Odds on which team is most likely to lose to a lower division club?
Charlotte Eagles are a good team that would be in D1 if not for financal reasons and they will give Chivas a real run IMHO. I wouldn't be surprised to see Chivas fall to the Eagles.
We all know Chicago or Dallas aint losin since this year's form is a DRASTIC improvement from last year's form and Chivas already has experience playing lower level sides.
Didn't Wilmington beat Dallas two years ago?
Yep - payback is going to be a B. Our team is better, we're playing at home, and we're hungry. Clarke has always taken the USOC seriously.
Me personally, I think Chivas has a better chance of losing - longer trip, worse team (with the cut players, they are also going to be short until they can bring in the new players on August 15.)
Then again, Minnesota has put the hurt on MLS before.
I do think Chicago and Dallas ought to do okay.
I know this is slightly going off-topic, but I truly feel that Metrostars have the tools to go all the way in the USOC (I know Sachin aint gonna agree to that though ).
I think NE (or possibly Chicago) might have something to say about that, too.
I'll certainly agree that with Meola, Razov and Guevara, the Metro have the tools.
