This Is Getting Deep
What's the biggest theme on the eve of the 18th season of MLS? This will be the year of the deep-lying striker, the guys say. If you enjoy what Jose Villarreal brings to the table, there's more where that came from in 2013. Plus, the Armchair Analyst predicts a return to the glory days of 2006-07 in Houston, and a seriously starving Shin Guardian helps to break down some of the tastiest matchups of opening weekend.
