    These wfc games are going to generate a pretty decent amount of money. Does anyone know if mls players get a cut of it?


  • John

    Not only that. Venezuela’s keeper got the assist on the last goal when he went up for the corner.


  • Kyle

    Is NE unmotivated or are they just that bad? I know its a friendly but Nyassi looks to be the only man with legs to this point. Run at ’em boys. If you go down so be it.


  • fifawitz1313

    Man it looks like Anderson has gained like 30 lbs in the offseason. Pretty impressive considering the season didn’t end that long ago.


  • steve cherundolo

    is that cause he looks fat or strong? hope its the latter. anderson has so much talent and i hope he can finally live up to his potential this season.


  • John

    Univision.com has the games in great quality HD if you don’t mind it being in Spanish. Just click on the game icon.


  • Rod

    It’s a friendly for both sides…The NE baby backline is holding up fairly well


  • patrick

    don’t think so, but im pretty sure that in the past when they go abroad on tours (Galaxy to Australia comes to mind, maybe NY and the Emirates Cup?) they’ve gotten compensation.


  • marco

    Stevie I haven’t watch your side in a while but Boggs and Lekic are rubbish. Look for replacements in the parks.


  • John

    If Ecuador wins, Brazil gets knocked out. I hope they do so they can get their stuff together.


  • Brit

    Well they held in there for a half. Man U has crushed its fair share of lower EPL teams; NE is currently a lower MLS team. I’m not embarrassed at all really. Not that anyone here was MLS-bashing.


  • shawn

    i thought this was an issue during the last cba negotiations and that some sort of agreement was worked out, but i could be wrong.


  • Larry Y

    MLS B teams have a hard enough time making it a game against MLS A teams (or consistently handling USL teams in US Open Cup), much less a Manchester United who’s bringing in Rio Ferdinand, Ji Sung Park and Ryan Giggs off the bench.


  • Lito

    Poor performance by NE…and they badly need a DP player. Nichol should be embarrassed.


  • glaing

    Get two DPs and pay Joseph a DP salary. While they are at it, build soccer specific stadium.


  • Casi

    Quite the opposite… The US kits by Nike have always been awful. They need a switch. Adidas has always been #1.


  • Topher

    I agree with Casi. I really would like to see the US make the switch. Adidas kits are class.


  • chris

    Didn’t realise you liked stripes on every adidas jersey. Look abroad nike has the most creative kits all over the world. I do agree its time to get rid of the sash


  • Jamel

    NE revo loses 4-1 to a pre season man united. Imagine when they are fully recover from there break. They are going to humiliate the all stars again.


  • Shawn

    NE is far from the all-stars…maybe Joseph is all star quality but the others are garbage including Feilhaber. Steve N is overrated also


  • K Bone

    Pretty sure United will crush the All Stars too. Didn’t they crush them last year too?
