    It's either FC Dallas, San Jose or Columbus Crew. I like the Crew bit so maybe them..

    We have many people from US here. If they feel like chatting MLS, it's easier to find a topic..

    Well the league will benefit from that.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    Publicity wise, yeah its the best thing for it, but i cant honestly see it changing that much, Europe will always be where the Top players will play. and Older, past their prime players may now take the Big money move to the MLS when they cant cut it at the top....

    Strangely enough, the league may not benefit from it at all.

    As huge of stars as some of these players are outside of the USA, they are not even slightly popular inside the USA (MLS). They are not on Pepsi, Coke, or any other commercials (ok Henry was on ONE Gillette commercial). They are rarely in the news for more than 2 seconds (hell I've never even seen Lionel Messi on ESPN Sportscenter ffs). / exaggeration.

    The only player with any clout to come in to MLS is Beckham because of his appearance/world wide appeal and not because of his footballing skills.

    Henry and Raul will not be a big deal outside of the fans already inside the MLS circle because they are just not marketable.

    That is not true there is interest for sure and these stars coming will make the league get much more coverage in the states

    hell ill drive 10 hours to columbus when Raul plays there to abuse him and curse him with my Barça and catalunya flags

    Hopefully the effect will be more like Beckham's rather than Ljungberg's

    Its not as if the league is currently busting out talent left and right, how could it possibly be a bad thing to have quality players finish their career here? The league is still in the process of gaining a stable fanbase and having recognizable names can only help.

    Nobody here knew who Ljungberg was, Henry is a much much more recognizable figure and he will certainly draw some attention

    It will help this league to get popular outside the usa too.
    For exemple, in France, we NEVER have any news about this league.
    If Henry play in it, I'm pretty sure they will sometimes talk about it.
