Tonight, the MLS All Stars take on 2 time defending Champions League winners Real Madrid. To the casual soccer fan, this is appealing. To those of who follow MLS, probably not so much. So, what if MLS went back to the West v East format they used from 1996-1997, 1999-2001, and 2004? Here's what we could see for starting XIs.
You may not agree 100% with my lineups here but, you get the gist. Would this game be more competitive? Hard to say. But you would definitely highlight more MLS players and that's a great thing, in my opinion, for the fans in the US and Canada that you're trying to sell MLS to.
