The New York Cosmos: Now with Brian McBride!
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.
