Leaving a top European league and returning to the United States tends to have a negative impact on both player performance and audience perception (see Bradley, Michael). Bedoya left Nantes earlier this year and now plays close to home for the Philadephia Union. Not coincidentally, his ASN 100 stock has fallen in recent months, and his U.S. national team starting spot seems far less secure than it did a six months ago.
