It was a largely disappointing 2018 for the Colorado Rapids and their manager Anthony Hudson. In his first season in charge, Hudson guided the Rapids to a 11th place finish in the Western Conference with just 31 points from their 34 games. Hudson's team collected just 8 league wins and had the worst attack in the MLS notching just 36 league goals. The Rapids lost over half their league games losing 19 and that is a woeful record with only 3 sides losing more. In an attempt to have a much better season, Hudson has completely revamped the squad with plenty of arrivals and departures. The likes of Zac MacMath, Giles Barnes have departed the club with Marlon Hairston departing for Houston Dynamo. However, Hudson has been busy boosting his side and he certainly has strengthened their attack by signing Kei Kamara and Diego Rubio. Kamara arrives with bags of experience and goals in the MLS, having made over 350 appearances scoring over 100 times. Rubio also arrives with a good record scoring 14 in 38 games for Sporting Kansas City. While Nicolas Mezquida also arrives to add some much needed creativity in midfield.

Target


Will be desperate to improve following their poor 2018 season. They will be pushing for a higher league finish from 2018 and that would represent a good season. Entertaining their fans would also be a major improvement having suffered for much of 2018.

Season Review
2018

№21: Colorado Rapids

The Colorado Rapids would endure yet another horrific season in 2018, with the side from Commerce City finishing second bottom of the Western Conference table, with just thirty-one points to their name. Despite overhauling the roster at the start of the season, new manager Anthony Hudson struggled throughout the campaign, with his favoured 3-5-2 formation often ineffective against the majority of MLS opposition. Colorado started the season in fairly decent form, losing just one of their opening five games. An eight game losing streak would however, follow that result, with the Rapids’ season spiralling out of control after that. Edgar Castillo was perhaps the stand out performer for the Rapids at left back, with his energy, three goals, and five assists, helping Colorado on numerous occasions throughout the season. Castillo has however, already been transferred out to the New England Revolution, and will be a huge loss for the Rapids next season. Scoring goals was Colorado’s biggest problem over the course of the year, with Dominique Badji finishing as top scorer with just seven goals. The fact that centre back, Tommy Smith, had the next best return of four goals is emblematic of their dismal attacking ability. After such a poor season, it’s no surprise that Colorado have been so busy in the transfer market. Nicolas Mezquida has been brought in from Vancouver in a trade deal for back up goalkeeper, Zac MacMath. While the duo of Keegan Rosenberry and Diego Rubio have also been brought in, looking set to be regular starters. Veteran MLS striker Kei Kamara is the other big name move, joining Colorado from Vancouver.
