Some players like David Beckham, Thierry Henry and Robbie Keane embrace the experience that is Major League Soccer. Others like Steven Gerrard do not. They cannot wait to get back to their homeland.

I thought that Gerrard could be a star in MLS like Beckham was. The former England captain arrived in LA with a lot of fanfare, but unlike Beckham, Gerrard seems to be in Major League Soccer more for the money than the challenge of winning trophies.

I'm a believer. I had been holding out judgment on our Philadelphia Union for a long time. Sure I was excited at their improved quality, but I wanted to see how they did against someone like the LA Galaxy. Well, I'm all in now. The Union dominated this game. Aside from the obviously important two goals, I never felt very threatened by the league darlings.

Ever since the 2013 season, Jose Goncalves has been a staple of the New England Revolution. One match away from his 100th start for head coach Jay Heaps' side, the Portuguese center back's guile and physicality are typically reassuring presences, home or away.
