Monday “Meh” list: quick recap of the slightly overrated

Benny Feilhaber-SKC

People, places and things we noticed during Major League Soccer’s preseason that land on the over-done or overly praised side. Not necessarily awful but, you know, just “meh.”

  • LA Galaxy season opening attendance
  • Any attempted excuse for that ridiculous Chivas USA opening day attendance
  • Power rankings for clubs after one week (Patience, please!)
  • Chicago striker Maicon Santos
  • Any Chicago Fire forward who cannot start in front of Maicon Santos
  • Protein / power bars
  • SKC’s rebuilt midfield (rescued heroically by “right wing” Graham Zusi)
  • Benny Feilhaber’s impact in SKC debut
  • Concerns over Miami’s second stab at MLS
  • David Ferreira stationed out wide in FCD midfield
  • Needlessly overly extended national anthems
