Sean Wheelock interview with Phil Woosman "We use to have a competition called the Trans-Atlantic Cup. Two teams from our league, the winner of the Soccer Bowl (NASL's annual championship), and the one with the best record in the league from number of points gained in the season, would play against two top quality teams from overseas. We ran it for six years, and in no year did any of those foreign teams win it. That just showed exactly what a quality league the NASL was. It was such an amazing impact we had on the world, it wasn't just what was going on in this country. The rest of the world was impressed at what was going on. The Cosmos would go on tours pre-season and post-season, and they would be successful wherever they went, playing the top teams over there. (Wheelock's Note: The Trans-Atlantic Cup was held from 1980-1984. NASL clubs compiled a record of 13 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses versus some of the top clubs in the world, including AS Roma, Celtic, Barcelona, and Sao Paulo.)" This seems like a great idea for MLS. Have the two teams with the best records around all star time play each other to determine who plays the winner of two international teams. The two losing teams play each other. I'd rather see that than the all star game.
