Is there an unwritten rule in sports that the Eastern conference has to be the weaker one? Sure seems like it lol
Don't remind me. I can't stand that the West has been rocking us in Bball the last decade or so.
But like Bball, I think the East is slowly tipping the power back its way.
: Lampard, Villa, Xavi (?) Jermain Defoe lit the league up quite a bit, I think these guys will, too.
: Who knows what they will look like next year but credit to Mike Petke, he's finally brought stability to the club and they are consistently in the top 5 of the Eastern Conference finally.
will either keep Jermain or find a high caliber replacement, Michael Bradley was playing with a bum foot all year, Gilberto began to catch on in the second half of the season, could be much better next year.
: Not a flashy team but they get results. Owner owns Inter Milan, too. Would be nice to see some synergy.
: Quietly were transforming into one of the best clubs in the league before Jermaine Jones was added -- now they're even better.
: Ugh. I hate Chicago. A large market club that acts like a small market club. Added a few nice players this year but are going to need a lot more
: Who knows? Why did they get rid of Jack Mac? Might be in the playoffs if not for that...
l: owners now own Bologna as well should be interesting to see if there's any synergy there. They have pretty determined owners it seems.
: a very proud team and city like SKC or Portland -- except they have Kaka. Should be interesting to see how they do.
: In my opinion, the most Western Conference-ish Eastern Conference team next year. Small club that is very smartly managed and plays well.
Money-wise, our conference should kill their conference. If Chicago and DC would start spending like they should and RB figure out if they're staying or going. When Miami comes in we should definitely be the better conference.
