You were doing so well Real Salt Lake until your complete melt down to the Galaxy in leg two of the Western Conference Semi-finals. Also you started the 2014 season extremely well until that fateful trip to Seattle on May 31st. Yes, I know. Your team was missing a lot of players because of international call-ups but so were the Sounders. Salt Lake needs to add depth to their squad if they want to make a deep run in 2015.

The bright side for the San Jose Earthquakes is that they no longer have to play at Buck Shaw Stadium. That place was an eye sore for MLS. They will be playing in fancy new digs this year and I’m sure they will find a way to price gouge their fans and away supporters as well. Oh yea, I almost forgot. You get a new coach as well. The Western Conference is going to be extremely tough in 2015 so I don’t see them making the playoffs next year, but who knows.
