    I hope Yura makes it back to RSL. I always appreciated what he brought to the table and think he has a better chance of improving here than with Randers.
    Good luck with Randers Yura. You have all the right build, speed, and skills to succeed. You are just missing that x factor to become a top flight striker. Thank you so much for helping RSL win a championship.

    I can't agree with you more. The only thing holding soccer back in this country is money. MLS has been very wise to advance and build slowly, but until they can pay for deeper rosters, be able to attract a higher level of talent, which includes retaining a lot of the best American and Canadian talent, they won't catch the bigger leagues.
    The ticket buying soccer fanatic is out there in droves in the US, they just don't want to spend their money to watch what they consider (when comared to ManU, Real Madrid, etc.) a lower level of play. I don't watch the EPL, I watch MLS so it doesn't bother me.
    Speaking of Real Madrid, are they going to come and check out Rio Tinto any time soon?

    I'm on a five year assignment with my company to the US and have my family with me. My nine-year-old son has played football since age 3 in Germany and began to play with the largest club in Denver a year ago. He was shocked to find the skill level at this US club to be very similar to his quite successful German club.

    We have since watched youth football here from U9 though U17 and I can tell you that it will only be a matter of time before the US plays a World Cup final. Sure there are huge gaps that I see in US training and most coaches here have adequate ball skill but still lack the "feel" of the game. I see very little training in tactics compared to Germany but I'm optimistic about the future of the sport in this country.

    You may be correct that US football may be comparable to some of the smaller European nations but until the MLS pays more and consistently sustains a truly international level of play it will not attract the talent needed to compete in the 'big leagues'.

    He has made a great contribution to RSL and to MLS. I also wish him well.

    It's time to expose the myth that European soccer is universally better than soccer here in the US. Yes, leagues in England, Spain, Germany and Italy are undoubtedly better. But the same can't be said for the league Movsisyan is headed for, or for Scotland or for many other small leagues across the Atlantic. What Movsisyn may get is increased exposure. An argument can be made the the big European clubs will be more likely to notice him. For that reason, I wish him the best of luck despite feeling a little jilted that he's leaving RSL.

    RSL will miss Yura next season, he is still very young and capable of much much more. Maybe RSL will use some of that allocation money to lure him back when Rander's is relegated.
    "Good Luck Yura you have scored some of RSL's biggest goals the past two season's and you were a huge part of bringing a championship to Utah"
