2010 MLS: The Best or Worst Year Ever for Your Team?
|Which teams can possibly set a new all time best or worst in this 2010 regular season? Here's how each team is currently doing compared to their previous seasons:|
(ranked by PPG, regular season only, shootouts counted as draws)
Seven teams can possibly still call 2010 their best ever season. One, Real Salt Lake, has already clinched that distinction (and Philadelphia too, of course).
In order to clinch their best all time record, here's a list of what point total each of those teams needs to end up with. Also, I've listed what they need to do to achieve it.
Points Needed for Best Ever Season
For CLB-SEA-TOR, the #1 spot could be achieved with one fewer point depending on the goal differential.
NY seems like the best bet (maybe the only bet). Even though DAL is currently at a best ever pace, I'm thinking the injuries will have to catch up sometime.
Now how about the flip side? Here's the teams that could have their worst ever team. I've listed the maximum number of points they could gain and still get that status.
Points Needed for Worst Ever Season
Here's how to read this. DC can gain no more than 10 points in their final 6 games to have their worst ever season. If they gain 11, then it's not their worst.
Like the previous table, there are a few teams here which could gain a single point more and still be the worst team thanks to goal differential. They are CHI-NE-SEA.
Houston is a single dropped point away from confirming this as their worst season. They, DC, and SEA easily could all end up being the worst team.
