    Wouldn't exactly help remove the "retirement league" stereotype they're working hard to rid themselves of though.

      He single handedly increased attendances at every match he played though and I'd assume it would have a similar effect over there

        Cosmos should sign him. They have the money, apparently.

          I wonder how the A-League compares to MLS. ADP's game would probably work up here, as he relies on smart football, positioning and the ability to find a pass and take a chance, so his physical attributes can deteriorate and he can still perform. A perfect example would be Guillermo Barros Schelotto at Columbus, who was slow as molasses and not very strong, but still had all of his ball control, vision and passing ability. He was great for them (and that's tough for me to say).

            He's been great at winning freekicks and penalties just by positioning himself between the ball and the tackle at the last moment. I'd say physically they would be similar leagues but the MLS would be light years ahead technically and tactically. Probably the best news for the a league is Manchester city purchasing melbourne heart, renaming them to melbourne city and turning them into an academy team. At the moment players like James troisi can come here and instantly be one of the best in the league whereas I think hed be one of the better players in the mls but definitely no star

              Blanco did really well for Chicago too and he was SLOW.

              Edit: and he's still playing in Mexico for Lobos BUAP.

                Yeah, GBS was great at winning free kicks (diving c***). ADP would fit that mould perfectly, I guess.

                    Chivas USA will be renamed and possibly relocated. This is great news...all I want to hear next is that the franchise will be moved to San Diego.

                    Before this note, I'd heard that Real Salt Lake might want to have a USL team in San Diego...something like Real San Diego.

                    There is plenty of youth talent in the area...most kids leave to Xolos/Galaxy/Chivas USA but with an MLS team in SD all the talent pool would stay here.

                    EDIT: The new owners objective is to keep the team in LA. *thumbs down*

                      Yeah, the USL thing looks like it's happening. Dell Loy Hansen (RSL's owner) keeps a home in San Diego County so it makes sense.

                      Xolos are looking to extend their footprint further into CA, something about an academy. You get the feeling they want to be *the* team for Southern California and Baja California.

                            I saw it. That was something, even by his standards.
