Default 2011 MLS thread



And before you say shit about the MLS remember it's on the rise.. The growth it has made in 5 years has been tremendous. This year two new teams in Vancouver and Portland, both are rumored to have great fanbases.

Top teams for the year imo should be LA Beckhams, New York Red Bulls and the Seattle Sounders. Galaxy have Donovan, Beckham, Angel,
New York has Henry, Marquez, Lindpere, Solli,and Ream + Agudelo who are Top US prospects.

Tomorrow the season kicks off with LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders on ESPN 2. Should be a great match.

you seem to have forgotten about FC Dallas and reigning league MVP David Ferreira.

I like FC Dallas, lots of young talent on that roster but I don't think there a top3-4 team. They lost some players this offseason but they are stockpiled with young talent.

How do the Crew look? I don't know much about them, but live Soccer is always fun. I make it to a game every so often.

Rebuilding mode.. They were pretty damn good last year but they showed sign of old age at the end of the season. In the offseason they let go alot of their core players... I don't expect much from the Crew this year and it's the owners fault for being cheap as well..

I can see ESPN escalating the MLS this year if the NFL and NBA locks out.

Well obviously.. They'll show more EPL games most likely but ESPN will probably be filled with labor talks 24/7...

It's going to be a rough year!

Dude, WTF happened to Toronto this offseason. They barely have a team of 11 players let alone any quality players.

I feel bad for Toronto since they have a pretty good fanbase and much potential.

I'm angry that San Jose was beastly, left, and then another team came in and is far less beastly.

I'm bummed I'm not gonna be able to watch the opening match. Imma get into the MLS a lot this year.

I think Evans is listed as probable but Seattle may be without Zakuani for the game against Galaxy which would be a pretty big blow for them.

I'm so pumped for the game against the Sounders!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently JPA and Omar will be out for the night according to Hopkins, but it is the only source so I don't know how reliable it is.

I just found out that N'kufo cut ties with the Sounders.. That's a bit shocking as he was there DP signing this past summer.

I just want to see Donovan and Becks play. Shame that JPA is out as i'll be rooting for him in LA.

I'm just hyped for the year. Losing Buddle still is blah to me, but JPA has always been one of my favorites, plus, I'm glad Juninho was kept and I want to see how AJD and Omar improved and if Franklin has tapped out or is getting cose.

Without JPA & Cristman, the Gals offense will struggle but the loss of Omar hurts more with Berhlater being old and I'm not sure if Leanardo can start in the middle.
