I think I missed the whole bloodbath thing, not being overly dramatic there at all.

All I can say those tackles were no good for a friendly match. I don't blame Bayern if they don't come back. It's also bad reputation for the MLS.

The tackling is never superb in MLS, its a lower quality league so what can one expect ? Ive been talking about the poor tackling for years on here. Who cares if Bayern dont come back, US is a huge market and if they want to lose out on money they can.

Alonzo's tackle was uncalled for, that's the only one that was really bad. Funny thing, it was Alonzo complaining to Tottenham about one of their challenges.

If that Alonzo tackle didn't happen, I didn't think there wouldn't be any drama. Johnson made a mistake, but the interesting thing is it is usually Schweinsteiger that is being overly aggressive on challenges. Cahill was more aggressive than I expected, but nothing ridiculous. That's my opinion.

I don't know if this was the case here, but a lot of times, the coach and players have very little decision making ability to prevent pre-season tours in other countries. It's all managed by the marketing department and the upper managment in the club. Judging by Pep's reaction, seems like he may have got a "I told you so" tale to tell when back in Germany.

I don't blame the manager of the All stars.. but some of those tackles were a bit silly for a friendly.. although of course the game probably means more to the MLS all-stars than to Barcelona, a chance to play a top world team

Marketing matters aside, the game means a lot to the US players in the MLS team, not so much to the international players in the MLS team, and nothing at all to Bayern, to be honest.

Any MLS fans following the Jermaine Jones saga? I guess yesterday they (MLS and his agent) agreed on financials and he said he wanted to play for the Chicago Fire, but the league couldn't guarantee a specific team. How dumb is that? The MLS has way too much bureaucracy and crazy rules.

MLS is ruining teams with decisions like that, they need out of transfers. Colorado where signing a player and did his medical and they sent him to a different team because they can. If you think that MLS wont bow down and just hand Man City all the best players they can people are crazy too.
