Rapids Podcast: All things considered as MLS 2014 gets going

East, West, who will be the best? Fleming and Lindholm gaze into their crystal ball

The 2014 edition of MLS kicks off across North America this weekend, though the Colorado Rapids must wait another week before they are up and running, away to the New York Red Bulls.

And so, with that in mind, this week's Rapids Podcast hears from three rookies hoping to take the league by storm - Jared Watts, Grant Van De Casteele and Marlon Hairston.

Also, podcast co-hosts David Lindholm and Richard Fleming give some insight into the Rapids camp, with the team yet to confirm a head coach, and offer up their thoughts on who will rise and fall during the 2014 campaign. Plus, there is the now regular feature of 'Numpty of the Week'.
