Here are the 10 things we learned from the 21stweek of the MLS season.

1. Pirlo!

Andrea Pirlo is royalty. There is no other way to explain why opposing players refuse to tackle him, refuse to harass him, refuse, really, to even look threateningly at him.

Pirlo played just a shade over 30 minutes in his NYCFC debut on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, and he was absolutely magnificent.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week 20 of the MLS season.

1. The Galaxy Raise The Stakes

A fair number in MLS would tell you that the 2014 LA Galaxy was the league's best attacking team ever. The front six – Juninho, Marcelo Sarvas, Stefan Ishizaki, Landon Donovan, Gyasi Zardes, and Robbie Keane – combined for 68 goals in the regular season, and added nine more in the postseason en route to the team's fifth MLS Cup.

If the Los Angeles Galaxy weren't the favourites to win the 2015 MLS Cup, and why wouldn't they be after winning three in the last four seasons, than they certainly should be now.

Not only did the Galaxy sign Steven Gerrard to a designated player contract last January for a reported $9 million, 18-month contract; but the team have now one-upped themselves with what is being called the "biggest signing of the summer".

The ability of splashy stars to drive attendance in Major League Soccer has long been overstated. The evidence over 20 years just doesn't support the narrative that adding one big star from Europe or Mexico will significantly move the attendance needle.

Of course, a figure as massive as David Beckham could be a game-changer in terms of adding seats in MLS grounds.

World Cup Buzz at related • 1 view

After weeks of speculation, Major League Soccer revealed on Wednesday a new funding mechanism intended to encourage clubs to invest in players that cost more than the league's maximum salary budget charge of $436,250.

In essence, the league is enticing its teams to utilize both of their Designated Player slots in exchange for $100,000 of 'Targeted Allocation Money,' over each of the next 5 years, for use in paying an additional player more than the max salary.
