Soccer Prophets: MLS and Revolution Predictions

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

None of us claim to be experts, or pophets, but we will attempt to be with our season predictions for the 2013 New England Revolution and Major League Soccer.

The New England Revolution's season opener against the Chicago Fire this Saturday is nearly upon us. With every new season comes hope, possibility and wild speculation. A positive performance tonight could springboard the Revs into the 2013 season, raise the morale of the collective and fill some seats.

Recently, I emailed my fellow bloggers and asked them to fill in the below table with their predictions. We ask that you share your predictions with us. We'll check back at season's end and see who really knows what the hell they are talking about.

Are we sauced up on Kraft Brand Kool-Aid here? 50% of us have the Revs sliding into the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Do Matty and I just have low expectations for Donnie Smith or do we expect him to surprise you all? Is Kelyn Rowe primed for a breakout year just because everyone at MLSsoccer.com said so?

Next I surveyed the boys for their predictions for overall league wide stats. (Completed before Week 1)

We're going to cut Abram some slack here, Chivas least goals against? I assume he meant they'd have the most goals scored against them. All in all, relatively safe predictions all around with Seattle, San Jose and Sporting KC the clear favorites for 2013.
