With MLS Cup on the horizon, with it comes the conclusion of the 2010 season and a chance to look to next year. When planning for next year, a few teams with graduating Generation adidas players may have to juggle things a little bit.
This week, MLS indicated those players would graduate from the program. They include Eric Avila, Bruno Guarda and Brek Shea of FC Dallas, Stefan Frei of Toronto FC and Baggio Husidic of the Chicago Fire. Heres a look at the complete list:
Eric Avila (FC Dallas), Nico Colaluca (New England Revolution), Roger Espinoza (Kansas City), Stefan Frei (Toronto FC), Bruno Guarda (FC Dallas), Baggio Husidic (Chicago Fire), Fuad Ibrahim (Toronto FC), Chance Myers (Kansas City), Alex Nimo (Real Salt Lake), Ciaran OBrien (Colorado Rapids) and Brek Shea (FC Dallas).
Since these players will graduate prior to the Nov. 24 expansion draft, they would need to be protected or could possibly be selected by either Vancouver or Portland.
What do you think of the list? Who do you think could end up going to the Northwest?
