    Zlatan was brought in for name recognition and to score goals. From that perspective he's gonna do that, especially against the competition he will face in the MLS.

    He did look a bit out of practice as he moved awkwardly at times with the ball at his feet, but that will change as he trains regularly and plays week in and week out.

    I usually do not watch the MLS, but I am curious to see how he does, so I will be watching a bit more now.

    And that is exactly why they threw money at him.

    Perfect reply.

    Just have to keep in mind that you aren’t tuning in to watch the game, you are there for all the crap on the sidelines.

    Granted, without advertising we wouldn’t have anything to watch on TV but MLS seems to have such a tight grip on the short term cash, they are missing out on building a long term product

    I understand that the dough is surprisingly modest. Like $3m per year? Could that be right?

    Part of his fee is being covered by the severance from his English club. Part of it from TAM money from the Galaxy. He's not one of the 3 Designated Players for the LA Galaxy-- Allesandrini, Gio, and Jona. Each MLS team is limited to 3 DPs which is why the League is roughly balanced, as opposed to La Liga or other European leagues where 2-4 teams dominated.
