Whilst watching the DC United vs Toronto FC Major League Soccer Game I was struck by an interesting fact. When Jamie Moreno entered the game at the beginning of the Second Half that made three players who used to play for the "big" three North-East of England football teams on an MLS field at the same time. The more remarkable thing is that there was one representing all of the teams:-
Jamie Moreno (DC United) - Middlesbrough
Carl Robinson (Toronto FC) - Sunderland
Laurent Robert (Toronto FC) - Newcastle United.
DC won the game 4-1 so I guess Teeside beats Wearside and Tyneside!!
