It hasn’t been easy to be a San Jose Earthquakes fan for the last decade. There hasn’t been a lot of success on the field, and one of the few bright spots was the play of Chris Wondolowski. Wondo finally retired at the end of the 2021 season just short of his 39th birthday, and he steps away from the MLS as the leading goal scorer in league history with 171 goals. San Jose brought in Jamiro Monteiro and Jan Gregus this offseason to spark the offense, but there isn’t a lot of optimism coming into 2022.

San Jose Earthquakes 2022 Preview

The Earthquakes appear likely to miss out on the playoffs once again with a 3-5-5 record through the first 13 games of the season. However, this club has been much better up front than anyone would have believed at the start of the year. Jeremy Ebobisse is one of the top goal scorers in the MLS with seven goals and an assist, and Cristian Espinoza has shined with four goals and six assists. Monteiro has played well for the Earthquakes too, making this one of the best offenses in the West.

The problem has been the MLS’ worst defense by a country mile. San Jose has allowed 29 goals through 13 games, as manager Matias Almeyda was unable to connect with the club. Things have been better since his departure though, and the expected goals numbers show that this club may be ready to turn some heads.

Over the last two decades, there have been a lot of ups and downs with soccer in San Jose. The San Jose Earthquakes were one of the original franchises of Major League Soccer, starting off as the San Jose Clash back in 1996. It took them six years until they made their first postseason appearance, but when they did it was a doozy.

The San Jose Earthquakes won the whole enchilada in their first trip to the postseason. They knocked off the Los Angeles Galaxy 2-1 to win the 2001 MLS Cup, avenging their loss to their rivals in an epic penalty kick confrontation in the U.S. Open Cup earlier in the year. San Jose went on to win the 2003 MLS Cup as well, and the Earthquakes finished with one of the top two records in the Western Conference four times between 2001 and 2005.

Unfortunately, despite their success, the San Jose Earthquakes moved to Houston and eventually became the Houston Dynamo at the end of the 2005 season. The owners noted the lack of a soccer-specific stadium, but the attendance had been dreadful too. Following their inaugural season, San Jose had failed to average more than 15,000 fans a game up until they moved even though they were continually one of the best teams in the MLS.

After a two-year hiatus, soccer returned to San Jose. However, the attendance woes continued until the Earthquakes moved into Avaya Stadium in 2015. With a soccer-specific stadium finally built, soccer is here to stay in San Jose. Sadly, the product on the pitch has not been strong, as the Earthquakes haven’t finished better than 6th in the conference since 2012.
