Some people will never be convinced that MLS is a tough league to play in.Matte said:
In fact i know almost nothing of the league wich players is good any new talents from the clubs youth team at all.
so i have wrote together a asking list wich i hope you can asnwer me on.
Okay here we go go
1 Wich team have the most fans in general (even outside their own home state or city.) ??
LA Galaxy, because they had Jorge Campos and Mauricio Cienfuegos from the start. And Cobi Jones, the most recognizable player for the US.
2 Wich of the teams have the best youth from the own club
teams don't control youth clubs, really. There is some effort to get MLS coaching onto "select" and "club" teams, which is the competitive teams in competitive youth leagues, ages 15 to 19.
3 do the clubs have B teams in the way we have in Europe like Barcelona B. There younger players can play their way thru to the A Team??
4 Do the clubs have a well fuctioned infrastructure like many clubs in the highest level have in Europe.
Not sure what you mean by infrastructure. If you mean personnel, like players growing up with the club, no. If you mean front office and stadium, that's different. Depends on the City
5 Do the Clubs in the MLS have official supporteclubs backed up by the motherclub??
To my knowledge, no supporters groups are official. Every MLS team has at least one supporters group (we have 3 in Dallas), that is self-operated, governed, etc. Most operate web pages, fanzines, and organize in and outside stadium activity.
6 How is the league structure now or do they plan to have two leagues with possible relegation to a division lower like we have in Europe??
Not likely, ever.
7 Is the interest for MLS increasing or decreasing??
Attendence in each city is going up, slowly. The long term picture is good, and as each stadium gets built, it gets better. The league average is about 16,000 now, for regular season games. The TV ratings are stagnant. MLS is re-working their media system, and so far it looks promising. the US doing well in the WC would be helpful.
