In FIFA.com's latest instalment of its Have Your Say series, the question heads to North America. Which of the 14 sides currently comprising Major League Soccer will win the 13th MLS season which kicks off this weekend?
Many are pointing to Landon Donovan and David Beckham to guide LA Galaxy to their first crown since 2005. With a new coach in former Holland AC Milan legend Ruud Gullit and the return of former scoring ace Carlos 'El Pescadito' Ruiz, fans in the LA area are hoping for the best. Houston Dynamo, though, are the two-time reigning champions of MLS and their competitive, creative spark Dwayne De Rosario is hoping to make it three from three.
Over on the East Coast, DC United welcome the massively talented former Argentina international Marcello Gallardo to the fold, where he will slot in alongside Brazilian league player of the year for 2007, Luciano Emilio.
New England Revolution, and their goal machine Taylor Twellman, will be hoping to put the disappointment of the last three seasons (when then twice lost in MLS' one-off championship game) right with a first-ever crown. Neighbours Red Bull New York will also be in the running and hoping Juan Pablo Angel can pick up where he left off last year, namely on the scoresheet.
Chicago Fire are led by Mexican icon Cuauhtémoc Blanco, Columbus Crew have Argentine gem Guillermo Barros Schelotto in the side and Kansas City Wizards picked up former Valencia striker Claudio 'El Piojo' Lopez to replace the EPL-bound Eddie Johnson. The Colorado Rapids will be counting, as ever, on Pablo Mastroeni and new Argentina creator Christian Gomez.
In addition to the League's old guard, some of the new boys
are hoping to make their mark in 2008. Chivas USA, who finished
best in the west during last year's regular season, sophomore
side Toronto FC, Real Salt Lake and the returning San Jose
Earthquakes will all be keen on making a major mark in Major League
Soccer's 14th year.
