Did you feel that? That little shiver down your spine as you clicked on this story to read it. Was it too much caffeine this morning? Or was it the sense that the beginning of spring and the MLS season are just around the corner. That’s right, we are less than a month away from First Kick 2012, as well as:
- The “new look” LA Galaxy defending their title
- Montreal Impact making their MLS debut
- Numerous new players taking the pitch for the first time
- New head coaches for Colorado, New England, and Vancouver
As we did last year, MLS Talk will go team by team over the next 20+ days to offer insight, analysis, and predictions for each team heading into the new season. This is in addition to the usual insightful thoughts from the Chris and Chris of U.S. soccer on the MLS Talk podcast. That’s right, we are offering double the amount of preseason coverage. After we examine each team (in alphabetical order) as well as a few of the major plots that will dominate the season, we will close with our preseason predictions including standings, MLS Cup and Supporters Shield winners, and individual award predictions.
Have anything you want to see or hear in our preseason posts? Have any predictions of your own? Leave them in the comments section. Tomorrow, our first team is the Chicago Fire.
