MLS starting back up....


Recommended Posts

Now that the strike has been averted, the MLS season is set to begin tomorrow night in Seattle with the expansion Philadelphia Union playing the Sounders

This is shaping up to be a pretty interesting season to say the least. Obviously David Beckham will not be involved much, if it all, and other mainstays such as Cuauhtemoc Blanco have moved on to different leagues. And then there's the question of whether or not Landon Donovan moves to Europe permanently after the World Cup. That being said, there are plenty of talented young American players coming up in MLS right now such as Omar Gonzalez, Sam Cronin, Brek Shea, and Ike Opara.

For my money, Seattle Sounders in the West and Columbus Crew in the East are the two best teams top to bottom although Real Salt Lake and Toronto FC should have good seasons.

A decent preview is up at CNNSI: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/steve_davis/03/23/mls.west.previews/index.html & http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/steve_davis/03/22/mls.east.previews/index.html

Two new stadiums will be opening as well,

New York's Red Bull Arena:


And PPL Park in Chester, PA where the Philadelphia Union will play starting in June:

Fantastic news for American Football and those stadiums are lovely and pleasing that its just a stadium for the fitba and not for anything else.

I'll read this article later on too, thanks for posting that.
