Are we polluting MLS with almost retired players?

Corradi (36) and Ferrari (32) at Montréal Impact, Di Vaio (almost 36) could join them. Who is next? Del Piero (almost 38!)?

If they want them, let them have them.

Del Piero can certainly do a good job against MLS defences.

This can't be a bad thing for the image of Seria A, can it?

Personally I'd wish that more Seria A teams market themselves in China as football there is higher on the priority list than in the USA (I think only Milan are trying to establish themselves in China as the team in Seria A to follow).

VENI. VIDI. VICI.

Probably I should have started this thread in the USA/Canada forum. I believe getting old farts (and not even the best in most of cases) who are cearly looking for the money serie A would never give them, will affect the MLS.

Methinks not. MLS has done a pretty decent job of recruiting talent from North, Central and South America while not failing to bring in marquee players to sell tickets.

Yeah Johnny, and in China you can find like billions of billions of people. And let's face it - "soccer" in the USA is a women sport.
