Questions to ponder with MLS in 10th year

Here are my (Glenn Davis) top story lines to follow this season, in no particular order:
  • Freddy Adu — What will his sophomore season bring?
  • LD — Landon Donovan's performance for the Los Angeles Galaxy (by the way, how do you feel San Jose fans?) will be scrutinized
  • Foreign talent — Complementing native talent with foreign talent is a tricky business in MLS.
  • New strike partnerships — There are some intriguing pairs who will be playing up front in MLS, pairings that could provide a boatload of goals.
  • Coaches and GMs —- More responsibility than ever will be placed on general managers and coaches to provide not only results but entertainment value.
  • Loss of star players — World Cup qualifying, the Gold Cup and FIFA Youth World Championships will rob MLS of top talent for key games.
  • New stadium for FC Dallas
  • Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake — How will these teams fare on the field and at the gate?
  • Future of San Jose and Kansas City — Both head coaches, Dominic Kinnear and Bob Gansler, are heading up squads that might be relocated.
  • Houston area talent in MLS — Nine local area players are currently performing in MLS
