I have a good feeling about MLS teams this year. I think the Wizards and (effing) United have a good chance of playing well and performing.

I don't know, I don't think DC will do that well. Forgetting the MLS Cup Final, the Wizards are a great defensive unit. In away games United will struggle to play the defensive style that is many times required, as their only form of attack is defense. If I were to pick, I believe the Wiz will advance further due to better defense.

As we all know in football, defense prevails over attack.

But what good is a solid defense if you can't score goals? DC proved to be solid enough to take out KC and I think they will do better in the CONCACAF Champions Cup as well.

But we all know Columbus would do the best out of all the teams ;)
