Shaun Bartlett was woeful in the Premiership.
Steve Howey was an average player at best and has an injury history as long as my arm.
Matthaeus was on holiday and older than my Gran.
Whatever you say about Steve Nicol the guy is a Liverpool legend... top player and a decent coach.
There is no point comparing the MLS and the Premiership, its just chalk and cheese. Most of the good championship teams are stronger than the MLS teams also.
