How good can this be?Raanan said:Rumours say he will fly to sign with Metrostars next week, and don't forget Guy Melamed who was drafted by Colorado, so we might see 2 Israelis in the MLS.
Melamed didn't really find his place back then. A Maccabi Haifa youth academy senior who moved between several teams (Rishon Lezion, Zafririm) and decided to try his luck abroad. He's improved a lot apparently. He's a defensive midfielder but can play in defense as well.Kappa21 said:How good can this be?
I mean, were talking about a leauge that goes like the NBA, MLB, NHL which there is no relegation
If your team sucks, it still stays on top!!
But, im worried about the level of play they will have, plus the 12 hour flight from JFK to Ben Gurion will harm them if they are called up to the NT
He was at Boston College.....Raanan said:Melamed didn't really find his place back then.

Raanan said:He was voted one of the best NCAA players from what I've heard. So it wasn't a surprise he was drafted, but still impressive since the majority were American players.
I know a couple of Canadians who play in NCAA soccer as well as in the MLS and the A-Leauge.
But com' on people!
The U.S Soccer is a joke. No Relegation, no promotion....
And yet, they consider this, and this is from a Canadian perspective:
MLS = PREMIER LEAUGE
A-Leauge = 1st Division
CPSL (not in the US) = 2nd Division
AAA = 2nd/3rd divison
AA = 4th division (region)
A = 5th Division (region)
Rep = 6th Division (house leauge)
Y&B POWER said:actually the A-League is now defunct and a new dawn is on the way!!
it is called:"USL" which stands for UNITED SOCCER LEAGUE a division split
this site is not official but it concludes all the Info on the new born form of Division II soccer level in the mighty US of A: http://www.uslfans.com
the lack of Promotion/relegation in the US Soccer scene is a result of a false attitude towards the game and i've already been giving my piece of my mind at the Big-Soccer boards and got insulted heavily by the fanatic hord
BTW:i believe the "AAA" etc represents a NCAA(college)soccer
below the USL there's the PDL(premier developement league) and then the USASA(amateur)
for me personally the US Soccer highlights are the US OPEN CUP matches which involved MLS clubs alongside teams from lower division
the tournament is unique amongst the American sports scene and hopefully Melamed and Rosen will play on these ties
P.S: how r u Raanan? just saw yer name mentioned on the Tapuz forum and i've decided to bile in for a while
