Real Salt Lake Favoured by 36%
In a poll running on the MLS Daily Site, respondents are asked to vote on which side they think will win this year’s Western Conference. Real Salt Lake are leading comfortably with 36% of the vote, but surprisingly expansion side, Sounders FC, are running second with 14%.
They are marginally ahead of LA Galaxy and current Champions Houston Dynamo. Dynamo have of course lost Nate Jaqua to the Sounders and Dwayne de Rosario to Toronto, and look offensively less strong than last season. Salt Lake finished last season with a clean regular season record of 10 wins, 10 draws and 10 defeats, so their elevation is a little surprising but very encouraging for them.
