Year in Review: Mike Magee Surprises Many with Stellar 2013 Season
Heading into the 2013 MLS season, not many people expected forward Mike Magee to have the stellar season he ended up having. Some thought he would earn more playing time with the LA Galaxy, but Magee definitely exceeded expectations in 2013.
Magee started the season with the Galaxy and started and played in 10 games before being traded to the Chicago Fire. It was a trade that shocked many, but Robbie Rogers wanted to play soccer again, but not for Chicago. He wanted to return closer to home and his family. As a result, Magee returned to his hometown and helped the Fire towards the playoffs. Clearly, the Fire won this trade, but it was a trade done more for the players than it was the teams.
Nonetheless, Magee went to Chicago and kept up his scoring. In 22 games with the Fire, Magee scored 15 goals and assisted on four others. Unfortunately, Mike Magee and other acquisitions could not help the team reach the playoffs.
On an individual level, Magee had his best MLS season. As a result, he won MLS MVP and put himself on the radar for further US Men’s National Team considerations. However, I do not think Magee gets a call-up before or during the 2014 World Cup as USMNT already has a talented group of scorers.
Overall, Magee’s 2013 soccer season was spent on both LA and Chicago, and he was a key player to both teams’ success on the field. As 2014 is almost here, the future is bright for Magee, as he and the Fire prepare to make the playoffs this season.
