I have some questions about MLS for those that are familiar with it:

1) How many tiers below the top Europe leagues are they?

2) I have heard that the MLS game is different and built more on power and size, is this the case?

3) What % of MLS players are from the US?

1) It can get pretty bad, to be honest. I mean, compare Giovinco's first season in MLS to at Juve. Or look at Josef Martinez.

2) I would definitely say it's more physical and less organized, maybe a bit faster as a result. Of course we don't have the most technically advanced players here so you have to base your game around something. NYCFC tries to be more possession-based but even still.

3)According to this, it was 43.5% in 2017 and declining, not sure about now. To be expected I guess considering its growth.

I very much hope this changes though.
