Oh the media monkeys and their junket junkies will invite you to their plastic pantomime. Throw their invites away.

Ortega and Palermo to MLS?

Two more Argentines may be trekking to the United States, according to MLS Rumors.

Longtime River Plate attacking midfielder Ariel “The Little Donkey” Ortega reportedly has been negotiating with FC Dallas.  The 34-year-old scored 19 goals in 97 appearances for Argentina, appearing in the 1994, 1998 and 2002 World Cups.  In his pomp, Ortega was considered one of the world’s elite dribblers.  He also played in Europe for Valencia, Sampdoria, Parma and Fenerbahçe.


Striker Martin Palermo has been linked with the Houston Dynamo.  Palermo, 35, excited the soccer world in the late 90s. scoring 81 goals in 102 appearances for Boca Juniors, though two leg injuries marred his time in Spain with Villarreal and Real Betis.  His return to Boca revitalized his career, with 75 goals in 127 appearances since 2004.  Palermo also played briefly, though notably, for Argentina, as he became the only player ever to miss three penalties in the same match against Columbia in 1999.


Both players had careers in Argentina as good, if not better than reigning MLS MVP Schelotto.  Both could affect the league similarly.
