  • 2009 All-Star Game, Everton

We finally have an All-Star opponent for this year. Just as speculated before it turns out to be Everton FC of the EPL. This year’s game will be held at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City, UT.

What do you think of this announcement? I honestly love the idea of playing Everton.

    Honestly, I'm a little disappointed. RSL beat Everton 2-0 in 2007 and as an RSL fan I will readily admit that we weren't the strongest of teams that year. I like Everton, but I think the all-stars need a tougher opponent. AC Milan, Inter Milan, Chelsea and Club America will be in the US for the World Football Challenge, couldn't we have gotten one of them to play?

    RSL did win that game, but you have to remember that Everton was using that game as a friendly training game in their pre-season. While this will again be a pre-season training friendly for them I think they would take the All-Star game more seriously than the last game here in Utah.<br />
    And I don't think you can say that a team up for the FA Cup will not be a tough opponent.<br />

    And I would continue responding to your post, but I just noticed you would rather have Club America for the AS game, and I decided your whole post must have been a joke.
