Alexi Lalas and Jermaine Jones got into a Twitter fight

Friday August 8th, 2014

U.S. men's national team star Jermaine Jones is not happy with ESPN soccer analyst and former USMNT member Alexi Lalas, who questioned why Jones was so reticent to join the MLS.

Jones then pointed out that perhaps Lalas' soccer insights were not always so sharp.

Lalas then retreated to the last bastion of the internet scoundrel, focusing on Jones' use of the term "Club of Death". Especially handy considering the midfielder was born in Germany, and English is his second language.

Jones is currently in talks to sign with the Chicago Fire of the MLS, but is reportedly asking for a bigger payday then the club is willing to part with.
