Bold Predictions Round 17

My biggest takeaway from 16 is that LA truly suck at home and Alessandrini is the MVP. Moving on we have SKC’s defense is legit (but that attack needs to pull it together) and ATL is going to the Eastern Conference Finals if not all the way to the MLS Cup. Boy did I almost nail that ATL-CLB scoreline. If …

Bold Predictions Round 16

Well Round 14 was a doozy. There may be some angry readers out there who followed my gut, but all I have to say is you win some and lose some. But man was Round 14 rough. I mean RSL got destroyed. I was definitely in need of a break in Round 15 and thankfully there were hardly any games …

Bold Predictions Round 14

Let’s see how last week went. Minnesota and Ramirez did almost exactly as expected and I still think Ramirez could’ve come away with a brace, but let’s not focus on that. Minnesota got a huge win against Orlando at home and if you listened to me and picked up Ramirez you were happy. As for New England, if you listened …

Bold Predictions Round 13

Hello Hello, sorry for the break in Bold Predictions. Living in the countryside of Japan has complications like the time difference, losing wifi for a month and lots of community involvement. My wifi is back up and running now and for the time being I should be back on track. Bold Predictions Round 13 Now let’s see I believe I …

Bold Predictions Round 11

My record is a little unbalanced, but I’ll take 3-3-4 and expect this to look a bit better after the weekend is over. It appears my Minnesota pick was a week too early. We all saw Minnesota bring it to the stingiest defense in all of MLS. Yes there was some rotation, and they were coming off a short rest, …

Round 9: Schweinsteiger and Minnesota get it done!

I’d admit to being a little over confident in the Revs. They ended up winning neither of the 2 games and let in 2 goals and not one. However, they did manage to keep a clean sheet in one and looked dangerous at times, but were still missing that final something. Honestly the Revs weren’t good. They were playing at …

Round 8: Revs Hit Their Stride at Home

Sorry for the absence in Round 7. Between too many quality matchups and some other things there was no article. Moving on, let’s recap my last set of picks and talk about my new record (3-3-2). Chicago did it! They looked like the team we all hoped for during preseason. They brought the all out attacking style of the Crew …

Bold Predictions Round 6: Rise of Schweinsteiger

I’ll be adding draws to my record after last week, because that’s all there was. This puts me at 2-2-2 on the year. My predictions may have been a bit too bold (at least the New England one), because the Timbers were playing out of their minds. The problem isn’t that New England’s attack is lacking. The issue is in …

Bold Predictions Round 5: Sticking with Form

I’d say round 3 was a good round for me and now my Bold Predictions are sitting at 2-2, not bad right? Well it doesn’t really matter actually, because my job is to care as little as possible about what you guys think and just be right, which I am. If you checked out my bold captain pick for Round …

Bold Predictions Round 3 – Expansion Dominance

Bold predictions are back for round 3 as bold as ever. On the year I’m 0 for 2 on my predictions, but I don’t regret them at all. It was just a little bad luck. Anyway, in Round 3 we will cover our favorite fantasy expansion team, Atlanta United and our under-the-weather expansion team, Minnesota United. This week I’m also …
