MOST COMMENTED

"I strongly believe you could take Lionel Messi and put him on the worst team in Major League soccer, and they would still be the worst team in Major League Soccer."

-- New York City FC head coach Jason Kreis, who is spending six months embedded at Manchester City, NYCFC's parent club, ahead of its 2015 MLS launch. (MLS Insider)

    Fortunately this will never happen, because Messi would never expose himself to a league where the refs make no attempt to deal effectively to chronic vicious play by thuggish defenders. Nor will any truly skilled player come here, until the league cures themselves of the NHL approach to fair play.

    I think Kreis was trying to say that adding a superior player to a team that plays very poorly is not going to change the way the team plays. One man cannot save a team. They will still be a poor team with one very frustrated superior player.
