The New York Cosmos: Now with Brian McBride!

CosmosTest

So here it is. The first non-youth team that will don the colors of the fabled NY Cosmos since the Reagan administration. What do you think? There’s some great old names there like Fabio Cannavaro, Brian McBride and Brad Friedel but there’s quite a lot of young blood from the academy.

Sure, they’ll most likely be sacrificial lambs for Paul Scholes' going out party but hey, there are worst things to achieve as a young American soccer player than playing alongside Patrick Vierea and Gary Neville against Manchester United at Old Trafford wearing the same kit that Pele & Beckenbauer wore. Basically it’s like being in an Oasis cover band and still getting to play Wembley.

Freak. Show. At least when this has been done in the past it was to raise money for something worth while. This time it's an All Star team regifted in NASL colors that don't matter anymore on a one game contract.

This has gimmick written all over it and I'm not going to waste my time watching.*

*Even though I really want to because McBride is playing and the team make up really does remind me of something you'd see from the 70's. Brilliant. I really want to watch. Damn them.

The Cosmos make it so easy to dislike them. It's like we have our very own Man City.

You chose Oasis for your analogy? Why not something like the Stone Roses or the Smiths?

So, I do not really consider it may have success.

Paul Scholes is one of the est players that have been in Manchester United and he was so good that when he retired Ferguson got him to come back because the team did need him
