^same here although I agree with 2tone's sentiment that Toronto will be vastly improved next season. I love their additions of Irwin, Beitashour and Moor. They may not be glamourous acquisitions but these are the types of players you need to be successful in MLS. You can't just forget about the defensive unit altogether because you signed a legitimate superstar in Giovinco. Toronto appears to have figured this out and NYCFC would be wise to take note.

Speaking of NYCFC with how the rosters currently stand which team will have the better record in 2016 NYCFC or Orlando? I'm going with Orlando.

Looking back at my 2015 predictions. ..it was some good Mostly bad.

I didn't Giovinco would turn in the greatest freaking season in MLS history. Kamara as well.

Dwyer was meh for most of the season. Gonzalez was OK but he wasn't MLS best defender like I thought he was in 2014. Ciman was in the back of my mind but I chose Omar.

Most of the playoff teams I got correct except the two expansion teams. Orlando was close to a playoff berth so it wasn't too bad. NYCFC was blergh especially their defense.

So here are my 2016 predictions

Top goal scorer- Altidore
Top assist man- Ignacio Piatti
Defender of the year- Parkhurst
Rookie of the Year- Jack Harrison
Goalkeeper of the year-Steve Clark
MVP- Giovinco
Supportes Shield- FC Dallas
MLS Cup Final- Dallas vs Columbus
Champs-Columbus

East Playoff teams (in no particular order )

Montreal
Columbus
Orlando
Toronto
NYRB
NE

West Playoff teams (in no particular order )

LA
Portland
Vancouver
Seattle
Dallas
SKC
