Speaking of Charlton

Apparently, it was Charlton Athletic of the English Premiere League that made the offer for New England Revolution star Clint Dempsey. Apparently they offered the MLS $1 million as a transfer fee and MLS said no way.

This is just business but some soccer socialists are crying slavery and are beating up on the MLS. They just need to do what Clint did, just shut up and get back to work. Clint wants to go England and his contract will be up sooner or later and then he can go.

Love is in the air. The English Premiere league is falling in love with that cute young girl named Major League Soccer. Chelski trained in Los Angeles this year. Several team including FC Celtic from the Scottish Elite league did summer tours over here.

In fact, three New England Revolution players are getting wooed by the EPL: Chalrie Joseph, Clint Dempsey and Taylor Twellman. This bodes well for the MLS and for US Soccer. I truly believe that the United States will dominate this sport within a decade.
