How good is MLS? One study says not very good at all.

Kartik Krishnaiyer, of Major League Soccer talk had an interesting article posted today on his blog. According to the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS), MLS is not very good. In fact they rate MLS quite poorly at 77th in the world, something I don’t even begin to agree with. Now I grant you, MLS is certainly not one of the better leagues in the world. But 77th? Come on!

I posted a response on the MLS Talk blog comments and you can read my thoughts there. The blog is worthwhile checking out because of the interesting comments from readers, who are mostly in disagreement with the rankings. By the way, here are just a few leagues that are supposedly better than MLS: Singapore, Belarus, Latvia, Zimbabwe and Lebanon. Not a chance!!!
