Metrostars better off without Lothar Matthäus?

NY/NJ Metrostars have had a pretty decent rum recently - without German Allstar Lothar Matthäus. The question rises: Are the Metros better off without him? As far as I can tell, he didn´t sparkle the Metros too much in the few matches he played. Plus, he seems not too happy playing in New York... (at least German media report so). If this is true, well, then I think it would be best for both sides if Lothar quit the Metrostars. What du you think?

keep Lothar on the bench!
he will provide the spark needed for a run to the playoffs, just 12 more games and the finals will be in NY....I hope that Lothar learns some spanish to comunicate with valencia, comas, ramos, Roy Myers and Villegas! The #10 is not ready for the style of MLS.....not that is better that in germany, just different.
the 2 Colombians and he spanish problems that he had with others seemed to vanish as soon as Herr LM got lost!

go soccer - the MLS way! kc 0 -1 NY, now in the irst place of their eastern conference.

fire the germ...or just pay half of the contracted money!

bring more southamerican talent to USA.
good comments from all of U///

The question about too many oldies: well, LM is 1 of 4 old players, el pibe, hristo s. and T. dooley. el Pibe is the all tim leader in assists _pases goal_ and hristo did not help much in chicago....but, Is not fear to say that MLs is getting old farts around he Usa....Look at M diallo -senegal-, w. sinsing -costa R-, w. zuniga _colomb- and more

the question about the salary cap.....in yr 2000 is 1.7 mill plus bonuses.

dc is out Ny is In!
