    Edu doesn’t deserve to be on the roster

    Dom Dwyer not replacing Keane? SMH

      The only valid reason I have for that is there are too many forwards. However Edu was not the midfielder I would’ve liked to be called in.

    Travesty that Lee Nguyen isn’t on this team.

      Him or Feilhaber easily should’ve gotten the nod over Edu

        Feilhaber or he, you mean?

    Edu is correct choice, should’ve been chosen above W. Johnson anyway, assuming Johnson was Porters choice and not fan voting pick

    109,000 at a friendly match between Real Madrid and Man U. Just wow

      I was looking at the pictures while out to eat and I thought my eyes were deceiving me. Is that the official number?

        Yup. That’s what the place holds and it was clealy bursting at the seams…. probably could’ve had 120k if they had the seats.

        Does anybody know — has the USMNT ever thought of staging a competitive match here? Not that we don’t have a ton of great venues already. It’s not exactly a “modern” venue, but it seems like you can get a rowdy 100k+ crowd in the Big House for a middle school science fair. And unlike the Rose Bowl (second biggest among venues hosting top level soccer), it would actually be a pro-USA crowd. Maybe we could crowbar the opener for the Copa 2016 here? There a reason why not?

        I don’t think they can get a big enough pitch in there for a meaningful international game. They were maxing out the width and it was about 66 yards. 10 yard hashes for corners were just about a yard off the penalty box. Unfortunately, I think it is just too tight. FWIW, I was about 40 rows off the field on the North end .

        My compliments on a very sensible answer. Intuitively I can’t really visualize it, after seeing the tennis court we played on in Antigua & Barbuda, but I’ve no doubt you have done your homework. Many thanks.

        What did you think of the atmosphere? Looked incredible…

        It was interesting because I’ve been to louder games with less fans (USMNT qualifiers and matches in Europe) but the sheer number was impressive. Wasn’t any organized singing or chanting because there were not any real organized supporters’ sections just pockets around the stadium. Everyone responded to big plays, the goals, the star players leaving or entering the games, and of course the wave….but it wasn’t one of those matches that was just buzzing with intensity from the crowd or where you feel like you are in the middle of a cauldron on full boil.

    This is crap, Galaxy. MLS has got to take this game seriously or don’t bother showing up.

      I disagree completely. All stars games are useless and we represent the only country infatuated with them. Give me meaningful international club competitions.

    That said, Edu is a positive development.

    It is time to get rid of the all star game. The coaches don’t want it and it is a waste of time. It makes our league look worse to the rest of the world. Our BEST players practice for a couple of days to play against one of the best clubs in the world who play together all the time and of course we don’t look good. No matter the result it just looks as the league grabbing our best players for all 19 teams to play one team. For what? It just doesn’t look professional. This type of thing should only be done in the off-season, but of course it can’t because our season is different from everyone else’s.
