1) How does the US team stack up against teams in Europe or SA? Are they better than any of them this time around? Is the 2014 squad going to be better than 2010? I know nothing.
2) How many designated players does each team get in the MLS? New fan...
3) What are the top 10 forwards in the MLS?
1) We're kind of a mess right now as far as a lack of direction. We keep shuffling guys in and out, changing our tactics, etc., but when we find a consistent lineup/formation we will be alright. We're definitely a mid-tier team though, and our long-time stalwarts (Donovan, Bocanegra, Cherundolo, and even Dempsey) will be at the tail-end of their careers, so we need our young guys to step up and prove themselves.
3.) In my opinion, not in order:
Henry, Wondolowski, Keane, Saborio, Montero, Pontius, Sapong, Cooper, Espindola, Eddie Johnson. And if you consider Donovan a forward then he'd be on the list of course.
