Short, sweet here.
Hans Backe acknowledged this week that his All-Star selections were strategic in nature so his MLS squad could compete against might Manchester United July 27th at Red Bull Arena.
…but this is just the pre-season for United.
…are the “strategic” MLS players that much better that they can come together for one, maybe two practices and compete against players that play and practice together all the time?
You can’t straddle the line MLS. Call it “the summer star exhibition” or make it a true All-Star game.
Can’t have both. Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs…giggling.
