Dare I say the game is overtaking these lads?
An overseas video on how Beckham–and MLS–are viewed by dare we say xenophobic pundits.
Interesting here that the two ex-players involved in this exchange has interesting backgrounds:
Dion Dublin played some of his best ball at Coventry in partnership with none other than MLS star Darren Huckerby–he featured for about 15 games at Manchester United but over 140 at Aston Villa as well. Ray Stubbs–perhaps the most critical on the broadcast–never played above League Four I believe in England.
Perhaps the most cutting correspondent is Patrick Barclay–a sportswriter, not ex-player.
This is not take completely antagonist view, but merely to illuminate “credentials.” Whether the critics are right on their review of MLS, the naive approach is one that won’t fly as soccer becomes more and more global.
