We are a day away from the 2010 Rhinos season.

The $1 million question is who is more prepared for the season to open? 

Despite the fact that Miami FC will have the biggest name on the field in former MLS MVP Christian Gomez, I have a feeling that head coach Bob Lilley will have the better prepared team.

And in the end, soccer is a team sport and that's why I think that the Rhinos will be able to get a good result with a 1-1 draw in Miami.

Soccer America

After reading this, I'm wondering if they have the Rhinos finishing six like in the list or seven like they have in the little team capsule list?

Either way, I doubt Soccer America has the Rhinos where the team itself sees it finishing.

Although, I would expect the future MLS clubs to have the firepower to do well in 2010.

I also wonder if AC St Louis will struggle as much as Soccer America figures.
