Tom Soehn became the fifth head coach in United history after Peter Nowak left to become assistant coach with the US men's national team. Soehn, who had served as an assistant under Nowak since 2004, got off to a slow start, beginning the season 0-3. The Black-and-Red, however, rebounded and for the second consecutive season had the most potent attack in MLS. United won its fourth Supporters' Shield, becoming the first team in League history to win the trophy in back-to-back years. The addition of Brazilians Luciano Emilio and Fred, along with veterans Jaime Moreno, Christian Gomez and Ben Olsen helped the team score 56 regular season goals. In August, Moreno scored his 109th career regular season goal, breaking the MLS record. He finished the season with 112 career goals. The season was also highlighted by the club's participation in CONCACAF Champions' Cup, the inaugural SuperLiga and Copa Nisssan Sudamericana.
