not actually on the pitch playing considerable minutes how exactly are they evolving their game?

MLS isn't ASYO, dudes play hard. Meaningful minutes I think are more important to development than playing nominal roles on more meaningful teams. Further, US players aren't even really on any of the better teams in Europe, so are they really better off? Are some of the squads they play for necessarily THAT much better than MLS? I'd argue not.

Maybe it is about bringing top notch talent to play in MLS?

He cried when he won.

 


He deserved it. Messi's still the better player imo but he was injured at key points last season.

Thought the World XI was a bit uninspiring and safe, especially keeping Xavi in there. Not sure who I'd have put in instead though.

It's a masterstroke by Mourinho. By selling Mata to Man U, he's now almost guaranteed to get the player he wants most.

I'll be amazed if Rooney's not at Stamford Bridge next season.

I've been following Mourinho for awhile and I don't really believe in the Rooney love affair.

Rooney is a player that Mourinho wouldn't dislike but was perfectly aware that United wouldn't let go.

Win-win. He's done this sort of hounding before.

And come on, what's the likelihood he'll be back to form? Rooney is so much more useful as a destabilising element. He'll be benched next season and you'll be hearing about this love affair. "Mind games" really.

Assuming you're right, the masterstroke is selling Mata, knowing the amount MU have paid for him will force Moyes to play him in the position Rooney's currently in, and seems to really like. It's probably the one area that doesn't need strengthening. So yeah, if it is just a destabilising tactic, it's a bloody clever one.

They got Mata from Valencia for a substantially lower fee so the deal gives them a good headroom to move in market under the Financial Fair Play rules.

I'm not sure Man Utd are going to change their system mid-season, but Juan can play further back to left or to the right. At this point he should just be happy to play.

He seems like a marquee signing, more about proving a point than filling an immediate need. Similar in a way to Arsenal getting Ozil. If Moyes is ultimately about restructuring the midfield around Mata then it makes sense but if that is the case it doesn't leave room for Rooney.

Rooney could go back up front with VP as part of a 4-4-2 but that doesn't seem like a formation ideal for Mata or Rooney.

Then you really should love Ronaldo. He's probably the most disliked player out there. Most of even those who acknowledge how good he is have trouble liking him. But then if you're drawn to unpopular players, you should love Suarez, too.

Yeah, Mourinho hardly plays him. He says he doesn't fit his system and hints that he's a bit lazy, even though he was Chelsea's player of the year two seasons running.
