Everyone’s favorite guitar-strumming World Cup-hero-turned-MLS-executive-turned ESPN-analyst ginger has a new gig, informing the people who read The Mirror about how things are going on the soccer football front here in America.
Alexi’s introductory paragraph is exactly what you would expect.
Greetings people of the United Kingdom! Welcome to your new, weekly shot of 100-proof Major League Soccer. Quick, smooth and potent. I’ll keep you up to date on all the comings and goings, the good and the bad, the ugly and the bizarre from our rapidly growing league over on this side of the Atlantic.
Alexi riffs on the topic du jour in Major League Soccer, the referees, and the fallout over some questionable decisions. More accurately, he spends his first Mirror column talking about a player his new audience is familiar with, Thierry Henry.
