An Idiot Abroad’s Guide to MLS – Part 2. Eastern Conference

An Idiot Abroad’s Guide to MLS – Part 2. Eastern Conference

Photo 14-02-2014 10 54 13When someone in the UK looks east in the morning, they see a rising sun shielded by grey clouds. That is, apart from those in London. For when those fine fellows look eastwards, they see Harry Redknapp; a man who knows more about the East than the Dalai Lama. He and assistant Kevin Bond were kind enough not to notice me recording their conversation on a dictaphone parked outside The Crown and Sceptre.

HR – “’Ere, Kev. I was on the old dog and bone this mornin’. You wanna see some of these players we got scouted from the USA! Proper players. ‘Ave a gander at this.” Read More

The FIFA ‘Handshake for Peace’ party is in full swing and couples are gliding around the dancefloor to New Order’s “World in Motion”. Two lonely souls exchange wary glances from opposite corners of this crowded room; their mutual curiosity almost tangibly entangled. One takes a final swig of pimms and strides unsteadily towards the other…

“I say. Surely no kingdom would in good conscience allow such a captivating light to leave their skies so dark. May I be so honoured as to learn your name?”

“I’m… I’m…” The words hang in the air with unresolved suspense. I impatiently descend upon them from the rafters and intervene.

“This, my bravado fuelled but slightly pretentious friend, is none other than MLS. And I’m here to give you the lowdown on its Western Conference. There’s only one way to beat them. Get round the back”, I offer smugly, synchronising with the recorded voice of John Barnes. I hand him a scroll entitled ‘An Idiot Abroad’s Guide to MLS Clubs’.

After a long pause comes forth the confused suitor’s retort,

“Sorry old chap, but what the crivens am I looking at?” My reply shook him to the core.

“You’re looking at the masterplan.”

So that’s the legend. Now let’s look at the scroll itself. I’ve listed players that I haven’t hesitated in putting on my watchlist and dug into some of the tried and trusted performers to help give you a solid foundation from the get-go. Of course more will come to our collective attentions as the season unfolds, and our player loyalties will diverge as we all find our own favourites and uncover the new batch of cheap gems. That of course is most of the fun. Read More

Welcome to the world of MLS and more importantly a massive warm welcome to our latest writer, or as we refer to him now ‘our resident MLS expert’ Bryan Munich. Most of you will be familiar with Bryan from the site already but will perhaps not be aware of his MLS credentials. Bryan finished an incredible 39th in the world in MLS last season despite being a humble Sheffield Wednesday supporting Yorkshireman and actually residing in Japan for the last four years! He actually managed a very special and rare accomplishment along the way last season and was the overall top scorer for the entire game in one game-week. Not many can boast that! Bryan is no FPL novice either, he is currently ranked 8th overall in Japan and is in the top 16k overall. In fact should anyone ever fall behind in the rankings then perhaps Bryan is the man to turn to for advive. Having been ranked 1.3m after GW6 in the FPL, Bryan has presided over an astonishing revival ever since and as such is currently in the top 0.4% of FPL players in the world! He has also asked us to mention that he did not get ‘anything’ for Valentines Day. Not quite sure what ‘anything’ means but there is still time left yet Bryan! Over to the man himself….. Read More
