The reigning Supporters Shield winners are taking a hit this season. Last year was fantastic, but it was a tad fluky. They were undeniably excellent, but it took comically dominant seasons from Carles Gil and Matt Turner, plus elite or career years from just about everyone else in the squad to reach last year's heights. Even with Turner set to leave and regression imminent, the talent is still there for a good playoff team and MLS Cup contender.
