I was just thinking about this morning, last year the east was far better than the west in terms of talent, and that may still hold true. However was the talent gap so large last year that the following didn’t matter and has it closed enough this year that the west will show the benefits of their one huge advantage over the east Sigi Schmid (Sounders) He is a great MLS coach. Dominic Kinnear (Dynamo) He is a great MLS coach. Frank Yallop (Quakes) He is a great MLS coach, lets not talk about national teams. Bruce Arena (Gals) Good coach, some of you might say great some of you might say average I say good. Jason Kreis (Real) Might have a good team this year after years of suck, jury is still out. Predrag Radosavljević (Chivas) Even their thug team plays a prettier game than ours. Gary Smith (Rapids) Plays a boring style but it might turn out to be effective. Schellas Hyndman (Dallas) Fail. Steve Nicol (Revs) Thug ball… but he has the best results from this group already how sad is that? Tom Soehn (United) Really this is who I’m putting second. Curt Onalfo (Wizards) Certainly he has potential. Robert Warzycha (Crew) Jury is still out, hasn’t done anything to write home about and I’m still putting him ahead of the last three. Juan Carlos Osorio (Red Bulls) Nice stretch of play to get to the cup other than that he’s the suck. Denis Hamlett (Fire) Umm… John Carver (Toronto) Shut up Carver.
