#7 Larry Grant Without a doubt the NY/NJ MetroStars are the best team in MLSM and are good even after Branco and Donadoni retire with Miles Joseph and Mike Sorber Giovanni Savaresse and Shaun Bartlett around for ten years and Meola never retireing with a GAA over 1.5 when I have played. This team is great for at least ten years.
#6 Ryan Ahrens I think the best team at the start is NY/NJ, but they fade pretty fast, DC is very good for a long time without much work to upkeep their success. KC starts good but needs a lot of work to stay that way in a few years. In a few games I've played Colorado has been suprisingly dominant, but inconsistent. And LA, of course is always pretty good. However, in the long run I'd have to say that DC is the best in the game.
#5 Dylan Burger It is no contest as long as they're healthy, when nobody has signed anyone the metrostars dominate the game. Every other team has a weak position except maybe the galaxy who are not as strong at midfield.
#4 Hector Hipolito I believe that The LOS ANGELES GALAXY is the best team in MLSM right now. I just got thru a season without even losing once and I only got scored on about 10 times.
#3 Graeme Reid Dan is the man and Dan knows that the MetroStars are the number 1 team. Before without Branco, Washington was a close second but after signing Branco they smoke everyone. If you find a good youth... wow, no competition. Almost as dominant as AC in the Italian league. Ok maybe not.
#2 Dan Ryazansky Well, the Mighty Metro of course! I am not unbiased, you know! :)
#1 Jonathon Long I think Washington would probably be the best. They start out with a strong and young team. They win many championships (once again, depending on what players get picked up). Columbus isn't great at the start, but in the future they win multiple championships. I would say Washington and Columbus are the two best teams in the East. In the West, LA Galaxy are almost always good. Their only problem at the start is an old defense that retires in four years. But they do have a fairly young midfield and offense. They are the only team in the West worthy of even debating about (ok, KC is good, but they're old and will lose out). Overall, I think Washington is the best team in MLSM, with Columbus a close second, and LA 3rd.
A Description of the Debate PageWhy should I even have a debate page up on this mostly MLSM site. I figure that the majority of people who play MLSM are also avid MLS/Soccer fans. Soccer has gone through many changes in this past decade, to the pass-back to the keeper rule to the 1st Golden Goal in Euro '96. I'm also going out on a limb and guessing that many soccer fans are also opinionated like I am. So, what better way than to make a statement than letting the whole world see it on the web. Also, MLSM is an ever changing game, as evidenced by the constant roster updates that Dan puts out for release. Players change, as well as their teams and stats. This page offers a chance to weed out the best, the worst, and anything else we can think of! I will change the debate topic about once a month, or change due to interest or lack there of. I will post most e-mail concerning the topic (space permitting), and then change the responses along with the topic each month. I would like as much feedback as possible, beacause I don't want to just impose my views upon the masses, I'd like everybody's ideas. This will make for a much more interesting page, but it depends on your feedback. A few quick guidelines: one, PLEASE stay on topic. It not only annoys me but others who look for a soccer forum, only to have to sift through irrelevant garbage. And please, refrain from profanity if you can. Don't swear for the sake of swearing. Any portion of the letter not following the preceeding rules will be omitted for the good of society. I appreciate any and all ideas for this part of the page. I'd especially like topic ideas. Newly added is the debate archive. This is where all the previous debate topics will reside for your viewing pleasure. You can still respond to these topics if you feel inclined. Thanks...Charles.
