Huge Red Bulls fan as of mid year last year. Between the new stadium (probably the best one in MLS) and the Henry rumors I decided to check things out. Quickly realized that MLS soccer has come a long way compared to 10 years ago when the quality just wasn't good enough. Now it's pretty exciting. It was no mistake that so many of the European teams came over last year in their preseason and were getting outplayed.
Anyway, RBNY look extremely good this year. Agudelo is going to be a star, if he isn't already and they added a couple of really good players. The new guy Tainio played Defensive mid last week and was excellent. Marquez and Ream are as good as you get passing out of the back end.
Union are good and will be good considering they have a very good coach. Once they prove that they are a solid team this year, I think they'll spend the money and add a Designated Player during the next transfer window. No idea who it could be, but anything would improve the team. Expecting the Red Bulls to add their 3rd and final DP as well.
