Can we even consider usa to be a land for talented players, I mean al they do is lure some talented immigrants in by offering them a free stay and hope that they would choose usa instead of their real native land. :nono:
US players are better athletes than the ones in Europe, but lack the technical skill. Even Klinsmann said something similar as has American fitness coaches in his staff. The problem in American youth soccer is that for coaches, running your ass off for 90 minutes (something certain European countries can't do) is more important than passing :lala:
Johnny, don't get your pants wet because you finally seem to have found 3 talents that are actually doing good in Europe that have some connection to USA. I don't consider Landon Donovan as a big talent nor do I consider Adu or Altidore. Donovan hardly made the bench for Bayer Leverkusen at his prime. Adu and Altidore should be lucky to even see the pitch for the teams that they play for. What you don't seem to get is that 99% of your players are highly overrated. Like that player Kamiani Hill that was one of the best players in MLS. Once he moved to Wolfsburg, he's been playing for their second team ever since. The MLS gets broadcasts like no other league out there and the stadiums are high class. People come in big numbers to see MLS games. All this makes it seem like MLS is actually a good league when honestly, it wouldn't even be able to compete with leagues such as Croatian HNL or Serbian Meridian. Oh and the people that come in big numbers aren't fans....they are what I call "spectators".
And just for the record, Subotic nor Ibisevic were actually born in USA. Subotic (the best defender in the Bundesliga) nor Vedad Ibisevic (the best striker in the Bundesliga) wanted to play for the USA. Get over it. It's a cruel world out there.
he went to Germany straight out of college, shows how much you know
Compared to the Croatian/Serbian league, the MLS has better athletes, you won't have players showing up to training drunk. The technical skill may not be there from the American players (from the South American players though) but it is certainly a more professional league than the two I mentioned. Also, MLS has developed some decent players, nothing world class, but good enough players
