Chivas USA

May 1, 2011

Chivas USA came into the league in 2005 and struggled to gain a foothold. The sister club of renowned Mexican side Chivas de Guadalajara, Chivas USA had a muddled approach to building a roster which stunted their growth. Modest playoff success has yet to result in a trip to the MLS Cup final. “The Goats” currently sit near the bottom of the standings.

KEY PLAYER:
Jimmy Conrad has developed a reputation as one of MLS’ funniest players. His appearances in various forms of media and his musings on his blog have offered a light-hearted look at the league for years. He’s also a rock in central defense. Having played with Kansas City for years, Chivas USA took Conrad in the re-entry draft once K.C. no longer felt they were getting value for his salary. Conrad is tasked with rebuilding one of MLS’ leakiest defenses.

STADIUM SITUATION:
Chivas USA shares the Home Depot Center with the Los Angeles Galaxy. The stadium is located in Carson, CA and Chivas has played their since joining the league in 2005.

MAJOR TROPHIES WON:
None.
