Default MLS All Stars beat up Bayern Munich

Rather than hi-jack the EPL thread, I thought I'd throw this article up in it's own thread. That game deserves it's own thread anyway...

Here are a couple of articles discussing the 2-1 MLS win.

Link to article discussing game.

Quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. – When you pit a team filled with stars against an all-star team, the latter will always be at a disadvantage.
No one bothered to tell the Major League Soccer All-Star team, which held its own against Bayern Munich Wednesday night, beating the German juggernaut 2-1.
“These guys were true professionals,” MLS All-Star coach Caleb Porter said. “We scored two great goals, some of the sequences we put together were fantastic.”...
This is a great point. An All Star team is at a disadvantage when it comes to team chemistry, quite a disadvantage.

Link to article discussing Bayern Munich's coaches response, note he says he didn't see the MLS coach, yeah and Suarez doesn't enjoy human flesh...

Quote:
“We tried to play, and we were not prepared for the situation. I expect MLS to invite us back for revenge, and we will prepare much better.”
There is no doubt if they came with their World Cup winning line up in mid-season form they would handle the MLS All Stars. What did they have like 6 starters on the German squad? No wonder Germany won. But this game was very competitive and a fantastic showing of the skill in the American game.

Didn't Bayern only play their stars for just a couple of minutes at the end?

In any event, this game doesn't mean anything. It's an exhibition that the German team didn't give a damn about and that American sports media is trying to make a big deal

I agree, this is just because of the strong ratings coming out of the World Cup.
The MLS beat Chelsea in 2012 and 06 and no one freaked out like this.

They played well last night though.

Bayerns coach was mad bc mls players played hard, they came to win.

I didn't see any mls player panicking with the ball at their feet like they usually do, that's good.

Donovan, who only played 23 minutes, scored on Neuer. The World Cup champions subbed in at 75 minutes. It was the skill and confidence the MLS squad played with that was impressive.

MLS is good enough for me to follow and as the following grows it's only a matter of time before they are on the same level as the Euro leagues. Now I just have to pick a team. DC United will probably be my squad unless they get the Miami group going, have a feeling that's going to be a solid market.

I don't like Pep as the manager of Munich, just doesn't seem like a good fit to me.

I'm trying to like soccer a little...but then this thread messes with me.

I read title: "team BEAT UP on team"

Final score: 2-1.

I don't think the OP was referencing the scoreline as much as the actual physicality of the match.

Default Re: MLS All Stars beat up Bayern Munich

In soccer you can win 1-0 and yoi can still dominate. Dominating means being all over your opponent.

In boxing for example, you can beat the crap out of the dude and if he won't go down he is not done but still getting whopped.

The score doesn't always tell the reality of the game.

Belgium for example, they made us looked like a jv team even though they didnt score that many goals.

MLS had a legit game vs Bayern.

The title came from the article linked. But it's just like any sport, including football the score doesn't necessarily represent the game. We've all seen 1 touchdown wins that were certainly much more lopsided than the score depicted.

However, the MLS side didn't dominate the game, the title played on the physicality.

If Lebron isn't trying and doesn't care, no not really. If one team thinks it really matters and the other doesn't care, it doesn't matter because it's not a real competition. If an NFL team is 15-0 playing a 4-11 team in the last week of the season and the 15-0 team rests all of its starters and loses, is it a big deal for the 4-11 team? No.

Did you watch the game? Hate to beat a dead horse but we are talking about the performance of the MLS players, not the result of the game.
