24 Under 24: The expert panel and voting process
Image
Nine of the most respected names
in national media circles comprised this year's voters


For the second annual MLSsoccer.com 24 Under 24 list of the top players in MLS under the age of 24, MLSsoccer.com enlisted the help of nine of the most respected national soccer observers. Their votes were tallied along with those of the MLSsoccer.com editorial staff to establish the final rankings of this year’s edition of the 24 Under 24.

The 24 Under 24 panel
• Jeff Carlisle (ESPN.com)
• Marc Connolly (ESPN)
• Steve Davis (SI.com)
• Brian Dunseth (FOX Soccer)
• Allen Hopkins (FOX Soccer)
• Alexi Lalas (ESPN)
• Kyle Martino (FOX Soccer)
• Taylor Twellman (ESPN)
• Grant Wahl (SI.com)

The Voting Process
Each member of the panel submitted his top 24 MLS players under the age of 24 based on grades in five categories:
• current skill
• upside potential
• intangibles
• Q-rating
• future transfer value

Each player was then assigned a point total based on the final position on each panelist’s ballot. A player received 24 points for earning the top spot on a media member’s Top 24 list all the way down to a single point for the No. 24-ranked player. The totals for each of the 10 voters (including one vote for the MLSsoccer.com editiorial staff) were then added together to determine the players' final score and ranking.

New Impact head coach Jesse Marsch hard at work preparing for MLS debut
Image

Marsch’s priority has been finding players who will form the team’s inaugural MLS roster.

“We’re already down the road with a number of guys. There will be some announcements coming. “We don’t want to announce everybody, because it’s important not to show all our cards before the league’s expansion draft.

The Impact will be front and centre at the MSL Expansion Draft on Nov. 22, two days after the MLS Cup final is played in Carson, Calif. The Impact will be allowed to pick a total of 10 players from unprotected lists of the 18 other MLS teams. Each of those teams can protect a maximum of 11 players. Homegrown players – those who live or train in an MLS team’s territory for at least one season – those in the Generation Adidas youth development program in the U.S., and designated players with no-trade clauses cannot be selected

The Impact will also pick first at the 2012 MLS Super Draft in early January, and shortly after that will continue to fill roster spots at the MSL Supplemental Draft

No Impact players have contracts for 2012, and all current contracts will expire by the end of October. The Impact can keep as many players as it wants from its current lineup going into MLS, and also has the right to negotiate with one player currently playing in the NASL or the U.S.-based United Soccer Leagues

MLS Commissioner "big proponent" of new format for MLS Cup final
Image
Garber visits Vancouver, discusses title game, playoffs, and downtown stadiums


WATCH: http://www.mlssoccer.com/videos?catid=114&id=19680

Although there is no timeline on a potential change in the format for the title match, Garber did hint once more that the new league schedule for 2012 – which he said would be released a lot earlier than last season -- will likely not be balanced and instead the league may adopt a format that “can take advantage of a number of key rivalries.”

Nine points separate postseason contenders; who misses the cut?


There are 18 days left in the MLS regular season, and 10 teams are still vying for seven remaining playoff positions.

And the field is crowded: nine points separate the contenders. For those on the outside of the postseason picture looking in, there's no margin for error, and those on the inside looking out do so with more than a small amount of nervousness as they fight to punch their ticket to the dance.

Seven of these teams will get in. But what about the three that will miss out?

Garber: NYC still aim for 20th team, but Cosmos not ready
Commissoner Garber: Investors interested, stadium may be closer

Image

While revealing that he was hosting three prospective investors for a New York team in his suite at Red Bull Arena, the Commissioner also indicated that the New York Cosmos are not at the forefront of the discussions.

“I don’t know that they’re involved,” Garber said. “They’ve got some things that they’re trying to work out within their ownership group. But as I‘ve said many times, I applaud what they’ve been doing. They’re doing a great job building their brand and when we’re ready to get that team launched and they want to be a part of it, we’ll be happy to talk to them.”

Regardless of the status of the various investor groups, however, Garber was unequivocal that the key to landing a second team in New York City was a stadium plan. He cited Flushing Meadow Park, the area around Citi Field, home of baseball's New York Mets, and Randall’s Island as the areas that are being studied

MLS releases details of Montreal expansion draft
Impact will select 10 players during draft on November 23

Image

Head coach Jesse Marsch and the 2012 expansion Montreal Impact have signed two players to date: defender Nelson Rivas and midfielder Hassoun Camara. On Wednesday, they learned when they'll be able to get some teammates, as MLS announced the date and details of the 2012 MLS Expansion Draft.

The draft will take place on Wednesday, November 23, beginning at 2 pm ET.

As in past years, the expansion draft will last 10 rounds, meaning the Impact will select 10 players.

Current MLS clubs will be allowed to protect 11 players from their 2011 roster, though there are several categories of players who have special status. Generation adidas players and Homegrown Players on the team’s Off-budget Roster are automatically protected, without counting as one of the team’s 11 protected spots.

Designated Players do not have to be protected unless the player’s contract includes a no-trade clause.

Clubs must submit their protected roster to MLS on Monday, November 21.

Saborio nets 2 as RSL take imposing 3-0 lead vs. Seattle in West semifinal

Image
SANDY, Utah — RSL looked nothing like a team that hadn’t won in more than a month. With Will Johnson, Kyle Beckerman, and Javier Morales all back in the starting lineup, the Claret-and-Cobalt controlled the tempo from the outset en route to a dominating 3-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders in the first leg of their Western Conference semifinal matchup at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night.

Álvaro Saborío scored two goals and Ned Grabavoy added the third as RSL took a commanding lead heading into the return match on Wednesday night at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field (10 pm ET; ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, ESPN3.com; live chat on MLSsoccer.com).
