There are some bold predictions from our staff, with every writer apart confident that Jason Kreis’ MLS expertise combining with City Football Group’s millions to land the first-year club in the postseason.

The fortunes for fellow expansion side Orlando are more varied, with only Duncan Day seeing Kaka and Co. in the playoffs.

Out West, things are little more predictable, excepting my lack of faith in Caleb Porter’s Timbers and Kyle Bonn pegging Real Salt Lake to finish second. I’d like to point out that it’s not anti-PDX bias that has me dropping the Timbers; I had them in sixth before last season and don’t feel they are much better off, especially with Diego Valeri coming off major surgery and missing some time.

So what do you think?
