25! A number that has a whole new meaning for the MLS this year. The league will be celebrating 25 years of existence having come a long way since its beginning. New coaches, players, and new franchises are what we can look forward to. On opening day, LA Galaxy will be visiting the Houston Dynamo at BBVA Stadium and there are a few things to look forward in this match.

Tab Ramos

In its inaugural MLS season, Tab was the first player signed by the league to play for the Metrostars while he was playing in Mexico for Tigres. A former USMNT player born in Uruguay has the necessary background to lead this Dynamo team to an above average season. His former coaching experiences include being an assistant for Jurgen Klinsmann for the U.S. as well as the head coach of the U-20 U.S.A. team. Houston will be his first big time opportunity to showcase his experience and tactical approach to soccer. He is a coach that is well known for developing players something the Dynamo have not been great at. Look for a 4-3-3 system with possession to be established in his first year.

Chicharito Hernandez

The new superstar of the MLS, Javier Hernandez will look to make an immediate impact on the field for his new club. The historic goal scorer for Mexico comes to Los Angeles after not having great scoring seasons the last two years in Europe. His tenacity, work ethic and ability to be at the right place still make him one of the most dangerous goal scorers in MLS. The LA Galaxy will look for this season to dethrone LAFC as the best club in Los Angeles and it all starts with Chicharito. Will he score on his MLS debut?

Fan Support

The Houston Dynamo have struggled to put people in the stands the last few years. The stadium tends to not be at half capacity for most of the season unless a big club with a big-name player is in the house. Most games last year, were due to either a highly competitive team or a player and not specifically Dynamo fans wanted to see. In this case, Mexican star, Javier Hernandez fills that role. Look for the game to be near capacity as Hernandez has been the most marketable player for the Mexican National team the last decade. The need for a superstar player is a must for the front office as it heads into a new season having missed the playoffs. The supporters groups like The Surge, El Batallon, and Texian Army lead a fan base that is ready for exciting times and most importantly winning performances.
