2014 EC Preview: Toronto FC

B&RU's Eastern Conference preview ends with a look at what has been for years the conference's running joke: Toronto FC. However, now they have guys like Michael Bradley and Jermaine Defoe. TFC in the playoffs? If not now, then when?

2014 EC Preview: Sporting Kansas City

In the penultimate B&RU preview of the East, we take a look at the defending champs. Sporting Kansas City didn't add any big names, but in keeping the band together & content they probably had a good offseason anyway. Can they improve on their 2013?

2014 EC Preview: Montreal Impact

Next up in B&RU's look at the rest of the East: The Montreal Impact. Despite making the playoffs, Montreal ended up making a coaching change rather than upgrade their roster. Will it be good enough for them to improve on 2013's inconsistent showing?

Five days to DCU: Sean Franklin

We are truly in the home stretch of the 2014 preseason, and with five days until the home opener on Saturday, the time has come to look at the new man wearing #5.

2014 EC Preview: Houston Dynamo

Houston is up next in B&RU's look around the East. Dominic Kinnear has assembled the same sort of roster as in past years, but the strengths and weaknesses have shifted to different points on the field. Could this be a down year for the Dynamo?
