Are the Crew Ready the Next Season?

October 31, 2008

The regular season is over; none of it counts in the playoffs. So with a “new” season starting, are the Crew going to win MLS Cup?

No:

  • Too much can happen in a winner take all game, and they will trip up
  • They have not played a game of consequence in nearly a month
  • Kansas City is hot
  • They have not beaten Chicago all year
  • It has been five years since a Shield winner won MLS Cup
  • The Crew have looked shaky on offense for several weeks

Yes:

  • The Crew won the Supporters Shield
  • They had the second best offense this year
  • Third stingiest defense in the league
  • This is not a team that folds
  • 11-2-2 record at home
  • Schelotto

It is going to be tough series of games, but I think there are going to be a lot of people that underestimate the Crew and are in for a surprise. Chicago and Houston may be a glamorous pick, but the Crew have all the pieces to list the (new) MLS Cup.
