I hate them already...
Smug owner of Chivas USA unsurprisingly overconfident about his team's chances
The quote in question: ""Of course, we're going to be the best team in the United States,'' Vergara said."
OK, shitbag...let me break it down for you. Mexico's national team used to think they had a divine mandate to rule over all of CONCACAF with an iron fist...and I think you know what happened there. The USA got its shit together, became one of the best teams in the world, and have since long proven that they are, at worst, on par with our neighbors to the south. Our 2-0 win over them in the last World Cup still burns at them, I guarantee it. To assume that your expansion team is going to waltz in and blaze through MLS just because your shirts say "Chivas" on them means you're going to get quite the lesson when your boys begin MLS play.
MLS is even starting to win over some English onlookers, who are notorious for refusing to believe that we can play this game over on this side of the pond. What more do they have to do to prove that the quality of play is getting much better over here? Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra START for Fulham. Bobby Convey is going to be one of the best players the Scum have had in ages. Brad Freidel and Kasey Keller are proven Premiership goalkeepers.
I admit that Chivas Guadalajara has a proven track record in the Mexican league...and, I believe that they will, in time, be a force in MLS. But, it's not going to be simply because they have a name and their parent club is from Mexico...
...that, more than anything else, is why I have an undying hatred for anything having to do with Mexican soccer.
