As far as I know you are allowed 3 salary cap exceptions to allow foreign players or huge local players (Donovan)

But with $3m, you're not going to get much quality, are you sure that's right? Most of the players on Chelsea or Man City's roster earn that in themselves. Their overall budgets are well over $100m

In terms of age, peak is 25-30 in general. But their decline all depend on how important their physical skills are to them. Lampard for example has lasted extraordinary well, but isn't going to be as good as he has been for Chelsea and won't quite have the stamina

They are indeed. Man Utd have the highest wage bill in English football paying £214.8m or $324.22m.

One of The most important things for a Club is to have a junior team, base teams, thats is the cheapest and most effective way of succeeding in football. Neymar, Ronaldo, Messi all come from that. Americans teams does not put proper money on that comparing with Brazilian and Spanish clubs. Hiring star can be costly and they might not end up play well with others. That's why some Asian teams are not successful, even though they have star power.

The American leagues are set up completely differently though. They don't invest in junior teams because it would be a huge waste of money. They get their young players through a draft, so why bother paying money developing young players when other teams will get them instead of you?

Is the roster any good? http://www.nycfc.com/players (Mix Diskerud isn't listed on the site yet.)

What age do soccer players begin to breakdown?

Does David Beckham know what he's talking about here? http://www.espnfc.com/major-league-soccer/story/1770788/david-beckham-says-mls-salary-cap-needs-to-goreport

Manchester City are majority owners of NYC. Will Manchester use this to abuse and screw over NYC?

People have already given their opinion but thought I'd give mine.

1) Yes, with Fat Frank alone. However, he's out on loan at Man City (the parent club) much to the annoyance of a lot of people (Financial fair play rules being questioned).

2) Majority outfield players 32 up. There are exceptions, Fat Frank on NYC for one. Ryan Giggs was 40 before he retired. Pirlo is another great example, sometimes skill comes with experience. Keepers on the other had can go until they are late 30s.

3) Yes, Beckham knows his sh**

4) Yes, see Fat Frank. :P



Hmm, pie.

Will Manchester use this to abuse and screw over NYC?

They already have lol.



The first thing you need to know about soccer is, you don't call it soccer.

I dont mean to brag, but I'm probably the biggest soccer fan on VGChartz. I have seen ads for the world cup, played 2 different FIFA games on my friends X1, and played soccer 3 times in 6th grade. I pretty much know everything you could ever wanna know. Anyway, getting to your questions:

Yes, the roster is good. Did you see the Patrick Mullins guy in that roster pic? He has a fap-tabulous smile. And he's 22, which by the way, is an even number -which is always good.

David Beckham always knows what he's talking about.

And yes, Manchester will abuse NYC, but that's fine because it is well known that NYC is very masochist and enjoys it.


THE FACT you call it Soccer is bad enough, Yuck man .

There are a lot of benefits in this, like identification of the club, players that are used to play with each other for a longer time, and overtraining to be given a chance. 

They don't have interest enough in Football in the country to spent a lot of money in expensive young players like Neymar, the majority of big names are 30 years far from the prime. 

To set up junior teams could increase the interest in the  sport in the young generation, which could make it more popular there.

P.S: Another point Ka-pi, is that European clubs pay a buckloads of money in those players, which could bring a lot of money for these clubs, and improve even more their conditions.

Yeah, I agree it is a better system and they probably would benefit from it. But that isn't the way Americans do their sports. I can understand their way as well though, the way they do it is fairer for the smaller teams. Everyone has a chance to get the promising young players, while having youth teams and academies the richest teams are usually going to have the best players as they can spend the most money on developing players.

I would say Man U need to get their wage bill under control, but their commercial deals and huge stadium mean they just have such a huge amount of money they could spend more. They could actually afford Messi

The MLS salary cap is only at $3 million. Think about that!

Correct. If a player's salary exceeds 350,000/year, then they qualify for a Designated Player slot. Each team can have 3 DP slots. These are usually used for top Hispanic players, older elite European players, or good USMNT players (Dempsey, Donavan, Bradley, Jones, etc.)

Salary cap is expected to nearly double as it should. MLS needs to be able to keep their younger players and be able to entice young players to skip college.
