Los Angeles Galaxy are the favourites to win the 2012 MLS Cup after ending a six-year wait to be crowned champions of Major League Soccer last season
The Galaxy ruled US Soccer in 2011 by storming to the MLS title, and it is no surprise to see them being made the favourites to repeat this year. The California franchise boast two of the most lethal forwards in world football in Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane, and there is the small matter of a certain Mr David Beckham.
Beckham needs no introduction as he is possibly the most well-known footballer on the planet. The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan star gave Major League Soccer a huge boost in profile when he made the move to California five years ago, and he finally got his hands on silverware last November. Beckham’s contract expire after the MLS Cup final win, but reports are suggesting he will be staying put after opting against a move to Paris St Germain. If Beckham stays, the Galaxy will take some beating in 2012.
The Houston Dynamo were the beaten finalists in 2011 and Dominic Kinnear’s side will be looking to make another run at it this year. They certainly have the talent to do that and Kinnear will be hoping star man Brad Davis will be fully fit to lead his side after suffering a torn quadriceps during the conference final last season.
The New York Red Bulls were dumped out of the playoffs by Los Angeles and they boast the services of former France, Barcelona and Arsenal star Thierry Henry. Henry’s undoubted ability means he is always capable to single-handedly winning a game for the “Big Apple” franchise, and having won some of world football’s biggest prizes his experience could prove decisive this season.
