Portrait Of The Young Man.

Over in North America they have a pub-standard league known as the MLS, which until the arrival of a certain individual was ignored pretty much everywhere. Now this league differs in the way that some players are signed for the teams. It is based on one used in another league – the NFL – and this is a draft system.
